Let's switch

Mr. RDCS says:

First let me start by saying I'm neither Republican or Democrat because I like to think for myself, but to each it's own therefore I won't judge anyone. 

That being said the poor and middle class America's will receive a small savings of about $2,200 a year and after taxes that's about $1,300 a year or $25 a week for 8 years and then it expires. BUT the Millionaires 21% tax relief will never expire which means their taxes will never increase like the poor and middle class, not to mention Millions of people will lose their Health Care. But NOT the Millionaires, who I personally don't have anything against.

I pray for our nation and I am believing God for true change that truly benefits everyone and NOT just the Millionaires…

Lastly Charles Barkley was being funny to some, but he was also being brutally honest, as he's a Millionaire who will receive a huge tax break. 

In closing I really don't care what's said about my comment because at the end of the day we will all leave this world the same way that we came in, and that's with nothing. And in the meantime, either you're ok with the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. It's all about what's important to you, your family and your loved ones, and how much we continue to believe politicians who continue to say anything to receive votes to get elected and sow discord and dishonesty to each of us, but it's up to us to think for ourselves and don't just agree with a party because we're affiliated with it, as I will always vote for who I believe is the best candidate, not someone who spreads hatred, dishonesty, pits people against each other and believes that one class of people is better than the other. Give me someone who has experienced what it's like to work with poor and middle class and rich people of all races and backgrounds. I love all of God's people.

Be Blessed everyone.
