For a minute I swear I saw the lynching mob coming for somebody to hang.
Did I see hints of discrimination among Asians here? Man! Shame on you!
I am pro universal healthcare. That's all. Anything else is not feasible, plausible, possible, reachable, doable. Human interaction destroys all elements of parity or justice.
Let's talk about something I always find as a tool to make more than one of you mad because you can't sustain, and face the truth. We all, and I mean all of us, poor, middle class and rich class depend on the government for X or Y reason.
Healthcare. If it wasn't for Obamacare some of us would be in debt, or Trumpcare in the future, somehow your life will depend on whatever it happens to the program.
Taxes: 1031 exchange, depreciation, you name the incentive to own a second home, you depend on those programs to not pay as much taxes as an individual owning one home.
You don't want to depend on the government, go to live on your own island.
I may be wrong, but where I came from, you wanted a second or 10 more homes? Go ahead, buy them, run with the expenses, no tax deductions, you are on your own. No Prop 13 at all.
Can we talk about corporate welfare while we discuss section 8?
The latest proof comes from none other than Washington, D.C. Six years ago, a hotel developer began talks with D.C. council members to receive a $46 million tax credit if the company created 300 construction jobs for local residents. Yet the hotel in question is now weeks away from completion, and to date the company has hired only 90 District employees--less than a third of what they agreed to before getting their taxpayer-funded windfall. At this rate, D.C taxpayers are spending half a million dollars per construction job--all for the benefit of a private company.
