Tax Preparer: Republican or Democrat Job?

This evening a friend referred to what I do at H&R Block as a "Republican" job, because I help people to keep more of their money and pay less in taxes.

In one sense, he is absolutely right.

But I had to remind him that at times, it is a very "Democratic" job, because I help 22-year-old single mothers receive welfare in the form of "tax refunds" they did little or nothing to earn. See the preceding post.

I find the "Republican" elements of my job more enjoyable than the "Democratic" ones. It's still a great job, though, and I enjoy it...most of the time.
