So Senate Majority Leader REID believes our tax system is VOLUNTARY?
Just trying to catch up on some things that I didn't have to put up when I ran across them. This from Betsy's Page is one of them:
Incredibly this man is one of the leaders of our nation. Watch this video of Harry Reid explaining over and over and over again that the United States has a voluntary tax system. Libertarian interview, Jan Helfeld tried to ask Reid about how people feel when their money is forcibly taken away from them to pay for welfare for others, but Reid refuses to accept the premise of the question because, as he repeats several times, the government doesn't force people to pay taxes and that we have a voluntary system. He can't claim that he misspoke since he is quite forceful in his repetition that our system is voluntary. His explanation is that we have deductions for mortgages and medical costs and so the entire system is voluntary. Imagine that.
Remember this as you are filling out your tax forms. The Senate Majority Leader insists that the system is voluntary.
When the Democrats try to demonize John McCain for his ignorance on economics, I hope that the Republicans will blanket the media with this video.Well, we're trying!
