"The standard leftist position on helping the poor is: Increase income taxes on the rich and give the money to the poor in the form of welfare. The idea is that it's just not fair that someone has more money when someone has less money. By equalizing people's financial conditions, through the force of a progressive income tax and a welfare state, the financial plight of the poor will be improved. The left, however, is wrong. As our American ancestors, who lived without income taxation for more than a century, learned, the best way to help the poor would be by abolishing the income tax (and the IRS)." (07/21/16)
