    Q: exactly what is wrong with wanting to keep more of what you earn?

    I understand the politicians want to take it to buy votes, but I don't see that as a real reason.

    Anyone have a REAL reason why someone would NOT want to keep more of what they earn?

    • Just think if government was cut by about 2/3, they wouldn't need and waste more of what we earn. Like I posed before, what are the necessary expenses the Fed Gov has, the military, salaries and travel, foreign aid, what else? The rest could very well be handed over to individual states to use for specific needs, healthcare, education, jobs, disaster funds, too many to list. What is earned in a state should stay in the state to benefit those who pay for it. It would never happen, the Dems would kill anything that would take away their power.

      I guess they wouldn't if they wanted to give up the everyday services provided by the government?
