The "modern" GOP is made up of mostly assholes and stupid people. The claim that any revenue increases will prevent the rich from hiring is a bald faced lie. I challenge anyone to produce any factual data that shows that the Bush tax cuts produced ONE job. I challenge anyone to produce a list of companies that have pledged to hire x number of employees based on their current tax breaks. I challenge anyone to produce a list of wealthy people in the USA that have pledged to start new companies with the benefits of their recent tax breaks. It won't happen...because it is all lies. Your thoughts....and proof I am wrong if you disagree.
