Park City Resort Owner to Fire Staff if Obama WinsBy Steve Casimiro on October 12th, 2012
Talk about scare tactics. The gazillionaire owner of the Westgate Park City Resort (not to be confused with the ski area), who’s best known for building the largest new private home in United States, the 90,000-square-foot Florida Versailles, told his 7,000 employees that if Obama wins reelection and raises taxes on the rich, he’s going to eliminate jobs. “If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will have no choice but to reduce the size of this company,” David Siegel wrote in a letter. Siegel’s missive is unlikely to generate much sympathy from his workers, as it’s mostly one long complaint about how unappreciated the super-rich are. “They want you to believe that we live in a class system where the rich get richer, the poor get poorer.

Square. Feet. Via Salt Lake Tribune.
