Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Geithner: Hey, we need to tax the crap out of small businesses so government doesn’t get any smaller!

You want to know what the priority is of the economic illiterates in the White House administration?  Look no further than Turbo Tax Timmeh:

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told the House Small Business Committee on Wednesday that the Obama administration believes taxes on small business must increase so the administration does not have to “shrink the overall size of government programs.”

The administration’s plan to raise the tax rate on small businesses is part of its plan to raise taxes on all Americans who make more than $250,000 per year—including businesses that file taxes the same way individuals and families do.

“Looking into the future, you are supporting the idea of taxation, increasing taxes on those who make $250,000 or more. Those are our business owners,” said Ellmers (That’s freshman Republican Renee Elmers of NC, the lady that defeated the “hoower you, you whippersnapper college student” assault guy. – CL).

Geithner initially responded by saying that the administration’s planned tax increase would hit “three percent of your small businesses.”

Ellmers then said: “Sixty-four percent of jobs that are created in this country are for small business.”

Geithner conceded the point, but then suggested the administration’s planned tax increase on small businesses would be “good for growth.”

“No, that’s right. I agree with that,” said Geithner. “But just to put it in perspective, it’s important to recognize why are we doing this. You know, our deficits are 10 percent of GDP, higher than they’ve been since any time in the postwar period really. We have a big hole to dig out of, and we have to figure out how to do that in a way that’s balanced, good for growth, fair to people as a whole.”

Ah, yes.  The ol’ “tax hikes are GREAT for job creation and economic growth” argument!  Yep, that worked when…um…well, there was the time that, uh…um…I mean, we jacked taxes up and saw the economy roar like gangbusters when…uh…

Never mind.  Stats are racist anyway.  Continuing:

When Ellmers finally told Geithner that “the point is we need jobs,” he responded that the administration felt it had “no alternative” but to raise taxes on small businesses because otherwise “you have to shrink the overall size of government programs”—including federal education spending.

So now we get to the heart of it!  It’s not growing the economy that these nimrods want…it’s growing government!  I mean, those of us in Normal America have known that, but it’s nice to wrestle a confession out of the ObaMao admin every once in a while.

I can think of one Timmy that is at least slightly more competent and intelligent than Geithner:

  1. Ah, the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. The current admin allowed Turbotax Tim speak and he gave it away. We already knew what they were after all this time. Tax the crap outta the producers so the moochers could have more. But, now it is stated by an incompetent who can’t figure out his own tax code, using Turbo Tax! It just gets better all the time.
    Am I surprised? Nah. I have known for some time that the bunch in D.C. had no intention of fixing the economy. More government is the mantra of all socialists, and this bunch is no exception. The bigger the government, the less liberty and freedom for the citizens. Arm up, folks, here it comes.
    Stupid liberals, still think the folks in “flyover” country are rubes. We heard ya, Tim, we are listening, and watching, and preparing.

  2. Getting rid of Obama is important but the condition we’re in today goes far deeper. As J. Guidry says, no one with an IQ in double digits is surprized by Timmy’s comments. I’m only saying that we can’t just focus on the office of president and not be vigilant when it comes to other elected’s, especially at the state and local levels. As for the presidency, anyone is an improvement over Obama. Heck, if it got the nomination, I’d cast my vote for a circus seal that barks my name.
