extending the Bush Era Tax Cuts
could create up to 3 Million Jobs
Outgoing progressive Congressman Alan Grayson (D-FL), took to the House Floor on November 18th and, made what would best be described as a impassioned speech for not extending the Bush Tax Cuts.  

Within his speech, he highlighted the five items wealthy tax payers in the top 1 percent of the U.S. income bracket could purchase, if the Bush Era 2001 and 2003 tax cuts are extended in Congress

The tax cuts would average up to $83,347 a year for each person, making over 1.4 Million Dollars a year. Representative Grayson, highlighted that a better use for the tax cuts, would be to employ up to 3 Million American job seekers at $30,000.
