Charity work. I beleive our taxes are not well spent.
Either that statement is fuzzy or I need to stop drinking my Jack and Coke and go to bed. Maybe its the question marks. I think your answering your question and asking another. While I do agree that there are more wealthy I do not agree that the middle class is stronger under a trickle down economic model. In fact it widens the gap between wealthy and poor. As seen by receint data.[/QUOTE]
Let me get this straight. You don't agree with our current welfare system, but you do think we need to forcibly take money from the rich and give it to the poor in order to increase the size of the middle class. You believe that our taxes are not well spent, yet you don't understand why someone would be bitter about being asked to have more of their money wasted. You don't agree that the trickle down economic model works for the middle class, so I have to assume that you are perfectly ok with having the government decide who the winners and losers will be by how they spend the additional tax dollars that your are ok with them taking.
I'm thoroughly confused.
