    While many in this country were discouraged with the way our country has been run over the last 8 years. You just voted for a man who stated that many--or should I say "almost none" of the small businesse's in this country make over 250K".

    Well, it turns out that while Americans are ready to form a lynch mob & hang the master minds of deceit, the Hedge Funds managers & the corrupt Wall streeters.

    This new policy to hike taxes to astronomical levels- on anyone that earns over 250K. It appears that Obama forgot to mention that 80% of the over 250K people are honest hard-working small business owners. You know the "risk takers" of this country that also hire employees, make payroll, benefits, etc. In other words--"Small business owners, whom have nothing to do with Wall Street or Hedge fund managers."

    So we are to tax to all time new levels these people--which represent only 5% of this nation, while expecting them to give the rest of us (95% of us) a tax break, of which 40% pay no taxes what-so-ever. Add to this--these same people, the 5% are also expected to pay for all our medical insurance premiums. This all according to Barack Obama's plan. This is what I call FUZZY MATH.

    The Obama adminstration has in effect declared war on small business in this country. Still the largest employer in this country.

    And to those of you who bought into this garbage & voted for it--you now OWN IT.

    Clinton nearly wiped them out in the 1990s.

    BO will finish the job Bubba started with them.

    I guess this means Obama favors big corporations over the little guy. Everybody knew that, right?

    Yeah? So what is your point?

    Define "SMALL business" for us, otherwise the point of your post is meaningless.

    I get sick of how easily some of you people are mislead by the word games that are played on you.

    Bath Iron works is, according to the definition of the US government a SMALL BUSINESS.

    They make our freaking battle cruisers for crimminies sakes.


    So when most us say "small business", we think we mean the mom and pop single owner type businesses.

    But when the goverment defines "small business", their definitions of small are wildly different that what the average person thinks it means, and their definitions are entirely industry dependent

    This confusion when that word is bantered in politics about is NOT an accident.

    It is a contrived lie done by semantics

    The vast majority of small business owners don't have a personal income of $250,000 so this tax roll back won't hurt them at all.

    Actually, I would say you failed because most small businesses in the US are sub chapter S corps.
