Setting animal cruelty arguments aside.... Like so many other Countable members have stated, this is another tax break that only benefits the incredibly rich. My ability to access healthcare is in jeopardy because I have a pre-existing condition and the 1% is getting another tax break on a hobby? It's not a need. It's a hobby...and it's a very cruel one once you look into it. Don't believe me? Do some research from reputable sources (not horse racing magazine) such as a university study or independent research group report. Some sources show who funded the project/report so look for that. I guarantee you will be horrified at what is happening to these incredible animals.
