4. That is the one argument against it I haven't found a good counter to

 

"What stops every politician who wants to win from just promising an increase every election cycle? As long as they promise to fund it by only taxing a minority of voters (be it rich, smokers, immigrants or any other class of people leads than 25-30% of the electorate) they can play Robin Hood manipulating the payments to keep buying votes" is an exact quote from a debate on it I had recently.
