8. That's the thing - economics do not trump everything else

I come to the subject from the other side. When Bush tax cuts expire we'll be paying at least 10K more a year. I don't think in the scheme of things it is more important to keep that tax cut vs. helping folks in the 47% who are losing their jobs, homes, etc... I am willing to vote on moral principles rather than economics and that leads me to Obama against my own financial interest. Does that make sense?
