Every year an independent tax watchdog group analyzes the average tax
burden on Americans, and then calculates the "Tax Freedom Day". This is
the day after which the money you earn goes to you, not the government.

This year, tax freedom day was April 11th. That's the earliest it has
been since 1991. It's latest day ever was May 2nd, which occurred in
2000. Notice anything special about those dates?

Today John Kerry gave a speech in which he claimed Americans are
actually paying more taxes under Bush, despite the tax cuts. He gave no
explanation and provided no data for this claim.

Another interesting fact: Both George Bush and John Kerry are wealthy
men. Bush owns only one home, his ranch in Texas. Kerry owns 4
mansions, all worth several million dollars. His ski resort home
in Idaho is an old barn brought over from Europe in pieces. Not your average A-frame.

Bush paid $250,000 in taxes this year; Kerry paid $90,000. Does that
sound right? The man who wants to raise your taxes obviously has
figured out a way to avoid paying his own.

from what i have heard, an explanation for this is that kerry doesn't personally own much. almost everything is in his wife's name. supposedly, he signed a pre-nup & owns half of one of their mansions.
