This is the first year I can remember where I'm actually angry about paying taxes. Why? Because while I am a progressive and fundamentally believe in the importance of government, I believe our government right now is taking our money - my money - and handing it over to very rich people on Wall Street.We can't have that. What if it were just going to government bureaucrats to waste as usual? Hey, no problem. Sirota continues,
I'd be happy paying my taxes - and indeed, happy paying higher taxes - if it was clear my government wasn't deliberately and overtly taking my money and handing it over to the political donor class that created this economic crisisHe's actually serious. I'm not sure where this guy has been his entire life. Apparently he thinks that the government hasn't been turning tax money over to the "political donor class" until just recently.
