    Tax is not only Income tax. Everyone has to pay indirect taxes like excise duty, sales tax and now Goods and Services Tax. Income tax is not the main source of government income.

    India and USA are very different. Cannot compare apples to oranges.
    Every place has a system with plus and minus.
    These are part of the challenges of being in US, just like many challenges exist in India.
    No insurance, no easy care - its true in US.

    Yes, I understand. I should realize things are changing. Health care is also slowly inching towards american system.Already from service , health care has become an industry in many areas.

    This is just a general statement, but anyone with a green card should be very wary about using what many be perceived as public benefits these days. The current administration is trying to use this as a loophole to deny US citizenship in such cases, even though immigrants are legally allowed to do so.

    I think what ragnarok meant to say was that this 'administration' isn't doing any 'administering', in a democratic sense, hence not fit to be called administration, i.e, they are a dysfunctional bunch of kleptocrats. I don't think she was disputing Malstorm's post.
