Small Business Owner Gives Obama a Piece of His Mind

By  | 

Fox Business – Some U.S. business owners got a chance Monday to meet with White House advisors and give their own take on the fiscal cliff, tax hikes and more.

Among the entrepreneurs invited to the discussion was Drew Greenblatt, president of Marlin Steel ( ) — a small business in Baltimore, Md.It was unclear at press time if President Obama attended the meeting.

Ahead of the meeting, Greenblatt said he has one thing on his mind.

“We’ve got to increase job creation, fast,” he told FOX Business. “This recession has gone on too long, and now is the time for us to turn it around by creating certainty.”

As for those looming tax increases for those making above $250,000 annually, Greenblatt said he was going to deliver a message that the move would stunt economic growth and hiring. American factories, he said, are one example of a small business that pays taxes on a personal level of income. Increasing their tax rate will deter potential for economic gains.

    That is what Romney said.
    Maybe the voters should have listened to him, and he is not the only one that said it. Even obama`s own economists said it, but he did not listen either.
    The liberal-communist mindset is, it has to be their way or the economy can bottom out at everyone`s expense.
    Just tax the rich until they are no longer rich, destroy the middle class, and make the poor poorer. In the process ruin the nation, make it a third world country. That is the communist way, wake up America before you loose your country and your freedoms.

    Explaining facts of business to nobama and his band of theives is like talking to a brick wall: 1) he has not the slightest idea how a business runs. 2) not increasing taxes (and no matter the B/S he claims he won’t) on everyone in one form or another does not work into the demoncats TAX AND SPEND POLICY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
