Timeshare mogul threatens to lay employees under second Obama term
Fox News – 10/9/2012
Timeshare mogul and "King of Versailles" himself, David Siegel, has threatened layoffs should President Barack Obama win a second term. His letter was posted in the Orlando Sentinel, sent to him 7000 employees and Fox News. His lengthy explanation details his 42 years of hard work and that a second term by President Obama will destroy all incentive to grow his business, leading to diminished employment opportunities and layoff of his employees. Copied below are the concluding paragraphs of his detailed explanation.
So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company. Rather than grow this company I will be forced to cut back. This means fewer jobs, less benefits and certainly less opportunity for everyone.
So, when you make your decision to vote, ask yourself, which candidate understands the economics of business ownership and who doesn't? Whose policies will endanger your job? Answer those questions and you should know who might be the one capable of protecting and saving your job. While the media wants to tell you to believe the "1 percenters" are bad, I'm telling you they are not. They create most of the jobs. If you lose your job, it won't be at the hands of the "1%"; it will be at the hands of a political hurricane that swept through this country.
You see, I can no longer support a system that penalizes the productive and gives to the unproductive. My motivation to work and to provide jobs will be destroyed, and with it, so will your opportunities. If that happens, you can find me in the
