How very patriotic of them....In Q / A format, here's the basic ECO101 our idiot-in chief doesn't have a grasp on...
Q) Who owns most businesses in this country?
A) The wealthy.
Q) What will happen if Obama forces wealthy people to "pay more taxes"?
A) Wealthy business owners will do virtually anything to protect GP margins, including permanent employee layoffs
(permanent employee layoffs = you & I)
The rich don't need government of, by, or for the people - they can just buy their own somewhere else.
But if they love America as much as they claim, they will INVEST IN IT, and I don't mean with their taxes (which they will actually be required to pay after their loopholes are closed, same as the rest of us) but with all that capital with which they've been resisting ACTUALLY CREATING JOBS.(Since that's what they claim to live for, right?)
Or, they can move to Switzerland, where the tax rates are much higher than here.....
Unless they prefer to take their money and run to the nearest third world country and plunder IT for a while. Hope the door leaves them with an incurable blister on the ass on their way out.
Just a thought.
