Don't the fools at the state house and the fed realize that every time they either come up with a new tax or raise the business taxes we already pay that we have to raise our prices to cover the increase. Naturally then we pass the tax on to the customer. So do all businesses. When the taxes eventually get to the point where we can no longer sell our products or services then we pack up and move our businesses to Taiwan or Korea. All business taxes are regressive and punish the consumer. Businesses don't just take the hit and live with it. We pass the misery on. I think there should be absolutly no business taxes at all. It's unfair to the consumer to tax business. Imagine how much less a gallon of gas would be if there were no business taxes attached to it. Would businesses be awash in profit? No more so than they would be anyway. The market adjusts to need and what the consumer is willing to pay. competition drives prices. Taxes drive prices up.

In the spirit of Obama I'm only going to charge the extra cost to my customers making over $250,000 no $200,000 no $150,000 no $100,000 no $50,000 per year.

Oh to heck with that I'll pass it on to all of them just like Obama.

Though I love to blame Democrats for all the ills of the nation going back to that socialist Roosevelt. republicans are just as guilty.

It's common sense. All businesses tabulate their expenses and it gets calculated into the selling price.

Believing raising taxes on the wealthy & businesses will not affect you makes as much sense as minimum wage.

Raise minimum wage and it trickles up. The gal making $7.50/hr. feels happy that she is making more than minimum wage. Raise the wage for those under her and she looks for a raise - after all she is better than minimum wage.

Gripes me to no end when I hear people whining about "big business" getting tax cuts. Why is it such a difficult concept to grasp that businesses have never paid one cent in taxes - the customers do.:bangin:
