Taxes: Too much, or not enough?

Eric Kirk and some others over at his blog think we're not paying nearly enough in taxes as we should be.

The Sacramento Bee's, Dan Walters, takes a look at taxation in California.

Meanwhile, in Maryland, it appears a number of the state's millionaires have left to state to avoid taxes. That seems to be happening all over the country, or so I've been hearing.

During all this, our supposed socialist neighbor to the north, Canada, seems to have been weathering the worldwide recession fairly well by most accounts. Why the difference with the United States? The Washington Post seems to think it might have to do with spending less on at least some aspects of government.

If you click on the subject titles on the bar above the graph, you'll get a different corresponding graph.

Canada's economy is doing OK and has free health care? Sign me up.

A great deal of productivity is lost due to our health care system.

Tell anon and Eric and his liberal buddies just to pay more if they want to. And why do canadians come here for "good" health care? We are taxed enough already.
