They think you're a rube who won't notice how much money they're taking if they're slick about it, and so far you're proving them right. Don't feel bad; most people fall for it.
how do you know what i have saved?
you can beg to differ all you want. i know my scrilla, my chedda, my paper scratch (ie money) better than you do.
and again, i suggest you look up the difference between a tax an a bill.
And as for "taxes not being the same as a bill", try not paying it some time.
i guess anyone can say that food is the same as water because both can fill your stomach. only an idiot would beleive they are the same, though.
