Quote for the Day

The Franklin D. Roosevelt tax quote cited below was used earlier this year in April. Unless Congress extends the so-called Bush tax cuts, on January 1, 2011, American taxpayers will be burdened with what is likely the largest tax increase in American history. Consequently, it seems appropriate to repeat it here.

"Taxes are paid in the sweat of every man who labors. If those taxes are excessive, they are reflected in idle factories, tax-sold farms and in hordes of hungry people, tramping the streets and seeking jobs in vain."

    ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
