Look at these missed opportunities

Almost all income taxes are paid by legitimate businesses and their workers through payroll deductions. Why should more of our country's debt be paid by them? Our politicians never discuss ways to tax those who earn money via "cash only" enterprises (this subterranean income is estimated to be in the trillions). They never discuss ways to prevent wasteful government spending. They never discuss ways to tax income created by corruption and criminal activities. They never discuss ways to eliminate write-offs for lavish "business" expenses. Why? Why must this always be the burden of the working middle class and legitimate businesses?
