written by Ken GardnerHappy Tax Day, America! A few things to bring even more joy to your day. One, we already pay more in taxes than food, clothes, and shelter -- combined. Two, we already pay some of the highest corporate tax rates in the world -- either directly or through the prices we pay for goods and services. Three, President Obama thinks we don't pay enough. Not NEARLY enough. He has proposed 442 tax increases (not including Obamacare) since becoming president.
Why do we put up with it? Basically, because we keep on electing and electing Democrats. Why do we do that? Because too many people are too heavily invested in government and the wealth, favors, and power it redistributes, while others are control freaks who want to rule us and think that they can spend your money better than you can.
