1. Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Middle class and rich citizens should pay at least 30% of their income to federal and state taxes so that governments can use this money to help the poor. Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion. Do not use memorized examples.

When it comes to taxes and payments to government, some people think that midle and high classes could pay more to help the poors. Others, believe that it could not be better solution. Without a doubt, I think that support the poor class must be responsability of the federal governments and make one part of population solve this problem is not correct. First of all, making just some part of folk pay more taxes is unfair. Everybody life in the country and have the same rights. I agree that middle class have better financial conditions than poor class but they have a lot of bills to pay. They pay to security health, they pay to children's school, and the spend their money in other things such as supermarket that is very expensive nowadays. All those coasts are eccential to midle class every single month. Besides, they pay high governments taxes every year and in all the products that the buy. Paying 30% of the income to federal states would lead those class to have huge difficulties. Second, if the governments would care better of the federal money, maybe they would not necessitary increase the taxes to midle class and rich people. We have to lead in consideration the fact of bad manegment of public money. Governments waste great amounts of money with social programs that do not resolve anything. For example, in the last year, the american government make a program to help people that live on the street in New York. It was spend around five milions buying clothers and food to those people. According to The New York Times, the attitude helped just 10% of this population. In sum, was waste money and do not had any good effect. If governments waste the public money better, maybe they could not make other people pay more in taxes. To conclue, I strongly believe that make one parte of population pay more in taxes is not fair because in the midle clas could have financial troubles with this charge and if governments manengment better the public money, maybe avoid this decision.
