The myth that all "Job Creators" need upfront tax breaks
The claim that those considered job creators need tax breaks may not be as prevalent as it once was, but it only lost prominence a few years back, at most one decade ago. And worst still, it's one of those ideas that, like a Phoenix, will rise from the ashes as do so many bad ideas from the past.
To clarify, providing tax breaks to actual Job Creators is not problematic in and of itself. The problems arise when one considers who qualifies as a job creator and even how those jobs created are scrutinized. As for who, far too often, it's simply someone with a lot of money (the wealthy). These elites are often caught in the tax relief that allow millionaires and billionaires to pay less taxes than their servants. While the wording of tax policies make it sound as if only those who create jobs benefit. The truth of the matter however, is that many of those refunds apply to individuals who have never created anything. They are provided to people who have the means to create jobs, but not the will and they are offered upfront, before a single job has been created. A simple fix is offered in my petition here: End the Job Creator Lie which simply withholds tax benefits until after the jobs have actually been created and subsidizes the job on a graduated scale... Better paying jobs should subsidized at a higher rate. i won't go into the details here, but the ideas behind the petition would save the average worker come April 15th and it would guarantee that anyone labeled as a job creator actually creates jobs, benefitting the economy and the nation at large.
The RAD word of the day - Deniables: Any argument in which people, groups cloak themselves as a means to avoid accountability for their words or actions.
Usage: The deniables of the public servants in Washington D.C. were on full display as all feigned ignorance when indicted for insider trading as the means with which they attained hundreds of thousands, millions, tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of dollars while earning no more than three hundred thousand per year.
