  •  Here's why you are wrong (0+ / 0-)

    My mother supported her parents.  She was their sole support.  Do you honestly think that a tax break for her to buy a house or a car would have helped her? Here's the short answer - it would not.

    How about if your mother, her parents and everybody else in the town got good jobs at high wages building cars and houses because "wealthy" people were buying them?

    Would that have been a good thing or not?

    It is not about cars and houses. It is about jobs and wages versus unemployment and destitution.

    Seems like a no-brainer to me.
