    Spend money you don't have that's what you are really good at.

    So you want to put a 5% surtax on the people who provide jobs are you just trying to get all of our business to move overseas.

    I know if I was a millionaire I sure wouldn't what any of my business here including myself.
    You and your party are doing a great job in raising taxes and creating -0- jobs.

    When will you people up there ever lean Government can't create jobs they can't even run their own business much less someone else.

    I pray every day you are only a one term president this Country can't afford four more years of you no leader, spending money you don't have, and in general a sorry excuse for a President.
