Actually, I have regularly, out of pure laziness, neglected to take some of my tax credits. The majority of the American people are happy paying taxes, since the benefits; the military, roads, medicare, social security, science funding, and so forth is why the USA is the greatest country in the world.
In polls, a majority of Americans have said that they would not mind an increase in their taxes if the money was put to good uses. A majority of Americans voted for Democrats this election, and those politicians are doing what they were elected to do; raise taxes on the rich--the rich who destroyed our economy--returning those rates to the (historically) low levels of the Clinton administration.
