Let me be clear: The U.S. government has a spending problem, not a revenue problem. On April 15, Uncle Sam will collect. The average American has worked since Jan. 1 to meet his or her tax burden. Graciously, we the taxpayers are granted a temporary reprieve each year, otherwise known as National Tax Freedom Day.
