Your argument seems to be that it is a lot easier to pillage working class and middle class people to pay for money that government and retirees want to spend.

I think that's quite true, but what's ethical about it?

I didn't say that. I said "Money flowing into the hands of lower or middle class people tends to be SPENT, and that money then allows other people and businesses to spend and/or hire more people to do work..."

How does pillaging middle class compute with giving those same people money? Isn't it better to have people working to earn money, rather than handing them money? I don't think you understood what I said.
