So Obama had a press conference on taxes and the economy today. Obama mentioned as one example, an example obviously used to bait the Republicans and see how they would respond, getting rid of a corporate jet tax break. By a lot of estimates, it equals to around a paltry 2-3 billion dollars. However, if you consider a lot of the things Republicans want to cut and of course are supposed to be much more fiscally conservative, it can add up to quite a bit if you take away several dozen goofy tax breaks that really in the end benefit an incredibly small few people let alone private businesses. So you would think, "Man the Republicans would have to at least say hey that sounds fair, lets talk about getting rid of this silly stuff." That wasn't their response at all. Instead, according to Eric Cantor's office they refused any kind of "tax increases" and added that and get this, "2 billion really isn't that much anyways." lol o rly?
So there you have it folks. I am 100% done listening to anything a mainstream Republican has to say when they can't even agree that an incredibly small fix to the tax code shouldn't be done.
