Are social services (like public schools) worth paying taxes for?

In a previous post, we talked about selective government, asking whether people should be permitted to choose which social services they want their taxes to pay for.  A recent segment on the Daily Show asks the more basic question: which are more important, social services or taxes? The report is funny, but also scary. Is it preferable to raise taxes or to make massive social cuts? And, if you choose to raise taxes, does your answer change if it is to pay for other people's social services, such as school for others' kids when you don't have any?
