From Washington Post, July 15th:
“Republicans criticized the surtax as a job-killing tax increase that would fall disproportionately on small businesses, whose owners often report earnings on their personal tax returns. “You can’t tax the job creators and expect them to create jobs,” said House Minority Leader John A. Boehner (Ohio).”
Oh, really? Hmmm. I would say that if a small business owner is putting all of that on their personal taxes, they need to find a new accountant. Seriously.
Not only that. If they really are raking in that much money, it seems that they could afford to share a bit more with their employees, in the form of health insurance.
