Final U

In the Star-Telegram editorial entitled "Promoting The General Welfare" (June 15, 2003) by Molly Ivins, how does the author use the quote by B. Rapoport to illustrate her point about tax fairness? Do you think most informed Americans would agree with Ivins's notion that the reason people don't like to pay taxes is that they know the system is unfair? Provide examples from any of your reading, your conversations with other Americans or your experience to support your evaluation of the author's assertion.
