Just a quick commentary. Why do some people, the left-wingers mainly, feel the need to punish people for making it life? We're told all our lives to work hard and make something of ourselves. Then when we do, Democrats feel the need to tax the hell out of us. The richest people of this country are already paying something like 95% or more of the total income tax each year, why isn't that enough for some. In May of last year, Michael Moore appeared on The O'Reilly Factor and told Bill that he thinks the rich should be paying somewhere around 70-80% of their income for taxes. That's outrageous. How is this fair? I think Steve Forbes had it right with his flat tax. Here's a quick rundown of his idea.

"Start by scrapping the tax code. Don't fiddle with it. Junk it. Throw it out. Bury it. Replace it with a pro-growth, pro-family tax cut that lowers tax rates to 17% across the board and expands exemptions for individuals and children so that a family of four would pay no taxes on the first $36,000 of income.
Not one cent to the IRS on the first $36,000. Anything over that would be taxed at a flat, fair 17%. "

Also, it wouldn't hurt the government to stop wasting our money on stupid stuff. Things like hundreds of thousand of dollars in grants for such stuff as the study of porn and it's affect on the female brain. Does porn make a woman horny? That's what the government is wasting our money on. Here's a great site that exposes all the crap like this, Citizens Against Government Waste. Eliminate this garbage, and taxes wouldn't have to be so high.
