    That spending should not have happened in the first place. Unfortunately the American public was unable to overcome it's pubic education and voted in a socialist.

    The tax cuts should be made permanent while at the same time excessive spending, such as Obama'Care, complexity abandoned and forever forgotten about.

    There are plenty of small businesses that make way more than 250,000 a year.

    The private sector is contracting due to declining demand. They are laying off, closing plants, outsourcing and cutting costs. The problem is not with production capacity for which we have plenty, it is with demand. Companies do not need more capital for expansion.

    So that makes it right for the govt to confiscate it?

    No, but cutting taxes for the middle class would stimulate demand and perhaps lead to companies calling back employees.
    Companies do not need to expand at this time. That argument is ridiculous.
    I heard Palin make it a few days ago. She said tax cuts for big business would allow them to hire and expand. She didn't realize they were cutting back and laying off due to declining demand. They have plenty of capacity.

    Lots of people that make over 250k don't do any hiring. They just collect their bonuses that us taxpayers made possible.
