FEDERAL SPENDING
FEDERAL SPENDING
studioVin
Federal Spending is a topic that is fairly self-explanatory. Liberal-leaning people generally favor more spending on programs to help the poor and disadvantaged. They also argue that supporting public programs will inject money into the economy which will increase consumer spending and grow the economy. This spending plan requires an increase in tax revenue. Conservatives generally favor a decrease in federal spending and a decrease in taxes. They argue that individuals and businesses will reinvest more because they are paying less in taxes.
