American Federal Income Taxes: The Greatest Bargain in the World
I’ve always felt that the taxes I pay to live in America are a bargain. You’re kidding me? I only have to pay $x to live in this great country for a whole year? Where’s the catch?
Yep, I’m one of those screwy people who thinks paying taxes is patriotic. I want my taxes spent efficiently but I understand it takes real money to run a great country.
I’m dead broke now so I pay a pittance in taxes but I felt the same way when I was sending off many $100k’s a year during the fat mid-90’s years of MSFT options.
I’ve got a nephew who risks his life for America every day teaching student pilots how to fly C-130 Hercs. He’s a liberal who risked his ass in Iraq doing his duty. I like to think that my taxes pay part of his salary. Do you tea baggers really think he deserves a pay cut?
I am glad our President is being up front about the true costs of running the country in his budget – no longer fudging the cost of war.
I am grateful to be an American citizen and I gladly accept the responsibility of paying my dues.
My dollars wouldn’t be worth a dime if it wasn’t for the US government.
I hope you feel you got your money’s worth today.
Just another bleeding-heart liberal who values and loves his country enough not to belly-ache about the reasonable dues.
P.S.: “Tax and Spend” Democrats may tax income but “Borrow and Spend” Republicans tax equity – the Republican Incompetence Tax.
Time to work on Hel’s Bet.
