Taxman - Beatles

by Brian ORoark

No one likes paying taxes, not even the Fab Four.  In this song by the Beatles they decry the excessive taxing prowess of the British government.  At the time the highest tax rate was 95%.  Would you work if your take home pay was 5 cents on the dollar?

I don't think I would work for 5 cent on the dollar. That would be totally crazy. How could I live on that amount of money. Heck, can barely live on what we make now. Well, can't say that since my Mom was a Taxman (Taxwoman).
