The Nanny Tax Rap

This blog is dedicated to the proposition that all taxes are equally annoying and that politicians will tax anything and everything. The Tax Foundation captured that premise perfectly in a clever video featuring Uncle Sam. It’s called the “Nanny Tax Rap.”

The punchline at the end is the best. Uncle Sam sings, “Well, I save you from yourself, better keep those payments current. Raising taxes on this stuff — well, it works as a deterrent.” And the taxpayer answers: “So if paying taxes on something creates a deterrent, wouldn’t the same principle apply to taxing income?” Uncle Sam then stammers and bolts from the room.

The only thing missing in the video is a cameo by Aunt Virginia.
