For someone who is a math man, I think you should add up that taxing them more is still a drop in the bucket for our problems. Why don't you just take it all away from them, so the govt can run for just a few months then? Would that make you feel better?
Taxes aren't the problem. Revenue is not the problem. Spending is the problem.
We have plenty of aid at federal and state levels for the poor. Times are tough for many more than just the poor. What you need to do is visit a third world country and see what poor really looks like.
I don't agree with the statement I made at all. It was an illustration of the absurdity of your statement that climate change was fabricated so the UN can control our lives. Both arguments ignore real problems and instead create a boogie man.
