What Are Taxes For?

Why do we pay taxes?. Daniel Henninger asks the next question. Is it to allocate back to the American people as Washington and a bloated bureaucracy sees fit?  As Americans do we continue to worry about high tax rates; the 35% double taxation inheritance tax comes to mind, as does fighting for piecemeal extensions of income taxes every two years. The day to day state and federal taxes  are daunting enough without worrying about keeping our business open with the threat of oppressive Obamacare regulation and taxation.  We have reached a tipping point with an adversarial government and 10 percent unemployment. Henninger’s question is on our lips. – DSMW
