Gingrich: Taxes = Victimization

Is paying taxes to fund common resources a form of oppression? Newt Gingrich seems to think so.

In a column about the collapse of Interstate 35W here in Minneapolis, he implies the suffering caused by the bridge collapse is of the same magnitude as paying taxes:
[P]eople should not be re-victimized by using this tragedy as an excuse to raise taxes.
And people say Democrats are "politicizing" this tragedy?

Hmm, suffering by taxes or suffering by collapsing bridges because we didn't pay taxes. Yeah, there's a deep moral quandry for you.

Republicans politicize every tragedy, and always manage to turn my stomach in doing so.
