C

E is nothing but the second statement of the argument.

No taxes------> Increase in income of real taxpayers and no pay for public employees.

This means, if taxes are abolished then, for all real taxpayers, income should increase but as per the argument income of public employees in not increasing. Hence public employees are not real tax payers.

Tricky. I read the answer before guessing, but C makes sense after reading what everyone has written.

Abolish taxes, and real taxpayers would find that their disposable incomes have increased. Abolish taxes, and public employees would find that their incomes have disappeared.

No tax = real taxpayers will have more income
No tax= Public employee will have no income.
Conclusion:- No tax = Any one who is a real taxpayer will see some increase in income except public employee who will not get any income.

Since after removing tax the public employee income is not increased, then it must be concluded thais employee are not real taxpayers.

OPTION C is the correct answer
