Death spiral: Hours cut, workers pushed to part-time due to Obamacare; ‘They keep cutting my hours’

As Twitchy has been reporting, the layoff bomb has detonated. Many companies, both large and small, have been forced to lay off workers due to President Obama’s re-election. With no hope of Obamacare being repealed, they are now forced to lay off employees in order to stay in business.

But it’s not just layoffs. Some companies are also contemplating cutting hours. Sadly, many companies have already done so.

Part-time is the new full-time in Obamaville.

This doesn’t just hurt the workers, who now have to try to live on a far more meager salary. It hurts the country as a whole.

Death spiral, indeed. The layoff bomb detonated and the collateral damage is vast.

Bingo. And the hits keep coming. These Twitter users give first-hand reports of companies cutting hours. And relay devastating tales of trying to make do when their hours have been cut drastically.

Tragically, this doesn’t seem likely to change any time soon.

    There ya go. I’m sure Uncle Obama understands as he’s working so hard on the golf course while the country is now in an uproar. But hey, you won, right?

    • jadedhorse

      Oh god i love the uncle obama meme. Just watched the fall of the 3rd reich on history 2 last night. they were reading letters sent to hitler on his B day and one was addressed to ” uncle Hitler” OMG too funny how the leftists fell right into that trap

    • r_coplin2001

      At least President Obama caddie still has a job

  • Lisa

    Poor Libs. maybe they should have been, ya know, INFORMED before they voted!

    • conservativechick

      If ONLY a few of them had actually read and understood Obamacare, maybe they would realize what’s happening. WAIT until the can’t even find a PRIMARY care physician, let alone a specialist! Reserved for ONLY those evil RICH types under Obamacare. Oh, the IRONY!

      • lillymckim

        Yes! Oh, the IRONY!

      • News Reporter

        Hey Karl Rove, why don’t you spend $400 million explaining how and why ObamaCare is causing loss of jobs and lowered hours for these stupid liberal voters. Or BUY their votes by paying them to run around registering Republican voters. Maybe by 2014 you’ll have a Republican majority in the Senate.

    • aragona

      I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I didn’t give to the Sandy relief fund this time. Liberals love government. These are liberal areas. We have FEMA. The government can take care of these people. It isn’t enough and FEMA isn’t going to get it done but until consequences are paid, people don’t learn.

      • JamesandLoretta

        while they still wait 2 weeks later for our wonderful president to come rescue them.

          New York helped build the Obama nightmare. Let them all freeze to death. America hates them.

          • TundraThunder

            There are a lot of people there who didn’t vote for Obama. And don’t wish death to people! That’s not how we conservatives should talk, think, or act!

          • Ironhawk86

            True but the suckiness of the East Coast is something that goes beyond politics. And I’m saying this as someone who grew up in the loony left stronghold that is the Bay Area.

            Thank you

          • Netmilsmom

            I don’t wish death on anyone, I wish enlightenment. I prayed before the election that there would be NO fraud (that didn’t work) and that people would wise up to the pain they were going to feel after 4 more years. God has a bigger plan.

          • Eric Jablow

            You’ll find Staten Island is not a hotbed of Obamans.

          • Marcy Cook

            Tom I’m in NY and believe me I didn’t vote for obama TWICE. I don’t know what is wrong with people in this state. Westchester County which is the richest county in the US voted 80% for obama. I just don’t understand. Don’t they know what is going to happen to them?

        • hydrangea1

          Yeah, now that “wonderful” president OWNS the economy. I was devastated when Obama was re-elected, but I am rethinking it. To the main stream media, Romney would have been to blame for the economy if he had won. The messiah won, so now it’s HIS BABY! Let’s see just how well he handles it! No more blaming George Bush!

          • Susan Warner

            I have had mixed feelings re: Obama win… of course I would have preferred Romney, but now O is not going to have anyone to blame for the mess we are in…. of course he can still blame Bush!!! Money from the rich people and big companies will now find other countries to invest in that are much kinder to their efforts. Rich people and big companies are GOOD for a growing economy….. unfortunately half the people in this country dont get it!

          • Penmar

            He is going to blame Bush for all of his 8 yrs in office.

          • Janet Silverstein

            But that is the difference between the Dem and Rep. Rep are self-reliant and realize the only way for them to succeed is in their own hands. Failures are acknowledged and we trudge on to find ways to success. Failures are never owned by the Dems, always a scapegoat. Maybe that’s why they keep failing.

          • mh

            sadly, they are not failing! they won every swing state! tells me the electorate is EXACTLY where the dems want them. to watch these same losers bitch and moan here about hours being cut is just plain laughable and of course it is the evil employers doing this to get back at them for the obama win and has zero to do with employee costs, right?

          • Lenny Beard

            Of course they all voted 3 or 4 times in the swing states….140% of the population voted! Impossible!

          • Sheldon Cooper

            Almost makes me wish we had all voted a straight dem ticket and let the implosion happen at light speed.

          • sgb1

            I wanted to put a Republican in the Senate. He is actually a TP.

          • Nurse50carol

            I guess it’s in O’s genes–even though he didn’t really know his father accordig to David Maranis’s book Barack Obama the Story–sounds like the “ole man” had a habit of blaming others for his mis-steps–it was NEVER his fault!!!

          • sgb1

            I would have preferred Romney too. I think, though, that you are right. The MSM would have harrassed him and criticized every move he made, just like with Bush. They are awful since they cover up for Obama and make up lies about anyone else. We are not watching any of them.

          • James Paul

            No, nothing will ever be Obama’s fault. CNN will just flat out lie about everything. They already went in to 1984 mode during the election. Obama at a campaign event told the people he has reduced the deficit more then any president in history and the main stream media praised his speaking skills. Everything will be someone else’s fault. They will probably sue the companies for reducing hours. North Korea’s economic recovery has been just around the corner for about 60 years now, it will be the same with obama….

