An open letter to rich business owners

Dear wealthy people who are threatening to cut wages, add surcharges, and cut hours because you think healthcare reform might cost you more money:

I accept that you’re currently making money not from what you do yourself, but for what your employees do for you. Capitalism, hoo-rah, and all that.

Now, though…now you’re being spoiled brats.

Your profit margin that comes from other people’s hard work won’t be quite as big.

That’s what these shenanigans are about. Not that you’ll lose money. No, not that. You just won’t make quite as much.

And to stress the point, you won’t make quite as much from other people’s hard work.

You’re being whiny spoiled brats.

Grow up.
