I an SO sick of people kicking and screaming "THOSE people DON'T pay TAXES" as if low-wage workers contribute nothing to society, when "those people" are actually decent, hard-working folks who are paying a disproportionate share of their income as payroll, sales, and excise taxes. This rebadte is designed to put money back in the hands of CERTAIN TAXPAYERS, and leave behind plenty of people who sure DID PAY TAXES, just not the "right" kind.

I'm a low-wage worker. I don't think I deserve $300. I didn't pay enough in taxes to deserve $300.
