Obama's Health Care Plan

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. 

A few gold stars for me:  When I had my business, my personal income was a miniscule fraction of that amount, and there was no fancy accounting, either.  (Our accountant turned out to be a crook, and eventually ended up in prison, but he rather ignored our business early on because he could see that there wasn’t anything he could skim off.)  And even so, insurance for our employees was a priority.  Health, dental, and vision.  Sure, it was expensive, but you know what?  They did a lot of the work, too.  Couldn’t have done it without them.  They deserved it. 

The quote is taken from  “Health Care Plan Would Add Surtax on Wealthy”
