Yea make us feel it

If they just grow through printing and borrowing, it lessens how terribly and hurtfully people will THINK they are being treated.

Unleash higher taxes on the population and I'll be we'll see people begin to complain about the spending.

It would be more honest.

They should itemize it too so you have to write checks to the Afgan war, to the debt/interest, to the wellfare state, etc.
