Why DON’T you have a bank account?
I grew up below the poverty line and have had the same account with the same bank since I was 8 years old.
You should have planned your life a little better.
My mother was one of those poor people who instinctively aspired to act middle class even if she could never be middle class.
Being middle class meant having a bank account.
I’m sorry your mother wasn’t as smart as my mother, but the thing is:
My mother REALLY wasn’t very smart. At all. So…
I don’t think it’s fair that poor people do not pay taxes. I work hard, I do not use social services, emergency rooms, food stamps, nor do I burden the public school system. Why should I pay almost all the taxes? It’s just not fair.
It costs my city, state, and country less to protect me than to protect people in the ghetto. There are less fires or incidents requiring the police in my neighborhood than in poor areas. Why should I pay more for fire, police, medical, or social services when I hardly require any of them at all? That’s like asking me to pay for food that fat people gorge themselves on while I eat moderately. It’s just not fair.
Poor people put the greatest burden on our country and pay nothing. They fill our schools with their numerous children, fill our hospitals with their crack-whores and drive-by shootings, remove food from grocery shelves using my tax monies, and live the American dream while crying that I’m not paying my fair share of taxes. It’s just not fair.
If we didn’t tax people like me so heavily, if we eliminated the egregious corporate tax (the second highest in the world), there would be more money available for investment, more jobs and consequently more people working and thus less poor people, who are a blight on our nation. That would be fair.
