can you believe it?

today I was listening to the Michael Medved show while I worked.  Mr. Medved said that one of President Obama’s ideas for fixing taxes is to have the governmetn do your taxes for you.  If you made income from a single job, had a single bank account and soemthing else, the government would fill out your tax forms for you.  

While I see that this probably won’t help that many people (seriously, who makes income from one job only and doesn’t have any extra stuff?  Medved said it was aobut 40% of Americans), the idea of it scares me.  The more I think about it, the more I really do wish that we paid all our own taxes.  I lean toward the thinking that a person should know where their money is going.  And, if they see where it is going and how much of it is going, they would be more vested in making sure it is spent wisely.  
This way of thinking came about as I saw how much the government takes from people with the payroll tax.
