Spain, Mexico, France, China, Washington, Japan, Ireland, Cuba, and elsewhere.
Please remember this stuff when you are told we don’t have enough tax dollars taken away from the tax payers to make Government “REALLY WORK for the poor (and “the environment”, etc.).”

The problem in Government is the lack of fiscal responsibility from the politicians at the “trough”. **
If this is true for local politics, how much MORE is it true for Federal Government?
