I don't understand why they can't because if they repealed at least one of them then spending would have to be reduced drastically. I particularly hate the payroll tax because it is expensive to keep track of and because it is automatically ~10% of your income taxed away. I do think that with prices going up like crazy the govt will probably have high income tax receipts for the next fiscal year but that's merely an excuse (not a reason) for the govt to think it can balance its budget. Anyone else think repealing at least one of them is a good idea? Anyway, if they don't repeal at least one of them, then the Federal govt may as well start taxing real property for the first time since John Adams was president... I want it to be all or nothing so we can see who was right (Jefferson who would favor no govt) and who was wrong (Hamilton who was a proto-National Socialist).
