    “Voluntary taxation” is a technical term peculiar to tax law. It means the citizen is responsible for accounting, reporting, and paying his own taxes. I don’t like the term, either, because it’s confusing, but Reid used it correctly.

    But harry reid said tax compliance was voluntary…screw obama and the government. It’ll cost a hell of a lot more to incararate Fox.
