Not just any tax cuts… middle-class tax cuts… those making less then $200,000 per year.
“”This bipartisan compromise is about creating jobs. Extending middle class tax cuts will help create jobs. … Job creation needs to be our number one priority.”…
…The measure represents a reach across party lines after two years of political combat in which Republicans wanted a permanent extension of all the tax cuts enacted when George W. Bush was president, while Democrats insisted rates be permitted to rise on incomes over $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for couples.”
Uh… what jobs would be created by those making less then $200,000/year? Burger-flipper? Part-time house-cleaner? Lawn service? How many are also middle-class jobs?
It’s those who make MORE then $200,000/yr that provide the middle-class jobs at a rate that is actually beneficial to the economy.