          • Chris

            They’ll still blame Bush. There was some Dem on TV who said they’d blame him “forever”.

          • padeeya

            I watched a special with Bret Baier on all the cities in america that are bankrupt or filing for bankruptcy, not one of them had a republican in sight to blame, and like the good libs that they are, they blamed the previous lib that held office, so really it doesn’t matter, they will still pass the blame.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            That was Maxine Waters, or Sheila Jackson Lee. Maybe even Nancy Peloony…

          • mh

            of course they will. however the real problem is that much of the electorate is stupid enough to keep buying that excuse. fucking retarded people there are out there anymore..

          • sickofgovt.


          • mh

            well really let’s be thankful they dont as they would think of some other fucked up monster like obamacare to put upon us. be thankful the house will mitigate some of the shit we’d otherwise have shoved down our throats. the thought of that foul pig pelosi back in speaker role is enough to make me insane…

          • Michael D. Stephenson

            Don’t know what excuse he’ll use. Won’t be Bush but he will find someone else to blame. Wait and see. This guy is expert at not taking any responsibility for his actions. It’s always someone else’s fault. And he’ll still have the media covering for him.

          • lgaston83

            Yep, it will be someone else’s blame about the Benghazi attacks too! He’ll play stupid! Oh, wait, he doesn’t have to PLAY stupid! I have NO repect for this president in the least form or fashion!!!

          • Peranut Pam Norman

            But the will blame Bush…LOL

          • Kylabee

            I feel the same way, hydrangea1 — I’m still in shock that the communist won the election, but now that it’s over, I am going to be very interested in watching Obama’s supporters see him for what he is. I’m also shutting off all charitable giving but a very small amount of money to faith-based charities that I love, and cutting back on gift-giving, shopping, eating out. Gotta make up for what Obama is taking away for Obamacare. When taxpayers and citizens realize they have to wait to see a doctor, along with the other 14 million illegals who are going to demand THEIR free healthcare, I can’t wait to say “Don’t blame me — I didn’t vote for him!”

          • Strange1

            nicely said. I give to my church because it goes right back to my community. As for the others…go get it from obama.

          • Sheldon Cooper

            Cutting off charity is a great idea. Let Obama take care of them. But, please don’t cutoff our military and veteran charities. It’s not their fault their votes didn’t get counted AND they have this a$$hole as a boss for the next 4 years.

          • ThorOdinson

            Oh please. Even if Obama were declared Dictator for Life and reigned for the next 50 years with 40% unemployment and people burning hundred dollar bills for heat, you just know that he’d still find some way to blame George W. Bush, and the media will go right along and keep covering for his ineptitude.

          • OgottaGo

            But don’t you see? This is EXACTLY what Obama wanted. Now people will be FORCED to go on the gov’t dole and the gov’t grows and grows and grows. D*mn communist, sum beech.

          • Sheldon Cooper

            Uhhh, he blamed Bush again today at his “press conference”. It was more like a liberal media cream fest, but you know.

        exactly. Let them stew in their own sh!t. Literally.

      • etherbunny2

        Well, it’s not like they didn’t have several days advance notice of the storm to get prepared. But like all libs, they waited for government to take care of them. Next time, vote responsibly fools.

        • BossyBlonde

          Um hello, how do you prepare for a storm to wash away your entire freaking house? And BTW, not ALL NY’ers voted for O, and we take care of one another, something that’s not reported in the media. You should be ashamed of your comments. I worked on the campaign, drove from NY to Ohio to go door to door, made phone calls etc. Not all of us should be lumped together as government dependants. And statements like this are why some of my friends can’t stand Conservatives. I try to set a better example than this, but when they read statements like this, it’s like spitting in the wind. Instead of insulting people, I spent my weekend HELPING them clean up, to ya know, promote the fact that dispite what they’re told, we don’t only give a shit about ourselves. UGH. Instead of dissing an entire state, you should help educate people why we have a better platform, and you can’t do that by insulting them.

          • Sandy E Clanton

            Um hello, your post tells me that if you have friends that hate conservatives they must be liberal sorta like didn’t specify which campaigned you worked for, could be O for all i know..we tried to “educate” people and one after another we were called teabaggers, bigots, racist, unamerican, unpatriotic, nazis, stupid, right wing nut jobs, astro turf, extremists in brooks brother suits and the list goes on. I would never ever wish ill will on anyone unlike Ellen Barkin, cher and the hollywood elites..THIS list goes on and on let them send you help..your a mighty busy person if you can campaign from NY to Ohio and help with clean up,..we ALL know that when 9/11 happened the country CAME TOGETHER and were there for you “NewYorkers” and as liberal as the state is, try getting some consolation from California..i’m done being nice to uninformed revenge reap what you sow. I’d hate to know that i was soo lonely that I couldn’t go to a family member’s or friend’s home BEFORE this so called Superstorm hit! You can bet that if meteroligists tells me a 15 ft wall of water is headed my way and i live on an island i’d get the heck out of dodge..not wait on gooberment to bring in the brigades!! God help em get their material belongings back or electricity for that matter!

          • BossyBlonde

            Yes that is exactly what I was implying, that I have Liberal Democratic friends and co-workers. I thought my original post made it obvious that I worked on the Romney campaign, but perhaps not. Yes I have been busy. I drove to Ohio to volunteer going door to door and make calls at the victory center, because I know my vote doesn’t really count where I live and I tried to make a difference. And yes, I spent my weekend out in LI helping friends and strangers alike empty the contents of their homes. Because I’m a human being first, and in this moment, wasn’t concerned with who they voted for. Sandy wasn’t partial to political affiliation.
            Those names you speak of, I was called the same, I’m not denying the frustration or aggravation as I’ve been feeling the same. My point was that we are better than that, better than them. Us stooping to the same level by wishing ill (not saying you did, but read the other posts) on people doesn’t help us or our cause or entice people to want to join our party.
            By the way, there are quite a few elderly people (my friend just helped one couple get to a hospital yesterday) that have NOBODY and nowhere to go. But I was referencing the people who did leave, and returned to nothing, or a condemned house, there was no preparing for that.

