Thank Taxes? No Thank You!


While Delegate David Englin’s wife is trashing the internet with her middle school level “Thank Taxes” campaign, the majority of Americans are currently filing taxes and hating them.

April is usually not a month to be grateful for taxes, it is a month to realize that your hard earned income is being sliced and diced. Luckily for Virginians, the Republican led House of Delegates were able to craft a budget without creating any new taxes. Although taxes are the lifeline of government, we should not resort to thanking them. Thanking taxes will not stimulate the economy or create jobs.

With our current economic situation thanking taxes is simply not an option. With a massive budget shortfall the House of Delegates had to implement innovative solutions to ensure that the tax payers’ wallets were not emptied. It is a bit odd that Delegate Englin’s wife is a tad too chipper about tax increases and disregards the struggling tax payer completely.

Another note, Tax Freedom Day will arrive on April 9 this year. According to taxfoundation.org “Americans will work well over three months of the year—from January 1 to April 9—before they have earned enough money to pay this year's tax obligations at the federal, state and local levels.”

So thank you taxes.

Also Not Larry Sabato picked up on this story as well.
