Compare the average household to the country: e.g. when a couple starts out they don’t require a lot to maintain themselves until children come along, and as the family grows more revenue is needed.
By and by, wages and salaries increase. Then, the children get old enough to care for themselves, so Mom joins the workforce to increase their revenue that helps pay for college, cars, clothes, tuition etc.
Somebody, show me how to have smaller government and less revenue with a growing population?
If we use the Ryan plan, we’ll have to reduce the population back to 1900 when government was small, with no wars, no social programs, no health care, no income tax, no cellphone and no TV.
So pick your poison.
