No, I’ve never seen how that makes any sense at all. It is like punishing someone for working and doing good at it. Even if someone inherits their money, I don’t see how it is their responsibility to support someone else. We’re not talking a feudal system where people are creating the wealth for their landowner or something.
There was a time in my life when I paid no taxes because I got it all back when I filed my taxes. Obama’s peoples sent me a website to match what my taxes would be under the guise of him becoming president versus what McCain’s plan was. I paid more taxes under Obama… my family income at that time was under $60,000 with 2 adults and 3 dependent children. I don’t know how in the hell I was “rich” in Obama’s people’s minds. (I also live in California where cost of living is higher. I realize the income would be comfy in different areas of the country.)
I am okay with welfare on a temporary basis, longer if needed during times of economic crisis. But I would be more okay with a flat rate where you get no money back.
