Absolutely nobody making less than $400K would see a tax increase - right? Look at your next paycheck and trust Obama.

Why do film producers need tax breaks? Oh, yeah, they are the propaganda machine for the left. Just look at the film Lincoln. Half truths and propaganda about the emancipation proclamation and it's "effect" on the American civil war.

Welcome to the realities of Class Warfare. Don't just blame Obama, tax law is made by Congress. Complicity? you bet!

So they need tax revenue but they 76 Billion in potential revenue on the table. And yet it's all about the individual pay more or " their fair share ".

But this is business as usual when you have companies like Goldman Sachs and GE already paying 1 to 0 percent in taxes.

Will these tax breaks really lead to jobs and more tax paying employees. There is a write off for retailers to write off improvements more quickly yet since the crash alot of these companies have closed stores/down sized loosing jobs. So if they aren't even shifting their tax obligations to employees out on the economy why are they giving the corporate whores these tax breaks?
