Just more vote buying???????

A childcare tax break and caps on student loan payments?


Did the small business person benefit from this at all?
If you can't lower my business taxes, I won't be able to hire new people.
The dribble-down effect won't create many GOOD PAYING jobs.
Again, how does this really help?
Just more vote pandering.

  • He is doing this for people who 'can't see ' that he does not want to create jobs.

    Like I have said I did not go to collage and I can see this is stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The only way to create Jobs is tax breaks for small business!! that give them more money to hire and than these people go shopping. I learn this in the fourth grade.

    He does not want to help the people his action speak very loud. Can't you hear?

  • I absolutely agree. And what about the middle class that have grown children or no children at all? How does this help "the middle class"? I only see a crumb being thrown out to try to appease some people. And, then we have the poor. Not all poor people collect welfare. Many of them are also struggling. A taz credit or break only helps for the moment that your return check is in the hand. Once it is cashed and spent there is no more help. So, these breaks and credits, seem to me, to be as worthless as all get out. JMO

  • Small Businesses create over 65% of the jobs in America and Obama is doing Jack-Sh*t to help them.

  • I am still trying to figure out how a childcare tax credit will help when there are NO JOBS. Capping the student loan payment will just mean more money for the banks....they will now earn interest over a longer period of time.

  • You are right, Special. Wow, that childcare tax credit means tons of women COULD go back to work, IF there were jobs..... And honestly if they don't have the money to pay for childcare NOW, that tax credit 12 months down the road won't help much.

    Student loans.... UGH. Isn't it just inviting more people to rack up more debt? The college graduates are having problems finding jobs NOW.

    Cut taxes on small businesses. Makes the most sense.
