Wants economy to stay in the hands of private citizens, against government competition within business. Low taxes , prideful of their work, and want to keep what they earn.
But Low taxes means that there are less government programs to assist the needy, so it’s always a balance of who has enough power. If the lower classes have too much swap they will screw over the rich and the rich they will leave our country, hurting our GDP. If the upper class have too much power life in the lower classes will severely deteriorate and the image of the country tarnished.
