You do have to laugh, well, I do anyway. Read these tweets picked up at Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy via Instapundit about the effect of the tax changes that have just been implemented in the US. There are a lot of people paying more tax since Obama got his way on the fiscal cliff etc. It seems there are more rich people in the US who had no idea they were rich and who are therefore eligible for this increase in tax. My favourite:
Did new taxes go info [sic] effect today? Something I don’t understand about the fiscal cliff? I got a raise, and yet my paycheck got smaller …
You really do have to laugh at such clueless dolts.
The only tax reform I really want is to remove automatic payroll deduction so that everyone who earns an income sends a cheque to the ATO at the end of the year for the total amount of what they owe. Then we’d start seeing some fiscal discipline.
