No, you're completely missing my point. Specific taxes are not intended to pay for specific items of spending (as a rule). Ideally, a tax, should be efficient, fair, harmless and easy to collect, which is why sales/VAT/income taxes are so popular. Balancing a government budget (which again, you're confusing with a household budget) has nothing to do with what it is that is taxed.
