Do tax breaks always increase wages? A boss is not obligated to pay his workers more based on what he makes.

No, but does less money make him more likely to hold on to his workers?

It doesn't factor in at all.

Demand for his product will dictate the amount of help he hires.

Correct. And since demand is so low, yet supply is so high, it's pretty easy to see how to fix our economic problems.

you are looking at it from a partial equilibrium perspective, should consider both sides

Less money as in he brings in $998,800 instead of $1,000,000?

We're not talking small business. I don't think a .09% increase in taxes will kill the richest of citizens. It's like taxes on a school levy, you don't even notice it.

Some more GOP butthurt:

Virginia GOP Official: Obama Will Go To Hell

Quote:
Virginia Republican party official Bob FitzSimmonds is by no means a fortune teller, but he feels confident guessing that President Obama is going to hell.
In a Facebook posting, FitzSimmonds, who is a close associate of Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, speculated that Obama would live a long life but when he died at 90, he would be going to hell:



FitzSimmonds stood by those comments, telling the Virginia-Pilot, “my Facebook post was not about Obama going to Hell. It was about his obsession with blame shifting and I don’t really see anything inappropriate about it.”
But a spokesman for Cuccinelli, who is running for Virginia governor, was quick to dismiss the comments, saying “Mr. FitzSimmonds does not speak for our campaign, and we don’t agree with his assessment.”

And I'm not a Republican, just acknowledging the failure of the Obama administration
