Everybody wants and gets free stuff from the government. Poor folks just don't have the luxury of having someone else squealing at the trough of the nanny-state on their behalf.
Sure they do they are called democrats and all the want is how much they can steal from the middle class paychecks
I will agree with your inference that the middle class pays their disportionate share. But the democrats have an equal partner in the republicans in pulling off this theft. The main difference is that the GOP makes a greater effort in convincing us witless fools that what they are doing is good for us.
I will also agree that democrats do "squeal at the trough of the nanny-state" on behalf of the poor. But their main clients are still the rich folks.
