I'm not sure that you know what you're talking about... Payroll taxes are for social security and medicare, which the people currently paying the taxes will someday reap (many times what they originally paid). Sales taxes are state and local, so they do not contribute to our defense, our federal infrastructure, and federal assistance programs. Property taxes pay for local schools, so they do not contribute to our defense, our federal infrastructure, and federal assistance programs. Tolls pay for the road the people are using at the time of paying the toll, so they do not contribute to our defense, our federal infrastructure, and federal assistance programs.
