    And if they would have used another state instead? What was it? North Dakota? What conclusions would we then come up with?

    Yes, I know. And it wasn't the only effort. But do try to hear what I'm saying.

    None of the other articles use Florida. All did studies and came to the same conclusion. They can find no evidence tax cuts create jobs. I think I gave you six or seven articles, and told you there was even more. Florida was only mentioned because that one article was in dealing with an issue in Florida.

    I do hear what you were saying, but I wholly disagree.
    Credit was actually pretty common in the 1800's,however, credit reporting nationwide was not.

    The problem was, that some underwriters and other people involved in the credit keeping and granting market used arbitrary discrimination, that the government outlawed.
    It was an unintended side effect, that people would be granted more credit than they should of used.

    It's not a mass conspiracy.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I know exactly what you said and this just verifies that I was correct so again why not quit dodging and give a straight answer

    So you think providing basic necessities to American citizens is an effort to make them equal? BTW I am still waiting for you to explain why you should not pay more when you use facilities and laws supported by all tax payers.

    I was around in the 80's.

    Nor do I claim a mass conspiracy, exactly. Only that it was part of their thinking. They always concern themselves with how to increase business and keep people working, and I would bet there were lobbists right there, pushing, and knowing it would increase sales.

    Your examples showed it did. Every state outside of one had a lower unemployment rate than those with higher taxes.

    This actually happened in 1970, at least with the FCRA.
    Reading the intent of the legislation, would not have one necessarily believe that credit standards would be loosened for individuals, but that's generally what happened, in my opinion.

    Well, I was around then as well.

    Wouldn't they? It allows correction, which allows a second bite, which would make more people eligiable, and likely hide some issues.

    Still, our problems are not just related to the 70's or the 80's. And every effort has been made to make sure people had access to credit, even if it is rento own, and real ripoff of the poorer folks in our country.

    I cannot help it if you want to derail the direction I was taking the thread and you cannot understand what I was saying.

    I don't use anything more than you do but I suspect I pay more taxes a month than you do in several years