          • Sandy E Clanton

            I’m glad your friend got to help the elderly people to the hospital..sheesh after almost 4 weeks since the disaster..being the kind and compassionate person i am i would’ve taken the elderly couple with me..i’ve seen first hand the dazed look in people’s faces over devestation, my husband and i went and helped when andrew hit and living in MS i saw the devestation and the leveling of towns all across the gulf after katrina..i don’t care if democrat/liberals want to “come to our side” it’s like i tell my kids “I can show you better than i can tell you” ha they finally come around they haven’t proven me wrong’ll never be able to tell a liberal what’s in the best interest of the country it will always be gimme yours, gimme yours so i don’t have to give em’s too late anyway the hour of socialism is here thanks to your liberal friends that hate CONSERVATIVES..maybe you should have called them first when working your phone bank. in the meantime i can show em better n i can tell em…i’m just waitin on the other shoe to drop

          • BossyBlonde

            What you just said about showing them better is exactly what I was implying in my original post, and I truly believe that. We are compassionate people and as I say to everyone, giving of ourselves and even charity is exactly the american way, having government take it and do what they please is redistribution.
            The elderly couple I specifically referenced, were trapped in the upstairs of their home as their 1st floor flooded. My friend Carol told me the wife was sticking pots out of here window to get rainwater to drink, and they were rationing the little bit of food they had. Nobody knew they were there. The husband was badly dehydrated and needed hospitalization. When she had the ambulance/cops & a social worker finally get there, they wanted the wife to go to a shelter and the huband was in the ambulance. She called her friend who works in a hospital to get them both admitted so they could stay together because the wife was refusing to leave the home if she couldn’t go with her busband. That’s just 1 story and I don’t tell it to get people to feel bad or sorry, just as an example. The hurrican wasn’t even the original story on here, I was just surprised at the nastiness of some of the posts regarding the hurricane. And believe me when I tell you that I’ve spent the last few months trying to persuade some of my friends, and anyone who would listen to me why O was the WRONG choice. You think I don’t know it’s people like my friends that have done this to our country. To tell you the truth, prior to me posting on facebook when I started supporting Romney, I had no idea I had so many Liberal friends/co-workers. I can only hope that they learn the needed lessons that are unfortunately about to unfold in the coming years.

          • GwenB

            That’s exactly how Romney wanted it. Keep the money at state levels instead of all up in FEMA, so that the help would be there and also people would help one another. Since FEMA seems to be dropping the ball, people and local businesses have come out and helped.

          • DukeF


          • GwenB

            Thanks for that intellectual reply. I’m sorry that your president sucks so bad that you can’t defend him so you have to resort to acting like a 12 year old.

          • sgb1

            Perhaps you now understand that Katrina was not Bush’s fault, even thought the MSM continues to say so. There has to be an immediate reaction locally. It is little things like asking FEMA in. I’m tired of paying for FEMA and think the money should go to the states.

          • JP

            I dont care if you (or your ENTITLED FRIENDS) dont think anything of me! YOU voted for a LIAR, and if you one of the ONES THAT CAME TO OHIO to GO DOOR TO DOOR, I hope you and all you ENJOY IT AS IT GETS WORSE!

            We tried to tell everyone that THE BUM has never done anything that even resembles work so why do you all listen to him? And if you are so SMART, why didnt you see that the GOP would retake the house? BECAUSE EVEN WITH ALL THE INTIMIDATION and CHEATING you could not TAKE the physical areas of the country! That meant we HAD THE HOUSE!

            Some of you that think you know so much probably should have paid MORE ATTENTION in POLITICAL SCIENCE CLASS (or US Government). Then MAYBE you would have known that the HOUSE CONTROLS THE PURSE STRINGS to the AMERICAN GOVERNMENT! So when the parties CANT AGREE and they WILL NOT, because THOSE OLD FOLKS LIKE ME, we WORKED OUR WHOLE LIVES AND we are NOT SUPPORTING YOU YOUNG FOLKS THAT THINK YOU ARE ENTITLED!

            Once again, I VOTED FOR ROMNEY, I am a registered Republican. I VOLUNTEERED for Romney’s campaign. The ONLY point I am trying to make is, reading SOME of these comments regarding NY and the Hurricane is not only hurtful to me, but stoops down to their level or wishing for revenge. That was their campaign, not ours.

          • Kylabee

            By the same logic, you can’t paint all conservatives with this broad generalization, either. They give more to charity than liberals anyway.

          • BossyBlonde

            I am a Conservative, and I’m not trying to paint a generalization on anyone. I was saying comments such as the ones that are here do more harm than we need.

          • $22639970

            it’s difficult to sympathize with people who allow labor unions to turn away volunteer utility workers from Alabama because they weren’t union labor, and an idiot mayor who doesn’t want the National Guard because they have icky-poo guns and who wouldn’t allow donations of food because he couldn’t verify the nutritional content of the donations. (A little helpful tip here for Mayor Boob, the food is healthier than starvation.) You might want to remind your friends that after being rebuffed by socialist assholes, conservatives merely concluded that you didn’t want our help, so we obliged. After all, we aren’t the ones who force our agenda down peoples’ throats, that’s what Democrats do. .

          • BossyBlonde

            I think the unions in NJ turned away the Alabama workers. And my response was screw that, NY will take them. Our Mayor is a nincompoop, I agree. And I can’t wait for him to be out of office. FYI, I am a Conservative

Still have family there who never check on us when we lose power for a week from ice storms or get hit with inland hurricanes. Too bad, those left wingers never will get over themselves. They voted for Obama and now they can live with their socialist government. By the way, Christi is a trader. You reap what you sow.

