As the tax cut mania spreads, more and more public services are being cut. Some of you would have heard the appalling story of firefighters who stood by and watched a house burn down because the occupant had not paid a $75 fee for fire protection. That is yet another sign of how public services are now being privatized and will be available only to those who can afford to pay for them. Will police be next?
Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie satirized this trend a long time ago.
