Half of America's Voters Pay No Federal Taxes
60 million. 130 million people voted in 2008. And of course those who don't have to pay for it think that the federal government should do more. This creates an obvious problem because those 60 million people demand to be given "free" stuff, which is paid for by hard workers who don't get free stuff.
Originally, the Senate provided a check against this kind of populism by keeping power decentralized. Things are going to continue to get worse until that constitutional check is restored.
