I could not pass up the opportunity to comment on this story, which comes from the Reuters news service. A group of 250 Finns have joined the Happy Taxpayers Association. Their goal: to focus on all the services that Finlanders get from paying the highest taxes in the E.U.
I know some of my friends are in the Optimist club, but these folks seem more positive than normal. Lest you worry that something has been put into the drinking water by government officials, I'm happy to report that the Taxpayer's Association of Finland, which focuses on lobbying for tax cuts, has 190,000 members.
