Anyone in the Lafayette area have a mechanic they'd recommend? Preferably south side of town. My '06 F150 is due for some work like changing plugs, brake rotors and probably replacing the ac fan clutch (hopefully not the compressor) among other minor things.

The bill also increases the cap gains and dividends tax on $400k+ from 15 to 20 percent. That's a goddamn big increase and probably a more significant economic impact than just the 35 to 39.6% income tax increase. Say goodbye to a lot of future investment in this country if this passes. Most signi...
