The stale narrative that the wealthy don't pay their "fair share" is often parroted by leftists not only in America, but around the world. The numbers really don't back that up. Take a look at the articles we have here (on our website) explaining how the wealthy not only actually pay more than their fair share, but also provide for society in many other ways.
Forced government run healthcare is an encroachment on your liberty. You will no longer have the choice to opt out. You will no longer have the freedom to decide what providers and insurance companies you wish to use to take care of your family. No. It will be a forced tax, whether you like the insurance coverage you're receiving or not. It will be a forced tax, whether you need the insurance coverage or not. And here's a spoiler alert... You're not going to like the result. Your taxes will increase exponentially by many estimates, and your healthcare will take a massive hit. We're talking multi-month waiting lists for simple procedures. You'll be forced to give money to the government for a substantially inferior product in terms of quality. Does that sound like liberty to you?
ANSWERS: 1) Group B. 2) You turn Group B against Group A by telling them Group A is the source of all of your problems, that you're a victim of wealth inequality, that group A provides nothing to society, and that you deserve a piece of the pie Group A worked to create. 3) When Group A runs out of money because the government has taxed them to death and "redistributed their wealth" to Group B, the government has no choice but to tax Group B as well. Suddenly, Group B is actually paying for the stuff they were promised would be free. The people who amassed wealth by creating businesses that employ millions, are no longer able to sustain, and close down their businesses. Jobs are lost, innovation is stifled, the economy crashes and burns. There is no longer the incentive to create or innovate or take risks to create a company, to fill a void in society, because those capable of doing so only see the rewards of their hard work taken from them to give to those who didn't take the same risks. Society as a whole is equally impoverished, equally miserable, and all of the great things that economic liberty created for us... disappear. Promising free stuff to Group B by taking it from Group A is a vote grab.
