Favors ‘Fair Tax’
I remember when a young co-worker received his first paycheck and was upset. He went to our manager and asked why his paycheck was not the value he knew it should be. It became clear that he did not understand taxes, and our manager proceeded to explain it to him. He was livid. Not only because he felt his money had been taken without his consent, but also because there was nothing he could do about it. At the time I thought it was crazy that he didn’t understand what was happening. Today I think it’s crazy that we are not upset about what is happening with respect to income taxes.
