    I have been thinking about this for quite some time. So I want someone who thinks it's a good thing to raise taxes on those who create jobs (the wealthy). What exactly do you think obama wants to do with the money? Give more money to the super poor? Increase payouts to the welfare crowd? None of that actually creates anything but more of an entitlement generation. It actually kills the real American dream for those who want to be rich and have money. It kills any type of a dream that a person can actually achieve home ownership they can afford and things they may want.

    Here's the cold hard truth giving to the poor just makes more poor, when you take from those who have you're actually killing the American dream. Poor people do not hire people to work for them The wealthy do.

    I think it's obama's goal not to create anything but equality in the poor house.

    It causes unemployment by taking money from the job creators, and giving it to politicians who simply redirect it to their political clients, most of whom are drones of one species or another who produce nothing of value for the country.

    The wealthy are the job creators . This is why they are not hiring due to Obamacare and now the threat of new taxes. If I was a business owner in these times I would not be hiring for fear if I did I could lose my business due to these new laws and new taxes and other expenses.

    OK but this thread was posted to those who think raising taxes is a good thing I would like to hear from them.

    So far I agree with both you and Patrick.

    Uncertainty from the government will as always make those who have money take it some where else.
    Why is it that some of the highest taxed states are losing jobs to States who aren't as high?

    We need the money to create more of these wonderful shovel-ready jobs.
