What about the investors….and the road construction businesses…and the risk takers…and the 70 hour work weeks…and the B&O taxes….. and trucking surcharges…….

What they always fail to mention is the RISK of losing everything that these businessmen take. And bitching about Romney paying only 13% tax on capitol gains from stocks/bonds/etc. Increasing the tax on that only discourages investment, and then where would you be? Didn’t think that far ahead, did you?
It’s the RISK, you jug heads. Try taking one sometime.
And for the most part, government employees, paid with that guy’s taxes, do NOT build roads and bridges.
Private contractors actually build them. And built them long before there even was a federal government in this country.
