5 Super Happy Fun Facts for Taxpayers

Culled from The Wall Street Journal:


More than 2.5 million of the nearly 9 million Americans on disability are in their 20s, 30s and 40s.


The U.S. tax code is about 4 million words - 7 times the length of "War and Peace".


The tax code is so complex, 60 percent of Americans rely upon tax preparers while 30 percent have to buy software to complete their tax forms.


Even with all of the assistance, Americans spent 6.1 billion hours preparing their taxes last year.


That amount of time is equivalent to the productivity of 3 million full-time workers... wasted on preparing taxes.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

One thing's for certain: we need a flat tax or the Fair Tax if we really want this economy to grow. Which is why the Democrat Party opposes any attempt at reforming the monstrosity.
