The burden of taxation has been systematically and heavily shifted onto the individual and away from Corporate America over the last 35 years. This should be of grave concern to the American people. The tea party rose up in 2008 chanting Taxed Enough Already, I stand with them on that statement. The American individual has been shouldering more and more of the cost of Government since the conservative Reagan revolution.

Where I differ with the tea party is lowering corporate taxes. According to the Urban and Brookings Institutes, the percentage of federal revenue coming from individuals, including sole proprietors was 41.5%, the percentage paid by corporate America was 8.9% in 2010.
