" taxes are lowered for those doing the most to support the economy" referring to the owners...

See I have a different take.... The folks that make the economy are those that create the most demand... That is predominately the workers...

An owner will not hire the next marginal worker without an increase in demand...

I regard taxes on the owners of business as having a marginal effect at most... Taxes never stopped Larry Ellison, Bill gates, Michale Dell, etc.. from turning smaller business into huge companies.... It was all about demand...
