Do you think everyone should pay the same price for things or is it "fair" to give a discount to those who make less money than others? This could apply to the cost of food, housing, health care, etc. What about luxury items? Should those be on a sliding scale also? What about taxes?
If you make more money than some, do you think you should be given the same discounts? Should you have to pay more simply because you can afford it?

lol Grace... I am asking because I have heard people who pay more complain about others having discounts based on income.
I have some pretty strong views about money and politics. I definitely believe in lower taxes and less government intervention. But this question always puzzles me. Do you know that insurance companies at one point were able to hold doctors accountable for charging them a higher fee than other patients? And yet they could reimburse as low as they wanted and call it usual, reasonable, and customary.
I guess I am trying to wrap my mind around where the line is there. And how the government could best enforce it. And it can apply not only to our health care system but housing and other things as well...
