The time of year that we approach with equal parts dread and animus is once again upon us -- Tax Day, the time to give your hard-earned money to a government that can never seem to get enough of it. The deadline is April 17 this year, so you still have time to file your return. Today, though, let's turn our focus to working together to end Tax Day and our broken tax system entirely. Let's work together to pass the FairTax and ensure that no American ever has to face April 15 (or April 17) ever again.
