Out of Sight, Out of Mind
I couldn't agree more with this article on how the withholding tax has allowed the government to get away with its massive growth. It's why most people don't understand how much they are really paying in income taxes.
If everyone had to write actual checks for their taxes, rather than have it held back from their paychecks, they would become much more interested in seeing taxes reduced. I also like the idea to make tax payment day the same as election day so that people can better make the connection between the two events.
