Killing Bush tax cuts means killing jobs

Posted on December 5, 2010


Newsflash: The unemployment rate jumped to 9.8 percent in November.

Backlash: Democrats immediately set to making matters worse.

With the Bush tax cuts due to expire on Dec. 31, House and Senate Dems wasted precious hours this week on symbolic votes as they tried to ignite class warfare against Republicans.

Sen. Claire McCaskill suggested taxpayers “take up pitchforks” against the GOP for pushing to extend cuts for even the highest earners.

Great idea — if your goal is to make the jobless rate even worse.

Hiking taxes on top earners would net revenue but devastate small businesses, which generate most American jobs.
