    Get your reps to approve this:

    I would so give raises and buy more equipment if this passes.

    I am SO tired of this tax cut for person or group X while person or group Y harbors more of the burden thing.. this posturing and pandering is why we got in trouble in the first place

    Yes.. it sounds good, but it basically comes down to the government picking winners and losers in all aspects of the game.. and that is not the job of government

    Plain to see that Ravi doesn't know diddly-poo about bidness.

    People don't hire new employees because they get some piddling tax credit...They hire because they have more customers.

    Why not just ask small businesses what they need and want?

    Oh wait. You don't want to hear the answer.

    LOL

    But you'd still support it anyway.

    No.. I think it has been pretty clear what I support in terms of taxation... and all other ways are simply a manner of pandering and power grabs.. regardless of the party doing it or the group receiving the 'breaks'

    I am SO tired of this lets give tax cuts across the board and hope some trickles down as jobs

    How about you earn a tax cut AFTER you have created jobs?
