    prove that "small biz's with 500ish employees are no longer paying taxes based on personal income?

    Try it this way: you claimed that they were paying S-corp (private income) tax. Prove that for us.

    Lol...that's because the TMR is a small portion of total tax revenues...and because the portion of people impacted my the TMR - at any level - grows every year.

    Nice job at totally botching reading comprehension. You missed the point completely, but that's not surprising.

    He's already proven he has trouble with reading comprehension, it shouldn't be a surprise he can't even bother to figure out who said what.

    I need to remind myself that when I come to this site, I'm often trying to have conversations with people who just aren't educated or forced to use their brain for any type of critical thinking. I need to dumb down what I'm saying so they can keep up with the conversation.

    Hmm.

    Let the Bush tax cuts expire.

    Let capital gains go to the highest in the world.

    Wonder if that will convince companies to hire and expand??

    The Govt will get more money but it sure won't be helping the economy or job creation.

    Simple really. The proof will be in the putting and 2012 will look like the Wild Wild West.

    Funny, but do you recall the massive growth in the 90s? Last I recall, it wasn't the Bush tax rates back then...

    And so it goes, let the whining from the right begin.....


    "One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native- born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and unskilled. These groups have resented one another and warred against one another with such vehemence and violence as to obscure their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country." Howard Zinn 'APHOTUS'


    "Democracies have great rational and imaginative powers. They also are prone to some serious flaws in reasoning, to parochialism, haste, sloppiness, selfishness, narrowness of the spirit. Education based mainly on profitability in the global market magnifies these deficiencies, producing a greedy obtuseness and a technically trained docility that threaten the very life of democracy itself, and that certainly impede the creation of a decent world culture." Martha Nussbaum

    YES, that was because of the dot.com artificial growth. It BURST also causing a recession!

    You do realize the reckless house practices that lead to the mortgage crisis were started during Clinton years, he was a direct beneficiary of the artificial housing boom!

    But I love how you will give Clinton all the credit in the world for a great economy, but during the Bush years the economy grew and unemployment was low, until the mortgage bubble burst that is!
