Dear President Obama –

Just watched 60 minutes, and have a quick comment:

As an Entrepreneur running a 20+ person, profitable, tech company: the logic around increasing $250k+ households from 33% to 36% hurting entrepreneurship and small business makes no sense to me as an entrepreneur in the process of growing a business.

Am personally no where near a $250k salary but if you told me that the government would take over 80% of my yearly revenue at $250k+, I would still do what I do because entrepreneurship isn’t about money, it’s about having the liberty to pursue something you’re passionate about. The government has provided a framework for me to do that and am appreciative for this. If it only means I have to pay 3% more at a much later date, so be it.

What has affected my startup, Viddler, that comes from the government has been the state ran organization: Ben Franklin Technology Partners, as they were one of our first investors. Viddler wouldn’t have existed without them.

Also, after reading much on different posts about the tax cuts, I know the upper-middle class has a different and valid opinion in expensive areas (NYC, Bay Area). Maybe you could figure a way to have it be more fair for households in expensive to live locations.

Best,

Rob

    Quite often large corporations moderate salary for employees based on their residence location. While employees in more expensive locations may command a higher salary there would be less incentive to live in those locations if salary became equivalent in less expensive locations.
