On the eve of the April 15 tax filing deadline, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich pitches a podcast which outlines "hidden taxes in everyday things," writing Sunday for Fox News.

"Virtually every action we take is taxed – from using our cell phones and driving our cars, to drinking a beer and buying a plane ticket," Gingrich wrote. "You will be amazed at how many taxes are collected on a single hamburger.

"We also discuss a few outrageous taxes and why they were created. For example, we explain how and why sliced bagels typically cost at least 8 cents more than uncut bagels in New York City."

Americans for Tax Reform President Grover Norquist and Job Creators Network Foundation President Elaine Parker joins Gingrich "to unveil some of the most obscure taxes that we pay without even realizing it."

Gingrich outlines the "sin taxes" on alcohol and tobacco, how they were written into law, and whether they are anything more than a revenue stream for the U.S. government.
