What are you thoughts on taxes?
A necessary evil.
I would pay more of them in exchange for universal healthcare.
I don't think I have any thoughts on taxes at the moment. We paid them.
Don't like them. Plus I wish that the US would be like most of Europe and put the full price including taxes on items at stores/restaurants, as it makes life a whole lot easier.
I never dwell on them. They are just a fact of life.
A necessary evil. Although I feel they need to be reworked and a bit more fair. Equal distribution through out the incomes.
I think the government contains some of the worst bookkeepers ever known. I also think they should shop around a little more when it comes to buying WMDs. Seriously, if third world countries can buy them they're obviously paying a lot less than what we are.
There's gotta be an easier way to fund the government. I favor a graduated income tax with absolutely no exemptions or adjustments.
important because they pay for services that our government should provide.
I am not happy that in the US, the current tax laws allow corporations
to get out of paying their fair share. Twenty-five years ago in Massachusetts,
corporate taxes made up close to 20% of the state revenue stream. Now
corporations contribute something like 6% of the revenue stream.
Taxes are a necessary Fact of Life.
