ARE YOU FEELING OVERTAXED

Are you one of many Americans who feel overtaxed?  As you well know, there is more than one way to be taxed.  For instance, if you have ever received a traffic ticket in any of our towns- from Suffern to Nyack, or Stony Point to Pearl River- you will notice the strong surcharges which have been inching their way upward. Have you looked at your phone bill lately? You will also notice a lot of tiny taxes that add to the increases in your bill.  As with our electric bills, it seems as though the taxes and surcharges almost triple the bill.  To some consumers, the increased taxes and fees "on these necessities" are most insulting.
All told, we are stuck with all these taxes and fees, and I have not included many more, such as payroll taxes, gasoline, sales, property, licensing, etc.  
It is really simple, our governments like to spend. We are all in this together, do you think they MUST spend to get it right?
