http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704113504575264802756326086.html Looks like we're finding out what's in the bill a la Bella Pelosi So what will small businesses do? They will hire less people so as to keep costs down. Owners will weigh very carefully how or if they will expand or they might just decide that they will maintain only a small enough operation to secure their financial needs. So once again labor and big business get a pass and small business is stuck with the tab. i seem to remember telling you idiots who support this abomination that very thing but you didn't believe me. So now every business has to send a 1099 not only to contractors paid over $600 a year but to the telephone company, the electric company, the oil company, any and all vendors, hell I'll even have to 1099 the US Post office. We will be drowned in a morass of government paperwork. Wait until you people who don't own businesses have to start issuing 1099s to everyone you pay more then $600 a year to. And for what? To grow the government even more. The IRS will have to be expanded even more to handle the influx of paperwork. Just in my small business with 10 employees and the business we do will mean I have to generate 75-100 1099s a year instead of the 2 or 3 that I do now. Tell me what else will you allow the government to mandate because if this abomination is not overturned there will be more and more mandates placed on us for our own good , of course.
