Media acts like taxpayer money belongs to the government

NY Times:

Trump Tax Plan Would Shift Trillions From U.S. Coffers to the Richest


The vast majority of benefits would go to the highest earners and largest holders of wealth, analysts said, setting up a battle over the government’s strained resources.
Well, it is not the government's money, to begin with.  It is not like the government is paying rich people, although this story would certainly give that impression with the headline alone.  The inefficiency of government redistribution of money from the rich to those pushing the dependency agenda misses the importance of allowing people who earn money to select how they will invest it or spend it.  Those expenditures actually create nongovernment jobs that also result in taxes to the treasury.

While Democrats may look down their noses at people who buy yachts or hire someone to make custom furniture, those purchases create real jobs and not government handouts.  If the money saved on taxes is invested in a business, it also has the potential of creating jobs and growing the economy.  Why do liberals hate nongovernment job creation?
