I like this part:
"The Treasury Department will likely collect around $4.9 trillion from income and payroll taxes in 2014. That's a huge jump from the $5.4 billion collected in 1920 and the $43 billion in 1945."
So, I looked it up and the population has tripled while the collected taxes have grown nearly a thousandfold? Wow.
