Wanna start your day by being pissed off? Nah, me neither, but it's the state of affairs these days.
Take a look at this article at Politifact.com: 51% of Americans paid NO income tax in 2009
So that's why tax-paying Americans feel burdened. We're carrying quite a load ( ~ bad jokes here ~).
Consumption tax is looking better, eh? Not that I support one, just saying that those who consume, IE EVERYONE, has to pay.
Senator Rubio made headlines last week when he had a novel idea: "We don't need new taxes, we need new taxpayers (3:37 tic mark).
Simple, smart, yet surely to be rejected by those not paying.
Yeah, pisses me off too.
