You did and do, own it. State, local, or federal.
If I lose (not loose, oh student of public school) I will pay for it-I dont need govt to do that. Crazy, I know.
Basic? Yes thats a problem because I am better than basic.
Unemployment is at an expense to my employer and customers. Even you know this. That means its not free-there is no free lunch, lefty.
I noticed you haven't given examples of how I benefit from taxes. I wonder why that is? All Ive asked for is an example-surely thats easy, eh?
