I think it all changed with the Great Depression and FDR's New Deal. They introduced the income tax. That never existed till then! The New Deal put us greatly into debt. During the Depression, FDR wanted to put everyone to work. Well, how is he going to pay all these people? He borrowed and borrowed and got us more and more into debt. Making all these federal programs. Yes, some were good programs. But I think that got the ball rolling. We have so many worthless programs and grants out there. So much waste....
So how do we get ourselves out of this hole? Let's make up some more taxes. Government just got bigger and bigger.
