It sure is odd that people are collecting SSI and paying quarterly taxes. It's my understanding these people paying quarterly taxes before retirement were usually self employed?

actually fica, (fed tax) and SSI are supposed to be two differant taxes that go for differant purposes, (check out your pay stub, seperate withholdings) If they were used that way instead of SSI going into the general fund. I would not "bitch"..
I believe what the point here is.. Most people do not mind paying thier fair share of taxes As long as it is used and spent responsibly.. which unfortunately it has not been..
When the gov. needs more money instead of cutting waste it just takes more out of our pockets..(I know it is a simplified analogy) trying not to get too bogged down on a complicated matter.

In 1999 it was reported on average 67 million inhabitants of the US did not pay or file their taxes. How much greater do you suppose that number is today? Nevermind the FACT that there is no law requiring the average American to even pay or file. How do you suppose they are dealing with those types of numbers when they cry tax evasion. Don't be suckered - they're not as powerful as they would have you believe. The people have been and will continue to be the Power in this country if not only through our sheer numbers.
