    Life Inc. - Why we hate taxes (it's not what you think)


    Among those surveyed, only 38 percent said they pay more than their “fair share” in federal taxes, compared with 55 percent who answered affirmatively in a similar 2000 poll. By contrast 52 percent said they pay “about the right amount” in taxes, up from 41 percent in 2003.

    When asked what bothers them most about the federal tax system, only 11 percent cited the amount they pay in taxes. An overwhelming 57 percent cited the perception that wealthy people don’t pay their fare share, while 28 percent chose the complexity of the tax system.

    Here's my take.
    Think of taxes as a Homeowners association fee but the IRS takes the money and sends it to a Synagogue down the street when your sewer is still backing up and the roof is leaking.

    The right is going to tank with the people thinking this way.

    Now ask yourself why a party panders to the monirity of the votrers and expects to win?

    Maybe its all over but the counting and they take care of the counting?

    When nearly 50% of earners pay zero in income taxes or actually get more back than they paid in via refundable tax credits of course they're going to say they pay the right amount.

    DUH
