But you could be paying for things you are not responsible for. That's why I say a tax should be based on the solution it is trying to solve. If you are in need of that solution, then yes you should pay. I think your actions should determine your tax. For example, if you don't drive you pay a lower road tax. You still pay some because you eat the food the truck brings it on. People should pay their fair share, no less, no more.
