If the government doesn't take steps to help people in need then what's the point of having a government or law? Let's just have anarchy where only the strong survive.|
> So in your view, people who are successful should be punished for being more successful than someone who can't keep a steady job or take low-paying jobs because they don't want to work hard?
I don't see it as being punished and I don't think it's as simple as "working hard". Are you telling me baseball players work as hard as cops or firemen? Especially in this economy.
Does it really make a difference if rich people pay more taxes? OMG, they'll have to go without a few extra cars and houses. The horror.
