  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

Some people are like Slinkies... Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I'd give my left arm to be ambidextrous...

I'll put a $1,000 tax cut in the pockets of 95% of workers and their families, including 3 million folks here in Missouri.

I'll pay for my plan - by cutting wasteful spending, shutting corporate loopholes and tax havens, and rolling back the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans.

Married Jointly at 50,000 a year before the tax cuts were taxed $8,411.
 
Married Jointly at 50,000 a year after the tax cuts were taxed $6,721.
 
So, $1,690 - $1,000 = $690 tax increase.
 
Well Senator, I was born during the day but it wasn't yesterday. :jester:

This part was not in the transcript..............

Obama on Wednesday told a gymnasium full of people in Springfield, Mo., that McCain and President Bush will resort to scare tactics to maintain their hold on the White House because they have little else to offer voters.

"Nobody thinks that Bush and McCain have a real answer to the challenges we face. So what they're going to try to do is make you scared of me," Obama said. "You know, 'He's not patriotic enough, he's got a funny name,' you know, 'He doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.'"


Besides Obama playing the race card, He shows he is not to bright.

I know of only ONE president on Dollar Bills.

$50,000 a year does not qualify as the wealthiest Americans, so someone earning $50,000 still gets the break.

So, you are saying that I get to keep the 1,690 tax cut that Bush gave me PLUS the 1,000 dollar cut Barack is gonna give me. With Barack giving us free health care, no taxes on seniors under 50,000 a year, building new schools, roads, and bridges, world class education for every child, and a 4,000 dollar tax rebate for community service or national service. Wow, I will only have to pay 1,700 instead of 8,411 in taxes to the federal government oh happy day..........I can't believe he promised all of that in one speech.


The way I read it is he will rescind Bush's tax cuts 1,690 and give me 1,000 tax cut leaving me paying 690 more come tax time.

Hopefully we never find out who was right...................
