At least that’s according to a new Rasmussen poll.

Most voters still say this country is overtaxed, and half think any federal tax increase should be submitted to the public for a vote.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% of Likely U.S. Voters believe America is overtaxed. But that’s down from 66% two years ago and 64% last year. One-out-of-three (33%) now believe the country is not overtaxed, while another 12% are not sure.

I was going to say I thought that was a low percentage, but then I remembered that only 50% of Americans pay any income tax at all. It’s not a perfect conclusion, but pretty much everybody who pays income tax thinks they are overtaxed. (Except Warren Buffet – bu wait, even one of Warren Buffet’s companies is being sued for $366 million of unpaid taxes.)
