last night because I posted what the law about water is aimed at (soliciting votes) and how easy it is to work around. Alerter thought I was posting right wing talking points or something.
I dont know whether we are just defeating ourselves or want to criticize GOPers so much which I get that we no longer care about truth.
The GA law was mean spirited and the original versions were flat out racist, but not insurmountable with local Democratic offices, Stacey Abrams, etc. Democrats are not as stupid and helpless as people seem to think. Weve proven that often.
it's difficult to discuss tax policy when people don't believe the facts. And, No, I do not support reducing taxes for higher incomes. I do support a robust Estate Tax system, increase in Capital Gains tax rates and corporate rates, etc.
