Did you know that a loaf of bread that is supposedly tax free, has hidden in it's price every tax paid by the companies involved in it's manufacture, distribution, and sales. Corporate taxes, property taxes, payroll taxes, unemployment taxes, gasoline taxes, and many more are all ultimately passed down and paid by the customer. In addition to the flour and other ingredients, when a poor person buys that loaf of bread, he also pays for part of the CEO's salary, his company car, his bonus, his health insurance, his vacation, and his retirement. The rich man who buys that loaf of bread doesn't pay a penny more in taxes than the poor person does. A rich man pays tax from the excess of his wealth, the poor man pays tax out of the essential part of his. To think the poor don't pay their fair share of taxes based solely on income tax shows a complete lack of understanding. Both economically and on a human level as well.
