“Yes. I’m of the philosophy that we should help others in need. Sometimes it means sacrificing, and prices might go up a little, but it’s for a greater good.”
“If they do increase the tax they should probably be more diligent about making sure able-bodied people get the jobs they need.”
“People are going to lose jobs regardless of the taxes. The rich will get richer and people who work for money will lose what stability they have now.”
“In this case, yes, if the economy continues to improve. If you take money out of an improving economy and put it into other things you will make the situation worse.”
