Frustrated Constituents Jeer Sen. McCain For Supporting Huge Corporate Tax Breaks

Post by gettheminNOVEMBER on Wed Aug 10, 2011 6:15 pm

An overflowing town hall in Tuscon, Arizona quickly turned hostile yesterday when constituents confronted Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on a range of issues from the debt ceiling deal to the war in Afghanistan. The event got off to a rocky start when many residents were turned away at the door because the room was not large enough. As McCain entered, he was greeted by sustained chanting of “Where are the jobs?”

Its not hard to understand we SPEND on the tax cuts and that money should be used for JOBS. The so called Job Creators will not hire without demand driven by JOBS!

Serves em right for going home for summer recess when the country's economy is about to implode. Now they're gonna hear it from their constituents. They're gonna want to come back to Washington, just to get away from them.

I am very much an Obama critic BUT I am very very upset with the repubs. and they too should be voted OUT!! How can anyone justify laying down the gauntlet about spending cuts deeply into hurting Americans , such as SS, medicare, medicade, and more programs needed more today than every but yet as BAD as things are to keep demanding for tax breaks for the rich! If they don't want to hire and hang on to their wealth then tax th crap out of them. Reverse psychology! Give them incentives(Not stupid tax credits for hiring). But raise their tax levels based on their profits. But if they agree to hire (slowly) Know they can't all rush out and hire 12 million at once. But base the hires on the volume of business annually and also their profit % based on their annual earnings and receipts, then make it a scale. If they hire so many employees per a staggered profit growth then they get so much tax credits, if they do not hire and report high earnings and profits then raise their base taxes. Until they see its better to hire and boost the economy by pumping more revenues from payroll taxes and income taxes than be taxed in a higher bracket until it hurts. If they love profits then hire and make more. Get the picture! and maybe cut income taxes for the middle class. But raise the tax levels 1% on the higher earners. 250,000 or more raise 1% 500,000 raise tax to 2% and so on! IMHO!!!

BTW!!! put an excise tax of 4% on American companies that manufacture overseas and sell back to this country and even those who do not manufacture but do service and distribution and more overseas. That will change some minds! BUT pres. and dems. and repubs. have TOO many rich friends. BOTH of them do! IMHO!!!

1208,

I really like that excise tax idea! I'd use the proceeds to fund a real system of unemployment aid, one that continues extended benefits until joblessness reaches something close to normal levels of 5% or 5 1/2%.

I like the other idea as well, but it's a bit more complicated, and I like the fact that the excise tax directly goes after companies that offshore and then sell those goods here.

I'd call the excise a "luxury" tax. It's a tax on offshoring, a luxury America can no longer afford.

I'd call it a tariff--and a long-overdue and time-tested idea.

I like the other idea too--jobless recoveries--not just painful for the jobless any more.

We unemployed have plenty of sacrifice we're willing to share.

He is very opinionated and never listens to his constituents.

His constituents are upset and frustrated with him because he's STILL telling them, "The fundamentals of the economy are STRONG!".

The nitwit believes that because the "fundamentals" of HIS (and his rich buddies and corporations)economy are STRONG.
He does not understand, nor does he choose to understand, that the economy they live in is totally different and separate from the economy that we live in. I get it, you get it, we all get it. THEY do not, nor do they care.

Yeah, when you don't know how many houses you own, you definitely live in a different economy from ours. Schmuck.
