Military tanker should be built by U.S. citizens on U.S. soil
I am appalled that the people making the decision on where the United States Military tankers will be built, are being paid by United States Tax dollars.
For the good of the United States of America and for our United States based company Boeing, there should be no decision to make. The Tankers for our United States Military should be built on United States soil and by an American Company.
Shame on all the people that would think differently on this issue.
With all that our country is going through, the sacrifices that the American people have endured, then united we should stand.
Everyone should be writing their Congress and Senate representatives. These are people that have been elected for by us, to work for us and were in some cases re-elected into office to protect the best interest of the American people and this Great Country.
I am more than disappointed in our leaders (this includes the Military employees that are making the decisions), that this would even be a talking point. Remember that the people making these decisions are paid with taxpayer dollars, which makes them employees of the American people.
We as Americans should have a say in this and I say, Boeing is who should be building the tanker and even if it costs more money.
Remember you get what you pay for and the return will be great, it might even help to take us down below 10 percent in unemployment.
Think American, buy American, breathe American and support the United States of America!
United and proud to be an American.
Top earners pay the most in taxes
Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA) during the recent tax-cut debate a bunch of “trust-funders” in an attempt to paint the wealthy in our nation as people who have not earned their money.
Unfortunately for Congressman McDermott truth doesn’t agree with him and actually 80 percent of millionaires in the United States are the first-generation of their family to be rich.
Research has shown that wealthy Americans working hours have increased since 1965, while working hours for low-income has decreased. The top fifth of earners, work weeks in excess of 49 hours have increased some 80 percent.
The highest one percent of earners pays 38 percent and the top five percent of earners pay 59 percent of income taxes in America.
Also, that evil rich contributed more than $150 billion in 2009 … Poor Rep. McDermott, but the truth will bite you in the butt every time.
