You Don't Deserve To Keep Your Money

Democrat Rep. Schakowsky was asked the following question on Chicago talk radio (WLS-AM 890) Don Wade & Roma show:

Don Wade, “Out of every dollar that I earn, how much do you think that I deserve to keep?”

Schakowski's response:

"I’ll put it this way. You don’t deserve to keep all of it and it’s not a question of deserving because what government is, is those things that we decide to do together. And there are many things that we decide to do together like have our national security. Like have police and fire. What about the people that work at the National Institute of Health who are looking for a cure for cancer."

She was further pushed by Don Wade about how much Schakowsky thinks she should pay in taxes to which she said was willing to pay more. So the obvious was brought up. “Why don’t you pay more?” Jan Schakowsky retorted with the most brilliant and thought-out answer. "That’s just ridiculous."

Listen to this show on the Internet 5-9 central. It's usually pretty interesting with many interviews like this.
