Quote of the week 2

This week’s quote comes from our very own Rafe Champion, who had this to say in a Catallaxy thread about ‘churning’:

Part of the problem is the body of opinion that thinks a dollar is somehow sanctified and made into a better kind of thing by passing in and out of the Treasury. So a dollar spent in public education is magically better than a dollar spent by an act of choice in a private school. And so on across the whole range of public provisions.

Churning is one of my personal pet hates, in part because it penalizes the poor. It also inevitably adds another (expensive) layer of bureaucratic administration.

'First we take from you; process it; then we give it back after you've filled in a bunch of silly forms'.
