    Our old friend David Siegel is at it again!

    "If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company."

    Now, normally I would not be too opposed to this, but this guy has a history of thinking that things like this are acceptable.

    I personally find it hilarious that the man who put a ton of effort to build the largest home (The Queen of Versailles) in the US, yet simultaneously threatens to fire employees if he has to pay ANY new taxes.

    He later commented: "It speaks the truth and it gives [employees] something to think about when they go to the polls,"

    Seems like some good ole bullying to me.

    two things

    1) this is the same crap teachers do, kids vote obama, vote obama, love obama, tell your parents.

    2) hes correct. i said this before the companies were thinking it, you want to bypass obamacare, redo your company so u have smaller SEPERATE companies under 1 banner and make them less than 50 employees. the dems do this getting around the constitution all the time , lets turn the tables.

    That makes about as much sense as if an hourly employee stated that if his taxes were raised he would have no other choice except to reduce his hours or quit his job.

    Ahh yes.

    Magically the day (if) Obama is elected all businesses downsize or close for no reason at all.

    Or was there some proof that businesses will be unquestionable crushed?

    Let me know,

    The OP is nothing more than hysterical hyperbolic bullshit. And, apparently, it thinks (and by 'thinks' I obviously mean it gets its opinions from dumbassed left wing hack sites)... that businesses are a bottomless pit of money.

    Moron.

    Well, if he did fire employees for the way they voted, he's lose big time in court. It's simply illegal.

    Or is he just telling them like it is? Many companies are barely making it and increased taxes will be the end. I'd rather they be honest and let employees know that their jobs may not be secure rather than give them a surprise pink slip. Obama's policies are job killers. If he gets re-elected, there will likely be a global tax since he will make another agreement with the U.N. and allow them to tax the world. It's to prevent anyone from leaving a hell hole and taking their money with them. They want their clutches on peoples' money no matter where they go. It'll be part of the "You can run from socialists, but you can't hide" program.
