"GOP leaders, who were briefed by Obama at the White House before the speech, harshly criticized the president’s call for higher taxes on wealthier Americans.
"Any plan that starts with job-destroying tax hikes is a non-starter," said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. "Republicans are fighting for meaningful spending cuts and fighting against any tax increases on American small businesses.""
Wealthy Americans ≢ small business.
Taxing wealthy Americans doesn’t kill jobs because they either route money back into their own multi-billion dollar corporations or they buy items that have no direct impact on the economy. Grrr, I hope Obama doesn’t completely cave on this too.
Also, lol meaningful spending cuts. The public service agencies make up so little of the budget that it’s laughable. You know where we should cut the budget? $695,000,000,000
That’s how much money the military got in 2010. Federal educational spending?
That’s almost 15 times less. Something is seriously wrong here when we are willing to spend roughly 648.3 billion more on killing people than on educated them.
