My household makes 400k a year.
I work from January 1 to July for the government, to subsidize services I don't use (e.g. public schools, public transport, subsidized housing, unemployment benefits, emergency rooms for routine checkups, welfare, medicaid, foodstamps).
From July to August, I work for a place to live, given that my work requires me to live in NYC where the rent is ridiculous.
From August to September, I work for food and clothes and transportation.
So, out of 12 months of the year, it is not until October that I am making money for myself.
And somehow, people want to raise taxes on me? Screw them.
