Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago...
And our nation was the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt...
We had the largest middle class in the world...
And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened?
Can you spell 'politicians!'

Most states also have a hotel tax.

Don't forget the driver's registration fee charged by most states (including our home state of Michigan).

No, but I can spell pragmatism.
Seriously we can't blame it all on the politicians. Its not like they elected themselves!
