Taxes notorious for people hating them because, yes, when the government overtaxes for useless things that usually happened in Monarchies, they are wasted. However, if we actually put forth a budget and got the proper amount of tax from everyone, then there's the possibility of better healthcare for one. Roads could actually be fixed, we could be supplying more jobs by taxing the corporations that are taking ours away by outsourcing to India and China.
Seriously. Think of before, we had the Industrial Revolution here! Now that it's cheaper on taxes to companies to just have workers -not in america- the warehouses, plants, factories have shut down! We took away jobs and are complaining about not having enough of them. It's the fault of those responsible for not taxing enough and regulating company overgrowth.
