Citing 2 "progressive" sites as your source for this groundbreaking news does nothing to enhance the credibility of this thread.

Barking liberal moonbats crowing about fellow barking liberal moonbats booing a non-liberal is hardly newsworthy.

Why do small businsesmen, wealthy, or not, need tax cuts to create jobs in the first place? If they are running a growing business, they're not going to help business further improve by sitting around, hoping for a tax cut.
