Here's some common sense sent to me by my friend Andy, which I would like to share with the rest of you:
"Get your facts straight, my Conservative friends.
Small businesses are not the targets of tax increases. The tax increases, if there even are any, would be targeted at individuals who make a lot more than $250-500K a year. What are you trying to say by we "idiots" who want to tax the largest employers in the economy? Show me where and when we "idiots" or President Obama ever said he wanted to tax small businesses. In effect, the heath care bill would make providing health care for employers cheaper for small businesses and provide more freedom to expand their business.
Furthermore, outsourcing has to do with services such as IT troubleshooting that MNCs hire out to overseas employers because they will work for a lower wage. Its got nothing to do with US taxes on MNCs. They are simply following free market neo-liberal practices instigated and supported by the very same people you vote for. It's because of this practice that large businesses are able to "gobble up the small businesses." Do you even know what you mean by outsourcing?
You should stop clutching to ideology and employ some of the "common sense" you and your leaders speak so highly of."
