The marriage penalty is only one topic out of several.
So let me ask you this. When the government created the social security safety net and excluded from participation those working in the domestic and agricultural industries, do you think this was intentional or something else and if something else, what?
It was wrong and if you look deeply into it -- it was a political compromise to protect the agriculture industry from paying into FICA taxes. Because of the mega farms that relied on transient pickers and workers.
THey should have covered all PRIVATE farmers and domestic workers -- but then those folks would have to pay into the system. A lot really couldn't afford to do so if they were share-cropping in the 1st place. STILL -- they could have OPTION of enrolling.
Govt is brain-dead. Always was -- Always will be. Not every govt worker. But certainly WAAAY too many and maybe the majority of those that "decide and design" things.
I'm pretty sure YOU dont worship govt as any kind of equalizer or judge of fairness. But I'm surprised at how many minority voters there are that just CRAVE bigger and more muscular govt after the RECORDED history of constant insults, abuses and screwings.
