I think we should pay for these things ourselves, not in taxes, or in the government’s hands, or any other way, because they are so much better than we could ever pay for them ourselves.
If we did, we’d have no room for anything else.
And the carpet is a huge waste of money, costing us more than $1 billion per year.
The curtains, I believe, should be paid for by the taxpayer.
We should not pay for anything by our own hands, and not just because we want to get rid of carpet and curtains, but because we do not want to lose the value of these things.
We’ve already lost so much of the value.
If the government is paying for it, then we ought to make sure that the government can use that money for anything it wants.
There’s no reason that the taxpayer should have to bear the cost.

I just don’t want to have to pay for it.
