Reasons Not To Have An Automatic Signature

Among GOP, anti-tax orthodoxy runs deep - The Washington Post:
"I know it's too simple a solution but it could be a start, a flat consumer tax. A flat tax we all have to pay. No more IRS. We already pay way too much in taxes as citizens, the ones of us who do pay taxes. That's the point. We have so many entitlement programs and only so many taxpayers to support it all. Something has got to give and I say it should be entitlement programs and making everyone pay their fair share in taxes. We should not have to pay so much of our hard earned money to the government to redistribute our money nationally or globally. Smaller government, fewer entitlements. 
(Emphasis mine)

Wouldn't a rant about spending too much (including on foreign aid) be a bit more effective if it didn't end with a salute to one of the USA's largest client states? Just thinking out loud...
