Who Pays?


Unfortunately, Duane Shank’s article ("Reform, Reduce, Destroy," April 2005) only scratched the surface in familiarizing your readers with Grover Norquist. The sheer hypocrisy of his "starve the beast" political strategy would have been fertile ground for a more in-depth analysis of his philosophy, tactics, and organization. He says he wants to reduce the power of government by cutting off its source of revenue, but one has yet to hear him decry the "borrow and spend" strategy by which this administration offsets the effects of its own tax cutting. And why? Because the bill for that strategy will be paid by the children and grandchildren of the middle class and poor.
