Every now and then a blog post comes along that makes my day. But Russ Fox of Taxable Talk has written Taxes are for the Other Party that has made my month:
The Democratic National Committee has a private club (the National Democratic Club) in Washington, DC. I guess that’s not surprising–with so many politicians in Washington, a club makes sense. But even political parties (and their clubs) must pay their taxes.
