    Here's a good example of the entitlement mindset...
    Standing in line at H&R Block, my brother overheard one of their employees informing a woman that she was going to receive over $1,000 from the IRS due to the Earned Income Credit. "What? Please don't play me like that!" She was floored. For all of 30 seconds. After 60 seconds had passed, she had stopped asking for her money and was now demanding, almost screaming "Where's my money?! Give me my money!"

    Probably walked in there scared she might owe $50 and left pissed off because she was going to have to wait a few weeks for a 4-figure handout.
    Tax returns are a handout now?

    Taxing isn't necessary to fund programs like universal healthcare.
    How does the government pay for anything, like universal healthcare, if it doesn't tax for it?

    No, tax returns are accounting reports that people who work are required to submit to the IRS every year. About half of those people pay what's called an "income tax." A smaller number are subject to what's called a "negative income tax." The former helps support the government, while the latter receives support from the government. The former puts money into the government coffers, the latter takes money out. The government takes money away from the former, and "hands it out" it to the latter.

    Taxes, or borrowing, which just has to be paid off eventually with taxes.

    Tax returns? No. Tax rebates, because of the earned income credit? yes.

    It's absolutely amazing how little Libbos know about the tax code. They mistake "rebates" for "returns". "deductions" for "loopholes" etc.

    Incredible!

    The government does not tax us?


    Oh man, those IRS guys sure had me fooled. Well next time they come knocking I'll just tell them that I'm on to their scam and the jig is up.

    It's fascinating that you say so, given that that is precisely the opposite of the experience of every single nation to ever adopt a single-payer model. Is it paid for by.... magic?
