I thought the secret sauce for America was making the money yourself and working hard to get it. It seems UnAmerican to give someone a lot of money so they can sit around and do nothing. But what do I know? My Grandparents where homesteaders and built their wealth up all on their own, just like I have.

That used to be the secret sauce. Now the tax code rewards speculation and punishes honest labor. In the words of Ronald Reagan "If you want less of something, tax it." The tax code is designed to discourage paid work. From a tax standpoint, earning a living by doing productive work is like taking a punch to the face.
