Elections aren’t just about fiscal concerns
At election time, candidates provide a number of reasons why you should vote for them.
One that is often given, is that “I’ll be fiscally responsible.”
The carrot is that they will keep taxes in check and possibly reduce them.
Governments are not businesses.
Their responsibilities go beyond just fiscal responsibility. In no particular order, their responsibilities are: social, fiscal, environmental.
Fiscal responsibility is only one of the important aspects of good government.
