You voted for poorer Americans

Success - Article sent! close

The people voted for the government that they think "cares," but in reality they voted for a government that will make them poorer.

Germany, France and Italy have governments that "care" but in those countries the real spendable household incomes after taxes are 40 percent less than that of the United States. The goods in Europe are priced 50 percent higher because of all the taxes. The European restaurants have fewer customers because the people have less spending money. The Europeans are more nervous people because they have less control of their lives.

I'm afraid that we have destined our children to a poorer existence.
