Even those who pay no income tax (the bottom 20% or so) pay taxes.
There are a lot of 'poor' people who not only pay no taxes, they receive
welfare in many forms - ever heard of the 'Earned Income Tax Credit'?
Yes, they may pay some 'sales taxes', but they receive far more than
Well, maybe so. Why shouldn't they?

Queue random quote from some ancient playwright to try to add
intellectual weight to a failed argument:
Your argument is about morals and ethics. Its essence is that people on
welfare don't deserve the money. So I reminded you that if you want to
go the moral/ethical route, you'd better go to first principles. I
quoted Shakespeare because as far as I know, human nature hasn't changed
any in the 400-odd years since he wrote his plays. If you think that's
insufficient "intellectual weight", well, I'm sure you have enough
insight into morals and ethics to get the point anyhow, and you can find
more recent quotations.
Have a good day,
