Why do "liberals" have to be pro-taxes in the 1st place?

I'm socially liberal but fiscally conservative.

But unlike Bill Maher I don't pretend one of the two parties/factions represents me.

I think "liberals" are willing to pay taxes for social programs but no one wants their hard earned money to be wasted, no matter who you are.
