This is all relative. Our living standards are better than the majority of the world. Poor generic American who is making 30k this year instead of 40k. I guess you can't buy your Ipad or eat out every weekend.

Well there's profits (which you are referring to) and profits after taxes. Taxes are a expense.

OK but the idea that they can't afford to keep their workers because of higher taxes is what I'm talking about. They can argue that it reduces their incentive to grow (though I doubt it actually does in 99% of cases and the historical record shows that the economy has done very well with much higher taxes than we have currently), but higher taxes doesn't make it so they can no longer afford to keep people hired.

It might mean they can make more money doing something else though. If taxes knock their profits down to 1 million from 1.5 million, they might say screw it.. I'd rather just invest my money and save the time. Know what I'm saying? Opportunity cost.

The could have chosen to threaten his employees because of how they would vote on abortion or war with Iran and the principle is the same, it's anti-democratic.

There's really no way to spin this. Whether or not Obama's policies would lead him to the decision to cut jobs is irrelevant; this is the United States of America FFS. You should be able to go to work and not receive veiled threats against your job unless you vote a certain way. Personally I feel any workplace memorandum discussing political views is unprofessional, but since he was obviously hellbent on doing this, he couldn't have just outlined why he felt Romney's policies would be better for the company on the whole? Instead of saying that if Obama is elected you can start to fear for your jobs? Come on.

Ok. Doesn't make my post any less true. Government influences how companies operate. Can't blame the business. It starts at the government.

I'm really not getting your point.

Not exactly Hawkboy, corporations actually wield greater influence on government than the other way around, taxation and regulation is a small part of the big picture, and they are accounted for the same way as any other road block while building or operating a business.

Presenting these government implementations as company killers is nonsense, there are many more difficult challenges that businesses face.
