Response to Taxes

 

I'm not such a "economic illeterate" Brandon. Years ago I was involved in running a business- and I did the bookkeeping and taxes for a time- and I know that the owner of a business only pays tax on NET INCOME AFTER all business expenses are deducted. And you know what? Employee salaries are a deductible business expense- which employers DO NOT PAY TAXES ON! which is why all this right-wing rhetoric about taxes hurting employment is bullshit.

And as for the rich keeping their money in "tax sheltered investments"- best reason I know to do away with such things and get that money back into the economy spreading the wealth around.
