But What If Programs Help Rich People Too?

This justification for lack of universal coverage of [insert appropriate government function here] is just a mirror image of the "what if your tax moneys go to blah people????" that conservatives use to fight the same things. People making the argument are stupid or lying (always the question). Benefits can be universal and taxes can be progressive. The top 1% doesn't care about receiving these benefits, anyway, they just don't want to pay the taxes.
