    ...why aren't you voluntarily contributing the amount by which you think it's too low? If not to the government, then to those things you think the government should pay for?

    I contribute to many charities.... and would continue to do so even if my marginal tax rate were to go up.

    I give more than the increase in taxes to the very types of programs I would hope tax increases would be used for.

    Other then basic government services like trash removal, defense, highway repairs is all i want to pay for. I personally dont want to work to pay for the inner city woman who can't keep her legs close so she has the government pay for her 8 unlawful punk kids. Its my money not the governments. The less handouts that are given, the less the demand will be.

    But if you believe the government does a better job than the charities, why not just cut a check to the IRS for the amount you'd give to the less efficient charities.

    On the other hand, if you like me, check out the efficiency of the charities you give to in addition to the works they perform and find that superior, why not keep the money that would go to an increase in taxes and give to those agencies that perform more work?

    SO stealing our money and pretending it is the right of the Government to take our money for programs they have no authority to run is ok by you. But then I already knew that since your a liberal Democrat that has never met a tax increase you didn't like, never met a spending bill for your pet projects you couldn't get behind.
