Everyone what’s a government who does something to make their lives better in some way. That’s just a fact of life so yes everyone is both a giver and a taker to some degree. The rich act like they never get anything but that’s not true they pay a smaller percent of their wealth in taxes but they benefit more by getting a lot of breaks the poor never get. Poor people are more likely to go to jail for the same crimes rich people commit. Example OJ Simpson , Lindsay Lohan, other Rich spoiled people that get a slap on the hand probation while other people who get public assistance lawyers they get to go to jail. The whole idea of equal justice is one great American lie . The wealthy get the best of our legal system while the poor get the worst.
So many benefits for the wealthy .they got advocates to push their agenda in congress .Do poor people have that maybe to a small degree but not even close to the amount the rich do. Congress men and Senators meet daily with wealthy peoples front men giving them their orders on what the rich want.
It has come down to getting the best government you can afford to pay for so the people with the most money get the most benefits. You got loads of money to help pay to some ones campaign you get all the perks. Your poor you get all your perks taken away food stamps get cut ,health care cut ,veterans benefits cut anything that benefits either the poor or middle class is more likely to be cut. Cause we know their all takers really but he rich take way more but their givers right. Take our jobs move them over seas but that means their givers , take more in taxes back but their givers right. Pay wages that are way to little but their still givers. Do whatever they can to destroy unions ? So they can even give less to workers
