The Candidates said they would defund Planned Parenthood ($500 Million) and use it to increase Defense Spending. That money would buy ONE F-35 Fighter Jet that can be used when we attack Iran in 2017. After our great victory in Iraq I can't wait to see how many more people we can kill. We lost 4855 of our service people plus about 200,000 civilians were killed and the only thing we accomplish was to totally destabilized the entire Middle East. Is that what "Right to Life" actually stands for?
My taxes would increase by 11%.
sorry for the typo
That is what the 1/2 page ad had in the Pilot 46%. The amount it would cost me was $250 a year other than that I don't know where all these figures are coming from.
Rys I truly doubt you are babysitting my children. I have no children in school. My youngest is 38 and has a PHD. Unless you were home schooled someone paid to educate you and me. We need a educated society unless you want people on government assistance all their lives. Education is the key to success in life and it is worth every dollar. I truly doubt you'd want a lift operator operating on you if need be. I think what you are saying I've got mine and the hell with anyone else.
I just saw an Anti-Bond issue add in the Pilot that says are taxes would rise 46%. Personally my taxes went down since 2009 around $1000 a year and just went up $200 for this year. If the Bond issue passes it would rise by another $250 which means I would still be paying about $500 less than I paid in 2009. Why do the Anti-Bond/Government people have to lie to us and try and scare us into their way of thinking?
That is because the US Taxpayer is subsidizing the big corporations that pay minimum wage. McDonalds($8 Billion in profit last year) and many companies like them counsel new employees on how to apply for Food Stamps and Medicaid because they are paying below poverty level wages. When I grew up people that worked minimum wage jobs were teenagers but today almost 50% have families to support. You can thank our gov't in the 80's that send our manufacturing jobs to China to enhance "Stockholder Equity". If we had a minimum wage that just kept up with inflation those that qualify for Food Stamps would drop dramatically. This is called Corporate Welfare and we are all paying for it.
Very True! But when we invade Iran we won't have to pay for it and we all will get a tax cut that will not affect the budget. It worked in Iraq why not Iran.
What free stuff and goodies?
You forgot to mention Dick Cheney who lied us into Iraq and cost this country over $2 Trillion and tens of thousands of lives. Who bailed out Wall St and who's money did they spend? OURS! Why isn't he in jail? There is plenty of blame to go around both Republican and Democrat and don't forget it.
I don't but going to war as a pre-emptive action would be as stupid as invading Iraq. It should ALWAYS be a last resort.
