You're on Topix 24/7. Your azz is not working or paying taxes so quit "pretending" that you're paying for anything.

<quoted text>Here in PA we have migrant workers. Their kids are educated in our schools getting free lunches. They travel our roads and don't carry mandated car insurance. They do indeed collect from the "system" because of what are commonly referred to as anchor babies.
They are hard workers, I'll give you that, but they are also victimizing the system we pay dearly into.
but they also contribute to the economy. And did you say free lunches?? Well, have you ever hear before that nothing is free?

First of all you're suggesting that all people on government assistance have to be on section 8, cash aid, food stamps or they they're not working and that's not the case. The majority of people on social services are underemployed people.
Moreover... any welfare benefits a person receives is the result of being in a work program or welfare to work program so they're actually earning their benefits.
You have an even smaller group of non-able bodied people who rely on all forms of welfare services but for you to claim that all people on welfare are of this variety is incorrect and misleading.
I understand that the money given to welfare recipients come from taxpayers and that's the basis of your argument but you have to understand that once cash is put into a welfare recipients hands, it's legally and lawfully their cash now and they're free to spend it accordingly.
If they purchase taxable items, they( not you) pay the taxes on the item.
You see, you're stuck on the premise that you the tax payer gave them money so anything they do with the money is paid by you but that's not true.
You did not purchase the taxable items that the welfare recipient purchased.
Nice sugar coated, convoluted reply. Under the assumption that me as a taxpayer "gave" them the money, you would be correct. I had the money "taken" from me and a second party "gave" it to them is the issue. If I give willingly, yes, that money belongs to the recipient. Since I haven't a choice, I am being robbed. Stolen money does not belong to the recipient.

Yes indeed, government jobs. That's a great reason to RAISE our taxes.

The government cannot give you anything they have not taken from somebody else.
People on welfare do pay tax they just use other people's money to pay the tax.

Yes indeed. It's the reason that the working class have to pay more tax, but the gubmint doesn't care, because in their money cycle, it's still income.
