    I'm a small business owner. I have no employees. And I certainly am not a millionaire.

    Yeah...I know a guy like that. He calls it "self employed" but basically does automotive mechanics himself. He gives a discount if you pay him in cash, tosses the invoice, puts the cash in a big, antiquated Mosler safe and never pays a penny of taxes that he isn't forced to. A real American.

    The average income for a small business owner was right around $100k last I looked.

    No it's a liberal lie. Small business range from 1 employee to 500 employees. Over 60% of Americans are employed by small business. If you take all the small business together then it's a small amount of small business owner that are in the higher tax bracket. HOWEVER, if you take the majority of SUCCESSFUL small business owner. The ones that hirer the MAJORITY of high paying employees, they are CLEARLY in the higher tax bracket! So you raise tax on people making over $250K then you are raising taxes on the SUCCESSFUL small business owners!

    The ones that don't employ anyone, aren't in the hirer tax bracket!

    So, as we have seen, the talking-point "job creators" is code for their paymasters.
