Why does this have to be the case? Is it a universal law that rich people have to subsidize less successful people's health programs, pensions, etc?

We live in a society. What you talk about is closer to serfdom. The rich start off by owning everything and dole out the spoils as they see fit.

If you don't want a society where the billionaires foot more than the working poor, that expect a full out revolution and the rich ending up with nothing. The only reason the system works as is, is that a high enough percentage of the population is comfortable. If you realistically think a society can exist where all citizens pay $X in taxes you are mistaken.

And of course you still haven't addressed why you think the addition of an extra train to Hamilton is a huge suck on tax payers. Mainly, because it isn't and you have no idea what you're talking about. Feel free to expand if I'm wrong.
