    Schakowsky: Americans don't deserve to keep all of their money
    CHICAGO (WLS) - A lot of reaction Wednesday morning to Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky's interview with Don Wade and Roma.

    Schakowsky said that Americans don't deserve to keep all of their money because we need taxes to support our society.

    “I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together. And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer,” Schakowsky said.

    Schakowsky also says one reason the 2009 stimulus bill did not succeed was because it was not large enough.​

    The 2009 bill was not large enough or designed well enough, either, to really get at the problem.

    It might have helped somewhat, but somewhat isn't enough.

    Explain to me why, unless you're your own Country/entity, you deserve to keep ALL your money? Just lemme know. Maybe I'm missing something.

    I always wonder why Jan shows up on Don Wade's show. He usually makes her look like an idiot.

    I meant as in Geographically. (obviously).

    If someone disagrees that "people don't deserve 100% of their money," then they are under the delusion that Government is free. Unless I'm missing something.
