For the year 2014 my tax bill owed to the US Government was $0. A legitimate $0; nothing I did was illegal or immoral.
What this really means is that in 2014 I didn’t finance any wars, buy any drones, body scanners, or bombs for the US government. Instead, I decided to purchase a brand-new leg for someone who needs it.
The U.S. government sent “Joe” to Afghanistan where he lost his leg. They then told Joe that they wouldn’t pay for his new leg because, and I quote, “The procedure is too risky.”
It wasn’t too risky to send Joe to the front lines of Afghanistan, but it’s too risky to give him a new leg. Joe wasn’t content with that answer and neither was I, so I financed Joe’s treatment and a new leg so he can walk again.
