some rich person pays 25% ($75000) federal income tax and earns $300,000. living expenses $225.000 and qualifies for no assistance program.
In this fake example one person pays no federal income tax, another payed 25% of what they earn. Both spent all they make. Different lifestyles for sure.
Here is a clue. Life is not fair. Some people will have more than others, some will have the same and some less.
