marble columns. Over 2000 wealthy tax payers paid no tax in 2000. Meanwhile, states are plunging into budget deficits. Perhaps the tax cuts are meant not to spur the economy, but to defund social programs? [MetaFilter]

ya think? nah, can't be{sarcasm} social programs don't work if they don't have money. motivation falls if people are underpaid. i recently heard that a master of social work costs around 90000, but pay is 25 to 30000, and usually in a city…. good luck digging out of that hole. but guess whose creating a larger one? you elected them, didn't ya.
