Let the layoffs begin! Or: You get what you vote for
Elections have consequences. We tried to tell you that, DUmmies. Governor Romney tried to tell you that. He said that Obamacare would be a jobs-killer. But did you believe him? Did you believe us? NOOO!! Well, guess what? Now that your beloved Barack managed to come up with enough votes in Florida, Ohio, and Virginia to get his sorry ass re-elected--which means that Obamacare now will not be reversed in the foreseeable future--guess what has started to happen, even starting the day after the election? That's right. Let the layoffs begin! You see, DUmmies, you get what you vote for.
The DUmmies are STUNED that such a thing could happen, as we see in this THREAD, "Vegas Employer: Obama Won–So I Fired 22 Employees." That evil, evil employer! How DARE he try to stay in business, much less make a profit! The dopes in DUmmieland cannot seem to make the connection that when the government increases the cost of doing business, either the business will try to find ways to compensate or else the business will go out of business. Duh! Or, I should say, DUh!
So let us now enter the world of the dense-headed denizens of the DUmp, in Bread Line Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--telling the DUmmies, "Obama Recession Part Two? You OWN it!"--is in the [brackets]:
Vegas Employer: Obama Won–So I Fired 22 Employees
[What Obamacare does in Las Vegas, ends in lost wages.]
A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election. . . . "I explained to them a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obamacare are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do. . . ."
[Wow. Who could have seen this coming? Why, as a matter of fact, WE did. And we told you. But did you listen?]
Wow, just... wow. No words.
[Wow, just . . . two words: Obama. Care.]
Doubt this is even true. . . .
[If I pretend hard enough this didn't happen, then . . . it didn't happen!]
Will probably be hearing lots more of these "scary" stories in the next few weeks. . . .
[Try, the next few DAYS.]
I'd like to see a headline...that reads...Business Owner - "Obama won so I hired 22+ people"
[I hear the repo companies are hiring.]
Like he'd ever have 22 people he didn't actually need to run his business. . . .
if he fired 22, that would be because of waste.... unneeded employment.
[Or--now follow me on this--he could handle those 22 employees BEFORE, but NOW, because of the added cost of Obamacare, he has to scale back. Have you considered that? I know, that requires thinking, and thinking is hard. . . .]
I suspect Mr. X's business is located at the base of Bullsh*t Mountain.
[No, actually, it's located at the base of Costs Mountin'.]
Your employer can dump you anytime they want. Unless you are union you are one minute away from your last paycheck if your boss decides it is so. Without Obama Care you and your family are sh*t out of luck. I think he just illustrated why the ACA is so important.
[So let me see if I follow you on this. . . . Obamacare's costs may cause your employer to lay you off. In which case, you'll be out of work and . . . and you'll need Obamacare! Yes, just brilliant!]
most of obamacare not even underway yet, so this is pure BS. . . .
[Yes, pure BS! Whoever heard of a businessman planning ahead, taking steps to meet a looming crisis? That's just crazy!]
when you own a business, you do what you gotta do to survive.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
F the employer, the employees make the bussiness mostly anyway. . . .
[Who needs employers anyway? Employees can just employ themselves!]
No law has changed from yesterday to today.
[Hello!! Earth to DUmmie! What HAS changed is the chance of Obamacare being repealed in the near future. Is this too hard for you? You ARE able to tie your shoes, aren't you?]
If an employer says that they have to cut back the number of employees as a business decision, they are free to do that. . . . His public reason why was because since Obama won, he needed to cut expenses now in order to be prepared for higher expenses later.
[But, but . . . IT'S NOT FAIR!!! WAAAHHHH!!!!]
his explanation for the firings was not that they were politically based, but were based on his belief that health care reform will adversely impact his bottom line and that, given the results of the election, that isn't going to change.
[It finally looks like comprehension is beginning to set in.]
What a POS.
[I know. Obama really is a-- No, wait. I think you're referring to the business owner.]
I call total and utter BS on the entire story. . . . I could call my local talk radio and claim to be the Cat God Bastet (from ancient Egypt). Wouldn't make it true.
[No, of course not. We all know you're really the Moonbat Goddess DUmeter (from ancient Babbleloonia).]
What an @sshole!!!!
[LEAVE BARACK ALONE!!!]
If this is true, his ability to do MORE business has just been curtailed. And the employees he has left are going to be overburdened and may burn out.
[By George, I think you're beginning to get it! . . . Which reminds me. This must be Bush's fault. Yep, Obamacare is Bush's fault.]
Needs his business confiscated. Since he can't run it properly and uses it to punish his employees, he shouldn't be allowed to own it. The State or City needs to confiscate under eminent domain and give it to someone responsible who will show more concern for the community.
[DUmmie TRJuan (14 posts), while I appreciate the effort, and that's CLOSE to what a real DUmmie might say, I think you're being just a LITTLE too over the top to not be spotted as a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!! Nice try, though!]
sorry, but that's just ridiculous. . . .
[See what I mean?]
There were reports of this from other states on Freerepublic. None of them had enough information to research at all, so it's all just bullsh*t to try and scare Obama supporters.
[Actually, DUmmie Kablooie, the reports of massive layoffs, from multiple businesses, have now started to POUR in, from all across the country.]
Translation: I am a sh*tty businessman who's failed and is now scapegoating the black guy.
[Translation of DUmmie post: When all else fails, play the race card.]
Looks like another one is making excuses. . . . EAST CARBON, Carbon County — A Utah coal company owned by a vocal critic of President Barack Obama has laid off 102 miners. The layoffs at the West Ridge Mine are effective immediately. . . . They were announced in a short statement made public Thursday, two days after Obama won re-election. The layoffs are necessary because of the president's "war on coal," the statement said. . . . In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down "204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014" and for drastically reducing the market for coal.
[Obama is out to destroy the coal industry. Obama wins the election. Coal company takes measures to deal with the impending crisis. But, no, it's just "making excuses."]
[And so it begins: Layoffs. Reductions in force. Cutbacks in hours. Loss of benefits. We warned you. But, hey, you wanted to make sure Ol' Mattressback, Sandra Fluke, could get her free birth control! So thanks, DUmmies! Thanks for playing . . . YOU VOTED FOR IT!]
