Why would you point out that he'd have to pay more anyway if he hired someone else? You're pretty much arrogantly demanding for a raise because that's his only option anyway, not asking. Next time you ask for a raise, back it up by pointing out how your previous and current contributions to the company have made you a valuable asset to the company.

he's just going for a power trip, I feel like he's just trying you this. I dint think your job is necessarily in the line. if so though, bring it higher up.
It'll give you a chance to find another job with a good boss! I know it's very crappy now but it'll probably end up being a blessing in disguise
That may be true, but this is the absolute worst time of year to be worried about being fired/looking for a new job. OP should have waited til the new year to ask for a raise, because end-of-year bookkeeping and "house cleaning" makes things more stressful for management. Ill timed for sure and unfortunately timing is everything... Sorry OP!
