After eight years of the Bush tax breaks, and Republican insistance to extend them two more years, we are still being told that businesses won't hire if they lose those breaks. Well, for ten years with breaks they HAVEN'T hired. Look at the facts: unemployment has steadily risen and is now at an all time high. Now Joe Walsh is the latest to claim that businesses are "afraid to hire," fearing losing the tax breaks. Really! How long will we be fooled by these claims? Businesses pay for performance. Its time we give "breaks" to businesses that perform.
