moduspol comments on “Why are America’s farmers killing themselves in record numbers?”


Parent point: Why do farmers see taxes paid as providing no value to them? Don’t they want roads?

My point: Nobody wants to pay taxes they don’t have to, and farmers are no different from upper-middle class blue state residents in that regard. It doesn’t mean they literally don’t want roads.

That blue state residents already pay more in taxes than they get back is irrelevant. Nobody wants to pay more in taxes, and that doesn’t mean nobody wants roads.
