An acquaintance, a 30-something single mother of two who works as a receptionist in a doctor's office, told me last week that she is hanging on till tax time.

I think a bigger problem than the taxes is why a receptionist in a doctor's office can't easily support herself and two kids. Worker wages have declined over the last 40 years...around the time we started offering major tax breaks to the economically mighty few. Coincidence? I think not.