          • BossyBlonde

            Of course, because a lot of it was said to me as well. I had to hide a lot of people, and I’ve even deleted people since the election was over because I couldn’t stand their gloating and nastiness.

          • mh

            i have liberal friends who actually believe (and i am dead serious), that businesses are cutting hours as a revenge thing for obama winning the election. they are incapable of understanding the costs associated with obamacare or his anti-business administration. they are so singularly focused.
            i understand that liberals and conservatives see the world very differently from their doorsteps, but my god man! really do they honestly believe this is a revenge move by business? sadly, i think they believe EXACTLY that. so if we go on that premise, how will there ever be compromise?

          • mh

            i get your point but, i’m tired of liberals always bitching about conservatives not “caring” about them. what liberals want is equal outcomes in life for everyone. it simply doesn’t work that way, and they are just too weak and stupid to work hard and be responsible for themselves. there is already a safety net for these people and obama has GREATLY expanded the eligibility to get on these govt programs thereby securing a MASSIVE voting block of poor losers. it’s sickening. i look at the USA as a big host with millions of parasites bleeding it dry one day at a time.

          • BossyBlonde

            I agree with you, all of it actually, because I say the same things. I’m only bitching about the comments that say NY deserved the storm or let them freeze to death, etc etc. I usually only see comments such as these from the other side, not from my own. We don’t have to stoop to their level, that’s all I’m saying.

        • Craig Schwarzbek

          Obama just doesn’t care about Sandy because it was mostly white people that were affected. Where is the help? Obama doesn’t care about us white people.

            Started looking at land in AZ, but have also considered looking abroad. Never, ever thought I”d be saying this. What we all need to do however, is prepare. The collapse is coming, and you don’t want to be the fatted calf when the welfare legions (obamazombies) start rioting.

            Here is his first step to disarm the american people… and you all call me nutts. You are about to have a rude awakening soon… step one to a dictatorship!!!

            WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.
            The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush’s administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better. On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States.
            The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations. By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress.
            Once the US Government signs these international treati
            es, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments. These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms.

            It will never happen! The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened.
            Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.
            Does that mean Obama is telling the truth? What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress.We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public.
            We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership. And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment. This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be
            forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.
            Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed. Straight into socialism if Obama has his way… We are being led like a lamb to the slaughter (Socialism/Dictatorship).

          • mh

            dont attack me for saying this ( i am a fellow conservative) but no international treaty supersede the US constitution:
            Take a quick google search on this matter or read a like like the following:
            There is no doubt obama and libs would LOVE to ban personal ownership of weapons, but it will not be happening anytime soon, likely never unless there is some major overthrow of the governemnt as we know it, but as long at the three government bodies remain in tact, there is little chance of out gun ownership rights going anywhere. “shall not be infringed upon” pretty much leaves no room for an insane liberal interpretation of the peoples’ right to bear arms.

          • Beeta

            If I was in charge of these countries you would have to take a test to come to my country..We do not want the libs in Texas. They are poision.. What they can’t steal even if it has been nail down hasnt been created ..They are dishonest and lying thieves… I don’t imagine these other countries want corruption in their nation so hopefully the only good contries left on earth will not allow muslims and libs in…We will never know an honest election in america again… Look what he just done on Gun legistlation..He wants to be the only one with a gun… easier to be a dictator that way. we soon will be ordered to turn our weapons in… a black day in america when he got reelected… That was the day america DIED.

      • Joanie

        I teach in a community college and I agree with what you say about the stupid teachers! I’ve been in education for almost 30 years…I teach future teachers, so I’m very passionate about education. But, over the past several years, it has become an embarrassment to admit that I am a teacher. It is assumed that since I am a teacher, I must be liberal, pro-union, pro-tenure, etc. But I’m the exact opposite! I am first and foremost a Christian. Everything the teaching unions and public education stands for is drastically opposed to my beliefs. But, I stay with it. I see it as a mission field and students desperately need teachers who will teach TRUTH! Unfortunately, so many teachers, especially in the colleges, are extreme liberals and spout their liberal ideology in their classrooms. This should be illegal…it is definitely unethical. But, sadly, I am the minority in the education system now.

        • Joanie

          Also…I am on one of those full-time temporary contracts, so I receive no benefits. I was told that maybe this next year, my position would become full-time permanent, with benefits. But now that Obama stole re-election, I am sure that won’t happen now.

          • dkhilly

            Hang in there and know that you ARE making a difference. I had to take US history twice thanks to transfering colleges, and hearing the same stories from a liberal professor and a conservative professor broke my spell of just eating whatever the professors were teaching me….you’re that one spell-breaking teacher!

      Yes, and when the unemployment rates are counted, you will simply cease to exist. Pathetic.

            I know. I’m not conceding defeat. I’m saying we have to hold on, not give up. I don’t any other choice. We have no other choice. We have another chance in 2014 to take the Senate. Insanity cannot continue to rule.

      • Thomas Duensing

        After 4 more years, it will be impossible to reverse much of this. Socialist policies are extremely difficult to reverse historically. This is pretty much a one-way trip.

        • TomJB

          No, it will be able to be reversed, but it will have to be done by the states. They created the federal government, they can change it or end it. Ill be penning a letter to my State legislative reps urging them to start a call for an Article V convention. No single President or congress will be able to do anything, you are right with that.

          • Thomas Duensing

            I pray that you are right.

          • PennyRobinsonFanClub

            Or someone can try that =other= thing, the old-tyme thing, Proposition 1861 . . .

          • subo

            Does that require a state’s senate and house approval? Many states do not have a one party legislature, like us, here in MI.

          • TomJB

            Subo, this is 2 days old so you may not see this, but yes, 2/3 of the state legislatures can call for a convention and 3/4 of the states’ legislatures can ratify amendments. I do not, however, know what the requirements within those state legislatures are. From a quick reading, it seems a majority vote is enough, though I imagine state constitutions may address higher requirements. So 50%+1 vote in 38 states. Its a high bar, but not impossible.

