anyone who makes 75K a year and saves is gonna have a million dollar estate if they live to 75 and don't have bad investments or some really bad luck. the average GS 12 or 13 will die with a million dollar estate. many people who bought 150K homes in the 80s may well be millionaires now if they bought in the right places.
a tax cut is not the same as a handout. For more than half of our country's history no one paid income taxes and until the FDR administration, no one paid much of their income in taxes. ONly a person who believes all wealth belongs to the government can confuse a handout with a tax cut.
your logic is the same as saying that a robber who leaves half of your wallet's contents has given you that money.
do you believe that all wealth belongs to the government?
Here, let me simplify it. Say that they want to give Joe Smith $10 million. They cut a check to his name. That's a handout in your book, right? Now say they write "tax refund" in the memo field. Then that's no longer a handout in your book, right? How does that make sense?
As for you question about does the money belong to the government... That's just empty rhetoric with no substance behind it... Does the money you spend on groceries "belong" to the grocer? What is the sound of one hand clapping? Does the water in the river belong in the ocean or in the cloud?
