    “naked wealth envy”… Sounds sexy and dirty at the same time.

    Howie:

    When you admit that the stimulus saved us from economic depression, and that health care reform was a worthwhile endeavor that can be tweaked if and when needed.

    Fair enuf?

    Ha! The “stimulus” only stimulated further economic depression, or don’t you pay any attention to real data? And health care reform by the federal government is only bankrupting states and companies that then cannot keep or hire employees. It doesn’t need tweaking, you tweaker, it needs trashing (as in nullification).

    If taxation of wealthy people can somehow sort those whose wealth doesn’t fund R&D and business investment (hence employment) from those whose wealth is the backbone of a healthy economy, fine. I’m all for it. But that would mean celebrity wealth would be “redistributed”, and what career politician is going to back that? It would require courage and character, both missing from Obama’s CV.

    Small businesses have been called the economic drivers by Republicans.

    Facts show that the majority of small businesses are not in the top tax brackets and that repealing a scheduled END [by Republicans] to a tax break for a small minority (returning them to amounts that worked for our country economically) would not impact small businesses.

    Oh rats, and I was SO counting on that trickle-down next year.

    And that trickle down works so well. Like when you feed a horse all the oats it can eat, the sparrows that follow the horse are well fed.

    I’m reminded of the “Time” article on “poor little” Condoleezza Rice, taking her private piano and skating lessons, and sitting on the hood of her uncle’s Bentley. They also noted her youthful admittance to a college, where her dad happened to be Chancellor. She went forth as a Rumsfeld recruit, along with other “poor little ones” to become the Republican Party of today.

    It is something to think about with relation to whether they can relate to “the world”.

    Ahh, another one of these…conveniently ignore the fact that the expiring tax cuts will affect small business as well as middle-class Americans. But hey, if we point this out we will defeat our own argument, won’t we?

    “Ahh, another one of these…conveniently ignore the fact that the expiring tax cuts will affect small business as well as middle-class Americans.”

    • Wrong. http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2010/jul/27/stephen-hayes/so-called-wealthy-are-actually-small-business-owne/
    • Also http://www.factcheck.org/puncturing_a_republican_tax_fable.html

    The expiring tax cuts, set to expire by the Republicans because the move wasn’t good for the budget indefinitely was set to expire when they forced it through by reconciliation. Letting the cuts expire, a.k.a “returning them to a time when there was prosperity at all levels of the population” for the top tax bracket, would not affect the VAST majority of small-business owners.
