Nice story. Maybe it was just a ploy to try to get votes to the Romney camp. (I think his wife needs to cover up that cleavage!)

That cleavage is probably her only claim to fame. Sorry, but I just couldn't resist!

Cover it up, Mrs. Billionaire! Apparently, the rich may have money, but lack "class".

Chris C. I'd like to send you a green star but can't yet. Thanks for the post, Carrie, I had not heard that he changed his mind. It's a good thing.

Mr Siegel you must of heard how much people were angered with you - you had a change of heart so maybe you have a conceince. Donald Thump and Steve Whine, what is the matter with you guys...are you true Americans..sure maybe it was rough when you started out and you made it..but you can't take it with you when your time comes..so maybe help your country out and you will always be remembered for that.

I love this BS argument they have been making. If the costs associated with doing business go up, how does it benefit your company to reduce the workforce, which would in turn, reduce the amount of money you can make? If anything, it would require you to increase your workforce, so you can be more productive (assuming that your company is properly operating to begin with). And any billionaire scumbag who can build a 90k sq ft home clearly has more than enough profit margin that he can afford a small tax bill without going into the red. As long as CEO's/owners/shareholders are raking in billions of dollars in PROFIT, they can afford to give a little back.

The first casualty of war is TRUTH. In politics TRUTH is a changeable commodity too elusive to become a casualty

""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."

+++++++++++++++ OH, NOOOOO! You mean, if he has to pay his FAIR SHARE of taxes, he might not be able to afford the trophy wife & obscenely massive home without laying off his employees?

Sounds as if his GREED is talking.....

Siegel gave his employees raises to help them "handle the additional burdens the government will put on them." So he's still talking trash about the Obama Administration. What a creep.

I wish all the billionaires would have a change of heart and pitch in to help our country. You can't take it with you guys, so why not help.

ouch! Losing the election bet must have hurt. Opening his mouth must have hurt business a tad bit..ya think? Go run after your customers buddy, next time..don't take your vemon out on your employees.

Noted, tweeted, tweeted, and shared. Miracles happen; rich Republicans actually gave workers a raise after promising to fire them. This is better than fiction.
