It's amazing how candidates say what the people want to hear. I'm curious to know the statistics on how many people now wish they'd voted differently.

When it comes down to it, Obama is a politician. Politicians always have their own agenda. Thanks for commenting, Skarlet! Best ~ fitmom
Thanks for commenting, LandmarkWealth! I agree with you that most people are clueless about these matters. Best ~ fitmom
There is also a whole industry built around the tax code and of course, all of the special interests that benefit from various tax provisions.
That's correct. The more complex it is the more the Lawyers, CPA's, Insurance companies and Financial Planners like myself benefit. It helps me, but I don't agree with it.
Thanks for commenting, brblog. I've actually met a good amount of people who voted for Obama in 08 and regretted it afterward and said they were definitely not voting for him again. I was surprised they were so forthcoming. Best ~ fitmom
Yes, I think that was the case with the 08 vs 12 election but I'm guessing that this time around, since people now know Obama and after a long and crazy republican primary, that most had a pretty firm commitment to one or the other.
I agree that most voters just base their decision on what the media feeds us. Thanks for commenting, LilaDaley! Best ~ fitmom
Like LandmarkWealth said, the tax code is very involved. There's no way that this stuff will only impact a small group. Thanks for commenting! Best ~ fitmom
I know what you're saying. I often wonder how much of the banter is just a game. I think many of them are probably buddies. Thanks for commenting! Best ~ fitmom
