Debt Service

Like Oliver Wendell Holmes (or so it is believed -- scroll down) I view taxes as one's payment for civilization. That's why I find it so frustrating to learn that so much of our tax dollars go to paying off old debts, most of them racked up during the Republican spending binges and tax giveaways of the last few years. It also doesn't help when the Bush-controlled IRS is now rewriting the tax rules to favor the superrich.
