Taxes… Democrat Style
This would be a terrible move by the democrats. Just as when they threaten to raise corporate taxes, the Democrats have no understanding of economic issues whatsoever! The top earners are the business owner’s who own restaurants, salons, newspaper/magazine stores, liquor stores, computer stores, and the like. Not to mention the earners above them who invest money in businesses, have large shares in companies; buy yachts and homes, which all create jobs and wealth for people like me.
These people do not keep their money in their mattress or in a wall safe… they invest this money, they do R&D with it. They put it into the real-estate, the luxury items, which all give people jobs.
What happened when they (Democrats) put a luxury tax on stuff years ago was that a lot of people who make yachts went unemployed. And when the Democrats tax corporations, all the corporations do is raise the price of the item involved, so the cost then is transferred to the consumer. If the corporation doesn’t do that, often times they will move offshore or have a mass firing. All of this hurts the common family and the
Do the Democrats really believe that CEO will cut his 4-million dollar a year bonus if the taxes are raised? If they do, they are nuts! This corporation will move to another country, period. I don’t like the corporate ethic; they would sell their own kids if they were given a chance. But this has no bearing on keeping these businesses on our soil.

I was listening to radio the other day and a business owner called in and made the point that when the Democrats put the “luxury excise tax” into the mix, he stopped matching 50% of his employees 401k investing and dropped it to 20%. AGAIN! DO YOU THINK THESE
The oil companies make about 8-to-10 cents profit on a gallon of gas. Between the federal gov. and state govs. There is a 50-to-60 cent tax on it. And the democrats want to raise taxes on gas even more? That is crazy! Maybe these liberal law makers stop the 18-plus different gasoline formulas that are mandated by states thinking they are somehow “saving the environment.” That one fact alone, e.g. – having the same formula for the whole country, would almost cover the federal and state taxes in cost.
The democrats have no idea what they are doing… unless they are really as socialist as Hillary says she is and the ultimate goal is to hurt the corporate and mom-and-pop businesses in order to legislate more left leaning agendas.
Hillary has said she want to leave the family unit and go to the proverbial “village” unit! It didn’t work in
