Economic Emancipation Arrives in the Buckeye State
Ohio Bureau Chief Gerry Manders says today may be Tax Freedom Day in Ohio, but it won’t arrive for the country as a whole until April 24. According to our friends at The Tax Foundation, today’s the day in Ohio each year you stop working exclusively for the government, because every dollar you’ve earned so far this year will have theoretically gone to pay all of your federal, state, and local taxes for 2016.
Maybe that’s why our Quote for Today Committee chose Ronald Reagan’s “Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.”
Gerry Manders says Tax Freedom Day comes to Ohio nearly one week before “Tax Freedom Day” in America on April 24 (only the 114th day of the year), a day after Hoosier Daddy says Tax Freedom Day arrived in Indiana on April 18, and more than a full week after April 11, when Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo says over-taxed payers on the South began working for themselves, since everybody knows state and local taxes are lower in Kentucky.
YESTERDAY AT THE CONSERVATIVE AGENDA, Political Insiders were asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane which was his “Favorite Day” in April. “There are so many to choose from,” Kane explained. “So it would be hard to pick a favorite.” But The Blower says “Tax Freedom Day” is the day we really plan to celebrate this year, and so should even all of those Dumbed-Down, Self-Absorbed, Media-Influenced, Celebrity-Obsessed, Politically-Correct, Uninformed, Short-Attention-Span, Free-Stuff Grabbing, Low-Information Obama Supporters Who Put The Positively Worst President in History In The White House—Twice, and get all of their information from our Obama Supporters in the Press, like the ones on Channel 5.
