That's wholly beside the point.
It's not that they "need" a "deduction". It's that THEY EARNED THAT
MONEY. Taxation should be consistent and even. "From each according to
his ability, to each according to his need" is NOT a capitalistic idea.
If I bust my ass and make six digits a year, I want as LITTLE as possible
of that money to go towards supporting freeloaders who -didn't-
sacrifice sleep and time with their families to get there. I'll give to
church or charity to help those in need. I DO NOT trust the gov't to be
nearly as efficient or intelligent about it.

Speaking purely from an evolutional point-of-view, there are some people
that society doesn't "need" to help. Crackwhores with 8 kids don't need
taxpayer funds. They need their kids rescued by CPS.
