Although this year's tax deadline is 4/18, today marks the traditional tax deadline that looms in the public consciousness. As is typical, I make no complaints about paying taxes- the roads I use are paved, the water I drink is potable (for now), and the refuse I leave behind is picked up... ever since my first paycheck, I've looked upon paying taxes as the dues I pay for living in a somewhat functional society.
Not all Americans feel that way, and those who seek to reduce the financial constraints on the already wealthy also want to remove the regulatory constraints on them... even going so far as removing states' abilities to set clean water standards. The conservative judges (can't call them 'justices') on the Supreme Court believe in clean water, they just don't believe in affordable clean water. I'm sure that the individuals they want to reduce taxes on will be able to buy all the clean water they want.
Me? I believe in the common good, for the common people. I pay my taxes into the common fund... that's just common sense.
