    Why would a liberal allow any private industry to keep more of what they earn as they don't spend it right according to liberals and after all those evil corporations just hire people?

    Please explain how that works..... Do you honestly believe we have a recession because the government is in the way? If so, what specific things should happen to end the recesiion?

    It's like the fundamental truth that market economies boom and bust stopped existing.

    How about answering the question, how long should the taxpayer fund people who are unemployed?

    The government has created uncertainty in the private sector, with new tax laws and new money robbing legislation. This needs to end and the legislation that has been passed, so far, needs to be repealed.

    yeah as long as one person needs something its wrong for the top 2% to have more money?

    where do you get the idea that existing within a certain distance of me justifies me having to pay for what you think you need?

    If someone is unemployed I don't have a duty to constantly fund his existence.

    I cannot answer that but the worst possible choice is blaming the rich and calling for more tax hikes on them

    You are right, the rich have suffered enough.

    Sorry, tax policies are no better than a tertiary consideration in a business investment decision..... If the demand is there, the investment is made. A slow economy means no demand. Capital sits on the sidelines as long as doubts about demand are high.

    I am a small business owner. I made a big bet in this economy solely on the perception that there is a demand for my service. Taxes are completely irrelevant at this stage of my investment.
