And yet the Left makes exactly the reverse argument. That redistribution benefits society more than it hurts the "rich b*&#@$^s" who get shaken down. I lean toward the Right on this and most (but not all) issues. But it is scary that only about half of the population pays Federal income tax (I get it that they pay other taxes, but not FIT). They have no skin in the tax law game. The latest tax proposals that were floated to pay for Blow Bigger Bucks (BBB) were downright scary. They could still happen soon or in the not too distant future. And on top of all this endless new spending, they have yet to fix SS & Medicare.
