you're all a bunch of whiners. i have paid taxes all my adult life and will until i'm dead. that's the way it is. that's the way it's always been. do you think they invented taxation 10 years ago just to piss you off? my parents, their parents and their parents parents paid taxes. if you think we can lower taxes and pay of the debt, you're just dreaming.
where do you think the funding comes from for the national parks, the interstate highway system, national defense, veteran's hospitals, the border patrol, NASA, NOAA, etc. and yes, SS and Medicare. if you don't think you NEED SS and Medicare you are either planning on death at an early age or that you can amass a nest egg of at least $2,000,000 to sustain yourself for the 20 or so years at the end of your life when you are no longer working.
you act like you get no value for your contribution. that is definitely not the case.-Paul
