Economics 101 is that tax incentives spur the economy. Obama has been floating the idea of giving tax incentives to businesses. This is another way of giving tax-cuts to the wealthy. It all depends on how you want to describe it. Tax cuts do not cost us anything because they allow investors and consumers to keep more of their own money thus they spend more. That means they feel free to buy those high dollar items they've been putting off. Or hire more workers because they're feeling good about the future. And what happens when more people are working? That's right....more people are paying taxes. The job losses we've experienced in the last year are a direct result of Obama policies...even the threat of which causes fear in the private sector. Enough to double unemployment, decreased productivity, and lower consumption. All of which has resulted in a recession. People are worried about the future. An administration that tells you that your family has to learn to expect less in the future tends to slow the transfer of cash in any economy. And because of that....the lack of exchanging money...less taxes are paid in the process. Less profit means less revenue. Getting even with the rich only assures that the Middle-class ends up paying more taxes eventually to make up for the loss in revenue. Raising taxes during a recession is a serious mistake. Obama is learning this....personally his actions up until now makes me think he's screwing up the economy on purpose....you can't blame me for thinking this after hearing over a year of rhetoric that would give any smart business owner the impression the government is out to ruin them.
