Big Government

01. Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

-- Ronald Reagan (1986)

02. I don't make jokes. I just watch the government and report the facts.

-- Mark Twain (1866)

05. Talk is cheap...except when Congress does it.

-- Anonymous

06. The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other.

-- Ronald Reagan

07. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery.

-- Winston Churchill

08. The only difference between a tax man and a taxidermist is that the taxidermist leaves the skin.

-- Mark Twain

09. What this country needs are more unemployed politicians.
