AM:"Yep. I'm just SO chastised. WhatEVER shall I do?"

How about thinking about what the subject of the post was....tax REBATES...not federal grab at middle class taxpayers to provide 'gifts' for those who pay no income taxes.

If you have 150 billion for TAX 'rebate', it should be to those who paid the taxes.

The money will be put to work.

It doesn't have to 'include everyone'.

100 million can just as well spend it as 110 million. The extra 10 million who didn't earn a dime, didn't pay any taxes, didn't pay any SS or Medicare, didn't pay any state income taxes......aren't entitled to the same 'rabates'.

Just understand that, and you will sleep better tonight.

As to the lib donors, just listen to Hillary. Thursday night, she was all 'Then I worked to set up this program (of federal give away money )for this or that group"...and I worked with others to 'fund this program' and 'fund that program' and 'provide benefits for XXX'....nothing but talking about confiscating wealth and redistribute it via the dozens of schemes she has cooked up over the years.

She was the prime mover to STOP the military BRAC (the commission to select and close unnecessary military bases) shutdown of two installations in NY state.

A responsible person? Hardly. Nothing but a free spending, give away con artist....who doesn't understand the meaning of 'balanced budget', who won't cut unnecessary bases (when they are in HER district), etc. Nothing but pork, pork , pork for the Senator.

Nothing but more and more give aways that will kill the economy dead and put 5 to 10 million out of work as employers flee the country under a lib dem administration.

Exxon Mobil paid 39.5 BILLION in income taxes last year. That was at the 41.5% corporate tax rate. Yet, that isn't enough for lib dems. They want even more 'windfall taxes'. More than 41.5%. Soon, Exxon Mobil will join Halliburton and every other oil company that will move overseas to avoid taxation at punative rates. Kiss 50,000 jobs goodbye. And Chevron and Schlumberge and every other energy company will follow suit along with hundreds of others.

For "AM" and the crowd, only when 100% of the revenues are confiscated will they be happy. And they'll find when they do that, they'll have 100% unemployed.
