This year Americans had a total tax bill of 4.9 Trillion Dollars or 31% of the nation's income. It took American's until April 24th to work off that debt or approximately one-third of the year. Now some of our liberal friends will argue that we benefit from that... and we do, but so do those that live on the largesse of our elected representatives.
When you add in all of our expenses, estimates for the total tax burden range from 43%-58%. There are a myriad of taxes and fees that are passed on to you in the expenses for goods and services, and you're paying for them whether you realize it or not.
