@Susie Smith@facebook Little harsh, Susie. Many of the people on this thread are poor and have at some point in their lives been unable to work due to illness. Most bankruptcies are caused by health problems. The whole western world is not going bankrupt due to caring for the ill, and doctors are paid by the government. Stop thinking of YOUR taxes; that's a myopic view. And if suddenly you were no longer paying taxes, you can count on it, your salary would be decreased by the percentage you paid in. Salaries are based, in part, on the need to create and maintain a society with a functioning infrastructure, as well as a healthy, educated group of citizens. And if we declared that need none of our business, fine, there goes a chunk of money out of your salary that was never really yours to begin with.
