"I like the tax cut, because now I can afford a better education for my son."
This was said by a man in California who was interviewed on TV the other day about the American election and the Bush tax cuts. This would never ever have been said in Sweden. Here, people think that higher taxes is the only way to better education. The reason? Government has monopolised education - and lots of other services - and created a society where one is allowed to buy any car, hot dog or medicin one likes, but not education. Or health care, elderly care, child care, etc. Thus, now we even have a government monopoly on thinking about these services. Choosing and paying by yourself is not an option. In America, the natural thought is that with lower taxes, you can afford things you like, not least education. And that is a better way to go; you get to choose, less money is wasted in inefficient public monopolies, growth can increase and a variety of companies can compete for your consuming.
