If you are under the impression that any business pays taxes, you simply must be a Democrat. There can be no other explanation for believing something so ridiculously stupid.
Take a moment to listen to FACTS and REASON. This shall be hard for you to do, Mr. "Progressive," but, please engage your gray matter for a minute. Read these words and attempt to understand them.
BUSINESSES DO NOT PAY TAXES. The person that buys the product or services from the "taxed" business pays those taxes because it is figured into the price of those products or services. It is called OVERHEAD. Simply put. OVERHEAD is the cost of doing business. A building, furniture, telephone service, a website, or taxes and fees are all costs of doing business.
To increase taxes on ANY business is to raise the price of the product or service. That is the ONLY thing that it does. In other words, when government levies any tax or fee on a business, the cost of the product or service supplied by that business must be increased to maintain PROFIT MARGIN.
PROFIT IS GOOD. If a business fails to make a profit, that business will not exist very long because the ONLY reason for that business to exist is to MAKE A PROFIT. Businesses are not created for the purpose of providing jobs, insurance, wages, or stability to any area that the "Progressives" determine this minute. They are formed to create a profit for their creator. PERIOD. There is no other reason.
YOU DO NOT PAY ALL OF YOUR FICA AND MEDICARE. Dumb people get all upset because Social Security and Medicare are taken from every one of their checks. Your company ALSO pays half of that. You are not paying all of it. So, understand, every time that minimum wage is increased, the cost of products and services go up even MORE than the minimum wage increase, because the EMPLOYER has to pay more in FICA and Medicare.
Bottom line in this idiotic debate is that if you are a proponent for increasing taxes on any business or increasing minimum wage, then you are asking to be POORER. It is really that simple.
Please, "Progressives," grow up and attempt to learn something.
Please take the time to comment.
