    I argued with Brett Guthrie (during our KET debate) on how Bush’s tax credit for the wealthiest should expire and it would not affect job growth or the economy. I explained it was simple math; for every $250,000 in income, it would only increase their tax’s about $7,900 and their arguments that it would cost an employer to lay off an employee didn’t add up. And I went further to explain that it did not bring us out of a recession as expected over the last ten years. Brett jumped out of his seat and went on to rant and exclaimed that it is what saved the airline industry in 2002. Brett may have spent over $960,000 (and they call him a conservative) compared to our $8,600, to pulverize me in that campaign, but I am proud of the points we made and how they are on the forefront of this election cycle.
    The republican leadership should be examined and exposed for their untruths and misleading propaganda that exploits those that of are of uninformed electorate in our commonwealth. All it takes is someone with some backbone!
