Last Taxpayer Standing

The popular American folklore that taxpaying citizens are the masters and government the servant might lead one to expect that taxpayers can sue the government when they think it has spent their money in a way that violates their rights. But that's not how the courts see the matter. By and large, taxpayers as such have no standing whatever to sue the government. Maybe the master is the servant and the servant the master.
The rest of this week's TGIF column, "Last Taxpayer Standing," is at the Foundation for Economic Education website.

I always knew there was something missing from the Bill of Rights, but I could not put my finger on it up until now .... the "Money Back Guarantee" amendment.
