Doesn't add up

Re " 'Class warfare' shots," Letters, March 3

A letter writer who runs a small business states that she will lay off staff in order to avoid paying what amounts to a 4.6% increase in her taxes on the $50,000 her family earns over the $250,000 limit.

I can only assume that she is foggy on the details of President Obama's new tax code. Or perhaps she is lying. To put employees in the unemployment line, plus give up tens of thousands in net income because she might have to pay an additional $2,300 in taxes, is just stupid.
