I recently took a four-day trip to Zion National Park. The great freeway that whisked me there and the beautiful trails and facilities in the park were all paid for by taxes.
Because of these attractions, private businesses such as nearby motels and restaurants are able to succeed. Government regulation of the design of highways, cars and food safety in restaurants made me and my family safer.
Someday we will benefit from Medicare, Social Security and Obamacare, which provide economic security to us all. Likewise, our military, police and fire departments keep us safe. Taxes pay for education, the foundation for our future.
