    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Jeremy again.



    that evil rich guy....45% it should be 70%, he doesn't need to eat, he can work for $30 an hour and be fine...right?

    Oh and his state UE needs to go up......there are folks who need him to pay more unemployment taxes.

    Great story and dead accurate.

    For every teenager that thinks his parents is made of money, there are three liberals who thinks the company they work for is made of money.

    In the past few months we have done better at our company. But "better" is not what it used to be. In October we made as much money as we did Jan-September. However, October would have been a bad month compared to pre-recession.
    Taking another huge hit for higher taxes would be insanely stupid.

    The Libs don't understand that firmly in that $250-$750K (even up to 1 million) is the SUCCESSFUL small businesses that employee the majority of Americans!!!

    If it was up to libtards they would want to tax businesses on Gross Income!

    Well shoot, I tried.

    I guess the left isn't interested in this topic if you inject a little bit of the "real world".

    :dunno:

    I can't believe after all this time, some of you are STILL arguing that long-ago disproven point.

    PolitiFact | So-called wealthy are actually small business owners? The data is dubious
    If you don't believe that fact-checker, then here is just one Google page of reports by other economists saying the same thing.

    Only 2% of small businesses would be taxed in the over $250,000 bracket - Bing

    It is not just the poor that have been severly impacted by this economy. 93% of Americans have fallen on hard times.

    If those small business owners who are reeling in $250K-$1000K in TAXABLE INCOME/year can't kick down and begin hiring, then tax em!

    The only justification for allowing capitalists to exist is if they STIMULATE econ growth. If they won't then we can return them to the tax schedules of say 1965.

    Just ask Wall Street! The folks earning a living on "the street" sure feel like the last two years was a real kick in the nutz!
