This is crap. If the city wants to light up their parks at night they need to pay for it, not me. Most cities have a deal with their local power delivery company for street lights anyways, extend that deal to cover the parks. Congress has no business spending my money to pay for something that should be handled at the city level.
Toll roads, taxes on gas, taxes on vehicle registration, taxes on vehicle inspection, taxes when you buy groceries, taxes when you pay the satellite bill, taxes on your water bill, taxes on the gas bill, taxes on the electric bill, property taxes, personal property taxes, taxes on Rangers tickets, taxes on the phone bill, taxes on the cell phone bill. Then you throw on income tax, social securty and medicare taxes. How can Americans afford to even buy a loaf of bread anymore? Somehow that's not taxed at least!
I bet if the average American added up all the taxes they pay it'd be over 50% of their discretionary income (assuming they have any).
No fast cars though
