    You happen to be a generous employer. Which I would think works to your benefit in the long term with lower employee overturn.

    I pay the best and I expect the best.... It has served me well.

    Here's the really troubling part, from a NYT article on the same subject

    The surtax would apply to any adjusted gross income exceeding $280,000 a year for an individual and $350,000 for a couple filing a joint return. The tax rates would range from 1 percent to 5.4 percent.

    ...

    The additional tax on high-income people could rise significantly in 2013 if the federal government did not achieve specified savings in federal health programs like Medicare and Medicaid.
    Yea, I'm really ****ing betting that the government is going to achieve those "specified savings." What this is is a backdoor tax, passing it without all the political pain now, and then letting the higher rate kick in later.

    If they pass this, they're raising taxes a ****load more than they're pretending to. **** this.

    That was a given when I read that last night.

    There hasn't been a spending projection by the government that has been on target. At least nothing I can think of.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    We recently had to put 70% of our people on contract, from home and even though business is booming, its a step forward step back game month to month.
    I'm what Willis was talkin' bout.
