"...47% don't have skin in the game..."
This stupid attitude is what the major problem is. The 47% live here, work here, have their homes here, raise their kids here, and fight and die for this country. That's the real game, and that's the real skin. Even taking the absurdly narrow-minded attitude that taxes constitute all of "the game", the 47% pay all manner of other taxes to federal, state, and local jurisdictions.
