Taxpayers are the lifeblood of any country. They say the only sure things in life are death and taxes. Without taxes, the country will not be able to provide the services their citizens need. It really is frustrating to hear all these scandals about our politicians spending our tax money instead of using it to alleviate poverty. I am grateful that there are still people who pay taxes. I am also grateful that we have means to earn a living, which allow us to pay our taxes.
