^^^True, but think of it this way. Even the largest corporations are hurting right now. And some kind of government stimulus needs to happen. A tax break for the middle class will give them extra money to spend... that money goes back to the hands of the businesses, large and small. No tax cut means, that money isn't being spent in the economy. However, in order for the gov to continue with the normal gov spending and then adding to that spending with stimulus spending (like infrastructure building, ect...) they need money. But they just handed out tax cuts... where will they make up that money, well, the ones making millions and billions can afford it. So, tax them.
And you can't use the "Obama can be sneaky" argument. Not till he's actually done it WITHOUT good cause to do so.
I don't believe any money should be just handed to anybody for doing nothing. But a middle class tax cut is not that. You can't get a tax cut without paying taxes, and you're not paying taxes if you're not working.
But, like I said above, I'd LOVE to see power back to small business by the gov investing billions in to small business and an infrastructure that helps spur small business growth and start ups. If you're gonna build some stuff, then make sure it's build by small businesses, and local companies doin' the work for THEIR communities. Not some corporate office working something miles away.
