IS this really that difficult????
Please show me where, specifically, it states that the Govt is to take care of people.
Everywhere in the Bible it states to take care of your fellow man. That is left to the person....not Govt.
I beg you, with pretty pink sprinkles on top, with a cherry. Provide a single instance where it states that people should be taxed to give to others.
That Govt is to take care of people.

He also said that you should give unto Caesar what is Caesar's. And that it is easier for a camel to wiggle through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven.
And did he tell Caesar what to do with his money?
Precisely. What business is it of yours what Caesar does with your money?
No. He told CHRISTIANS what to do with their money.
Give it to Caesars and/or the poor.
On June 12, a Thursday, the House and Senate approved the budget and the House clerk’s office began preparing the document for delivery to the governor — a process that can take several days. State government could have shut down and the state could have lost its stellar bond rating if the new budget was not in place by the start of the fiscal year July 1, so House Appropriations Committee staff worked furiously to finish the job early. They were ready to hand the budget over by Sunday, June 15, which happened to be Father’s Day.
House Clerk G. Paul Nardo called the governor’s legislative director, Felix Sarfo-Kantanka Jr. that morning to say his office was ready to drop the document off. But Sarfo-Kantanka was out of town celebrating the day with his father and said he could not accept it. He said no one else from the governor’s office was available. He suggested that they bring it over on Monday. That would have given McAuliffe until the following Monday to act on the budget, instead of the following Sunday.Howell was eager to get the document to the governor’s office given that the July 1 deadline was fast approaching, said Howell spokesman Matthew Moran. Nardo called Col. Anthony S. Pike, chief of Capitol Police, whose force is responsible for security at all Capitol Square buildings.
Pike got the call in the midst of his own Father’s Day festivities. But he put that on hold to head for the Capitol, 20 minutes away.
“I came in to do what I considered my duty and my job to help get the budget moved along, took time away from my family,” he said.
He escorted two House Clerk’s Office staffers into the Patrick Henry Building, into the governor’s third-floor offices and then into McAuliffe’s private office suite — a trip that required him to swipe a security access card three times, according to the governor’s office. They left the hefty budget bill on a chair outside of the governor’s personal office, which Pike said they never entered.
