  •  One of my clients thinks this is a swell idea... (1+ / 0-)

    The client, a construction contractor, announced yesterday in a meeting that all marketing materials, contracts, invoices, etc., are to now contain a paragraph in bold letters explaining that massive price increases are coming because of the "business-killing effects of Obamacare". I spoke up in the meeting to explain that, a) from a marketing standpoint, that hadn't worked out too well for Papa Johns, etc., and b) our coming price increases actually had very little if anything to do with healthcare reform. As the sole progressive in the room, I was overruled, of course--but at least my protest is now part of the permanent company record, so I have something with which to cudgel them when the plan backfires...
