    Americans have a different perspective when it's their tax dollars paying the tab.

    Union Bob says: "You people are just trying to take away my rights. Unions worked hard for all our rights. You just hate the middle classs. You just hate the working man. You are just greedy and wanna line your pockets with more corporate cash. Now.....if you'll excuse me, it's time for my entitled lunch break, I'm going to lunch.....be back in a few hours."

    Which is why those not paying any income tax tend to continue voting for spending, liberal entitlement programs, and similar... .when they have no stake in the game, and can reap possible benefit at the expense of others, they simply have no care about how much or whether government really should be doing this

    which is why the other way happens as well....

    What I mean is this..

    Several weeks ago there was a thread in here written by someone on the left who was criticizing the wealthy by saying...and I paraphrase...."the wealthy dont care about the elimination of some entitlement programs because the data shows that most do not benefit from them"...

    Well.....duh?

    But the difference is, the wealthy pay for them....

    That's the bottom line, everyone loves collective bargaining when it's employers paying the bloated wages, benefits and pensions...but when they are essentially the employer...their tax money being paid out...they aren't so keen on the idea.
