<<It's ok to get outraged that your tax dollars are supporting lower income people and that somewhere, at least some of them were not responsible..but we're not allowed to get outraged over welfare for the rich where folks like Warren Buffett (by his own words and no one has won the bet when challenged to disprove him) and other CEOs pay less taxes thanks to the 'welfare for the richest-of-the-rich" tax codes...>>

There is quite a large distinction to be made between collecting government subsidies and not paying more taxes than you need to.

Conflating the two is an old liberal con job.

Taxes are a necessary evil, but ethically it still resembles someone putting a gun in your back and taking your wallet. It's money taken from someone by force or the threat of force. That it's legal makes a definite difference but doesn't change the basic nature of the transaction.
