Your tax dollars at work in Europe

October 26, 2011 

Of course we are going to send our money over to Europe. Their viewpoint is consistent with our socialist president and his fellow Democrats. Go over and spend some time in Europe to see if you feel they are worthy of our tax dollars.

Take Portugal for instance: A 35-hour work week. Extra check for summer holiday. Extra check for Christmas holiday. Free medical care (no copay) and companion paid for if you have to go away for treatment. Subsidy for each child you have until 18, rich or poor. College paid for. Five weeks' vacation after working one year. Unbelievable number of holidays. Three years' guaranteed unemployment if you work six months. Half your business paid for. Sweet deal. They think we're stupid and we prove it over and over by sending our money over there.