            On the other side, 2/3 vote in both houses of Congress can propose amendments but the same 3/4 vote of state legislatures is required. The Congressional vote, however, is not a requirement – if 3/4 of the states pass an amendment, it is enacted. Not even SCOTUS can rule an amendment unconstitutional as it is, by definition, even of the strictest originalist, in the constitution and therefore constitutional.

          • Cathy

            I would say move to a state that reflects your values if you are to survive this insanity for the next 4 years.

          • TomJB

            Cathy, I hate that flippant response whenever it is raised, either 2000, 2004, or today. I do happen to live in a state that reflects many my values (there should never exist a state that reflects *all* of anybody’s values), but I love my entire country (and yes, I have my money where my mouth is – 10+ years current active duty service with 20 months in active war zones and another 12 hazard duty). I am not vindictive and have accepted the fact that we have 4 more years of the current administration and its policies, and I do not want to see my friends and family, with many of whom I do not agree politically, suffer either. What I was pointing out is that there is a way to reform the federal government that is completely constitutional without having to elect a president that agrees with what one may want. Its another one of those checks in the constitution that, like the electoral college, balances the less populous states against the more – the 11 biggest states can essentially elect the Presidency (11 biggest states apportioned 267 EC votes in 2012). So today, a minimum of 12 states can theoretically elect the President; amazingly enough that is exactly the number left over from the 3/4 requirement to amend the constitution (38).

            Actually, I believe that no matter who won, the federal government may be too large a beast for any one person or congress to reform to the point we need (though personally, with his skill set, I think Romney would have been the best qualified to attempt it). The bureaucracy is simply too firmly entrenched and too large. I am starting to feel this is the only way to work within the system that will succeed.

  • Thomas Duensing

    Elections have consequences. Under Obamacare, it is cheaper to have two 29 hour-a-week employees than one 40-hour-employee, plus the company gets more employee hours out of the deal. Many people saw this coming. If you didn’t, that is the cost of voting for the wrong guy.

    If business’s don’t do this they may be forced to go out of business entirely and even more people will be out of work–be thankful you still have a job. But people will blame the businesses instead of the polices that brought this all on in the first place. Your “free” healthcare is never going to be “free”.

And his plan to crash the market (Down 300 on November 7th, with very slow signs of recovery throughout the week and this weekend.) and swell the ranks of welfare and food stamp recipients. While forcing businesses large and small to cut back hours to stay afloat.

      • aragona

        Tipping less. That’s a thought although in all honesty restaurant dining has been a luxury item in my budget for many years now. I rarely eat out.

        • Thomas Duensing

          My wife still wants to eat out. I’d rather cut back on that, but I lost that argument. So my tips will be much smaller. Also about 70% of people below 30 years of age voted for Obama, so chances are, we’re hitting the right people in the pocket book…. I really hate doing it, but I have to start thinking of my family.

          • Dawn

            Please don’t assume that everyone waiting tables is a liberal who voted for Obama. (I am a conservative, was a young Republican who worked as a server one summer) If you can’t afford the tip, don’t eat out. Waiters and waitresses make $2 an hour and have to pay taxes on the 15% tip whether they get it or not.

While Zero is out of town and on another trip and bowing festival to the Pacific Rim and beyond.

      Though it will only work if Obama and his Government goons get their appropriate cut. Outside of taxes, from those businesses’ profits,

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Yep, exactly what they did in “Atlas Shrugged.”

  • DrKeteDC

    Isn’t this part of the plan ? To force people onto the government insurance or medicaid? I thought Barry wanted single payer all along. Or was the government option really taken out? This means millions more will be without insurance. We may as well have bought insurance for the few that didn’t have it before. Cheaper.

    • Thomas Duensing

      Yeah, that’s the irony–studies showed that it would have been much cheaper to just pay their insurance instead of destroying and “rebuilding” the entire industry. It just shows that this was never really about healthcare, it was about power.

      • stuckinIL4now

        You’re absolutely right it was about power. But wait until da’ gubmint can’t pay for any of it bcuz there’s not enough revenue to pay for anything other than essential gubmint services. People won’t be able to pay the ObamaScareTAX bcuz they won’t have jobs or income. And then there will be fewer and fewer doctors and clinics and hospitals so there won’t really be much of a healthcare system anyway–even single-payer will be irrelevant bcuz the “payer” part won’t exist.

      • Penmar

        But how else could they tax the crap out of people if they didn’t overhaul it? It was never about taking care of those without insurance and always about a way to take more money from hard working people.

  • Shmoo Radley

    These people tweeting that their hours were cut, still don’t get it. They are all pointing their anger at the employer– not Obamacare. Obama can still do no wrong I guess.

      No more tipping. No more charitable contributions. No more giving money to the church No more handouts. We are cutting them all off in our house. They all sat by and actively or tacitly encouraged the reelection of Obama.. They can call their Dear Leader if they need to eat. Our well is dry and closed from this day forth.

      • CaliforniaMimi

        Agree Tom and it will be the same in our house. Just spent 4 years paying off debt because of the realization that this is what is killing our country – our inability to put off immediate wants, live within our means and go without the latest toy today in order to have stronger tomorrows. It was hard, and required a work ethic lacking in liberals today, but there is no way in this world I’m giving a dime to people who don’t seem willing to do the same. I need my money so I’m not beholden to the Gov for my family’s happiness, retirement or healthcare.

        • aragona

          I paid off my debt as well fearing this day would come. I have spent the last few post election days stocking up on food and household goods. I did pull from savings to do so but feel I will come out ahead when double digit inflation hits. Plus, it’s not like my savings accounts pay anything.

        • ChickOK

          The only debt I have is the house–haven’t had a car note or a credit card since late 2004.

