Traveling for Thanksgiving to visit family is one of those great American traditions and often times it is a journey. Tax code: I am thankful for the United States of America as one of the finest protectors of freedom in the world, but what does Congress reduce taxes in a time when the government is nearly bankrupt? Economic growth will not be the solution if the government defaults and lowers the rating of the system itself. The United States has the best backing of any industrialized nation in the world and the solution is creating systems that remove loop holes and keep money in the country. Happy Holidays everyone.
