OH, but the rich can better afford the higher taxes.... </ sarcasm off >
Socialists - gotta love 'em...don't we...at least that's what they tell us. We have to be tolerant, you know....
The first four men -- the poorest -- would pay nothing; the fifth would pay $1, the sixth would pay $3, the seventh $7, the eighth $12, the ninth $18 and the tenth man -- the richest -- would pay $59.
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes.
So the new allocation would be: first four = 0, fifth = 80¢, sixth = $2.40, seventh = $5.60, eighth = $9.60, ninth = $14.40 and tenth = $47.20.
Simple math. No problem.

Now rewrite it, to include that the poorest 4 are actually being paid to eat their meals, and you'll have it.
Since Government disproporationately provides services (including welfare) to the poor, they are receiving money and not paying anything into the system.
