Who creates the tax laws? Why, our fair and honest elected officials, right? Did a legislator/survivalist in Alabama decide he wanted some underground bunker installed on his property? Brainstorm!!! I'll legislate for a deduction for a fallout shelter.
We have to wonder which legislator in Arkansas has a blind friend or relative who can now get a deduction for the cars he buys for his wife, kids, or other relatives.
And if some lawmaker in Hawaii pays off a gardener, he can get a $3,000 deduction for that shrub in his yard.
This is insane and the American tax payers are footing the bill. These loopholes do not benefit the average American. They were created (and are still being created) by the very people for whom the loopholes will be of personal advantage.
Why donít we Americans ever become fed up and angry with this fleecing of our money?
