Democrats See an Advantage in Debate Over Payroll Tax
Edited on Fri Dec-02-11 09:57 AM by ShockediSay

...As the week began, Republicans opposed extending a payroll tax cut, according to Senator Jon Kyl of Arizona, the Senates No. 2 Republican leader. The payroll tax holiday has not stimulated job creation, he said on Fox News Sunday. We dont think that is a good way to do it. ....

...He and other Republicans say the surtax would hurt many job creators among small businesses. Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner, citing a Treasury study, said less than 1 percent of taxpayers who would pay the surtax were small businesses....

In truth, over ten years of the Bush Cheney Millionaire Tax Holiday did not create jobs via the 'job creators,' it created the Great Worldwide Recession.

2. With jobs going up over 120,000 in Nov
Sen Jon Kyl will do more to obstruct jobs creation in next 11 months. The jobs creators mantra, is a ridiculous defense. They had that in place for ten years and where are the jobs. The corporations are sitting on $2+ trillion cash, how much more cash do they need to sit on, before hiring. The more they put out the more they make, win win.
The green energy sector should lead the way, in job creation, through retrofitting and new commitments to the grid and commercial, home, municipal, school and federal buildings.
They should use the subsidies given to oil industry, to start programs for future energy needs.
