As a conservative I am tired of hearing Republicans go along with liberal plans for payroll tax breaks and tax holidays for the poor. Everyone in this country must pull his own weight or our country will deteriorate into poverty that has not been seen for several hundred years in this country. The bottom 48% of wage earners already pay no federal income tax. Many of them also receive thousands of dollars in so-called tax refunds despite the fact that they pay no taxes. Many of them also receive thousands of dollars in food stamps, WIC, energy subsidies, rent subsidies and a plethora of other subsidies. Many people who are considered below the poverty level have much more disposable income than so-called middle class tax-payers. Tax cuts for the poor will not help our economy, create jobs or get people off the government dole. Benefits for the poor keep them lazy and unproductive which hurts the economy and the will loose their incentive to make something of themselves.
