Some of us remember having to pay taxes when we were on a near bread and water budget!

The real issue of the current times is the amount of free loading thta is being funded by the few tax payers in the USA.

There are far too many people collecting from the current welfare programs who should not be.

The classics? Food stamps and unemployment compensation.
I personally know of too many unemployed who are perfectly content to stay home and collect unemployment. They are the first to protest if their "benefits" () are about to expire and demand an extension (again).

Food stamp abuse is a well know problem for years and all that has happened over the years is to multiply the problem.

Two excellent examples of those working having to pay for those who ELECT not to work.
Really? So everybody should pay 15% of their income (that's the most commonly stated flat tax amount) whether they can afford it, or not. If the choice is between them living in their car with their kids or paying 15% of their income to the government, you'd choose confiscating their income.

There is no doubt that there is abuse. There is abuse in any program, of any type, public or private. Can't be stopped because there are unscrupulous people out there. It would be great if it could be reduced. But does that mean that we condemn everybody that participates in those programs?
