It's Tax Freedom Day

I've been waiting all year for this (*rimshot*). Dan Mitchell writes at Cato-at-Liberty:

Taxpayers can breathe a sign of relief. According to the Tax Foundation, April 23 is Tax Freedom Day. That means that the average American has finally earned enough to pay estimated federal, state, and local taxes for 2008. One of the most depressing finding in the Tax Foundation’s report is that Americans pay more in tax than they do for food, clothing, and shelter combined. To compensate for being the bearer of bad fiscal news, the Tax Foundation released an amusing video. It doesn’t quite equal this classic tax video, but it’s worth watching.

Here are the video clips he mentions. This is the Tax Foundation's amusing video, Tax Freedom Day: The Song

And this is the "classic tax video": What Will They Tax Next? I believe this one's appeared here before but it's worth a second showing.
