Do your homework!

In response to Ginny Feyes from Lowell. I said that if Gov. Mike Pence wanted to cut out all taxes for business he should stop giving our taxpayer money as a gift (subsidies) to Mitt Romney: $37 million and $48 million for horse racing every year. I never attacked their profits.

As for socialism, that means the service is paid for by all the people for all the people. Our country started with socialism from the very beginning. Our forefathers wanted us to be educated, so we offer free schooling and libraries. To keep us safe we have the police forces. After the insurance companies allowed people to die if they couldn't pay the premiums, we got the fire departments.

We Americans use and enjoy these services every day. It’s part of what makes this a great country.

Note: It never hurts to read through and/or look up things in dictionaries before attacking people.
