Mike, I appreciate you advancing the debate. My point in bringing this business owners actions to light here was not to support his actions, but to point out that right or wrong, ethical or unethical, stupid or brilliant THIS guy (and I suspect many other business owners) will say "I'm Done" or "I'm Cutting Back" as a result of Obama’s tax and regulation policies. They don’t care what the marginal tax rates were 40 years ago. Sure, someone else may step into the void created by this guys business decisions, but that don’t help the folks who lose their jobs when he folds his tent and retires to St Kitts.

Oh...and Mr. Seigle just guaranteed himself an IRS sponsored colonoscopy.

this is the genius who claims that he was responsible for GWB getting elected in 2000. How did that work out for the economy?

Thanks for the laugh Paul. The IRS comment cracked me up.

If you taxed everyone in this country who earns over $380K at 100%, it would barely give the Federal Government the revenues it needs to balance its annual budget. (Wall Street Journal study based on 2008 IRS data - and in 2008, there were many more people above that income level than there are today). By confiscating 100% of this group's money to pay for Federal outlays, however, you'd not only cripple the wealth-producing segment of society, but also starve states, counties, cities and towns of badly needed revenues for their budgets. The only alternative is to reach into the pockets of people below $380K. That's where the money is.
