So what does that make the 47% of American households that pay no federal income tax? Why do they get freebie federal government services and benefits that the rest don't?

I hardly think those paying MORE than their fair share are getting any special advantages. On the contrary, it's costing them far more than it should.

It is costing the upper-middle class and lower upper class far more than it should. It is not costing the multi-billionaires more than it should. Again the problem with broad generalizations and a lack of specifics.
