Tommorrow is the big day! I've been working hard on a big presentation I have to give at work Friday so have not had too much time to post, but I would be falling short if I did not ask you all to please support Obama, the candidate who will lower your taxes if you are making less than $250K for a family, get all Americans healthcare at affordable rates, and help to restore the USA as a respected nation in the world's eyes. Don't tell me you fell for that one?!?!? Who, pray tell, will be footing the bill for all these wonderful social services?
If you support McCain, go vote for him. I'll still like you. :-)
What is the end result of a system that rewards hard work with higher taxation? Do you suppose it's hard workers?
Be careful what you wish for Jeff, you may get it!
The ones making over 250 K.
Let me ask another question that might clarify the issue.
What politician has ever run on a platform of raising taxes?
Senator Obama's proposal DURING THE CAMPAIGN states a tax cut for those making under $250K. That is wonderful news isn't it?
Where do you suppose that additional money will come from as he begins to implement his social services? Who is it, that's going to willingly part with the cash to pay for these programs? Sounds to me like the people that stand to benefit the most from them would rather have a 'tax cut' than pay for additional services.
As you well know BGT, my thoughts and yours on 'fairness' differ.
Many people speak of citizens paying their 'fair share'.
Some folks think because a person has earned more that they should pay more and that's fair.
I think a system where everyone pays the same amount is 'fair'.
All differences aside, I would encourage those who'd like to participate in this part of the process to make time today to cast your vote. By all accounts, this should be a banner day for voter turnout. Will the candidate with the most popular votes win?
