I am over 60 I have raised four children work for the DOD and also a veteran. Now that somebody has finally done something that can be useful you want to repeal it just look what I have seen I can recall all of the help for the rich 2% of this country but not anything of any good that your party has done for me that would help it always sounds good when you put your spin on it but nothing that the republicans have done in the past 45 years has help Me or my family you always cost me with your trickle down economics and your still trying to continue it. I get it you are for the top 2% it a waste of money what you are trying to do you know it will not work instead of repeal sit down and fix it you know it should have been the public option . It was block all the way by the republicans so just what are you for! Give me a list of anything good that you have done for this country I mean I want to see a list of what you have done for the last 45 years that helped this country grow. I’m waiting it’s a very very short list a list means you can put more than one Item. What? You have one let me know!
Cowboy's Reply: Thank you Sir for your response. You are also entitled to our thanks for your service,...and you are entitled to your opinion,....just not your own facts.
The fact is that the richest 2% of Americans pay the lion's share of Taxes. At one time their tax rate was 75%.....Bush lowered it to something like 35%, down from 39.5%. If you make less than $250,000 a year then you not only pay a lower share of taxes but you pay at a lower rate instead. Nobody has yet to explain to the American people why any group should pay a disproportionate share of their income to the Government. This destroys initiative, as does the monstrosity called Obamacare. The Republicans brought you the lower tax rate you now enjoy. Oh yeah, plus they have kept the Socialists at bay since 1946 up until when Obama took office.
Speaking of Obamacare,....How anyone can defend it defies common sense. This bill was never debated. It was written by Democrats hidden in committee without any Republican input then voted on by Congress before anyone could read it.
If Obamacare is so good why have all the large organizations such as unions and the AARP received waivers from the Government so they are exempt from Obamacare? What is Congress exempt? Come on Partner, don't be a fool.
As far as you asking me to give you a list of what I have done for this country in the last 45 years,....well, that would be starting when I was 7 years old, and I knew the difference between right and wrong. Wrong to take money that does not belong to you,...kinda like the Federal Government. I served 22 years in the Armed Forces in a Combat Unit and earned the CIB.
