because that's what the land of the free is all about.
Look here. The problem, IMO, isn't that rich people don't pay enough in taxes. I'm fine with every PERSON paying the same tax rate. The problem, is that the super wealthy, corporations and big business CHEAT the system out of a ton of tax dollars with the loop holes and please please don't try and deny that. You know, I don't come in here and pretend that there aren't too many freeloaders taking government handouts. But I can't understand why Republicans can't be honest about this redistribution crap and that the super wealthy aren't, for the most part, in close ties making sure they can cheat to pay less. That IS greed, and it's been around for a long time. Some of them give to charities, that's great. But if you cheat the system out of billions of tax dollars and then give a few million to charity, that's called a ****ed up system.
