I do think the basic problem is the withholding tax system. The biggest single group of voters is wage earners (certainly not including the self-enployed) and most of them have never written a check for income taxes in their life. In fact, they are encouraged to make the employer pay more than necessary, and surprise! The wage earner gets the difference, in a nice little 'refund' check! As a result, most voters could care less about what our legslators do, especially if it looks like they're trying to throw a freebie to the public. If every taxpayer was forced to write a check directly to the federal government weekly, monthly, yearly, whatever, we'd see government shrink like a snowdrift in July. It couldn't be done overnite, but phased in (or out, as is this case) over 5-10 years it would change the country as much as this immigration baloney, but in the opposite direction! Who knows we might even see a strong movement for the repeal of the 16th amendment.
