For those concerned with the substantial fiscal problems of government, we have a solution. The solution is - Newcomers. Newcomers are those who will become part of our community in the future but who are not here yet. Like unidentified holders of a contingent remainder, newcomers are not yet around to vote, to peddle influence, or to protect their turf. Since newcomers are not here to complain, now is the time to shift burdens onto their shoulders. Make them pay a larger share of taxes. Assign to them a smaller share of government largesse. Thanks to disarray in American policy and law, sometimes this can happen.
