The Obama Care Ax Falls Close to Home....

Massive Layoffs as Obamacare Looms


I ran into my neighbor this morning. We exchanged pleasantries for a moment and when I asked how things were I was told they were laid-off yesterday.

They have worked at a medical device manufacturer for 30 plus years and lo and behold just after the election they are out on the street.

I know they are Obama voters and I'm pretty sure they were on Tuesday.

When I spoke up and said "That sucks, I have heard that there will be lots of layoffs in the medical device manufacturing field due to the huge tax burden coming with Obama care"

I was told "That's not it, it's greedy corporations trying to increase profits"

I wished them well and was on my way.

It sucks when you lose your job especially after 30 plus years BUT I can't help but think to myself
that THIS is what YOU voted for.

This says it all:

  4. You can't reason with them. They have no concept of personal cause/effect. It's always someone else that is causing the negative effect. My only consolation is the coming exhibition of Darwinism.

  5. I have ZERO sympathy for Obama voters who get laid off thanks to his policies. Hope those free condoms and Obamaphones were worth it.

  7. I hate how those rich bastards selfishly try to keep their companies limping along and rake in all those dollars by not having people make the things they sell. Seriously, how does someone miss that point? When you have less manufacturing ability, you make less money, ergo, layoffs=less profit.
    Duh.

  8. Yep. My husband has a few casual friends who voted for Obama and have either been laid off or lost their healthcare.
