Yes, we all get free lollipops, always have, so we need to continue receiving free lollipops forever.
But, says the rational man, we can't afford free lollipops, we told you that years ago when we started giving them out. We told you we would eventually go broke. We don't have the money.
Yes you are right, we can't afford them, you greedy rational man, you need to buy more, and without free lollipops everyone will be sad so now we also need free gummy bears.
Free gummy bears? I just told you we could not afford lollipops and now you are adding gummy bears? We certainly can't afford gummy bears.
We can afford gummy bears for everyone if you will just buy them you upper earner you.
But I can't afford to "earn" if you keep taking so much of my "earnings". Why can't people buy their own gummy bears and lollipops?
Because you bad rational man, people need help, and because you work so hard and take so much of the "money", we need to extend the current extra syrup offer for another year, it is so hard to find syrup and being without syrup makes people sad.
But, says the rational man, if we have no money and I said we can't afford free lollipops or gummy bears, how do you think we can afford free syrup?
Because you are not giving enough Mr. ultra rich person.
But, people like me already pay over 70% of the taxes, over 50% of my income is taken and over 50% of everyone else does not even pay taxes! And all that sweet stuff will give everyone a tummy ache.
