Use tax dol­lars to take care of our cit­i­zens first

The Maui News - - OPINION -

Do you want your tax dol­lars to go to the car­a­van of 7,000 ?

I don’t. Let me tell you where I want my tax dol­lars to go. There is a de­light­ful Hawai­ian girl who works full time, left col­lege to raise her sib­lings and her 2-year-old son, gives back to the com­mu­nity by work­ing to keep the Hawai­ian tra­di­tions alive. She ap­plied for as­sis­tance for child care. Ap­plied twice and turned down twice. Need­less to say, we don’t have the money be­cause we are go­ing to give it to peo­ple forc­ing them­selves into our coun­try.

Now for trans­parency, I am not Hawai­ian but Ir­ish Catholic. I would be proud to be Hawai­ian, though. I am not a rag­ing con­ser­va­tive. In fact, I am a Dem now. My Ir­ish back­ground taught that you take care of your own first. If we have ex­tra tax dol­lars, put it into our schools. Cre­ate safe havens for abused women to go with their chil­dren and of course their dogs. Give it to the Hu­mane So­ci­ety. So many good causes can use our tax dol­lar.
