When government provides a service it is free…

We are told that when government provides a service it is free, but of course nothing is free, because someone has to pay all the government employees, their overhead, and everything else that government does, buys, or appropriates. That “someone” is of course the taxpayers. Whenever socialist-minded politicians speak of “free” services, what they really mean is that the cost of the service will be hidden in taxes.
