So this is a bit longer, wordy post about an issue I confronted before on the radio and in other discussions. I do not think the term fiscal conservative means what people think it means.
The legislative session will discuss many policy changes. Governor Burgum suggested a change in the ND individual income tax. I provide a look at data from about the last 20 years in this post.
This ended up a longer post than I intended. I discuss current federal outlays and receipts and the debt limit. The sad fact is neither political party seem to treat the issue seriously.
I rant a bit (alright a great deal) about the supposed notion of fiscal restraint and fiscal discipline in the U.S. today.
