Susan Collins On Board To Tax Rich

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) bucked her party on the question of how to pay for an extension of the payroll tax cuts, namely coming out in favor of the Democratic plan to place a surtax on millionaires 3.1 percent.

Yet Collins didn’t stop there, however, as the Huffington Post reports.

But Collins, often a maverick in her party, made a telling departure from the prevailing orthodoxy, arguing that job creators and the rich are not one and the same, and that actual job creators are businesses, such as small corporations and partnerships, that hire people.
