The Tax Toll

Funny how the Left never talks about government greed, and the toll it takes

The filing deadline for federal income tax is not a day for happy thoughts. Try this thought instead:

In 2016, Americans will pay roughly 20% more for their federal, state and local taxes than for their housing, food and clothing combined, according to an analysis by the Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan tax research organization.

In 2016, Americans will likely spend roughly $1.6 trillion on food, $2.1 trillion on housing and $360 billion on clothing, totaling about $4.1 trillion. Meanwhile, their total tax bill will be about $4.9 trillion ($3.34 trillion in federal taxes and $1.6trillion state and local taxes).
