As a small retail business owner I’m not feeling the love promised by both President Obama and Gov. Scott on Election Day. Obama’s view toward spending regardless of income, sure feels like my ex-wife. And, his new healthcare plan is exacerbating my little company’s rising medical costs at the same time that he’s endorsing a significant increase in minimum wage and demanding more personal taxes.
Scott continues to abuse and bully me at every turn including property taxes, the business asset tax and permit costs.
Obama and Scott should simply decide how much of our money they want to take for their boondoggles and turn it into a percentage of my retail sales so that I can collect it along with sales tax.
I would dutifully collect the normal sales tax on every purchase and then collect, another let’s say 2 percent on every sale for the “boondoggle tax,” send it to whomever and let Obama and Scott spend away. But let me operate like a business.
