You know, something just doesn’t add up with how that’s worded:

Wait, is “free” not really “free”? Shocker!
Um … if it is "FREE" then why would I have to "pay more in taxes"? That is not how FREE works people https://t.co/GlbaHxZAsa

Ehrm….taxes followed by “in exchange for free…”? I feel like there’s an oxymoron in there somewhere. ? https://t.co/eUuZNYCLqo

And yet, those who use it in their “plans” seem to get plenty of support, as evidenced by the fact that over half of respondents answered “yes” to the question.
