    I don't get it

    Think about it. Obama wants to reduce taxes for those earning less than $250k by passing the loss of these taxes to larger businesses. Idiotic. Most politicians believe voters are dumb. (They are.) Businesses do not pay tax as such. The consumer pays all the tax. The business adds the tax into the cost of the merchandise, passing it on to the consumer. This is called 'Hidden Tax'.
    Obama's social programs all sound great until you think about who is paying for them. We the tax payers.
    His 'share the wealth' philosophy really stinks.
