Do You Understand the statement "making work pay" ?

Even the name of Obama's tax credit is insulting: "Making Work Pay." What makes work pay is the willingness of other people to pay for it. Taxes subtract value from this arrangement; they do not add to it. Obama not only wants to take his cut; he wants to take credit for taking less than he could have—indeed, for letting you keep anything at all. As far as he's concerned, the fruits of your labor are yours only by the grace of government.

  • Why am I not surprised only the 3 of us answered this question?
    I understand it completely, I am working and others are not. I am paying and others are not.
