17% of Central govt Income comes from Income tax and this 17% goes to Defense (8 %) and Central govt schemes ( 9 % ) . So our money is used to spend on Defense sector and central govt schemes which Politicians announce like "We did this and we did that" .

Dwfense is just an example, you can add any other thing such as pension etc also instead of defence.

It definitely feels like it.

Ethical dilemma: Renegging on signed offer. Job A: Signed formal offer last week, official start date isn’t until October though. Job B: Thought I was out of running. Just came back though with an offer and it is significantly (like 60%) more compensation for a job that I am just as interested in. More prestigious company. How bad is it to reneg? No signing bonus to pay back or anything, but enjoyed the relationships I built but could really use that extra cash.
