Town Square

Town Square is an opinion column to which readers can submit their views. As a true community newspaper, we’re always looking for ways to include community thought and pertinent viewpoints, and this forum is a way to share those thoughts. Civility and fair comment will always prevail – Editor

Proposed Tax Reform
NO BREAK AT ALL: Anything that removes most of the deductions most Americans typically take on their taxes WITHOUT lowering the tax rate is no break at all. Republicans seem to think that the thing concerning most Americans is the LENGTH of the tax return. Really? That’s not MY problem at all.

‘TRICKLE DOWN’ NONSENSE: More “trickle down” nonsense is just deplorable! Not one more penny to those that don’t need it. (1) Tax, and tax heavily, the money that has been hidden in off shore accounts for years. (2) Tax the corporations that have fake off-shore headquarters but want to sell products in the US. (3) Remove the earnings cap on Social Security (4) “Medicare for all” (5) Real background checks on all gun sales. (6) No “assault weapons” or high capacity magazines or any devices to make existing ones auto. (7) Tax ammo and use tax to assist families of shootings. (8) Make gun manufacturers and sellers liable for shootings.

NO TRUST: I do not trust either side to do what is best for the people. Keep up the negative campaigning and attacking each other.

OBAMACARE IS A BUST: Obamacare is a complete bust not just in my state but the majority of states. I had Obamacare and lost it due to high premiums. The marketplace has shrunk to just a few companies offering insurance at double the rate.

LEFTIST BABBLE: Straight talk is a physical impossibility for the tired rhetoric of the Democratic Party. They have been nothing more than obstructionists for this entire year, and are currently relying on 50-year-old leftist babble to fool the people. Fortunately, most see through this and believe that we should at very least get through the entire “bill to law” process before we swallow the babble of the do-nothing Democrats. Wasn’t it the Democrats who proclaimed when in power, “…we need to pass the bill, so we can see what’s in it…”?
