The Strib is trying to shame people into getting the Covid vaccine:
Let’s apply this (for sake of argument) “Logic” to other patterns of behavior, shall we?
- People who are “child free by choice” are “demographic moochers”. Everyone else’s children are going to have to pay the taxes and premiums to support them in their dotage, as well as their own parents.
- People who live bike and transit-centered lifestyles are “fiscal moochers”. The taxes that pay for their bike lanes, paths, and transit routes and vehicles are paid, extremely disproportionally, by drivers and their gas taxes.
- Those of you who are getting vaccinated, as opposed to getting and recovering from Covid the old-fashioned way, are moochers on multiple levels.
- People who net out at no taxes paid in are “tax moochers”. The benefits they disproportionally receive are paid in their entirety by others.
Please see to this, Strib.
