Michael Tanner of the Cato Institute writes about Zombie spending in Washington. Old programs and taxes never die, they Zombify. A tax on long distance which was passed to fund the Spanish American War was finally repealed in 2006. The Rural Electrification Act which was passed during the heights of the Great Depression is still going strong as the Rural Utilities Service. The list goes on and on, but there doesn't seem to be much outrage. Perhaps the Zombies have taken over the Congress too.
