Hidden Taxes

Beware of hidden taxes.  An article at Boston.com by Susan Dudley and Jeff Rosen accurately points out that the actions of regulatory agencies often lead to increased costs to all Americans and constitute hidden taxes.  These actions have been occurring faster than ever, as they note:

In its first 100 days, the Obama administration completed 23 economically significant proposed and final regulations, eight more than the Bush administration during the same period (and more than any president before him).

The combination of these actions and the fact that businesses across the board pass on corporate taxes and other fees in the price of their products lead to the insidious hidden taxes that are growing even as politicians "claim" they are not raising taxes.
