    Rising unemployment taxes could hinder hiring

    Here's some more bad news... as if we really needed any more.


    Rising unemployment taxes could hinder hiring
    By CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER,
    AP Economics Writer
    Sun Nov 22, 2009

    WASHINGTON As if small businesses needed another reason not to hire, consider their latest financial burden: The cost of rising unemployment itself.

    Employers already are squeezed by tight credit, rising health care costs, wary consumers and a higher minimum wage. Now, the surging jobless rate is imposing another cost. It's forcing higher state taxes on companies to pay for unemployment insurance claims.

    Some employers say the extra costs make them less likely to hire. That could be a worrisome sign for the economic recovery, because small businesses create about 60 percent of new jobs. Other employers say they'll cut or freeze pay.

    The Government wishes to destroy the 97% of the economy that is small business and then tax the Evil 3% that have all the money. Makes sense to me! Ahhhh, iddn't life great?!

    BTW, 97% of the economy is not small business....
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Now, who here thought that these jake-leg Libbos that are running the show really intended on doing anything that would be healthy for the job market? Be honest!

    Making more poor people is in their best interest.

    Sorry, it was 99.7% in 2006 (Yes I know before most of the **** hit the fan), and I am looking at the Government's Office of Small Business Advocacy for the current figure.

    The government has no desire to destroy the economy.
    Why would it, anyways?
    Nobody wins anything from that.

    Please source the statistical manipulation used to derive this obscene figure....
