-- We -- and she's worried Health Care Reform will put her out of business what does she think now after confronting President Obama.
One of the greatest some presence on the face of the earth what in the world did that just say I'm -- Let that affect you and yes it is I've heard Joe The Plumber you're becoming patted the PR chick.
How did he respond when you -- point your finger -- said.
I'm worried about being driven out of business -- -- with the national Health Care Reform bill.
You know President Obama was absolutely gracious he was genuinely concerned.
About my concerns.
In fact one -- the -- I told I was concerned about my taxes going up and he told me.
That the tax credits would offset any increase -- I had and taxes and so.
Not thinking I just point my finger at him and said block and hold -- for that and he started laughing I think -- laughing and he's been OK I think I -- I really need it.
I -- you to do that so I look at the F one question but I have other concerns but but he I -- very impressed with the president.
So patty I'm so happy that you got to actually do well -- little lobbying for small businesses on the -- -- nice to have a little defense for the small guy but the same time.
If you're going to get the tax offsets -- -- who's gonna pay for this is -- going to be -- speed workers who work for you are going to be the giant corporations.
Gonna have been praying for all this and you just got and an assurance that it -- not you.
Well you know what what I'm really concerned about is I'm not sure how many get those -- credit.
I can do about it -- an accountant I'm a PR person.
But you know if you think about it I -- my company is as subchapter path so that means that all of the the revenue I get it gets texted me individually.
So how -- -- going is the government going to allow me to apply those tax credits.
To my individual -- that's what's really up concerns so it felt great to talk about tax credits but will that really happen.
So adding -- nineteen employees he sent us -- them are pretty young.
I've seen -- -- about giving them allowance that they can choose their own individual policies will.
What is -- your optimal scenario here what do you want.
I I would love to see Health Care Reform.
But I don't think we need to have Health Care Reform by September 1 -- -- for the -- overnight.
And we're not gonna get out of it overnight my biggest fear.
Is that if we enact something right now we're gonna end up with something like PSK and then we're gonna have the same indignities like we do at the airport will be up to get patted down.
And take everything apart and then heavy and big -- of walking barefoot.
At the airport that's what -- if I'm afraid we're gonna have some big bloated program.
-- -- so let me ask you this I mean if you could opt out of this program and paid 8%.
Payroll tax type -- -- have you thought about doing that it would look that crossed your I don't know your border in my RV Darby run your business.
Are you not -- I -- -- that's ID card.
You have papers that.
And this is that's my big concern is this isn't about me and it isn't about my company what this is about is that small -- -- the beat at the table.
They need -- -- -- because they all covered here is about -- Wall Street I'm talking about main street this company this country would fill.
On small business and kinda seems to have forgotten that.
Northern guys who who are keeping -- caddie going and where the ones -- -- growing the economy.
I totally agree with visual then I got to ask you did you vote for any Republican or any Democrat the last election because it's the Republicans and Democrats that took the trillion dollars that we could use the -- health -- up front -- all -- Instead they sent to the crooks on Wall Street -- destroyed our economy.

Highly -- -- McCain but I I have to tell you that I did.
I -- vote for Democrat the -- election night but I voted for -- governor Beverly Perdue who is.
But I I act I'm convinced she did Republican he just doesn't know it yeah.
