Obama needs to tell Clinton to go to hell, and start acting like a goddam Democrat. These DLC Dems are nothing but DINOs, we all know that. Continuing tax and spending cuts is the way to bring back the recession, as Europe is proving daily.

Idiot.

Well tax cuts have never created jobs..Why would it work now?

You se in fact tax increases create jobs..Why? Because as a business knows its taxes will go up they look for ways to cut taxes so they hire people or buy new equipment or invest in companies structure to gain more tax cuts....The GOP types say business will cut jobs if taxes go up..But that would be dumb since they if they cut jobs would tax cuts and end up paying double more.....

It's not just that we have the highest tax rates in the world. It's that no business or individual can plan because noone knows what the law would be. All busineses and many individuals make decisions based on tax codes. Look at john kerry hiding his $multi-million yacht in RI to avoid a few hundred thousand in MA state taxes. Joe biden's Delaware has no state corporate tax and hence it's where many corporations domicile. DE gets the tax revenues from the people's salaries, and sales and property taxes.

let ALL the tax cuts expire, as they were meant to.
let the chips fall where they may.
.
and start taking SS tax from the whole income, not just the first $110k
.
that'll straighten stuff out quick.

I have over 150 people working for me now and this is my 3rd company (sold other 2). Your post is non-sense and based on NOTHING but your emotional, spoonfed, predigested talking points!

The post from you alone proves you have NEVER owned a business with more than 20 employees.

Here are just a few costs that I can think of in regards to hiring a new employee:

• Social Security/FICA Taxes
• Medicare Taxes
• Federal Unemployment Taxes (FUTA)
• State Unemployment Taxes (SUTA)
• Workman's Compensation
• Added Space for worker
• Added equipment for worker
• Hiring cost – one of my companies is a recruiting firm. If you make $90k salary, the company that hires you pays me almost $25K.
• Training Cost for worker
• Health Insurance- According to a study conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation in 2009 on employer health benefits, the average employer contribution to employee health plans was $4,045 dollars for single coverage, and $9,860 dollars for family coverage.
• Retirement Savings Plans- The most well-known retirement savings plan is the 401k. Employers may opt to offer their employees matching contributions, or they may offer to just cover the administration costs.
• Life Insurance
• Long Term Disability Insurance
• Tuition Reimbursement
• And the list goes on and on and on and on and on and on…….. You have NO FUKN CLUE…..STFU

Would you like to hire some Miami Cuban ex-politicians?

"Cuban-Americans have “perfected [corruption in government] in many ways to a fine art.” That is not correct, however, because if corruption is done that well, it is unnoticed and subtle.
Corruption in Miami’s Cuban-American government has been crude, blatant and openly defiant"

Oh you crazy Anglo's with your mentality of obeying American laws , what charming characters you are.

All feeble lies. We don't have the "highest tax rates in the world," inability to plan is not the problem with the economy, and everyone will know what the tax rates would be if they were rolled back - the same as they were before Idiot Bush pushed them through in the first place.

ONLY by rolling back the tax cuts AND cutting bloated military spending will we reduce the deficit. That's obvious.

Carl Hiaasen, columnist and author with the Miami Herald, is another good long-time source for uncovering Cuban-American corruption in Florida. We truly made a mistake when we let Cubans into this country. Hispanic peoples in the Americas all grow up in systems featuring endemic corruption, and they're bringing that corruption to the U.S.- which already had its own problems.

Undoubtedly, Bill Clinton is having good time going around the country and contrasting the failed Obama tax policy that made American people the highest taxed people in the universe. First it was Bill Clinton who complimented Mitt Romney as a Sterling businessman who is more than ready to save American economy from the damage of trillions of dollars that were inflicted by the reckless and incompetent Obama. Now Bill Clinton claims that Obama’s new taxes could push American economy off the cliff to self destruction which will harm the Middle Class working Americans first. Bill Clinton proved that he is smarter than the foreign country Indonesia raised Obama where he lost his birth rights if he had any. Bill Clinton knew how to work with the GOP congress and Senate for the good of the American people while Obama keeps beating his head against the hard wall trying to further destroy the private sector with his Obama care scam that will further destroy the economy. Bill Clinton is supposed to help Obama but he is definitely helping Mitt Romney to defeat Obama regime of Maoist and Iranian born czars for once and for all.

Jeffy the Noisebot continues to pump out predigested far Right propaganda without interruption. Jeffy likes his Democrats to be the biggest DINOs possible, since he hates and fears anything that comes from 'the Left,' even though he doesn't know what that is.

Billy "THE STAIN" Clinton is acting just like a Vice President in campaign mode. So far he has the Biden 'foot in mouth syndrome'. Not because he is an idot. Because he is finally TELLING THE TRUTH.
Last week the impeached, disbarred former President was photographed in Monaco with a PORN STAR on each arm. Pure low-life as always, Billy Jeff.
