    The Bush Tax cut should be allowed to expire, but, those who earn over $200,000 per year ought to receive a dollar for dollar tax credit for each employee they hire, as well as a tax dediction for the health care insurance they provide.
    If those who earn $200,000 per year don't hire anyone, fuck them!
    What say you echo chamber?

    Stupid idea.

    Businesses aren't going to trust that such tax credits are permanent; at some point, they would have to fully absorb the costs of the employees. This is a bait and switch maneuver which won't fool anyone competent enough to run a successful business.

    Businesses hire when they see real opportunities based upon increasing demand. Big Government / parasite types view hiring as just spending that can be subsidized by someone else.

    Read slowly and very carefully. The Republican argument for extending the Bush Tax cuts is premised by the 'fact' (platitude) that those who earn $200,000 per year create jobs. Those who do, and can prove that they do (by hiring records) ought to get a tax credit.
    Do I need to post this in all caps or in bold type for your to understand?
    Those who don't, should pay their fair share of taxes. Fair share can be debated on another thread.

    Clearly you don't understand rational thinking or behavior.

    I like the sentiment, but am dubious about the tactic.

    What we really need is a fundamental reorganization of our economy beginning with eliminating the federal reserve.

    Since that won't happen anything we do is pretty much doomed to ultimately fail.

    But the way our economy is structured, esp the ways in which government shares domain with the economy is fully and desperately dysfunctional.

    Of course the full employment of total war would revive our economy without our having to endure the hardships involved in truly reforming our economy.

    nobody does.

    Humans are just irrational, instinctively driven apes whose primary intellectual accomplishment is self deception.

    That certainly explains the people who voted for Obama, but there are others of us capable of cognitive thought and logic.

    Even in all caps and bold type you wouldn't understand Zander. I'm not a 'kid', but your use of pejoratives and condesending language proves you're an asshole. Not understanding the post proves too that you qualify as a stupid asshole.

    no insult intended, but like I said, self deception. ^^^

    Cognitive thought and rationalization are servants of our selfish genes.

    logic is hugely over rated.
