Hey No. Give the hard earned tax dollars to Wall Street. Boost the billion dollar earnings of the CEO's. Pump billions into a War that will haunt America for generations to come. Don't ever think of the health of the Nation, That would be a crime and it would take some of the HUGE profits away from the CEO's who run the Private Health Scams. Maybe this kind of growing attitude in America is one of the reasons it is now going to pay nearly a Trillion Dollars to save greedy Ceo's and Directors. So NO don't pay for Healthcare, Pay for incompetent Corporations.

roads and police and the judicial is not because of the INCOME TAX... that is your local state and twp states and even they could be reduced.

40% of the income tax pays for the national debt interest to private banks.

I didn't say otherwise. I don't know how my comment could be misconstrued in support of the current income tax system. I didn't make any mention of income tax. Of course the government can generate revenue from other sources than the income tax.

I'm on your side, by the way. The government needs to be as small as possible.

However, if you want zero taxes, zero public services, and anarcho-capitalism move to Somalia. Sure has worked out well over there.
