Civics Quiz

Here's an on-line civics quiz at the Intercollegiate Studies Institute... They show some sad statistics. So I took the quiz while I waited for the coffee to brew. And I blew one question. Not bad for an over the hill pseudo blogger:

I should have waited until after I had coffee...

I didn't do as well...I got 3 wrong, including this one:

33) If taxes equal government spending, then:
A. government debt is zero
B. printing money no longer causes inflation
C. government is not helping anybody
D. tax per person equals government spending per person
E. tax loopholes and special-interest spending are absent

They say the correct answer is D. I guess that might be right if they said average tax per person equals average spending per person.

Technicalities are the last refuge of the scoundrel... And remember, it's a multiple guess test, so go for the one that best answers the question...
