Rapper Cardi B Goes on Epic Rant About Taxes: "Where's my Receipt?"
Cardi B is, according to my Google searches, an American rapper from New York. Safe to say she's in the demonized one percent. I know very little about Cardi B, I admit. I've no idea where she lines up on policy, March Madness brackets, or her preferences in widow coverings: roman shades or curtains? But her rant against the government, specifically her own New York government, is platinum:

Yes, she makes ample use of the n-word. Again, I know so little about Cardi B, I could fill what I know of her in a thimble. Or a liberal's mental receptacle for "logic." Samesies.
Regardless of her choice in triggering words, she makes some damn good points. When you pay for anything, you always get a receipt of how your hard-earned dolla dolla bills were spent. Even your bill from the cable and phone companies document every single stupid "user" fee.
But the government? Not so much. You don't really see how your tax money is being wasted. Mostly because many on the hill haven't a clue either. Many are stuffing bills with pork like some kind of all you can eat brisket-eating competition. See also Rand Paul Tweets about 2018 Omnibus Bill. Finds a Crap Ton of Waste. That and if we knew how our money was being wasted, we might do more about it other than write hashtags.
When celebrities like Cardi B start asking reasonable questions like "How are you spending my money, n**g*r?" we might start sensing a shift. Who else would like to see exactly how our tax dollars are being wasted?
