Thoughts For Tax Day

By: Chris Mossman

Oklahoma's favorite son, Will Rogers, was a Cherokee cowboy, comedian, humorist, social commentator, vaudeville performer and actor. Here are some of his famous tax and government related quotes.

Will Rogers is well remembered for some of his classic quotes.  In honor of tax day, here are some of my favorites.

  • The income tax has made liars out of more Americans than golf.
     
  • It's a good thing we don't get all the government we pay for.
     
  • Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing, and that was the closest our country has ever been to being even.
  • I am not a member of any organized political party. I am a Democrat.
     
  • Our constitution protects aliens, drunks and U.S. Senators.
     
  • The only difference between death and taxes is that death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets.
