Today is the day most Americans are required to file their personal federal income tax return. Projections indicate the federal government will take in a total of 2.3 trillion dollars this year in tax receipts. They will then turn around and spend 3.6 trillion dollars on Social Services, Defense, Discretionary Spending (ahem, can you say GSA???) and Interest on our National Debt.
Take a minute today to contemplate the enormity of it all and commit to vote in your primaries, local, state and national elections.
