Duh...guess what, Obamacare provides more incentive to provide only part-time work. Don't think so (as it is transparently obvious), companies already experimenting with same.

Yes, mean evil rich people. Got it.

You increase the cost of something, you decrease the demand for it. An utterly unrefuted law of economics.

But yes, perhaps the cost of Obamacare is worth it. But don't tell me that there will not be steep cost for it.

Oh yes, tax rates on rich mean nothing either, right?

Sure, he might be puffing. But you know what, I'm not nearly that rich and have thought the same. Why invest that extra dollar to have the returns taxed at over 50%. It really makes no sense at all.

Please, don't tell me that I will still be making more money. Because, quite frankly, IT IS A BEEPING LOT OF WORK AND STRESS AND RISK. Ever take risk, and have it fall in your face. Ever face the stress and work of expanding a business like this?

No, it is not the same as an employee. I've been there. Grew up poor, was happy as heck to get $12 an hour, been an employee, and it is nothing compared to what the entrepreneur goes through. So please, don't give me that false narrative.

Same thing happening in France right now, with just the notion of the new tax the rich rate.

You can be for it, fine, but don't deny or spin that there are not serious consequences. Some fantasy that something for nothing.
