In 1912 a dollar was worth.....a DOLLAR!
Today a dollar is worth...3 cents.
The other 97 cents was swept under the oval rug.
You know, the one with jizz, blood, and chicken grease stains all over it. All bought with the sweat off'n your backs.
Land of the free, eh?
Yeah right....all 3 cents worth.
Just think how much freer you'd be with all 100 cents.
Sit back, take a sip, and ponder......

Total tax revenue for 2017 can not be that number.

That equals $22,636.95 per 1040 filed.

That equals $22,636.95 per 1040 filed. Those IRS morons probably recognize EITC as revenue.
