9% approval rating of current Congress, they know make promises and don't keep them. Right wing TV will never pickup on the broken promise, they will find a way to spin it and blame Democrats.
You are free to donate as much money as you wish to any organization you want so long you don't ask the other tax payers to give you a tax credit.
Why can't we import prescription drugs? Majority of our prisoners have never been violent, yet they are behind bars for consuming intoxicants (alcohol was also once illegal). Guns actually do kill, murder rates would drop if guns were registered. Why do we give tax exemptions to organized religion? taxes not collected are give away in my ledger. Just remember there are 2 sides to a coin. What you have posted is total FREE GIVE AWAYS for what you want. Why do we give subsidies to oil companies? I would rather eliminate sending anyone to prison for a non violent crime like consuming so called illegal substance and did not cause harm to anyone physically or financially. Why is it your right to control family planning?
Health care in America exceeds 17% of GDP, why should it be so expensive. How does a person making $10 per hour pay for it. Republicans want private insurance and never raise the minimum wage. Poorer folks don't want the BEST HEALTH CARE in the World, make lower cost healthcare available for them. Try buying Prescription drugs, they just can't afford them. Similar drugs cost a fraction in other countries.
Not all politicians are stupid, primary voters drive them to extreme agenda. TV, media, talk shows make a living by creating controversy. Our Supreme court unfortunately is partisan. I would use the words Unethical and not Dumb. Obviously I believe Democrats are a better choice. Words like Cut & Run, Mission accomplished and many such deceptive slogans are the primary reason many of us became disenchanted by the Republican party.
Republicans are all talk and NO ideas. Party of NO IDEAS, just rhetoric. Unfortunately many Republicans are also not wealthy, they are just kept uninformed because they refuse to learn.
Do you have insider information? Did Hillary Clinton brief you about her agenda? You sound confident! Words of Limbaugh and FOX? That sounds about right. Who do you support? Define his / her agenda, do have nothing positive to say about your candidate? Say it.
My ideas are neither Liberal nor conservative, I am my own thinker.Yes, I will support Hillary Clinton in 2016, beyond that I have nothing to do with her campaign. To me my views are live and let live, Be ambitious but not greedy. Money is necessary to live a happy life, fortunately I have done well and make a good living. I hope she will be our next President. America needs her to lift our country to prosperity.
Here are the top issue if Republicans care to address: 1. Health care is a necessity not a fancy desire, health care is expensive, and tax payers end up paying for emergency hospital care at a much higher rate Republican is they are serious should accept federal funding. 2. Guns actually do kill people. Sensible Gun permits are the tools to prevent guns in wrong hands. 3. Let everyone be free to choose their religion. Politicians should leave the religion at home and in their church, laws are for all people and religion should not influence them. 4. Our foreign policy should be inclusive, seek opinions of our partners and adversaries, see if the difference can be resolved. Military action should only happen if all else fails. 5. Asking fair share of taxes is not wealth redistribution, it is to balance the budget and provide some quality of life for all. 6. You like your freedom, so do the rest of us. Women are capable of making their own decisions, so are GLTB folks, their marriage has no impact on rest of us. 7. Public leaders should be relatively free of lobbyist. Judiciary should take an oath of abandoning their ideology. 8. Be compassionate and not a task master. Help those in need, most folks are ready to try hard, yet cannot compete. No one who works a 40 hour work week should live in poverty. Please feel free to add, other thoughts.
Your wisdom is clouded by hatred. Go ahead get it off your chest. List your grievance and read them again, and see if they really impact your life.
Look up the results of past elections Democrats receive more votes than Republicans. Gerrymandering, disenfranchising voters is the only way.
Asking everyone to pay their TAXES is not wealth distribution. Earned income is taxed at a higher rate, expenses cannot be deducted, FICA and Medicare taxes are also collected. Capital Gains are taxed at a preferred rated and is subject to deduction of expenses. At Death the money is passed on without and taxes ever paid. YES I agree its income redistribution from the middle class to the wealthy, poor cannot afford to pay any taxes. After paying disproportionately more taxes, money is wasted policing the world or on wars that never benefit middle class.
Republican mantra: We shall share what you have. However My personal income and property are just MINE. We will not pay taxes, but we will demand all taxes collected shall be spend the way we (Republicans) see fit. Abolish School Lunch but continue Policing the World at our tax payers expense.
Your own words "was on purpose" , don't you think these deaths could be reduced with sensible gun laws? America is not a war zone, we have dependable police officers, citizens carrying guns on streets makes their job more difficult and hazardous rather than easy.
FOX seldom covers news, they usually spin create stories around news and mix it up with canned agenda of bashing Democrats.This entertains mostly white older men. These older folks lack the skills to comprehend that they are out of loop. Every new generation is smarter, technology savvy. This does not mean that the younger generation has higher IQ, it just means with age your mental abilities reduce, besides younger generation has the advantage of latest information and more tools to avail / access information to learn. Younger generation also adapts to science;
Faith and religion are just Beliefs, they use carrot and stick as their tools to perpetuate their Beliefs. Faith will eventually disappear. I do believe some FAITH has value, it helps you when you are grieving or apprehensive. Hopefully in future we will have artificial intelligence to put our fears in perspective.
