26. That isn't the point
I don't understand why people take it that way. If you don't tell your friends and family that this is exactly what taxes and government is for, NOW, then when will they ever have an opportunity to understand. The ones like that doctor in the above post, that's who people are talking about. You need the rest of the country to "imagine" what it feels like to be in your shoes and help. Well the poor need that doctor to do that too and understand that capitalist economies with $5.00 an hour workers are ALWAYS going to create masses of poor that are going to need some kind of help.
