for those of you who 'pay' for people on welfare..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I have a question..If you work, taxes are taken out automatically. The taxes you pay go to government programs and what not. But, don't a lot of people get most of their taxes back? Plus if you claim dependents you get more out than you pay in. How are they paying for welfare families??

Being a senator is a full time job. It used to be performed for free by rich people with businesses that could run without them. I know most senators are rich anyways, but do you really want the country run by people born with a silver spoon in their mouths?


Quoting soon2bmomof3619:

Even if the PA programs didn't exist I am sure the government would still take the same amount of money and just use it to fatten their wallets and upgrade their private jets. Shouldn't that be the realy issue? The outrageous salaries of the senators? Especially since it used to be a public duty that was performed for free.

It already is, you did just say most of them are rich anyways. I really don't think they need several hundred thousand a year.

We don't get taxes back, we get a bill.

Oh- well just because she can afford it means that she should have to pay that much while other people get 4 X's what they put in back? My parents pay almost 40% of their income in taxes. Is that fair?

I personally disagree with punishing people for being successful, but that's just me, I guess.

I'm just saying, if the tables were turned, I'm sure most of you would've hopped on welfare right away.

I don't normally complain about welfare.  BUT, I sure as hell don't get most of my taxes back just because I claim dependents, let alone more than I paid in.  Generally, the ones who get MORE back, are using the EIC.  Which, technically is part of the welfare to work program.  

I also don't pay out a lot of taxes.  But I do pay taxes and only get back a small fraction of what I pay.

Are you kidding me? I paid out $22K last year and got "back" $72.  The people getting the big refunds are frequently GETTING the refund because of the EIC ANOTHER form of welfare!
