The way the tax struxture is setup in this country encourges people not to be productive. i.e. To get more services, work less.
This makes no sense.

If I work 20 hours instead of 80, I don't get any more "services." And yes, I pay less in taxes if I work less, but I also earn a lot less and have less income to save, invest and do things with. On balance I choose to work more to have more options in my life.

Maybe you get these mysterious "services" by working less, but most of us in fact do not.
