    The average small business owner clears about 45k.

    Small Business Owner Salary - CBsalary


    So many of the business owners on the lower side of that figure and who have children probably paid no net taxes last year. According to Romney they therefore have the victim mentality and want to be dependent on government.


    Is it any wonder you assholes lost? If I'm a small business owner struggling to get by on 30k or so, and Romney says I've got a government dependency problem and that I have a victim mentality - all the while whining and moaning about businessmen making 8 X my profit having to pay a tiny bit more in taxes - who do you think I'd have voted for?

    Remember this the next time you hear Michael Moore whining about how many US corporations don't pay taxes.

    OOhpoo, it's not nice to debunk rethug fantasies. They need them to help them get throught their long lonely days....and nights.

    Why everyone knows that ALL rethug small businessmen and women make at least 100 million a year.

    Why you think they are so bat shit crazy about defending their tax rates? A 4% increase in taxes on their 100 million a year, they could barely get by.

    Am I correct rethugs? Or what?

    Everyone with an income regardless of its source should have to pay income tax.

    And if we tax them even 0.1% more they will fire everyone.

    Because everyone knows that the way to increase your profits after a tax hike is to lower production!

    You should continue to base your beliefs on your emotions rather than factual evidence.

    I'm guessing you've never run a business.

    Most business owners aren't wealthy and a great deal of them struggle to put food on the dinner table just like the people that work for them. And if they didn't pay federal income tax last year - they are leeches according to the right.

    Because no one should receive special treatment under the law.

    You don't get a pass on gas taxes do you?
