Yes, I realize some may find this off topic on this blog. I don’t think, to date, I have commented on the election of our President. However, economic realities are this – you may not believe in trickle down economics, but yet it exists, for both good and ill. In any event, I felt this email telling, even though there is no JOOA Corporation that I can find and this email is possibly a fake. However, the reality is that higher taxes on corporations and investments mean higher costs for everything. Tax is factored into every business model and the buck stops with, yes, individuals.
Dear Fellow Business Owners,
As a business owner who employs 30 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama
will be our next President and that my taxes and fees will go up in a BIG way.
To compensate for these increases, I figure, that my customers will have to see an increase in my
fees to them of about 8%. I will also have to lay off 6 of my employees. This really bothered me as
I believe we are family here and didn’t know how to choose who will have to go. So, this is what I did.
I strolled through the parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on my employees’ cars. I have
decided these folks will be the first to be laid off.
I can’t think of another fair way to approach this problem. If you have a better idea, let me know.
I am sending this letter to all business owners that I know.
