i think what taxpayers should do is just postpone sending their tax money by one month. if enough people do that , i know it will cost them interest and penalty, but we can show that "we the people" have a say in this country. if it does not work postpone it by 45 days, gov. will have no money coming in and this will register with them.

Most people who pay income taxes have it collected by their employer through payroll taxes. Eliminate this process and force people to send a check. You would have an instant revolt.

Great idea, but don't hold your breath....
Congress returned to "work" this week (now there's a laugh) to complete its lame-duck session before taking another holiday. Spending other people's money is a taxing experience.

Their task is to avoid the "fiscal cliff," a geological construct of their own making. It doesn't take a genius to predict both parties will try to do two things: (1) reach an agreement that will allow each side to take some credit and (2) require those who work for a living to pay government more while they come up with phony, or inconsequential spending "cuts."

Whatever they do, payroll taxes...
