North carolina to tax parents if kids vote democrat?
At the moment North Carolina is straight Republican. However they don't forget how President Obama won that state by the slimmest of margins in 2008 and it was the result of the "youth" vote. Now to prevent that happening again there is a bill in a Republican controlled Congress to actually tax the parents of kids who vote from their college address.
First, and the obvious, is Republicans voting to IMPOSE a tax. But more importantly, they are doing so to punish the parents of kids who vote, who typically vote Democrat.
I've voted Republican and I've voted Democrat, but I am getting so tired of these tricks by the Republicans to simply try to prevent voting. Here's advice, how about presenting agendas that people WANT to follow. Stop with the obstructionism.
