The IRS to Olympic Medal Winners: Congratulations . . . . . Now, turn over OUR share of YOUR winnings. American Olympians earn $25,000 for gold medals, $15,000 for silver, and $10,000 for bronze, paid for by the US Olympic Committee. The non-profit advocacy group Americans for Tax Reform reported “a gold medalist from Team USA could end up facing a tax bill of $9,900 per gold medal, $5,940 per silver medal, and $3,960 per bronze medal. Is this a “fair”tax based on what other Americans fork over to the IRS for their earnings . . . is the success of an Olympic gold medalist worth more than your success? Or, is their success unique in that it’s played out on an international stage giving all Americans and our government a priceless medal of “Honor and Pride” that should make their IRS debt marked “paid in full”.
A key element of both campaigns is that our infrastructure of roads, bridges and are crumbling and we must allocate billions of government dollars to either rebuild or repair them. The spending of tax dollars is justified because politicians claim it will create economic growth by creating jobs and just as important, provide American citizens with security and stability. This message by politicians and the media has been a dominate one for decades yet we never hear a refute to the theme of the state of our “crumbling” infrastructure. Is there information to contradict the message?

Advocates of infrastructure spending point to the glistening glass and steel of United Arab Republics’ futuristic airports, of French and Japan’s bullet-trains reaching 200 miles per hour, and of Germany’s dense autobahn network. Surely, they argue, the United States must be an infrastructure laggard when compared to these masterpieces of twenty-first century technology and innovation. But are these images representative? The United States is a country of almost four million square miles. Of course, it will have some shaky bridges, potholed roads, and suspect water systems. It has 600,000 bridges. But over the past 65 years, only 45 bridges have collapsed for an infinitesimal annual failure rate.
