A Rebuttal to Obama: Heck Yeah I Did It Myself!
July 18, 2012
Heck yeah I did it myself! I did grow my business myself - I'm the one who put in the long hours, I'm the one who worked weekends, I'm the one who paid myself less than my employees for 2 long years till we could sustain ourselves, and I paid for the roads, the police, the fire department, and the schools while doing it too.
Heck yeah I paid for that capital equipment myself too. In fact I paid for it twice over as every dollar I saved by not paying myself still had 45 cents pulled out in taxes. Every dollar I paid my employees had a payroll tax on it too. Heck, my partners and I could buy an entire assembly line every year and hire someone to run it too just on the taxes you suck away.
Oh, and that building I own? I'm paying for the fire and schools out of the property taxes on that, so don't go giving me a bunch of bull about how I owe you for all of that - it sure wasn't "free" while I was building my business. Maybe your cronies and donors don't have to pay their taxes as they go along, but I've never missed a tax payment yet.
