Thats the only thing they know. Tax the hell out of the people until their very basis of survival is threatened. But what do professional politicians care in the posh offices and limousines all paid by taxpayers? They dont. Their solution is always more taxes – until the people cant take it anymore and take to the streets. Trump is also a consequence of their arrogance. And there will be more of that because they just wont stop and look for solutions that actually work and let the people live. History repeats itself.
