Any reasonable person is going to say, yes programs to help the poor are necessary even in a purely capitalistic society ruled by a small government.
The issue is, you are paid according to your worth. So as a businessman you put a lot of time into your company and went to school for 10 years to get multiple degrees, should you really have to sacrifice 25 percent of your income because the government deems it necessary to help the less fortunate?(some of which very well may be, but there are some who are perfectly content being destitute and not working). Forgive my anecdotal example but, I worked with a man during the summer who double dipped(collected 2 welfare checks a month) WHILE working with me at a serving job 40 hours a week(he was being paid under the table). When you see things like that, it's tough to want to pay into those programs when you know a portion of the recipients are perfectly capable people.
People are unable to find work because the most qualified person(excluding nepotism and other similar factors) is the one that gets the job. If you can't find a job, unfortunately it may be due to the fact you have no discernible skill that sets you apart from the common man, and the company sees no need to hire you.
Healthcare is not expensive in the United States, and any REAL effort to bring healthcare to every American has been stonewalled by out of touch politicians. Ron Wyden, a democrat from Oregon had a tax credit plan that would have paid for itself in 3 years and insured every American holding a job, yet he was stonewalled by those out of touch politicians.
You have 3 homes, a jet and 10 cars because you worked your ass off and provided a product or service for others that was received well. It's a nice sentiment that everyone should have more money and the rich a bit less, but you and I know very well that's not very fair...or possible.
I left a lot of things out, I'm tired. I'll respond in the morning if you choose to do so.