          But I’m not gonna stop being a giving person, I’ll keep giving to my local church and other church-based efforts–I know exactly where the money is going. We men take turns doing the preaching so that saves a TON of money there, plus it gives folks who desire it an outlet for teaching they think is important.

          As for the gold in the lock box that was bought for less than $700/oz, most of it below $550, $1700 looks good. But hang out a little bit, and you’ll really see it fly.

  • riddler1620

    Idiots. I told every liberal I knew Obama care wasn’t free. Now we are all feeling the price. Dammit!!!!

    Elections have consequences. For any of the above that voted for Romney, I feel your pain. As for the Obama supporters? Good. “The Chickens Have Come Home to Roost!” As for my business if it gets slower? I already know who goes first.

    Just wait until/if they get enough part time income to fall into the “gotta pay for your own insurance or a penalty is due” trap in 2014.

      The second wave of this will be the part time workers figuring out that its cheaper to quit and go on medicaid than pay for healthcare.

      • Blackspots

        Wasn’t there some provision in the Affordable Care act that makes everyone over $55,000 pay for the health care of everyone under that amount? BTW, I voted for Romney, so those who voted for Obama get what they deserve.

    • subo

      …and Communism, as a result.

  • Maria Seeger

    A lot of these people seem to be minimum wage workers. I guess that they don’t realize that full time has been changed from 40 hours to 30 hours. And I also guess it hasn’t hit them yet that if they quit, they’re not going to be able to find another 30 hour job; at least, not at that low level.
    Right now they are shocked and can’t believe that employers would rather cut hours than have to pay for their health insurance under the Affordable Healthcare Act. Well, they shouldn’t be, because this is nothing new. At every minimum wage job I ever worked, I got not insurance benefits; that was reserved for top management and my work week was less than 40 hours a week. And that’s been over 40 years ago. I never got health insurance until I started working at higher level jobs where benefits were part of the package. And I suspect those kinds of jobs are going to start becoming as scarce as hen’s teeth.

    Fire Obama supporters first. They aren’t smart enough to keep on the payroll

  • Scott

    Remember that?
    We have to.

  • Jason Stewart

    There are consequences for voting. It is sad that the 49% who understood the issues will be affected by the actions of the mob.

  • ssenecal5000

    Buy only from non liberals /non Obama supporters. Hire only non liberals non Obama supporters. We can still make this election into a Lose -Win situation

    • Rod M.

      I am interested in doing this. I understand it may not be in the best interest of a business to openly advertise that they are conservatively owned and operated for they would want income from all persons, however I do want to only patronize conservative establishments. Last night I ordered Chinese take out and was having second thoughts about it – I was wondering all the while if the restaurant I went to supported the regime. I think it would be great if someone could start a page listing places that are run by conservatives nation wide, state by state, town by town. This is how I feel, I believe this is a real war between right thinking persons and the destructive cultural leftists who want to bring it all down.

      • Lixen™

        I am currently self employed but my husband is newly unemployed.. I told him he needs to put on his resume that he’s a conservative with conservative values, and has no interest in working for a company who doesn’t share his same philosophy.

    • RealityBitesBack

      Our company has federal contracts with the DoN. It was interesting to watch as two of our most liberal employees fell out of love with Obama.

      They experienced first hand the detriment of 3 years without a budget (continuing resolutions every 3-6 months had a vivid impact on their life). They know enough military protocol to understand that Benghazi was a failure of leadership with ongoing ramifications They know that this re-election could dramatically impact the funding for their jobs.

  • stellatruman

    well now it’s time for the elation to come to a grinding halt for the O voters…still there isn’t anything funny about it , because we are all going to suffer because of it..not just the sheep who voted for it. I have daughters that are in and entering the work force too and also we are small business owners…30 is the new 40 only this isn’t a fashion magazine headline

    • Thomas Duensing

      Yep. We ALL will suffer as a result of the election.

    • Scott

      The difference is, we’ve been suffering for 4 years already, I remember when the economy jumped after the republicans won the house in 2010, our business almost doubled overnight. I’ve seen that dwindle over the last 6-8 months. George Jones said it best in a song “IF YOU DIDN’T GET THE PICTURE, MAYBE YOU CAN READ THE WRITING ON THE WALL”
      Hire your daughters and hang on for 4 more. Even libtards won’t put up with this for long.

      • stuckinIL4now

        Unfortunately the vision-challenged idiots who didn’t get the picture couldn’t read the writing on the wall bcuz they also are illiterate.

      • Maria Seeger

        This is good advice. Put your daughters to work in the family business. You won’t be bound to the same government regulation you would be with workers who are not part of your family. My husband and I worked for our in-laws for ten years in a small family owned business for well below the minimum wage with no health insurance whatsoever.

    • tomincol

      You will either see part time employees vice full time employees. Or, a situation where health insurance is provided, but the employee must pay a % of the cost. Which defeats the concept of “free” healthcare.

      • stellatruman

        we are waiting for the word from our insurance broker….we fall between the cracks because of having a seasonal business which puts us at the level of over 50 employees for 90 days…been thru a lot just to hold onto our insurance benefits for our family since obamacare was passed. people have no idea what hoops we have had to jump thru already before it has even gone into full swing…mark my words, this will destroy our country although the people who read this are here for the same reason I am and have no clue

    • Cuse

      Don’t even have to boycott. Just torrent everything!

      Especially those sometimes awesome HBO shows.

  • tomincol

    I find it amusing they believe they can simply hop across the street to get another job. Really, they are talking about one low end job to another. What they will find is the same thing. Part time status, small paychecks, no leverage. But, they will get health insurance “free” since they are likely under the poverty line

    • Thomas Duensing

      Yeah, I was amused by their flawed logic there too….

    • Doing laundry

      They will have to pay a minimum of $695 a year per factcheck regardless if you have a job or not

      • Penmar

        The law makes a number of exemptions for low-income persons and hardship cases.

