We're not millionaires and not making $250K, but we do have a gardener and have had a housecleaning team come once a month or so - hired them 4 years ago when we had our 3rd child to help offload some of the housework. We'll be letting both go in Jan. Both hardworking minorities. Bummer, but we're able bodied and when the gov't puts the squeeze on us, we'll be trimming where we can trim. And liberals think that "trickle down" economics is bunk? They're about to be re-schooled in reality.
