Posted on The Heritage Foundation-By Andy Keim-On October 11, 2011:

How much do high-earning families need to pay before the Obama administration can finally say they are finally contributing their “fair share?” If such a number even exists, we have apparently not found it yet, if the latest proposed tax hike is any indication.

The Heritage Foundation’s Curtis Dubay explains the consequences of the President’s latest tax proposal:

“Taxpayers earning more than $1 million per year are investors and businesses that are directly responsible for creating jobs. Investors provide the capital to existing businesses and startups so they can expand and add new workers. Raising their taxes would deprive them of resources they could invest in promising businesses that are looking to add employees. Raising their tax rate would deter them from taking the risk to invest.”

In the long term, lower-income families will feel the sting of the tax hike as well. In another report, Dubay says job-creators immediately affected by the tax will refuse to hire additional workers simply because it won’t make any economic sense to do so:

“Many businesses pay their taxes through their owners’ individual income tax returns. The President’s tax hikes would be a direct tax on these important employers. A recent study from President Obama’s own Treasury Department shows that 90 percent of businesses that pay taxes through the individual income tax code and employ workers would pay the higher taxes under the President’s plan. Higher taxes would reduce these businesses’ incentives to hire new workers and their ability to retain or increase compensation for their existing employees.”

Ultimately, the U.S. government’s self-destructive policies will harm lower-income families far more than the more successful families and companies who can shoulder the burden at the cost of a reduced work force.

“The millionaire tax would end up costing the U.S. economy more jobs than the President’s jobs plan it is supposed to pay for would ever create. It would ruin American competitiveness among other developed countries,” Dubay says.

If the Obama administration truly values job-creation, it should focus on the real root of the deficit: runaway spending brought on by years of government expansion and poor decision-making.

What do you think? How can the President’s jobs plan create employment opportunities when it makes hiring new employees more costly?”

I. After Obama’s Jobs Plan Fails in Senate, GOP Pushes Its Own Plan!

Posted on Matt Cover-On October 12, 2011:

( – House Republicans say they are moving ahead with their own ideas on the economy now that President Barack Obama’s jobs plan failed in the Senate Tuesday night. They called on President Obama to work with them on their ideas.

Although the Democrats hold a 53-47 majority in the Senate, the president’s bill, the American Jobs Act of 2011, was defeated on a 50-49 vote, with two Democrats – Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Jon Tester of Montana – joining with the Republicans against the bill.

At a Capitol Hill news conference on Wednesday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that now that Obama’s plan had failed, the GOP would turn to its own ideas, adding that the GOP would also be willing to work with Democrats on areas of common ground.

“Nearly a month ago, House Republicans outlined – for the president – areas of common agreement where we could work together,” Boehner said. “The fact is Republicans have a plan – our plan for America’s job creators that we outlined back in May – and we have been working since then to enact the ideas outlined in this proposal.”

Boehner said that Republicans would keep working on areas of common ground, stressing that finding ways to improve the economy was what the American people wanted.

“We’re going to continue to work with the president in order to create a better environment,” he said. “Not everything the president outlined is something that we agree with, certainly not everything we’ve outlined is something the president would agree with.”

At the same press conference, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said that Obama’s campaign for his own proposal had “failed” and called on Democrats to work with Republicans instead of pursuing an all-or-nothing approach.

“[T]he Senate’s action last night proved that the month-long campaign that the White House has been on to promote the president’s bill failed,” Cantor said. “The president’s bill does not have the bipartisan support needed to pass because we believe that it is contrary to what is needed right now to help small businesses grow.”

Cantor said that Republicans would introduce some of their ideas after the planned congressional recess next week, including a bill to repeal a 3 percent income tax withholding requirement for government contractors.

Despite the calls for common ground, Republicans made clear they would not support Democratic ideas that contradict their basic principles, saying that they would oppose ideas that raise new taxes or incur more federal borrowing.

GOP Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) said that part of the Republican agenda was opposing aspects of Obama’s plans that Republicans thought were bad policy.

“[W]hen this Congress began, House Republicans put forth a plan for America’s job creators,” Hensarling said. “Now, in this plan, it means that if the president wants to spend money we don’t have for jobs that we never get, we will oppose him. We believe that as part of this plan America has to be on a fiscally sustainable path.”

“If the president wants to increase taxes on job creators, we will oppose that,” said Hensarling. “We are trying to ensure that there is a fairer, simpler, more competitive tax code.”

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
