Land of the free home of the rich
What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.
The math is wayyyy complex, but kind of breaks down to:
- More money in more pockets=more purchasing=stronger economy
- More money in more pockets=wider tax base with fewer exemptions (less necessary)
- Stronger economy+wider tax base=much higher federal revenues=more services.
To the individual it looks like: “Well, I jumped a tax bracket or seven, but since I’m making 70-100% more, I can afford to pay the 30% off the top, get myself a place to live, buy food, and still enjoy these awesome services.”
