A Quote by Martin L. Gross on anxiety, children, dependence, food, and government

If you're poor, Washington provides food stamps, Aid to Families with Dependent Children payments, and subsidized housing. If you're rich, you can buy tax-free municipal bonds and thumb your nose at the IRS. But if you're a working stiff, you can expect only anxiety and the government's hand deep in your pocket.

A Quote by Martin L. Gross on laws, men, understanding, and worth

The tax laws are written by men with considerable net worth, and with little understanding of what wage-earners must do to make ends meet.

A Quote by Martin L. Gross on disaster, economics, government, growth, history, jobs, manufacturing, money, people, time, and world

Government at all levels has emerged as our number one growth industry...for the first time in American history - even in the history of the Western industrialized world - there are more people working for government at all levels (18.7 million) than in manufacturing (18.1 million). Since manufacturing jobs make money while government jobs take money, this has become an equation for economic disaster.

A Quote by Martin L. Gross on constitution, force, income, people, privacy, questions, and sex

Every ten years, [the Census Bureau] force a large number of Americans to complete an expensive "long form," which was never mentioned in the Constitution. Not only do the Census probers ask name and address, but sex, race, income, property, household furnishings, and dozens of other irrelevant and impertinent questions. For those who refuse to answer, the Census people - unlike such pollsters as Roper or Gallup - threaten federal prosecution. Head counting is part of the Constitution, but this invasion of privacy is not.
