Well, that number may vary, but for a person making 50k a year, they would pay just 10 cents a day. Which equals $36.82 per year. And that includes monies for WIC, and the school lunch program. Here is abreakdown of what I just said and where the rest of your tax dollars go.

 Fine. I still don't want to pay $36.82 a year for other people. I could use that for my own family.

So you'd rather not have any of your tax dollars go toward feeding the hungry. Am I correct?

 Correct. I'd like to keep the money I earned.

Yet you felt the need to come in here and state that. Original.

What is your point?  You shouldn't feel bad or have to justify it.

I don't feel like looking it up, but because I make significantly higher than $50,000 a year, I would pay significantly more. It's not really that big of a deal to me. I know even without the programs in place, they would still find a way to take those taxes, it would just be for something else. Let people feed their families, I'm not going to stress about it.

Almost no one would have a problem with it if that's what it was used for more often than not.  When people have a problem with it, it's because it's not controlled and is HIGHLY abused.... god.  Don't try to spin it into something it's not.
