A Little Reciprocity for Once Might Be Nice

Pacifists pay taxes that fund wars they don’t support.

Lower middle class people pay taxes that offset the costs of tax cuts for people who make more in a week what the LMC people make in a year.

Atheists pay taxes that help subsidize religious entities’ tax-exempt status.

In the meantime, funding for all levels of public education is gutted to help balance state budgets, and teachers are scapegoated as being somehow “rich,” all while corporations find ways to pay as little in taxes as possible.

One tiny little concession to help women get access to birth control (thereby keeping the abortion rate from being as high as it could be) and the beneficiaries of the above get bent all out of shape.

You’d think they want pregnancy to be unwanted and dangerous.
