We shouldn't have to pay more than 25% if we even have to pay anything. Tax wasn't around until the politicians realized this was a never ending abyss of project funding. Remember the first tax was just on the very wealthy, then everybody got taxed. As the different programs continue and new ones are added, they look to the tax payers to fund them. I can tell you how to cut taxes for the tax payer. Stop giving billions to third world totalitarian regimes that keep the money. Stop these stupid studies like the sex life of a fruit fly funded for $750,000. Etc. etc. there are 1,000's of ways to cut tax and let the tax payer keep more of his pay check. We should be cutting tax not talking about raising it.
