People spend money when they feel it is necessary. Businesses hire more employees when there is a need for those employees. The decision isn't based on tax rates.

So you don't think tax rate has any correlation to profit/loss?

Maybe take a course in small business management.

You know you only get taxed on profits, right?
5/28/2012 6:03 PM
I'm well aware of tax laws.

Then you should also know that there is no such thing as the confidence fairy. There is no magic tax rate or debt level that inspires confidence to spend without demand.

I've ran a small business since 1997.    I have an idea of how we spend/hire since I've lived, and somehow survived, thur two "rough" times.

Good. Then you know that it's demand that drives hiring/investment and not government debt and income tax rates.

Mike, maybe you should hire jrd to help you run your business since he seems to know so much about how things work.

I would except I don't have enough confidence in the current economy to put another employee on payroll.
5/29/2012 9:39 AM
Or, in reality, there isn't enough business to make another employee necessary.
5/29/2012 9:53 AM
Just not interested in paying more taxes. 
5/29/2012 9:56 AM
I don't blame you. We should not raise taxes right now on anyone, rich or poor.
