There are consequences to a "government so small you can drown it in a bathtub"



And I would point out that $1 billion 2002 dollars adjusted for inflation is $1.32 billion, so this is worse than it looks.

1. yeah, people drown in bathtubs.

ok, it's snarky, but that's right, people have accidents, sometimes in bathtubs, and government-funded ambulances staffed with people who are often government employees and often government-trained come to their rescue and save lives.

it's just one tiny example of government helping people, often to the point of life-saving help. there are many others.

unless there's not enough funding for that sort of thing.

2. That's terrible. But you can also drown a whole city like Bush did with New Orleans.

Some things take GOVT initiative.
