Last quote by Bill Clinton

People who went and sacrificed and thought it was right, then came home to a culture that said it was wrong. People who opposed the war – though most of us still think we were right – we were World War II babies. We wanted to serve our country; we wanted to be part of patriotic wars; we wanted to believe in sacrifice. We paid quite a price as a generation for the impact Vietnam had on the country.feedback

The people that are getting killed in this deal are small business people and individuals who make just a little too much to get any of these subsidies. Why?
