I'm with you there.
Last year I paid zero taxes and got a nice refund. I did have income, though not great, but better than many people working for others.
Good thing I held onto the money because I'm paying for 20 other people's refunds this year.
The rich are already paying most of the taxes, contrary to some statements by politicians. But I think the 50% of people paying no taxes should have some skin in the game. Otherwise, they can keep voting for more benefits and government spending without sharing in any of the costs.
