We are all in this and we should all have to help out. Starting with those who it hurts the least is at least a start.
Ok, so in your proposal, we will increase the cost of doing business AND...AND raise taxes on everyone with a sputtering economy and jobless rate at the 8%ish level. Congratulations! You just put us in a recession.