        “Individuals who cannot afford coverage”: If an
        employer offers coverage that would cost the employee more than 8
        percent of his or her household income (for self-only coverage) that
        individual is exempt from the tax.

        “Taxpayers with income below filing threshold”: Also
        exempt are those who earn too little to be required to file tax
        returns. For 2011 — as previously mentioned — those thresholds were $9,500 for a single person
        under age 65, and $19,000 for a married person filing jointly with a
        spouse, for example. The thresholds go up each year in line with
        inflation, so those cut-offs will be higher in 2014, when the tax first
        takes effect.

        • redheadgrl

          Also, there are subsidies for plans purchased on the exchanges.

          “For example, say a family of four had income of $46,100, which is 200 percent of the FPL. Assume that the annual premium for their state exchange’s benchmark silver insurance plan was $10,000 a year. This family would have to pay 6.3 percent of its income, or $2,904.30, of this premium and would receive a tax credit for the difference: $7,095.70.”

    What did they expect when they voted for Obama? This is what Utopia looks like!

    Wait?! Do you mean to tell me our “leader” does NOT ride a unicorn that shits rainbows and butterflies??!!!

    Good!! I hope every freakin person who supports the left and/orbited for the Marxist in chief gets exactly what they deserve!!

    The rest of us will cling to our guns and our savings and sit back and say “I told you so”

    • yahneverknow

      LOL “a unicorn that shits rainbows and butterflies” !!!! lmao.

      Don’t forget the glitter. The glitter is important.

  • aragona

    I have a thought. Those of you with businesses in blue states move to red states and take your businesses with you. Gets you out of liberal territory, increases red state populations, census population decreases in blue states, maybe their electoral college votes decrease as well and red states grow, increasing our political voice.

    • Cathy

      Not a bad idea actually.

    • Rusty Ware

      It’s happening…just not at a fast enough rate. I certainly would move my HQ from CA or NY in a heartbeat. It’s common sense; but that is something that is uncommon, as was clearly indicated on Tuesday.

  • Utes1

    I’m sorry. This is what you voted for. These tweets that say they are going to quit? And go to where that is going to be different? The only hope you have is if your state doesn’t set up an insurance exchange, then you state is immune from Obamacare and it’s taxes and regulations.
    You got what you wanted. Now live with it. I’m sorry, but I can find no sorrow for you. You all WILLINGLY voted for this guy, even though you knew this was going to happen. Too bad.

    • stuckinIL4now

      I especially liked the tweet from the one who’s quitting McDonald’s to go to Burger King, as if they’re not cutting hours either.

      • brianmouland

        As a former fast food employee most of the guys who own these places are not.millionaires . Every added expense is going to mean less hours for someone

    • Penmar

      I don’t believe that is correct, Robert, We would still be required to pay the tax for not having health insurance. The states that opposed ObamaCare the most would not only end up with federally run exchanges, they’d end up stuck with a mandate to purchase health insurance—health insurance that’s projected to rise in cost following ObamaCare—but none of the subsidies designed to ease the pain of the mandate. Also, the way the law is written, it only allows its insurance subsidies to go to people who purchase insurance through state-run exchanges.

  • carla5731
  • scubaski00

    Has anyone else noticed that republicans and conservatives are NOT rioting since romneys loss?? Yet, those hourly employees who voted for and their man are STILL ready to riot because their jobs are being cut and businesses are closing???

    What does that tell you about the bottom feeders our Marxist leader is perpetuating??

    • RealityBitesBack

      When you elect a community protest organizer as leader, you can’t expect much more than a series of protests.

        Very well said.

    • stuckinIL4now

      Truth is, nothing will make those low-lifes happy. They’ll never have enough but they’ll never get up off their lazy whiny complaining dimes to work for anything either.

      • Cosmic Girl

        Liberals got a great big hole, right in the middle of them. They can never steal enough, or inflict enough pain to ever fill it. [edited]

  • AlertUpUSA

    So, if business dropping hours to save taxes is not acceptable, are we to understand that, according to the new ‘Obama Patriots”, the proper course is to raise prices, pass on new expenses to the consumers? Bear the new burden AND pass it on so others have to bear it as well???

  • Gusta

    Well, I for one am shocked (shocked!) to hear that such a thing is going on!

    As we all know, elections have consequences. People are starting to understand that.

    • Lixen™

      No, they understand their paycheck is going to be cut. They don’t understand it’s directly tied to the celebrity muslim convert they put in office.

  • Rod M.

    Massive layoffs are already underway. Employees who have Obama regime bumper stickers on their car or have favorable postings on Facebook or Twitter, or are known leftists should be considered for job cuts first. Allow the conservatives to keep their job. What comes around goes around. This is a real war with the cultural left who want to destroy and destruct the American Ideal.

  • Doing laundry

    Do these people realize they will have to pay a minimum of $695 each under Obamacare even if they are unemployed?

    • RealityBitesBack

      They will, very soon!!

    • Blackspots

      I thought it was 2% of your income, or $750. And that’s just the start. After a couple years it starts to ramp up, eventually being more than the cost of insurance.

  • RealityBitesBack

    They should be happy to give up a few hours… ya know, so that those who are less fortunate can have things… like free healthcare, free Obamaphones, free college and more!

    A few hours is such a small price to pay when there are so many others who have no hours to share.

    • Lisa Dean

      Exactly @RealityBitesBack:disqus ! They voted for the redistribution of wealth. Now it’s not just our wealth that’s affected (as they wanted it to be) it’s their’s as well. Enjoy the redistribution that you voted for Libs…

    • Tantalus XVI

      thats brilliant, mildly sarcastic and totally something a rich Hollywood celeb would say in Obama’s defense. I’ll have to steal this.

