Of Feasts and Famine


Gratitude Day 9- Government provided services

My grandfather once said- "I don't mind paying my taxes, I'm a citizen."
I have to agree. Tax funded services have done me a lot of good. Granted, I don't make that much money. I don't pay a ton of taxes.
With that being said-
I got grants to go through school
I use the roads
I use the libraries
I have received low cost health services
I enjoy park usage, local and state
I have been to many events sponsored by the municipal arts counsels

And that's only what I can think of off the top of my head. Some tax dollars may be squandered, but many of these programs do a ton of good.
