A bureaucrat differs from a nonbureaucrat precisely because he is working in a field in which it is impossible to appraise the result of a mans effort in terms of money. -- Ludwig von Mises

Federal Tax Me More Fund

Posted by Demian Brady - August 09, 2007

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has introduced a bill to allow supporters of big government to pay more taxes voluntarily. HR 3129 would permit taxpayers to designate income tax over-payments as contributions to the federal government.

This is similar to the Tax Me More Funds established in Arkansas and Virginia. And like those, probably won't attract many participants. Arkansas' Fund only garnered around $1,900 over its first year, and Virginia's Fund collected $6,602 from 5 individuals.

Maybe Gohmert's plan would receive more money if it were named the "Think of the Children! Won't Somebody Please Think of the Children?!" Fund.
