    Don't count on that, douchebag. The bottom line is still the same. The Romney/Ryan tax plan screws everyone making less than $200,000/year. It's a middle-class clusterfuck.

    Consumers create them by creating demand. It's the middle class that drives the economy.

    As another poster put it;

    Do you really think that the Koch Brothers and Sheldon Adelson would be cutting massive checks to Romney if he was going to raise their taxes?

    Something to think about.

    :lol: try again, they make a lot of assumptions, that Romney has not committed ot or not

    ...if you actually compared them you'd see that but your masters voice and all that.

    Once the business is marketing to the consumer, yes, but most small businesses need to have the cash to start up to get to the market place. :eusa_boohoo: Of course once in business there's also profit margin. Raising taxes on businesses reduces such. Quite complex interaction.

    You're quite right as the middle class does drive the economy.
