When was the last time you sat back and actually thought about all of the things you’ve paid taxes on — or will have to pay taxes on in the future?

That would be ridiculous…
Even after all of this, Democrats want to raise taxes even higher. Senator Bernie Sanders is honest enough to admit that even the middle class should pay more taxes. Who needs to keep their own money when they’re funding healthcare for illegal immigrants, right?
