Pie in the Sky

Gary Pearce posted the following on his BLOG (www.TalkingAboutPolitics.com):

“The most recent Elon Poll showed why politics is hard. Asked whether they support higher taxes or job cuts to balance the state budget, a majority ofNorth Carolinians just said no. They don’t want either.

No, that’s not logical. But voters don’t have to be logical.

This dilemma was captured recently by a cartoon. It showed one of those pie charts about where federal tax dollars go: Social Security, defense, Medicare and Medicaid, general government, etc.

Then it showed another chart. A small slice – maybe 2 percent – was “Programs That Benefit Me Personally.” The rest of the chart was labeled “Waste.”
