More taxes = More poverty. How are you going to combat poverty if you are stealing people's income?

People do not need more taxes.

What people need is to have less money stolen from them in taxes, so that they will automatically increase their standards of living.

A poor person will never stop being poor if you are just taking away his money in taxes. Now, I'm not talking about the minimum wage earners. I'm talking about the working class people who set up a business to escape poverty

    If you're arguing for a regressive tax structure, then I'm in agreement with you.

    The Democrats won't combat poverty. That's why Democrat voters are generally impoverished....because they are too stupid to realize socialism is a trap.

    The compassion of the congressional democrats creates poverty.

    Paying people to have illegitimate children and not to work and for long periods of time removes all ability for them to care for themselves.

    Soon the become trapped in poverty forever.

    Now taxes are raised on the rest to pay for this poverty.

    The congressional democrats love poor people so much they want as many poor people as possible.

    Giving more power and control to the democrats party.

    Relax.  You don't make enough money to pay any taxes.  Those of us who do are subsidizing YOU.  You're welcome.

    1. Taxation is not theft. It is both a fundamental and appropriate function of any organized government to collect and disburse public revenues.

    2. A significant number of people already have a very good standard of living. Why would we be seeking to better that already high standard of living by relieving such people of their responsibility to contribute to the public coffers and thus make possible the civic endeavors that promote the well being of the less fortunate?

    3. We already have a system wherein those without the means to pay the federal income tax are not required to pay the federal income tax.

    4. I'm all in favor of public programs that allow working class people to start their own business secure in the knowledge that even if that business fails they will not become homeless, not lose their children to foster care, not end up with zero income and little prospect of future income. You know, a safety net so that nobody is risking destitution so utter as to destroy lives and families. Of course people are going to "play it safe" and not start a new business when the risks are so devastating.

    Great, simplistic observation of a very complex issue ...something a third grader could be proud of.

    Your assumption doesn't make any sense. 

    States  with low taxes have the highest proverty rates per capita.
