are you nuts??we shouldn't know??? that is such a ridiculous statement---
if we are being taxed we have a right to know why and where and what it's paying
i want you to send me $30 bucks--it's a tax, i work for the irs and will make sure they get it. i'll send you my email----aklso i want it tomorrow
or there's a 10 buck late fee!
i expect you to send me it based on your reasoning. sucker-
don't ask don't tell---geez
i mean come on---i hope, maybe, you were being sarcastic
the US is based on checks and balances---also if we didn't imagine the spending that would go on----those taxes you pay would double!!!
also actually by law after we send our taxes in,,, by law,,,they're supposed to send us a statement showing the breakup of where our money went---yet
it doesn't happen---
can someone maybe help me with that law or where it's at.
i'm leaving for work shortly to work 3 hours for free to pay taxes so we can occupy a country we invaded for wmd's which had none to begin with
i bet you don't vote either based on "well my one vote won't make a difference" theory
well if we all didn't vote politicians would be more corrupt---more taxes---we need to watch everything.
if no one voted one person could pick the prez
also the saying -you give them an inch, they take a mile,, saying comes to mind
