Voluntary taxes

Senator Harry Reid claims that taxes are voluntary, and that we don’t have employers collect taxes for the government.

Well knock me over with a feather; I’ve been preparing tax returns all these years under the impression that we were forced by government coercion to pay. And I seem to recall my last employer collecting federal income tax, social security tax and Medicare tax out of my pay and forwarding it to the U.S. Treasury. I guess I have just been one confused Aggie all this time.

Would someone out there volunteer to skip paying taxes this year based on Sen. Reid’s claim? Let me know how that works out for you.

Dim bulb from Searchlight indeed!
