Into the U.S. Senate Rules were placed barriers to escape from the grip of the NANNY STATE. To cut taxes...for example...would require such an effort that only the smallest tax cuts would ever be permitted...thereby dooming the producer to a life of struggle and privation.
Yes...maybe...with ardor, luck and whatever else might arrive success can be achieved...even in this oppressive 2017 NANNY STATE...but...the season of victory is evanescent in as much as the "profit" aspect reduced...until so little left...the producer doesn't even begin in the first place. Why work all day if the product is grabbed by the socialist-government many ask as they refuse to begin to innovate...compete...or...invent.
Perhaps...GEORGE WASHINGTON was correct when he said liberty lost is never regained...and...the U.S. Senate Rules are meant to insure that proposition is never called into question.
