So I had this totally unreal conversation with one of the staff members at the clinic yesterday. Now, I don't make a ton of money, but I make about three times what she does, and she's explaining to me that we need to have a flat tax across the country--one in which I would essentially cover LESS of the national tax bill. I was arguing that I *should* pay more because I've benefited from the system and more of my income is disposable. Really? What is wrong with this picture?

You are wise and rational. Some people have been brainwashed into thinking it's okay low-income earners foot the tax bill. It's like those who demand the government get out of their Medicare.

But... how do you brainwash the people who would BENEFIT from thinking that it's alright to give more towards the rich.

I just. Don't. Understand.
