    Well, that's good for you, but for me, I never agreed to pay taxes.
    Do you pay you taxes?

    mot of the difference is in one case the concern is feigned.

    On the note of equal taxation though, if your prior claim about taxes is correct and taxes are indeed to pay for those services provided to us, then it is only reasonable that people are charged equally for those services.
    That's on the presumption that people are using them equally. Tom Brady needs more services than other citizens, he pays more as a result.

    Ok, so why do you think Tom Brady needs more services? Where does most crime take place again?

    Tom Brady has more wealth than most citizens. Law enforcement prevents the natural diffusion of wealth in a society. Tom Brady uses more resources to protect his massive wealth than I do, considering I have much less wealth to steal, relative.

    Where do you think police spend more time? Up protecting the wealthy communities or down in the poor communities?

    Re: Tom Brady owes the IRS over 60 grand for winning Super Bowl.

    In 2013, Brady signed a five-year $57 million contract. $30 million was a signing bonus. If we average that out, it's $11.4 million a year. Not including endorsements.

    His bonus on the game per the article was $115,000. That's 0.2% of his 5-year compensation.

    Not to mention he probably has everything set up already to dramatically reduce his tax liabilities.

    I think he'll be OK. No one should really be outraged about this.
