A few weeks ago, I put a poll up on this site (you can still see it to the right) asking the question How do you feel about how much tax you pay?
While it’s admittedly a non-scientific poll, the same could be said about the voting for the final roster spot on Major League Baseball’s all-star team.
You: But at least there were millions of votes.
True, but not necessarily millions of voters.
You: Point taken.
Remember, no one knows you’re a dog on the Internet. Anyway, the results were a bit surprising, as more than three-quarters fell voted “My tax burden is too high.”
You: Why did that surprise you?
With half of all Americans paying no income taxes, I thought I’d see more people happy with their tax burden. True, it’s a small non-scientific sample. Aside from the aforementioned caveats, why do you think the results are as they are? Have you voted yet?
