join the group Pancho... we had to pay over 2000 dollars... oh and that free money the government is sending out ( I think it's a mistake) we get a total of $67.00. I really believe that there should be a FLAT TAX. The way we do it now is so unfair.

pdswife, I had a very "crabby" 10th English teacher a hundred years ago and remember him harping that NOTHING was fair in life and there was nothing as something for "free"-----now he looks very wise and not crabby at all-----I'm the crabby one now!!!

Well, I listened to a government spokes person, defending our prime minister, saying that in the UK, we now had the lowest direct taxation in Europe. She did did not mention the indirect taxation and the fact that every economist states that the amount of tax paid by people in this country (as a proportion of their income) has risen every year for decades.

Not so much what you want to hear, but what they think will get them re-elected, leaving the bad news in the very fine print.
