    It's refreshing to hear economic sanity from a rich person.

    In other words, sanity equates to him agreeing with your view of economic, whether it's an accurate portrayal or not.

    Yeah, enough money to pay for business licenses, tax use licenses, liquor licenses, food service licenses, rents or purchases of store fronts, vendors and purveyors, employees, accountants, lawyers, etcetera, before opening their doors to serve one single customer...er...I mean "consumer". :rolleyes:

    I think we should tax everyone over 250k a 90% unavoidable tax rate... Then we can take that money, start new programs in HC, Education and whatever else sounds "smart" even though at that 90% tax rate the revenue can't pay for the new programs. Then we add that deficit new spending to the other deficit spending and blame Austarity.... Samll Government and anything but the problem.

    It is amazing what it takes just to get the doors open. When you write up a business plan you really see just how much Government slows down, kills and costs someone starting a business. Of course Business owners must pay these high taxes/fees because without them we would still be running a massive deficit seeing we don't even come close to taxing enough to pay for what we currently have.

    Someday we will have to cut, but that will be after a very long a hard depression... Oddly we might be in the beginning phase of that depression.

    The only time poor people ever create jobs, it involves taxpayers' money.
