From the Rush Limbaugh show
CALLER: Hey, how you doing, Rush?
RUSH: Very well, sir. Thank you.
CALLER: When you talking about the small businesses, I’m probably the smallest business owner right now that you can find, you know, when you talking about people owning small businesses because I’m a single man operation. I’m trying to make my business grow, and I know it’s going to grow and it’s going to do well past 250 gross. That’s what I’m talking about, and my concern is, what’s my incentive, then, to hire guys to even make this business grow if I’m going to get taxed up the yin-yang that he’s talking about, Obama. And I don’t think it’s net. I think he’s talking about gross. I don’t think he’s talking about income. Because small businesses, I mean there are thousands of us out there that own small businesses and do this. I mean, it’s ridiculous.
RUSH: We don’t know what he’s talking about.
CALLER: Well, that’s the thing, and that’s what I wish somebody ask him. I wish somebody would.
RUSH: We don’t know if he’s talking income. We don’t know if he’s talking gross. We don’t and he doesn’t, either. None of this is true! The $250,000 figure and his statement that 95% of small businesses earn less than that — gross, net, inventory, whatever — it’s just the magic figure to play the class envy card.
CALLER: But he’s gotta clarify that because it’s scary. I’m telling you, everybody I know is a small business owner.
RUSH: Let me ask you a question. Let me ask you a question.
RUSH: This statement that he’s gonna raise taxes on people over 250 grand, he’s made it numerous times in the campaign. It was last week in the town hall presidential debate where he said small businesses, the vast majority of them are $250,000 or less. He didn’t clarify, specify or anything. You said he’s going to be forced to have to explain it. Other than today have you heard anybody even reference the fact he said it in that debate?
RUSH: Did you watch the debate yourself?
CALLER: Yes, I did.
RUSH: You didn’t even pick up on it then until I talked about it today?
CALLER: I wish he did because I’ve been talking about it for the past month, and I don’t hear anybody talking about it and try to get more specific on it, you know what I’m saying? That’s crazy, because there are a lot of small businesses that make over 250. When I say I’m not, I just started last year, and my business will go over 250,000 because I know it can. The guys that I do business with and the people that are around me that do own small businesses are doing more than 250,000 a year, and that’s what scares me.
RUSH: Look, I got very little time. Do your friends know what’s headed for them?
CALLER: Yes, they do, and that’s why they’re not voting for Barack Obama.
RUSH: All right. Well, if you run into people, it doesn’t matter… You know, don’t use Obama’s name. Well, you have to use Obama’s name. You run into other small businesses who don’t know what’s in store for them, tell ’em.
