Flying Over Obamaville

A business owner explains why he isn't hiring to law professor and novelist Stephen Carter. To his credit, Carter, no conservative he, listens and reports it well.
The man in the aisle seat is trying to tell me why he refuses to hire anybody. His business is successful, he says, as the 737 cruises smoothly eastward. Demand for his product is up. But he still won’t hire.
“Why not?”

“Because I don’t know how much it will cost,” he explains. “How can I hire new workers today, when I don’t know how much they will cost me tomorrow?”

Must not be a very good businessman to NOT be able to figure out his overhead costs....
