Obama Doesn’t Want To Help Small Businesses
The Obama White House is threatening to veto a small business tax cut bill:
The White House has threatened to veto a small business tax cut bill being pushed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), calling it a $46 billion “giveaway” to the “most fortunate.”
That statement right there shows just how out of touch the Obama Administration is with real life in what they likely call “fly-over country.” My favorite restaurant in town is a little burger joint that has 6 or fewer employees (I’ve never actually counted) and the owner is there pretty much from open to close 6 days a week. About the only time you won’t find him on the premises is if he’s running to the store for some last minute supplies, to the bank, or similar business-related errands. My mechanic is literally himself and his son working in the shop. The local used book store has about 3 nice elderly ladies working in it. Yet the Obama White House would deny these businesses a cut in their taxes, calling them the “most fortunate.”
Hey, Obamacrats, adviser David Axelrod buying a $1.7 million Chicago condo is an example of the “most fortunate.” John Kerry deliberately berthing his yacht outside his home state of Massachusetts is an example of the “most fortunate.” Barack Obama getting help from a Chicago slumlord to buy his Hyde Park mansion for $300,000 below the asking price is an example of the “most fortunate.” But these hard-working small business owners with just a handful of employees are not — I say again, not — the “most fortunate” among us.
But Obama has lived his entire adult life in a lefty bubble of unreality, and he’s completely disconnected from reality outside that bubble. He needs to be given the boot so he can play golf all day.
