Jim Matheson and the Carlos Boozer Tax Cut

Jim Matheson favors extending this guy's tax cut:

And is willing to have your taxes go up if he doesn't get it.

Yes, Jim, that's exactly what Utahns want.

Really, what the crap? Are you really that scared of Morgan Philpot?

Keep it up, Congressman, and nobody will vote for you.

That makes about as much sense as a cow in a beauty pageant. Kind of seems to neglect the fact that most of the people in that tax bracket are also the people who put their resources on the line to start, run, and keep a business afloat... you know, those things that used to keep the economy going before the Administration decided to see what it could do to make government the largest employer in America? Small business?

Steam blown off.

That's why there are provisions in the Obama bill to offset the tax increase for small businesses.

And, I was wondering how a compromise to raise the level to $1Miliion would work. How many small businesses are in the 250K-1M range? anyone know?

What nobody seems to mention is that lowering the rate for incomes of $250,000 or less means EVERYONE who pays income taxes gets a break. Median household income in 2008 was $52,029. Obama's proposed tax cut is a tax cut for the rich.
