I support H.R. 122 ("To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to allow a credit against income tax") because...it puts the power of taxation squarely in the hands of we the people and out of the hands of D.C. It does not hurt the poor, reward the rich or increase taxes on the middle class and simple research will prove this and is exactly what this nation needs to get back to the #1 spot in the world.

I oppose H.R. 122: Creating Jobs From Innovative Small Businesses Act of 2013 because the criteria for qualifying is entirely too restrictive. Research can bring innovations which can in turn bring about new sources of revenue but for a company to dedicate "at least" 50% of their gross expenditures to research and experimentation, just seems to expect a little too much.
