This is from a "letter to employees"

I am being taxed to death and the government thinks I don't pay enough. I have state taxes. Federal taxes. Property taxes. Sales and use taxes. Payroll taxes. Workers compensation taxes. Unemployment taxes. Taxes on taxes. I have to hire a tax man to manage all these taxes and then guess what? I have to pay taxes for employing him. Government mandates and regulations and all the accounting that goes with it, now occupy most of my time. On Oct 15th, I wrote a check to the US Treasury for $288,000 for quarterly taxes. You know what my "stimulus" check was? Zero. Nada. Zilch.

The question I have is this: Who is stimulating the economy? Me, the guy who has provided 14 people good paying jobs and serves over 2,200,000 people per year with a flourishing business? Or, the single mother sitting at home pregnant with her fourth child waiting for her next welfare check?

Obviously, government feels the latter is the economic stimulus of this country. The fact is, if I deducted (Read: Stole) 50% of your paycheck you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? That's nuts. Who wants to get rewarded only 50% of their hard work? Well, I agree which is why your job is in jeopardy. Here is what many of you don't understand .. to stimulate the economy you need to stimulate what runs the economy. Had suddenly government mandated to me that I didn't need to pay taxes, guess what? Instead of depositing that $288,000 into the Washington black-hole, I would have spent it, hired more employees, and generated substantial economic growth. My employees would have enjoyed the wealth of that tax cut in the form of promotions and better salaries.

It's something you saw on the internet and thought it must be true because it's on the internet.

No. I snoped it, same as you, and although written under a pretense it is right on the money. I know of no one who is successful in business that doesn't have a similar story to tell, no one starts at the top, except obamas' mythical evil "millionaires and billionaires".

You run on class warfare because your record is abysmal. obama isn't, wasn't and never will be fit to be president, he is president of clowns.

Yeah - I'm sure you snoped it. I bet you never give up a chance to make yourself look like a fool, right?

You are after all a parrot for those who wish to eliminate the middle class entirely, yourself included.

But keep telling yourself that if you caddie for them long enough they will let you become a member of the country club. FYI - It's never going to happen.

The suckers would be brain-impaired republicans and democrats who witnessed 4 years of Obama failure and are supporting Obama for a second term of incompetence.

Other Obama Promises that he has broken:

Cut the Deficit in Half:– the president vowing shortly after taking office to cut an inherited deficit in half by the end of his first term.

The deficit was $1.4 trillion in fiscal 2009 and is projected to dip to $1.2 trillion this fiscal year, according to the White House budget office. Even in 2013, the budget office projects the deficit will be nearly $1 trillion.

“The president has not taken any serious action to tame the deficit

Fix the Economy: Regardless of when the country’s economic problems started, the president also vowed during his campaign to fix the economy in three years. Fourteen months later, he said missing the deadline would make his presidency a “one-term proposition.”

The U.S. unemployment rate has remained above 8 percent for more than three years, despite the president's economic adviser predicting one month into the administration that the president’s roughly $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act would keep unemployment below 8 percent and reduce it to about 6 percent by this year

Close Guantanamo Bay..
last year the president signed a bill that restricted the transfer of prisoners to the U.S. mainland and essentially allows Guantanamo Bay to remain open indefinitely.

Televise Health Care Debate: Obama also said repeatedly in his run for the White House – in TV ads, on the campaign trail and in at least one debate – that the negotiations on his health care reform plan would be televised, if he were elected. However, final health care talks, including the meetings between House and Senate conferees, were held behind closed doors.

The list goes on and on and on
