TAXES: Republicans must think we’re idiots

I’m trying to understand the Republicans when they say that the rich people need to pay less taxes so they can hire more employees. The income tax is on personnel income not company income. So how many people do private citizens actually hire?

If they were trying to cut taxes for the businesses that hire employees then I could see it, but not private citizens who don’t employ more then a few employees.

Republicans must think that most Americans are idiots if they believe we don’t see them as they really are: money hungry. I know this sounds kind of off the wall, but I’m not a writer so I just write what I think. I’m not a member of any party, and I don’t vote for just one party. I vote for the person, although I have voted less and less for Republicans.
