AP News : LimaOhio.com how is this change? The natural come back is "only the wealthy, not the normal people", anyone who has an inkling of economic insight knows this isn't true. All Freddie Mac and Fannie May stuff aside, the real problem with the economy for the American family is the need for more jobs and higher wages to offset energy costs. It's pretty simple at the end of the day. Businesses expand and grow based on capital. Less capital=less growth, this is BASIC economics. By raising taxes that capital goes to the federal government and when it comes time to think about expanding, and creating more jobs, the capital is gone. End result is Obama's tax policy WILL hurt those making less then 250K, how do I know this for sure? I've lived it. My father doesn't make 250K/yr, not even close. But he does own a local insurance agency. We still haven't replaced some of our turnover in the last year, we don't have the capital. We're trying to do more with less in this troubled economy. Obama's tax increases on business will give us even less to work with, which means less jobs for the local community, less profits for the agency, which results in less income for my father who makes less then 250K/yr. But Obama/Biden still insist he's safe from tax increases, and so's the person who would have been highered had we enough capital to hire her. But it just doesn't play out that way. We've heard don't worry under Clinton, and it played out exactly the same way. So what's Biden want? Give more money to the government? You mean the two branches of it who combined only have the support of 1 in 3 Americans? Largely because they're fleecing us? No thanks Biden, you've seen enough of our money within the decades you've been in congress, and America has seen too little return on our investment. You don't get more, infact you're gonna get less. And John McCain isn't going to let you use it for earmarks anymore. Get your hand out of the cookie jar Biden, the kitchen's closed.
