I still own a business, I still have 10 employees, I plan on adding more. I don't personally make over $250,000 a year. I will not be affected by the tax hike. Sometimes it's hard, I agree to that, but the payoff is that it's rewarding.
The idea of a "small" business shutting down because of a tax hike on individuals making over $250k is absurd. This ad from the same folks that say, "you have to work hard to succeed" - but them I'm also hearing, "if I don't get to personally make well-over $250,000 a year, without paying more takes (only on the amount over $250 no less ), I'll have to close up shop". I call shenanigans.
