Truth be told, America's alot closer to providing socialize health care than alot of people think and that was before ObamaCare. But as I've said, the only way to get there is if the citizenry agree to pay a health care tax akin to Social Security. Until then, socialized health care won't happen for a long time. And before you say it, despite the mandate in ObamaCare the health care system, even when made part of state-sponsored health insurance exchanges, will still be managed by state health care commissions. Private insurance will remain the primary source both employers and some within the working class obtain their insurace, i.e., HSAs. The health insurance industry as a whole may take recommendations from the Dept. of HHS occasionally, such as this issue with free birth control to women (which again was a recommendation initiated by the Institute of Medicine, not the fed itself), but health insurance will remain largely in the control of the private sector.
(Personal Note: Sorry for hijacking the thread; just had to set the record straight and reply to the above. Carry on...)

Does this include ALL taxes? Not just federal income taxes, but also state income, sales taxes, payroll taxes, property taxes, gas taxes, local fees and taxes?

If we didn't have a government that was hell bent on wealth redistribution, they wouldn't move that money out of the country.You falsely assume that every rich person that gets more of a tax break greater than the median income of 90% of the country, is not going to do what they have been doing for the last decade, investing that money in other countries rather than the country that gave them the tax break to begin with.
Government wastes money, period. When I worked for the Government, I once had a boss who spent official funds lavishly, and when asked about it, would say, "It's on the Government's dime. Who cares?"
