Girl who dances in a cage

Don't know exactly how this works but...

Thank god thank god thank god thank god thank god. Honestly, in the past, who the president is has had almost no effect on my life at all. I've worked simple jobs with free (provided by employer) or easy to pay for health insurance in a small tax bracket that really didn't change even with tax increases. Now that I have a business, the state of the economy and the affordability of health insurance means the difference between losing everything and going bankrupt or continuing to thrive and hire more people and live my dream. For once in my life, the decisions of the person in office can effect me directly. I feel a little bit safer and more secure now.

We got the news from one of my students in class, who checked her blackberry (or some such device) for the results. I immediately began jumping up and down until I saw the disappointed look on my other instructor's face. I didn't realize until that moment that she was a republican. She said to me, "You know, your taxes are going to go up now." My response was simple, I don't care how much they raise my taxes IF they keep the economy from tanking any further. I have no idea if taxes and the economy are linked. Can anyone tell me? But from now on, my primary concern is that the economy remains steady or improves so that people can continue to afford my classes as they can now.
