I'm not this isn't so -- taunting the president this time in New Hampshire the small business -- putting up a sign.
We didn't build it signed right in front of the president's motorcade route on Saturday -- -- CEO president AJ lift to -- sales and marketing trying to spitting -- out.
Good evening Greta.
-- -- what provoked putting up -- sign.
Well I I think like a lot of business people in America.
I was just completely.
Incensed with the president's remarks that.
If you build the business -- if you have a business you didn't -- that somebody else felt that.
And I couldn't believe it you know -- idea I built my business along with Mike my family and my team and I could not believe that the president would make remark like that.
And we want to have an opportunity to let him know that yes we did build our business so he was passing by our place and we -- put a sign up to let him know.
-- to get under your skin so much Minnesota going out now for about a month.
What Greta you you know it's.
It's something that we've worked really hard and we've built our business I mean we've we've had the sleepless night staying up taking the risk.
Doing everything that we've had to do to struggle to make ends meet to pass -- budget to -- within our own company.
And makes our business work and -- and he has -- present -- United States that.
Even -- his own party.
In control cannot even pass a budget after being in office for three years so here's a guy who doesn't seem to understand what we do in business.
And and he has the -- density to to tell us that if if -- built something we didn't we didn't build it and now expects us and ends -- a -- to pay a higher amount of taxes and Marty pain.
It's just something that flies in the face of those of us who struggle and work hard and our business every day.
-- this is -- on.
It's a wholesale food sales and marketing agency we've been a business now and -- for 24 years.
We actually our family's been in the food industry for a hundred years this yeses are -- -- and in the food industry.
124 years since my wife Patti and I started the company.
-- this has been doing in the last.
Well you know we're fortunate of all the businesses that we can be and -- and have a business that that people have to eat so it of all the different types of businesses to be and I'm happy to be in the food business at this time but it is a struggle.
It's a very competitive industry.
It's something that we have to work -- and keep our pencils sharpened watch everything we do every day.
What could the president have done to make -- what would you like to see happen so that you feel like you're you know be a real boost your business and have freed up to do to do better what what he needs.
What I think the president that a lot of those who are like minded to him have a design on how they would like things to go in and as a government.
Government tends to interfere in what.
Is the engine of our economy and business they they don't do a good job about it.
In our company we we worked very hard to deliver very competitive service and to do so.
While compensating our employees fairly.
And competitively and working on razor thin margin say -- to get done what we have to do.
-- to have a government -- -- heavy hand of the government coming down on what we're doing.
And in and I informed way does nothing but but hurt us and when -- look at what's happening with.
The Obama care I I I can't believe what I see coming.
We offer health insurance that to all of our full time employees and pay for -- 100% along with health care savings plans.
We we are -- doing what I think is.
What what is.
Hope to be done for for businesses across country and keep I see extra -- coming our way in and I see the president.
Saying that were not paying enough taxes -- we're already paying huge amount of taxes and -- and now our business and I don't think it's good.
Given idea I'm in the best -- give any -- cents -- in my eyes and ears on the ground New Hampshire do you know any people who voted Democrat who are now -- either Republican.
-- our vice adversity give me a sense of where New Hampshire is going.
Greta -- I spent most of my time in my in my business.
Selling the product that I I represent whether it's Turkey breast or potato salad or whatever it is that -- LC paid a bill so I'm not out there on the street every day with us.
-- tell you as a result of -- putting our sign up and holding the front -- the motorcade in getting getting lots of attention from that I've received thousands of phone calls today most of which I have not been able to answer because I was working today.
I have had people come out and tell me how much they support what I said in that I speak.
And I'm very honored and humbled by that -- I've received calls not only from people.
Or local to me -- New Hampshire but I've received calls from coffee shop owners in California and and now body shop workers and now -- Virginia.
I just received one phone call after the next in his fifth of that of all the emails and calls that I received it's it's all the same thing that people are frustrated.
And guys seem to have struck.
A nerve with a lot of other much -- out there.
They -- thank.
