You pay those people a wage of 36,000 a year, not exactly an extravagant wage. Since you're an egalitarian sort, you even only pay yourself that same \$36,000. Congratulations! You're at \$252,000 in payroll and get to make a contribution. And that's without even considering loaded costs or other costs of doing business. ‎"Is that suck and salvage the Kevin Costner method?" - Chris Matthews on Hardball, July 6, 2010.

As we just saw with the GM bailout, our government believes some businesses are just too big to fail. Unfortunately, this is another sign they also believe some companies are too small to succeed. That proposition is completely backwards in an environment where you actually want to grow the economy.
