I prefer to work/make less and live frugally.

First, it's my nature to be frugal.

Second, I don't want to help fund an evil government.

I also want to add that this woman stated she has two homes / mortgages she was paying for! I told her, if she wanted to cut costs, she would get rid of one of the houses. Oh, and the average middle class family doesn't have two homes.

Quite possible to do with deferring that income from current tax rates.
Take it out when you retire and most likely in a lower bracket.

I maxed out my 401K contributions every year. It not only lowered my bracket but was like having a p/t job with no taxes taken out.
Now I'm retired and in a much lower bracket.
