15. Could you provide a link to a reputable source on those numbers, please.
I think many are unhappy because the tax cuts for the rich was one of the major causes of our financial collapse. That financial collapse continues, as do the tax cuts. This is not the time for billions to go to electing more Reps, creating more bubbles, and sucking funds out of our national economy. We need to do so much. I seriously doubt the Reps will vote for a major infrastructure fix. Do you think they will? Will they vote to cut Medicare and Social Security "down to size"? I think so. This is just horrible economics.
