Tax ‘reform’: Cuts cannot add funding

August 7, 2013

Why is it that almost always, when the word “reform” is used in Washington, it means bigger, more expensive government? And why is it that when some talk about creating jobs, they really intend to......

Maybe those companies create jobs that benefit the communities in which they operate. Maybe those companies are able to lower the price of their goods to compete world wide. Maybe those companies pay state and local taxes on purchaces and other operating expense. Maybe those companies provide dividends that some retired people (as well as others) depend on for income. If this was a bad idea howcum N.Y.S. is open for business with the same kind of incentives..It works we now have a Polish Ravioli plant in Westfield that has a 10 year "sweetheart" deal.

OMG, WOW: They finally did it; called out Obama for exactly what he is, a "socialist" and whether commentators want to perceive that as a small or large "S" is no matter as variations of socialism, Marxism, communism = "un-American" and "unconstitutional" in principal, and in practice as well as in theory. This article is absolutely correct! (Oh and JoeW, Thank You. These five a**clowns have written so many liberal (aka progressive) (aka socialist) comments, they can start their own circus. Wash DC or Albany may welcome their act, but we don't!)

The preceding 5 comments are indeed entertaining and worth a laugh or two since none understood what was written.

"new obstacles in the way of the private sector...". You mean requiring the private sector to adhere to appropriate checks and balances, to stop stealing from the 99% for the benefit of the 1%? Neo-cons talk big about creating jobs but they don't bother to tell you that the jobs are all minimum wage, part time, with no benefits. Hard to support a single person much less a family.

Take it from one place and spend it in another. You are not saving anything. You are just rearranging it. Hello it isn't working!!

The clueless church lady gaggle OBSERVER board must be back from vacation (my hat's off to the intern who ran the lace i the interim...) because who else, seriously who else?, would ever stoop to such pedestrian lows of mental midgetdom to resort to the-best-they-can-do is to say "Tax-and-spend socialist"?

Tax reform does not equal tax cuts. What it does equal is closing loopholes and tax shelters and other schemes that allow too many to pay little to no taxes.

Just google it for yourself. companies who pay NO federal taxes. I think you would be shocked.

Closing these loopholes is REFORM. A reform that will generate lots of money that we then can put to good use.
