PRINCETON, NJ -- When given a choice about how government should address the numerous economic difficulties facing today's consumer, Americans overwhelmingly -- by 84% to 13% -- prefer that the government focus on improving overall economic conditions and the jobs situation in the United States as opposed to taking steps to distribute wealth more evenly among Americans.
Lack of Support for Wealth Redistribution Spans Political Party, Income Groups
Americans' lack of support for redistributing wealth to fix the economy spans political parties: Republicans (by 90% to 9%) prefer that the government focus on improving the economy, as do independents (by 85% to 13%) and Democrats (by 77% to 19%). This sentiment also extends across income groups: upper-income Americans prefer that the government focus on improving the economy and jobs by 88% to 10%, concurring with middle-income (83% to 16%) and lower-income (78% to 17%) Americans.
Half of Americans Think Government Is Doing Too Much, Not Too Little
A separate question finds Americans more likely to believe government is doing too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses (50%) as opposed to saying government should do more to solve the country's problems (43%). This broad question is not directed specifically at the economy, but reinforces the general idea that many Americans are leery of too much direct government intervention in fixing the country's problems. This philosophical issue appears to divide Americans by both political party and income groups. Republicans think the government is currently doing too much, by 72% to 24%; independents are split, with 47% saying the government is doing too much and 44% saying it is not doing enough; and Democrats say the government needs to do more by 58% to 36

Because the income tax system as currently constituted exists only to punish the achievers AND give government power. Take away their money, and you've got their nuts in your hand.
And if they send their storm troopers after you, shoot back.
That's the whole point of the IRS after all. Any legitimate law enforcement agency that operated the way they do (and with no constitutional mandate) would have been overthrown by now if it weren't for the sheep who accept the crap dished out.
A really rich person usually doesn't pay much in taxes. A poor/middle class person doesn't pay much. Who pays the majority of taxes? Where does government get it's power from?
It's supposed to be The People then government, not the other way around.
