A tax break SOUNDS like a good idea. Keep in mind that for every dollar YOU get to keep, the people in the expensive seats are getting to keep millions. The government owes a crap-load of money. There is a huge expense (debt service) we have to pay (or borrow to finance) to service that debt. Every year they --- Dem or Rep --- have to borrow more money to pay for everything (including servicing our existing debt). When the gov't gives away 'tax breaks' it has less money to pay its bills. The pay-for-itself argument has proven baseless time and time again. It's just a cheap sales tactic. So although it feels nice having a little extra money today, your taxes ARE going to go up one way or another to pay for it. Add'l $.25/gal gas tax and the like...

One does not have to look very far to see the extent of the gov. care for it's own.

Just look at how we helped porto rico.

The admin stepped in to stop whitefish from getting the job done.

Once america has been squeezed to the tune of 30+trillion in debt we will be just like porto rico.

They had a chance to fix the corruption and drain the swamp there but they choose not too citing internal problems.

I think they like to kick the can and pretend everything is ok.

yep you spell well



it is kinda fitting that captain merica would be more concerned with phonetical inaccuracies rather than turning their lights back on.
nothing personal but if as a nation we can't even take care of our territories then how will we take care of ourselves in the long run.
I am glad that we have a good president and we didn't go the way of the dems but we still have to clean up the messes made.
