so today i was thinking about income taxes and the benefits of having high taxes and that certain american political parties doesent want to raise taxes in usa, even tho it would greatly benefit the people in general. this is because A LOT of people in usa doesent want their money "taken away from them", so the politicians naturally have to please the people in this regard.
this got me thinking what if:
You wouldnt need to get medical insurance to get a proper health care and it was freely(or for very low cost) available for everyone.
Medication for people who need it but cant afford and discount of medication that would otherwise cost you even slightest too much.
Homes for orphans.
Everyone with enough money to live by, rent, food, electricity, clothing, medical heath care etc and not having to think if celebrating christmas or birthday would make you eat beans for 3 months or having to think if they can buy an ice cream or not. whether they can get a job or not, but forcing them to try to find one, unless they are single parents of a small child or have some disability.
Social support that would help people(including refugees) to find jobs, home, help disabled, help depressed or otherwise mentally unhealthy people, help people to get rid of drugs/alcohol etc that is preventing them to live a full and happy life.
Free education, including university and other higher class schools(but excluding study materials for higher education, but offering libraries where you could borrow all books for free).
Government taking better care of public areas, such as supporting public transportation, building better roads for those who want to use cars etc.
and not wasting tax money on stupid crap like bombs to kill heathens in the other side of the world
But you would have to pay income taxes of 6%-47%, which would be roughly:
1500$(earned in month) = 15%
2000$ = 20%
3000$ = 30%
4000$ = 35%
6000$ = 40%
10000$ = 45%
15000$ = 47%, which is max
so my question is, would you prefer to live in a society where taxing was bit higher than it is nowadays in USA, but people would be taken care of better than in a first world country or would you rather have the model where you pay less taxes and not give a flying fuck about other people? and why?
