As for the cost of doing business, you may have missed Exxon's quarterly report. Business is doing very well. They're just taking bonuses and salting the money away instead of creating jobs. As for Obama care, it hasn't cost one red cent to anybody yet so that a pretty poor excuse. As for taxes and them being called for by someone who "has never run a business in his life" you might be interested in this from a guy who has run a few: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44143776/ns/business-personal_finance/ And BTW, you might want to study your American history books a bit more. Hawaii is one of our states, although he couldn't see Russia from his back deck with a cup of tea in hand. Hate the rich? No. I have tremendous respect for those who pull themselves up by their bootstraps and find success. Have no use for the greedy and find them to be a drain on the human race? Absolutely.
