the ones with money are the only ones that will restart this economy, but only if they have assets in order reinvest in their and other companies to do this. the rich as they put it are already paying more than 50% of their income in taxes as it is and then you throw in all of the other local taxes that hit you at the end of the year and it gets closer to 68%. so NO to more taxes on the businesses and the so called rich. You want more jobs in the U.S. then give all of the overseas companies 12 months tax free to bring their money back home and invest ALL of it in our economy and then the federal gov't say I am sorry for running you out of your own country and we will promise to make it more friendlier to do business in OUR country.

Generla Electric Corp. paid not one copper penny of Federal Income Tax in 2009. How much lower can you go than zero? GE took the money it saved in U.S. Taxes and spent it in China instead of hiring more people in the U.S. like the Republicans said they would. The GOP lied to us again. Oh well, what's new about that? GE spent $2 billion on new offices and X-Ray plants in China. Doggone lying Republicans....

Cut pay and benefits for the persons who signed up and went through elections seeking privilege of leading our country. No free ride or bonus for failed policy and wasteful spending!
