“Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth” (James 5:4). It is not the landowners, but the government that is fraudulently withholding American's wages.
Tax money that goes to building highways and the military benefit all tax payers and is legitimate. But taking money from one wage earner and giving it to another citizen is fraudulent—it is outright stealing.
It is legitimate to help someone who 'could' not work, but it is not legitimate to give money to those who 'would' not work: “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10).
It is a sophisticated way of buying votes, but it is immoral.
