Why try to suceed and make more money, when you get taxed more. I got a 5 dollar per hour increase one year and ended up paying more taxes. It jumped me up to the next tax bracket, on the lower end, and I made less moeny the the year before. I say Flat Tax.

..... If you break something, then you may be asked to pay for it~
..... All taxation legislation was discussed and finally enacted into law by politicians, every one of which was elected by the voters as being the best of the best.
