That's just the income tax portion. There are many other taxes, both hidden and overt that we are paying. Did you read some of our other posts that enumerated them?

How about my paying $13.06 in tax on phone bill of $18.68? The bill I cited is fact, not fiction. The taxes and surcharges total a rate of 70%!

Or is it that some folks are so accustomed to paying exorbitant taxes that they just don't want to face it, and consider it "the cost of doing business"?
