For awhile, I was against raising taxes on anyone, then softened to everyone except those making over something over $250K but with a COLA so that we don't end up with a problem like the constant AMT quick fixes every year. Since I have made over $250K once or twice in my life, I have a right to ...
Great nation, Lost it's way, future generations unable to carry mortgage left by the previous generation(s). Make offer! 3rd Party Approval required. Multiple Lenders.
