I just cut a check to the IRS for my extension which will be mailed out promptly on 4/15.
As I cut the check, it dawned on me, this payment represents more money than I spend on housing, clothing, and food COMBINED last year.
Now what does ole Gordon get for this money he pays the feds.
Roads - Nope, I pay for those every time I buy a gallon of gasoline.
Schools - Nope, local and state taxes I pay.
Enforcement of our borders - Nope, to my knowledge we still don't receive these services.
If you can think of one thing good ole Gordon gets from the paying the feds more money than he spends on housing, clothing and food COMBINED, please let me know; maybe I'll stop screaming when I cut these checks.
