What kind of companies are going to be affected by a raise in taxes? McCain keeps saying "Joe the plumber" is going to be affected and can't afford it. Can anyone give me an example? (I'm from CT btw so something I've heard of would be good, lol)

Most small businesses make more than Obama's magic $250,000 A YEAR. But when you look at the overhead--insurance, rent, payroll, gas, utilities, seasonal gifts, taxes--payroll/income--daily items such as toilet paper, copy paper, ink, and all that---$250,000 IS NOT much. And a small business is anything that makes less than 5 million. So--if Obama taxes small business, he will create a lot of job loss. I had a good talk yesterday with my bil, another small business owner, it is unbelievable that most people don't understand that small business is the backbone of our economy. You start to punish the entrepreneurs of our country, and the unemployment rate will sky rocket.

Obama's "Redistribution of Wealth" is so Karl Marx--punish those who have excelled. Take from those who have worked hard for years, to give to those who haven't. People see a small business owner put his "8-10" hours a day in--but they don't see all of the extra hours--sometimes 16-20 hour days to make the business work. My husband doesn't get an hourly pay--when anything goes wrong, after hour calls, weekend calls---he goes. Few employees would want business owner hours---yet so many people want to see small business owners taxed more. Yet few understand what small business means to our country.
