You just think you have reduced your taxes. The deficits are upon us. The liberal/progressive/socialist democrats across the country in the city, county and state gov't are raising and putting taxes on any thing they can to raise money. This what is sad, there are many,many people living on fixed incomes or are working for low wages, they have little and the gov't takes from them to give to people that have more. Shame, shame, shame.
