The federal govrnmcnt · has not balanced its budget for nearly a decade. It has reached the "chionie deficit" stage. The politicians, although they feel that it is dangeious to try to seize any more of the people's wealth in the form of taxes, cannot resist the temptation to spend moie and more ^borrowed public money on the plea that the country is wealthy and need have no fear of a huge debt!

It is were not, the squandering office-holders would have wicckcd it long ago. But this wealth admittedly cannot all be confi catcd in the foim of taxes to pay the debts of government. The extreme limit of this kind of seizure has about been reached--hence government tax income is nearly at the maximum until the day when more wealth is created.
