Why do people complain about others making money? How do you live without money? If you have found a way please let the rest of us know. Also, I have always thought people that are self sufficent and productive are the ones that want, without want where is progress in this great nation?

Get real people i am talking about the state making billions of dollars.I just think that more money should be put back in the local areas roads,schools,youth programs,jobs,ect.North central PA needs it just as much if not more than southern Pa.
