[quote=JimN;898609]Obama started talking about re-distribution of wealth about 2 weeks into his campaign. I liked what he had to say, at first. Then, I heard him talking about these other things that I'm firmly against and I tossed the anchor overboard.[/

Exactly, and that's how you should vote. That's how I cast my ballot: a couple of hot button topics I'm for or against. BTW, last I checked Obama IS a politician isn't he?

I wonder if those of us in the military will get paid end of month January? It seems like the politicians always manage to give themselves large pay raises while stopping pay to the military first. I have an idea how to cut spending, stop paying the politicians.

and yet another reason to be disgusted with the dopes in D.C. --> they also have forgotten why we are free... My next vote is to fire who ever is in office...regardless of the outcome. My thoughtful vote in November 2012 was about as useful as stepping on a rake... doh!!

Hoping to get your tax refund soon? Don't hold your breath. This will hurt the middle class the most who depend on there tax return's every year!

Isnt it interesting that this news was released at 5:23pm on a friday of a holiday weekend when everyone is too busy to notice it. We need to keep an eye on what these scumbags are doing during the holiday!

While I can understand someone using a large refund as a kind of saving plan, it's not great money management WRT making enough to live on, IMO. They could have changed their exemption to allow getting the money through the year to use and making sure they maximize their deductions to ensure that they won't have to pay at tax time.
