        because this does not take into account the massive class of workers who work for a large business such as suggested by this, only to find their wage cut or job lost because the company has overproduced and led to a trade recession, i.e. the people at the bottom of business who actually do the physical work for the company and actually bring the profits in.
        Besides, analogy is intrinsically weak, as David Hume argued, analogy is limited due to the fundamental differences of the two things being compared.
        In other words, yes, the people at the top may have worked hard, but this analogy is weak due to the fact that the people at the bottom are not in a majority of being lazy and not putting in any work - this is an extremely victorian and frankly quite ignorant way of looking at low incomes since it is not due to their own laziness - basically, the people at the top who complain about higher tax rates for higher public spending could not give less of a damn about the workers at the bottom, as long as they profit. It's selfish, unfair, greedy and plutocratic, and frankly, Obama's policy of higher tax rates at higher incomes to improve living standards at the bottom of the income chain is disliked simply because people give more of a damn about the massive pile of money they have coming in, of which the amount actually being taxed, is frankly not needed anyway by large corporations and rich businessmen, than people who are actually doing work at the bottom. I fail to see exactly how this system can be analogised with lego. Businesses are very quick to complain about their high incomes are taxed highly but very slow to concede that their labourers are the ones getting the shit end of the stick when the recession inevitably sets in.
        That's why it's not a perfect representation.

      Have you ever been on food stamps/assistance before? That's pretty much exactly how it works...
