Tax Day Brawl: New Payroll Tax In Kentucky City Brings Fury (VIDEO)

Some may scoff that the anti-tax tea party movement is a put-on by establishment conservatives. But one thing's for sure: people really do hate taxes, and mid-April is prime tax hatin' season.

Workers in Raceland, Kentucky are so mad over a proposed one-percent payroll tax that a railroad union official almost threw down with council member Tuesday night, according to the local TV station. Workers packed a council meeting and afterward WSAZ caught part of a near-brawl on tape.

WSAZ reports that the council actually halved the proposed tax. The brawl portion of the video may be brief, but it shows that half a tax is still worse than none at all for some folks. A lot worse.


Hat tip: WSAZ
