No one is saying it doesn't benefit everyone. Conservatives love to argue against arguments no one is making, I guess that is the only way you can feel smart.
Here, I will lay it as simple as I can with no complex wording.
I take a road to work. I make twenty thousand year, that road helped me make twenty thousand. The owner, who needs that road to get to work, receive shipments, and bring in clients, makes over a hundred thousand. Who benefited more for the roads?
Or to put it another way, if society disappeared tomorrow, who would lose more? Me and my low income lifestyle, or the rich?
Who needs more police protection, me or the rich? Who needs the basic utilities more, my house? or a restaurant? Who needs superhighways more? The average person or a corporation who enjoys cheap transportation costs to ship around the country?
I really try not to name call, but if you think everyone benefits the same, you seriously lack critical thinking skills. Honestly, I think your economic beliefs, are just that, religion type beliefs, not based off fact, and you will just say whatever you can to try and defend them.
