Quite honestly, the folks in the lower income bracket protest less about paying tax than those with higher incomes. It almost seems that the level of protest is proportional to the level of wealth. Among those who protest so much, I find that they actually enjoy bashing the government on the issue of taxes, myself included at times. But for me, I see the impact that taxes have made on the lower income portion of our community. So I can understand the bitter attitude towards those who are in leadership. Mistrust has found a permanent seat.
