We need to move away from a system where we are taxed first then the government decides what to do with it afterwards. Where in the fuck else would you accept this as a form of paying for services? The government should first determine what they need to spend, spend it, then at the end of the year, however they want to distribute the taxes, send people the tax bill for the previous year. They SHOULD NOT tax ANYTHING as it goes. What they are owed is not a product of our economy, it is the amount needed for the services we elected them to setup.
This would allow the economy to completely go short circuit and ensure we are not overpaying for anything.
