that's the point. they'll still have a lower tax rate than Mitt Romney.
Second is that many restaurants pool the tips and have a means of distribution such that the non-front line staff also get a share (busboys, etc.). By giving a cash tip to the waiter you increase the possibility that the non-client facing staff (who probably need the money even more than the waiter) gets screwed.
i never heard of other employees being stiffed by waitstaff. on the other hand i know more than one person who had the restaurant steal a portion of the tip from the waitstaff. granted this type of theft is less likely to happen at the type of places i eat at but still.
