More Funny, Less Money

As a share of GDP, taxes are the lowest they have been since the 1950’s.

In every crime novel you’ve ever read, every crime movie you’ve ever seen, they tell you to “follow the money”. What has happened to our economy was a crime. What is happening to our schools, our roads, our healthcare, our food safety, the very air we breathe, is a crime. Maybe we should follow the money.
