17. I would gladly

trade places with anyone in the top income bracket paying 60% or more in taxes. Who wants to have to rely on money from the government that is barely enough to pay the rent and buy groceries with every month? That's why the competition for jobs is always thick. People want to make the big bucks and not be dependent, but the same people who claim that everyone is too dependent on government are advocating some of the same policies that cause dependency. When you oppose raising the minimum wage, workers get paid less, thus increasing the role that the government has to play in order to keep them on their feet.
