I am assuming you mean that we should take from the rich to give to the poor. We do this to an extent with our different tax brackets, and it actually is a good concept- in moderation. If we get carried away, and attempt a more comprehensive re-distributive program, we will be beset by many problems. Examples: <br />
<br />
1) This would be staunchly against the capitalist principles of our country.<br />
<br />
2) Giving charity should be an encouraged choice, not a governmental obligation.<br />
<br />
3) We will motivate people to be lazy, because, "Who cares? We get money anyway!"<br />
<br />
4) We will cause all of the wealthy citizens to move to other, friendlier countries.

Well I know somoene's gonna ***** about taxes even though that's NOT the same...But anyway, redistribution of wealth never ends well. Look at communism. The best thing to do is utilize a progressive tax to allow for a safety net to provide for opportunity, and benefit the country as a whole. Everyone uses highways, sewers, roads, electricity, etc. we all should help pay for their upkeep. The ideal is to create a very wide diamond instead of a pyramid. There's a small group of very rich on top, a small group of very poor on the bottom, and 90%+ of the population should be in the middle group. At the moment right now, 85 people own as much wealth as 3.5 billion people. That's not right. http://www.oxfam.org/en/policy/working-for-the-few-economic-inequality
