Should the year end with a National Night of Anger and Outrage, a chance for Americans to show how they feel about the news coming from Washington? There are still three weeks to go before Congress and the White House misrepresent whatever groundbreaking compromise they cook up as part of a deferred decision on tax rates and spending cuts.
No matter what happens, politicians will always have our children’s future to fall back on. Kids are a time-honored secret weapon when budget reform battles resort to shaming the opposition into action, even though the strategy tends to fall apart when both sides rely on children to support their demands.
There is an enormous difference between the Middle America Capitol Hill lawmakers are fighting over and the lives many middle class Americans lead. Patronizing gibberish like the White House Protecting the Middle Class News¹ trumpets the importance of $2,000 to a middle class existence, $77.00 in our biweekly paychecks and a sign of the pity and contempt with which our federal overseers view us.
What do democracy in the Middle East, teachers, super PACS, our suffering middle class, and the conniving wealthy have in common? They have all been used by the Obama disinformation and government propaganda mill to manipulate public opinion. Are taxpayers paying the president to oversee the spread of disinformation and to ensure that Congress passes laws to turn White House myth into reality?
Do Democrats classify small companies by the ease with which their earnings can be turned into tax revenue by applying the Obama fair share principle? Explaining what happens when small businesses hire their 50th employee, this is how the Obamacare resource, HealthCare.gov, separates small companies from large companies:
You are generally considered a large business if you have more than 50 employees.¹
The Small Business Administration defines a small company a bit differently:
The Offce [sic] of Advocacy defines a small business as an independent business having fewer than 500 employees.²
The Republican Party was comfortable with the 500 employee benchmark in its Small Business Tax Cut Act of 2012, the 20% tax cut for small companies that met its demise in Harry Reid’s Senate.
