Jefferson Recommends An ‘Interdiction Of All Useless Expenses’

02.27.13 10:01 PM

As the overhyped sequester approaches, the President and Congress are discussing (in public if not with each other) ways to avoid it by reducing government spending and/or raising taxes. During these discussions, they should all keep in mind the words of Thomas Jefferson in a letter to Marquis de Lafayette:
[A] rigid economy of the public contributions and absolute interdiction of all useless expenses will go far towards keeping the government honest and unoppressive.

Such a mindset would be a welcome change from the past 100 years’ worth of ever-growing and unbridled spending that have brought the country to default.
