Im convinced with the removal of the student loan interest deduction, that’s going to be the next catalyst. I think a ton a young people just won’t be able to afford it and will just be walking away from many of them even with the hits to their credit history and burden they will continue to carry since bankruptcy doesn’t clear these.

 

 

I'm concerned about this too, although I'm afraid it will happen even if they don't take away the deduction. This will make it much worse though. What we should be doing is finding away to forgive part of this debt for service. Millennials and those coming after are under so much financial stress, it's insane to make it harder for them.

 

This tax plan actual has a deduction for private planes while taking away deductions for teachers and adoptive parents. I'm so disgusted right now by our so called leaders.

The elimination of deductions for adopted parents is to curb foreign adoptions.

The update comes amid ongoing rumors that Justice Anthony Kennedy, 81, who has served on the court for more than 20 years, is considering retirement.

 

A potential announcement by Kennedy could come after Thanksgiving, according to Fox News’ John Roberts in his report on “Shepard Smith Reporting.”

I'd put Ohio politics up against any southern state for the sheer cracktasticness of our elections.

 

Yes, we've had our share of nutty politicians over the years...Trafficant, Kucinich, and lest we forget Mayor Perk:
