This is such a great idea. We currently arent taxed enough and need to pay more. I suggest we give all our money to the state and feds and allow them to take care of us and give us an allowance. It appears we are only half way there so its not much more work to be done. Hop to it guys. God forbid they raise the gas tax a nickle.
