Doubtful that more than 20% of the residents are full time. Misleading but happy to take the Title to Miami.

Probably the most polluting per capita as well based upon those dirty diesel ferries.

Don’t forget about corporate welfare in the form of gov’t subsidies and tax breaks.

Not really, they will do the minimum, and if you can’t pay they will kid you out into the streets without receiving the best care possible (tests, etc.).

Her top donors will probably come from places like Fisher Island, Palm Beach, etc. Liberal elites donate their way out of paying taxes. Do you believe Warren pays her fair share?

Yeah, and Trump did his part when he gave tax cuts to the wealthy.

The jobs act gave cuts to everybody, especially corporations, who re-patriated hundreds of millions that stimulated the economy.
Much of the reason the DJIA is up 30% since Trump was elected.

The Obama answer was to borrow money for the next generations to deal with. Trumps plan was to incentivize Corporations to bring their money back.

Under Trump:

“U.S. National Debt Hits Record $22 Trillion Federal deficits are now expected to average $1.2 trillion, or 4.4 percent of gross domestic product — far higher than the average over the past 50 years.”

The Stimulus Package Bill implemented by President Obama and the Democrats not only stopped the hemorrhage of jobs this country was experiencing under Bush and the Republicans, it also reversed the downward slide the U.S. economy was and in sent it in an upward jobs spiral that this nation witnessed under the leadership of Obama for the last six years of his presidency. Trump slid into the Oval Office without having to face a faltering economy or national emergency.
