Ok I got a question... if we have to give rich people and big business more tax cuts, because they are "job creators"... so my question is, you've had these tax cuts for at least 8 years now, some for 11 years, and where the <bleep> are the jobs????
George Bush gave you tax cuts in 2001, and more in 2003... you have had them all this time, but instead of creating any jobs, you've lost jobs!!!!! So give me this crap about tax cuts creating jobs... what are they going to do if we don't give them tax cuts, not create even more jobs????? And why should we let the rich and corporate jackals hold us hostage?
Tax cuts at the expense of the middle class does NOT create jobs... what creates jobs is increased demand for products and services... if a business needs more workers to keep up with demand, they will hire those workers, tax cuts or no. Handing money to businesses that have no increased demand for their products destroys jobs, because instead of trying to find a way to improve and make a product people want, they can rely on tax cuts and subsidies to make their profit.
To "fix the economy" (BTW, economies are not cars or engines, you can't "jump start" them) we need to increase demand for products, and this only happens when the middle class has money to spend. If you can't afford gas for your car, and food on the table, and health insurance and all the little things one MUST have to live today, you surely aren't going to be buying a house, a new car, or that big screen TV you fantasize about.
I know nobody here will bother to read this but oh well, at least I got it off my chest.
