Re: Fw: Small Business Bill Passes Senate
Miki, you forget that these billionaires don't have an income, in many cases.
These billionaires often pay less taxes than you or I.
If you really want to play class envy, and I'll join you on this one, then let's confiscate half these billionaires money each year, they can afford it, right? They don't pay taxes because they don't have an income, they already stole their money off of the backs of the middle class.
Including George Soros and Bill Gates. Soros donates big gobs of money to every liberal think tank and to Democrats every year.
Did you know that George Soros is a Hungarian who, as a teen, worked with the Nazis to take the property of other Jews (he was a Jew as well). He was interviewed on 60 minutes, and admitted it: "if not me then it would have happened anyway with someone else."
He's despicable. Not so much for a mistake he made when he was a teenager, but for the lack of any contrition whatsoever for what the Nazis did to the Jews, and for being an unapologistic part of it. I heard that interview myself.
Lately, he's been gaining wealth with the help of Obama, who he supported financially. Soros bought lots of Brazil's Petrobras oil stock, just before Obama put our own gulf oil drilling out of commission, twice. Very strange coincidence, wouldn't you say? Petrobras has just recently started ramping up their own off shore oil drilling.
Yes, I envy not so much the wealth of Soros, but the favors he gains from the Democrats for his campaign money.
Discontinue tax breaks as I mentioned before…to the 1-2% billionaires in the country and tax breaks for those over 250k people you claim are small businesses is not an issue.
Not only is he lying about the Republicans, but he fails to understand that this measure is only a short term fix. Small business NEEDS a permanent tax break. His bill will not work. It will not create jobs because it does not give the INCOME tax breaks that small business owners need (they declare as individuals who make over $250,000).
His bill doesn't give an income tax cut, it's a capital gain cut that doesn't apply to small business (it does to larger businesses, but his subject is small business).
He know all this, yet he lies about Republicans by saying:
It would not have passed at all if not for a couple of Republicans who put help for small business and workers ahead of partisan politics.
The Republicans DO INDEED have concern for small business, a REAL CONCERN, not a phony short term bill. The Republicans want to freeze the Bush Tax cuts, which, if that happened would spur an instant recovery in the economy AND in jobs.
I'd like to see our esteemed Senator Casey debate this issue with a fiscal conservative.

Subject: Small Business Bill Passes Senate
If you are having trouble viewing this message, you can view the message online.
I have heard from small business owners all across Pennsylvania about their struggles in this economy to grow and to obtain capital. If businesses can't grow, they can't hire. The legislation the Senate passed today will give small businesses $12 billion in tax cuts, provide $30 billion to community banks to help provide access to capital for small businesses and increase SBA loan limits. This is needed help for communities in Pennsylvania and the economy.
The legislation includes an estimated $12 billion in tax cuts that would help small businesses hire more workers. This bill would also create a $30 billion lending fund, which would provide working capital to small banks. It is estimated that community banks would be able to use this fund to leverage up to $300 billion in loans to small businesses. The lending fund is estimated to reduce the federal deficit by $1.1 billion over 10 years.
It is unfortunate that some people in Washington don't share the same sense of urgency in delivering help to small businesses. This bill should have been passed months ago. It would not have passed at all if not for a couple of Republicans who put help for small business and workers ahead of partisan politics. However, I will keep fighting for this bill and any other legislation that will help grow our economy, create jobs and reduce the deficit, and I urge the House to act fast and send this bill to the President for signature.
