I’m a union plumber and pipe welder, not an electrician. I make a good living, enough to where my wife and kids want for nothing and I am able to completely support my elderly mother. Will I ever be a millionaire? No probably not. Will I ever own a McLaren? At this point it seems the answer is no probably not as well. I do not begrudge the rich at all, and I understand all about choices and how they affect lives. I made my choices, and now I have to live with them and I do the best I can every day for those I love.
However, I’m not gonna get into another political argument here because the last one was bad enough, but if you really think that the poor are the tax burden you are delusional, and that is all I’m gonna say about that. I have neither the time nor the desire to debate this with you.
Edit: reading into your post a little more, it seems that you feel I specifically am either gaming the tax system, or accusing it of holding me back personally (your liberal use of the term “you” indicating me personally since it was my post you quoted) when I never said anything of the sort, and I paid a shitload of taxes not just last year, but every year prior. So if you have something personal to say to me, or accuse me of, take it to a private message so we don’t clutter this thread any further.
