1. I can create jobs right now without any tax-cut extension.

 

All I need is to know who I have to contact about bidding on the "pelting Republican media-buffoons with rotting fruit" concession.

Jobs for farmers, jobs for ticket-takers and ticket-sellers, jobs for the guys who hose the rotting fruit pulp off Senor's face once an hour, jobs for the accountant to manage my millions in profits. Jobs! Good jobs! No tax-cuts wanted.

2. His logic is bizarre, to say the least.

He's trying to make the case that if someone owns a successful store or business, they won't want to grow and be even more successful because they fear there MIGHT be a new tax or regulation at some point in the future. It is ludicrous, and flies in the face of everything that has ever happened before.

Fortunately, Dan was practically laughed off the set for his tortured explanation.

4. The problem is that all he is presenting is ideology

not economic facts.

9. It's total bullshit. TOTAL BULLSHIT.

I am a small business owner in one of the most heavily taxed and regulated industries in this country, and would expand in a heartbeat if I could secure proper financing without having to give the banksters one of my kidneys to do so.

Not once ever have I thought, "I might want to not try to make more money today, because at some undefinite point in the future, taxes or regulations might change!"

Here's a clue to the idiots...taxes and regulations ALWAYS CHANGE.

A good businessman anticipates and conforms to a changing business and regulatory environment; those that can't or won't go out of business.

The Invisible Hand that the Republicans love so much at work, they just hate it when it works against them.

6. Mika, that silly goose, asked the perennial question: so for how many

years we've had these tax cuts for the wealthy and where are the jobs?

Then Dan repeats the usual GOP spin: that's because the job creators are "uncertain" about new regulations. It's bait and switch all the time with these guys. Clearly, the tax cuts=jobs spin ain't working. And they never will work (to produce jobs). Even Andy Serwer objected pretty strenuously to that line! He said that businesses really are looking at how the business economy is looking, not looking for MORE tax breaks (they will still have plenty of other tax incentives). No wonder Mika said Dan was just "hanging on by a thread."

11. job creators

You want to create jobs, take it from me, a job creator, I am a middle class employed worker who makes less then 250,000 a year with a house payment, car(s) payment, college tuition, and grocery buyer. I am a job creator. I spend in the businesses that fill warehouses, that hire workers to build stuff in the warehouses. We, the middle class are all the job creators. Give us not just a tax cut, but give us actual money to spend, not handing it to the states to disperse, usually to the local govts. If you give every employed middle class worker, $5,000 - $7,000, I know they will spend that money. The republicans have it wrong, the rich are the business owners, (some), but we, the middle class are the job creators.

13. The middle class are the real job creators

They buy the products and services provided by businesses. Without those consumers businesses would never make any money.

14. Maybe if they had created millions of jobs because of those cuts

We'd all be fighting to make them permament.

They've had over 10 years, the gravy train ends now!

15. The "job creators" meme is utter baloney

my boss - a small business owner - would then be one of the hallowed job creators. It makes no difference to him whatsoever if he pays 35 or 38 percent taxes. In practice, its much less than that and there are plenty of choices he makes along the way to conform his spending to his income. One of which is absolutely not whether to hire more people or not - that depends entirely on the volume of consistent business we see.

About the only thing you could do to cause hiring in my business would be if the bulk of the customers had more spending money.

16. This is the strongest argument against extending the tax cuts.

If we get rid of the tax cuts and the government isn't running such a deficit; then the government can spend that money making necessary infrastructure improvements (in other words creating jobs).

That anyone thinks we are better off letting the excess money that the government spends sit in the hands of the wealthy because they 'might' spend that money to create jobs; is a statement indicative of just how stupid and manipulated some of the folks in this country have become.

If they are truly 'job creators'; they know that they don't pay taxes on a legitimate business expense like wages and salaries.

It seems to me that a lot of the 'job creators' (folks making over $250,000) work either for big companies at the government teet, or directly for the government.

17. His asshole is jealous of the shit coming out of his mouth!

While I think that's a perfect explanation for anything that spews from Senor, I have to attribute the quote to Tamra Barney, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County.

Fuck Dan Senor - he's such a mental lightweight that he's a perfect spokesman for Swiss Mitt.

18. I'm kicking this important thread . . .

. . . mostly because it has the words of real business owners who debunk the "TAXIS N REGULASHINS HAMPERN GROWTH" myths that the right like to slap around.
