Dear Congress: We Want Our Money Back

DailyTicker

When you buy something that turns out to be defective, what do you do? Return it and ask for your money back.

Well, if you’re one of the 125 million Americans who pays federal taxes, you’ve been paying for something that’s defective: the U.S. government. So, as I argue in the video above, it seems appropriate for taxpayers to demand a refund for every day the government they pay for remains shut down and fails to serve them.
