Or as I heard a Republican congressman (Mo Brooks) say on television: "it creates incentives for people to work."
Otherwise, you'd just sit there and live the good life. They are doing it for you, poor people. It's about time you got off that gravy train. God invented poverty for a reason. (Other than to give people of means someone to hold in contempt.) Maybe if you stopped some of that selfish leeching (eating, having a roof over your head, educating your children), you'd be a better person in the mold of Congressman Mo Brooks.
I'm sure that's how Jesus sees it.
Jesus was also a big fan of tax cuts for the rich.
Another way of looking at it...
