Americans Spend More on Taxes Than Food, Clothing, and Housing Combined


Great news — we are only a couple weeks away from Tax Freedom Day:

The day when the nation collectively has made enough money to pay its total tax burden for the year is three days later this year, according to a new report.

According to a report released Monday by the Tax Foundation, this year Tax Freedom Day falls 111 days into 2014, on April 21.

By April 21, to group says, Americans will have made enough to pay the $3 trillion in federal taxes and $1.5 trillion in state taxes – more than they will spend on food clothing and housing combined.

By any reasonable definition, this is slavery. Slavery does not become just because it has been inflicted by a tyranny of the majority — a majority consisting largely of government dependents deliberately discouraged from working and farmed for their votes the way chickens are farmed for eggs.

In 1900, when Americans paid less than 6 percent of their income to taxes the day fell on Jan. 22.

That’s why in 1900, we had a future.

In 2040, tax day will fall on December 26. Why not? The rate of government growth continues to accelerate, and few of us put up even token resistance.

Imagine the taxes he’ll have to pay to when the debt storm hits.
