Democrats See Taxes as Charity, Republicans Do Not

Research has shown that Dems actually do give less to charity because they believe taxes are charity. On the other hand, Republicans really do not believe it is the government's job to give out charity. They give at a much higher level than their lefty counterparts. Dems like to pretend they are holy, but Jesus never said it is the government's job to redistribute wealth. THAT is for the individual to do. Habeeb answers why Dems see higher taxes this way: "They believe that if we only taxed Americans more, the government could better tackle the problems of our society. Or as the good professor so eloquently put it, the government could 'more equitably deliver superior benefits.' That’s what we all think when we think of government services: superior benefits!"
