said by pnh102:Amazing how government mandates abroad required that every fee and tax be included in the price of the service - in those Big Gov Federalist nations. Therefore, when something stated $69.95 for example, that is all I paid. Not to mention, not only were the services cheaper, but faster and of better value too.
As always, it is another tax. Federal, state, local income taxes, social security and medicare taxes, state and local sales taxes, state and local property taxes, gas tax, water tax, utility tax, cell phone tax, cable TV tax, car tax, excise tax... tax after tax after tax after tax. The average taxpayer probably sees half his income go out the door in all these damn taxes.
