Oh dear I wish we didn't pay tax on anything we bought, life would be better. We are taxed over our eyeballs, it is astounding what they find to tax.
I am taxed yearly on my car. So not only did I pay sales tax, a transportation tax, some other tax to do with emissions or something, I also pay tax yearly to license my car. But add in the gas tax I pay every time I fill up and the road tax. I get taxed on my electricity bill to pay for those that don't pay. Pay tax on non essential food items, tax on clothes, electronics, phone bills. Once again my phone bill has 5 separate tax items on it.
