The Only Dumb Question is the One Not Asked

January 16, 2009

From the “Frequently Asked Questions” section of Indiana’s government website:

Do my taxes pay the salaries of State workers?

Yes. State employees are typically paid from state taxes (e.g., sales, income, corporate, gam[bl]ing, etc.), as well as federal taxes and fees.

I hope that doesn’t come as a surprise to too many people.
