Tax Day was Monday. Tax Freedom Day is today. Americans can keep what they earn for the rest of the year. Up until today, they've been working for the government. This is a serious problem, and the 47%ers are a fraction of that problem. No wonder our country is stagnant in growth, the private sector is being squeezed.

Judge Learned Hand said. "There is nothing sinister in arranging one's affairs to pay the minimum tax possible!. That's why they write tax laws the way they do. If they ever rewrite the tax code, the next day they'll be making amendments to it.

Yea, the private sector. They are just getting squeezed to much. After taking more than 100% of the growth of our nation, after record profits, after more money in the bank than ever in history, they just aren't getting enough of our money. We gotta give them more and more and more till we starve to death.

Your money? The private sector IS THE ONLY PLACE revenue is generated, certainly not be the inept gubmint. It exists BECAUSE of the private sector, not the other way around. You have been on the dole too long. You surely are joking.
