If Republicans want to create new American jobs, do they need to reduce taxes even more for billionaires?
What do you think, if you're a Republican? Of course, your tax cuts will mean a certain amount of pain for the American public -- a crippled Medicare system, huge layoffs of teachers & cops & firemen, reductions in food stamp programs and prenatal health care programs for the poor, etc. But from a GOP perspective, is there really any other way to improved US prosperity? More reductions in the top rates charged to millionaires & billionaires, even if it produces a higher US national debt?

It's the same old story. Pay the poor less to make them work harder but pay the rich more to incentivise them to work harder. The Tories do it with our own money through tax breaks.

Tax cuts has not made jobs for a long time now. I don't think they are interested in making jobs just making fake wealth profits that can easily evaporate like it did not so long ago. Here we go again.

i don't even know why we're asking them for taxes at all. why aren't we paying them just to be here? everybody says, they make the jobs we all need. lately they been so stressed out they couldn't make any new ones. maybe somebody should run out and buy them some lattes.

So you are saying that the wealthy should pay even more of the countries taxes, and the 40% that do not pay any should get a free ride still? I say a flat tax.

As a Business owner I can personally tell you that my company DOES NOT pay taxes. YOU do! The taxes just like any other operating expense gets figured into the cost of the service or product. Also go to the govrerments web sites and look up how much the rich pay in taxes compared to middle class people.
