Overseas, taxes are simplified and you can literally see where your money is going: schools, roads, modernizing towns and cities, modern transportation, R&D, etc; actual job-creations that the entire nation gets to use.
THIS! That is the whole point. They don't want you to know where your money is going so they can send kickbacks to the lobbyist and PACs that got them their cushy job in D.C. If you could easily see where the money went, then they couldn't hide the payoffs under pork-barrel spending.--
