Business Executives: Here's how to decide who to lay off in the Obama tax increases

A Small business answer to our current economic situation

Fellow Business Executives:
As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned
myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our next President, and that
our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.
To compensate for these increases, I figure that our Clients will have
to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8%, but since we cannot
increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we
will have to lay off six of our employees instead.  This has really been
eating at me for a while as we believe we are a family here and I didn't
know how to choose who will have to go.

So, this is what I did.  I strolled thru our parking lot and found 8
Obama bumper stickers on our employee's cars and have decided these
folks will be the first to be laid off.  I can't think of a more fair
way to approach this problem.  These folks wanted change; I gave it to
If you have a better idea, let me know.
Sincerely, Mgmt=============

Thanks Tim ;-)
