State tax burdens increase

Good news for our tax-loving friends on the left: I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching...oops. I mean, this:
If it seems like your taxes have been going up, they probably have — at least at the state level.

State taxpayer burdens increased by an average of 41 percent from 1994 to 2004, according to newly released data from the Census Bureau. Only one state, Alaska, saw the amount it collects per person decline.

Even when the numbers are adjusted for inflation, the individual tax burdens increase in 43 states.
This is good news for the left, correct? They think Americans are undertaxed, so this should help brighten their day...provided they can get Bushrove McHitlerburton off of their mind long enough!
