Income estimation at 88% accuracy rate

No representation without taxation

“German finance minister during my previous tenure had met me. She said [there should be] no representation without taxation, [meaning thereby] if you don’t pay taxes you have no right to representation, to vote. Simple. And, friend, this is very straight. You may say the government doesn’t provide anything, it collects taxes and doesn’t provide any facilities that’s why we don’t pay taxes. Many people say this. You use roads, you use electricity, you use everything, many people don’t even pay electricity bills. The very fact that law and order, the army that defends your borders, police and others, where will this money come from, friend. I mean to say forget that there would be no tax. Yes, but we will simplify it.
