Don’t forget to pay your taxes!
21 million illegal aliens — as well as the 51% of Americans who pay no federal income taxes — are depending on you!
Meanwhile, U.S. Senate Democrats took advantage of the worldwide focus of attention on the naming of a new Pope, to quietly release their first budget in four years.
The Senate’s Reid-Murray budget plan increases taxes by $1.5 trillion; avoids much-needed entitlement reforms; and increases spending compared to the current already unsustainable baseline — of a $162 billion spending jump from this year to the next, and spending continues to rise every year.
I have to take a day off from FOTM because I must spend the day doing the paperwork (income, deductible expenses, receipts, etc.) to hand to the H&R Block guy who’ll actually prepare our tax return.
Not only does the government exact its pound of flesh from us in taxes, we have to put in the time, labor, and money to prepare that pound of flesh.
What a great country! – Not.
