The wealthy people are our employers, they create jobs. The more revenue the goverment takes from employers, the less jobs they can create.
The government is the problem not the solution
MMMM! That be some good kool-aid!
That is lumping the rotten apples in with the good. It is more complicated than that.
The Banksters and International Corporate cartels are intent on screwing us not employing us.. See my
for an example of the latest screw job.
Increasingly our jobs are come from the "little guys" - small business. Small firms employ just over half the private sector employees, produced
64 percent of net new jobs over the past 15 years, produced 30.2 percent in dollar value of exports and produce 13 times more patents per employee
than large firms. link
Who are the small business people??? Your neighbors with a bit of money saved up.
Often, they are like me. They hit their forties and became "Too Expensive"
and were replaced by younger/foreign employees. Once six
months passes without finding a new job they are considered "Unemployable"
by the big corporations. (Discrimination laws are
different for the older worker and are not worth the paper they are written on - Employment law 101)
At this point older workers can either try finding a job with a small firm or start a small business.
To further complicate matters Tax Code changes were made in the nineties to "Protect the contract worker" In reality this shut the door in the face
of one man consulting firms. (Hubby) Now Kelly temp, third largest US employer, provides the contracting services and rakes at least two thirds or
more of the compensation off the top. Consultants who had earned $60 to $100 an hour in the early nineties suddenly find they can now get only $20 to
$30 an hour AND get no deductions they can write off their taxes because they are "employees" not contractors. Today companies DARE NOT hire them
except through a Temp service like Kelly. (plenty of experience)
Go to a large flea market some time. I bet you will find the American sellers are mostly over 45 years of age. Talk to them and you will find they
are out of work engineers and other white color workers with college degrees.
THIS IS THE GROUP targeted for an increase in tax. Not the wealthy who hide their money in trusts and foundations and not the international
corporations who use accounting games to transfer profits to a tax friendly country like Mexico.
It is the older two income white collar workers just before they get the boot!
Did you really think the Corporate/Banker controlled Congress would allow laws that increase THEIR taxes????
