Suppose you just received your paycheck and were walking to the bank when you were approached by a man that was in the bottom 50% of income earners in the nation. The man requests that you give him $500 so he can pay his mortgage and fill his car with gas. Feeling that you can put your $500 to better use than to pay this man’s mortgage and fill his car with gas you tell him, “No.” The man then pulls out a gun and tells you that if you do not give him the $500 that he will take your money by force plus a fine for not giving it to him the first time he asked then put you into a cell where you will spend three to seven years of your life considering your mistake. Does it seem fair that this man should have your $500 that you worked for? I’m sure you can all see where this is going, but now imagine that the man is the IRS. This is exactly what happens every time anybody in this country makes money that is in the top 50% of income earners.
