    You mean like Gov Rick Perry who is in the process of having a bill passed that allows illegal immigrants to work in Texas

    facts? Which facts would those be exactly?

    Like the one i commented on from you?

    A minimum wage of 7.00 dollars is no different than a minimum wage of 50.00 dollars
    I suspect a first grader can tell you what is wrong with your "fact".

    I realize you are simply attacking me but if you go back and read your statement you will see that you lied. I have repeatedly stated that I feel that ALL people who earn income should pay federal income tax. So why do you lie saying I have no problem with it? As to supporting anyone in America exercising their rights of free speech - yup - thats just me being mom and apple pie patriotism again.

    your post confirms what I said. You support those who don't pay much taxes whining about those who pay lots of taxes

    remind me HOW I lied?

    I misrepresented nothing. I quoted his words exactly as he typed them. My first question directly goes to what he said. The second question was asked for a reason which will be uncovered later.

    I love the quote function! It makes it so easy to expose dishonesty.

Congresspeople want to get reelected and it’s only natural to keep your largest donors in mind when voting. This is not to say that they don’t have a free will and opinions of their own, just saying that money talks in many situations.

    I love the quote function too. Nothing wrong with either question that I asked. I just wanted to find out what his free will was when money spoke? You have a nice nite now, okay?

    He addressed that:

    "This is not to say that they don’t have a free will and opinions of their own, just saying that money talks in many situations."


    And you dishonestly ignored it with your question.

    You can have your opinion. It doesn't bother me.
