Taxes, Tax man, Taxi Driver

Brilliant. In a story on the Greek financial situation, the NY Times sourced and quoted Mr. Robbie Cullen a tax collector who, after increased income taxes and wage freezes, had to pick up a second job to make end meet., as a taxi driver.

”I can’t even keep up with my own debts, never mind the nation’s,” Cullen said, shopping for cut-rate sausage at a discount supermarket he disdained to visit in better times. ”I’ve got to spend 30 hours a week taxiing just to break even. Something else has got to give. I can’t give any more.” –Robbie Cullen, Tax Collector, and Taxi Driver on Ireland’s recent increased income Tax
