not scared - probably in cash paring down there businesses and cutting expenses down to the bone - your job is the next to go! Hope you don't have kids ready to graduate - this guarantees no jobs for them! See the problem is you will never be wealthy because you do not understand how wealth is created - At least you can expect unemployment benefits for as long as the Fed can print money because revenus to the treasury will plummet as they always do when taxes are raised - worse now because no one will rush to sell and take advantage of the lower capital gains rate now - no gains left dividends getting cut -things aren't looking good for wage earners (will be the only one's left to tax)!!!! so keep on laughing!!!!!!!!
