Jim Boerner, a veteran disabled in an Air Force training exercise in 1991, learned of the sale of his home when a Deputy knocked on his door. He was informed that he owed $236 in taxes but was confused as he thought he had paid them off.

Robbery Report 2018: Harmful and Wasteful Tax Spending

tax robbery
Conner Drigotas | @cdrigs44

In 2018 I worked for 2,230.05 hours. An average of 46.46 hours per week for the 48 weeks I worked this year between February 1 and December 31. In the month of January, I was interviewing for the job I started in February.

I track my work hours meticulously. I am required to as part of my job at a law firm, even though I am not a lawyer.

In every hour that I worked this year, the government stole $12.48 from my paycheck. They then used that money to invade foreign countries, build bombs, and pay the salaries of people I do not trust.
