Well, I don't know what business you are in, but I do know this. I do not own a business, but I am intimately involved in running an automotive repair facility. I know, for a fact, that there are times when we have had to raise prices, just to be able to make up some of the losses we incur from too much taxation and regulation. If we didn't we would be working just to pay the government. Somehow, I don't think that's how our founding fathers envisioned the relationship between our economy and our government.
