This note is a little unfair because the roots of the economic collapse can be traced back to Clinton and Alan Greenspan, but it does provide a solution to the budget cuts that every business is facing.
“LETTER FROM THE BOSS.....
As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President, and that our taxes, and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.
Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me, since I believe we are family here and I didn’t know how to choose who would have to go.
So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found six ‘Obama’ bumper stickers on our employees’ cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can’t think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change; I gave it to them.
I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic. "
Before the election, I questioned how dangerous Obama could be for the economy, but the public was willing to take the risk to make history- and history is what we are making.
The economy is desperate for a smaller government with lower taxes and a positive monthly trade balance. Instead, we have a government that is out of control while businesses continue to shed jobs by the millions.
