you reap what you sow, but only 2/3

Here in the Philippines, almost 1/3 of a hardworking person's income can go to taxes.

When you're a kid, you're told to study hard so you can get a good job so you and your family can live a comfortable life. No one ever tells you that you get to reap only a little over 2/3 of what you sow.

One can argue that a person keeling over from the gut punch of her taxes is much, much luckier than the person scrambling to find his next meal. And that's true. 

But still. One-third! How is that fair?