    Libs – you won. Happy now? You have the COOL prez you wanted: Cool to creating jobs, cool to building stronger economy, Prez gets paid to play golf, ignore job cmtee mtgs, Intel briefs, to hang out with Beyonce, Jay-Z. Enjoy new normal. You voted for it.

  • FreedomReigns

    This is what you voted for so SUCK IT UP!

  • BananaCharger

    I bet 80%+ of these people voted for the petulant man boy, but not a single one of them have figured out that they did it to themselves. It would almost be worth a personal reply to each, “Enjoying your golden boy now? Elections have consequences, dumba$$!”

  • JP2012

    Interesting that many believe that companies are laying off or reducing hours to avoid having to pay for health insurance when in fact many are actually trying to avoid the Obamacare imposed penalties. That’s right Obama voters…what is acceptable business practice today becomes subject to a “tax” in January under Obamacare…own it!

  • alvin691

    Nancy Pelosi spoke to musicians and the artistically inclined in
    Washington DC, and instead of telling those in attendance they should get a job,
    she brought quite a different message: they needn’t bother working,
    because the taxpayers of the United States would cover their health
    care. Perhaps channeling her San Francisco district, Pelosi explained
    that without a job they would be free to focus on their talents, passions and aspirations because they wouldn’t be “job locked.” 5-15-2010

    • nickshaw

  • FreedomRecon

    Lol good point Paige

  • Cosmic Girl

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but couldn’t companies make all of their employees contractors, and still have them working 40 hrs a week? Wouldn’t that kill 2 birds with one stone: allowing workers to still make same money while at the same time avoiding Obamacare foolishness?

    • stuckinIL4now

      Good idea, but will they have enough business in this increasingly suppressed and oppressed economy to need many people working 40 hrs a week?

    • etherbunny2

      There are certain IRS restrictions on who can qualify to be a contractor. Probably not possible for many jobs.

      • Cosmic Girl

        So, there is no escape.

        • etherbunny2

          Unfortunately. Here is more info from an IRS pub:

          How can clients avoid exposure and risk of costly surprises from IRS
          audits? Limit your exposure and ensure resources you engage are

          The provider is incorporated, or at least an LLC

          Provider has invested in their own business

          Provider has other clients and actively markets their services

          Not all work is done on client premises

          Provider uses their own equipment

          Payment is by milestones, project completion, or agreed service levels

          Agreements specify deliverables and a finite duration

          Workers are not directed by the client how to do the work

          Expenses are not reimbursed (travel may be an exception)

          Provider does not receive training from client in order to do the work

          No benefits are paid other than agreed fees for work delivered

    • nickshaw

      They would pass a law banning it in two shakes, Wife.
      You know they would.

      • Cosmic Girl

        Actually, I was thinking the same thing. Something like Directive 10-289 from Atlas Shrugged.

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      Cpt America’s Wife:

      I don’t think changing everyone into a contractor is possible.

      When I owned the Bakery the Gruppen SS IRS had three immutable points that a contractor had to meet.

      One was requiring on-site attendance more often than 1x/2weeks. Another was “single contract clause”, meaning they only contracted to one business. I don’t remember the third point.

      Of course, this was years ago. The IRS regulations are nothing if not fluid, so I could be way off now.

      But do you really think Der Dingleberry™ will let his CrappyCare Masterpiece flounder that way?

      Good effort, though! We really need everybody brainstorming here!

      Being angry is fine. We need to bank the fires to sustain us. This is going to take awhile.

      Meantime. We need to push for impeachment. There are numerous grounds, incl. abrogation of his Oath of Office.

      And if a loud enough noise is made the Senate will follow through. Comes down to it Skummy Reid want to continue to be a big man.

      Forcing Repubs to have backbone & dump their Proggie-Repub buddies will be the harder fight.

      • Cosmic Girl

        I hope that you’re right that if enough noise is made, the Senate would follow. But it’s so dominated by leftists!! I guess if their constituents feel enough pain and threaten to vote them out of office, only then will they do something that’s actually positive for the country. But their constituents don’t seem bright enough to lay blame at their feet, and they’ll only blame the “evil, racist Republicans” for their heartache and woes.

  • CalMum

    Another great reason to have read the bill, before it was passed. What did anyone think was going to happen? I mean really!

  • etherbunny2

    Well, if you voted for obama, you are getting what you deserve. We all knew it would happen if he was re-elected. If you voted for R, I am sorry for you and hope you can find a second job to make up the difference in lost hours.

    • nickshaw

      Maybe discerning employers can ask questions of new hires to determine if they voted for Zero and throw their applications in the trash?

  • FunRunnerGirl

    It’s tragic that livelihoods and people’s life work is being destroyed right before our eyes. The MILLIONS that glorified in his reelection are oblivious what they’ve done to millions and millions or people. This was the SADDEST, most heartbreaking election in our history.

    • Rusty Ware

      Ignorant idolatry. They voted celebrity over leadership.

  • Purple State

    How could the Twitter user’s paycheck from Hollister be related to the president’s re-election? He/she worked those hours at least two weeks ago. Also, if you look at the profiles of many (if not most) of these Tweeters complaining about hours cut, you’ll see they are students (ie: already working part-time.)

  • nickshaw

    Yay!!! I voted for Obama! Now the rich are going to pay!!
    Yeah, but now you only get 29 hours a week of pay.
    God, these people are stupid. What did they think was going to happen?
    What was that about a fair wage and everyone paying their fair share?
    Revenues will drop and the panic will set in because the rich don’t have enough to cover just the welfare expenses even if you take all of their money!
    Yep, elections have consequences. And they will show up any day now.

  • nickshaw

    Does anyone get the impression that the clowns who say they are going to quit and get another job are really just Zero voters who are going to quit and get unemployment, or welfare? It’s not like there’s millions of jobs to be had is there?

    You know, maybe we should all quit and go on unemployment or welfare?
    Bring the sucker down sooner rather than later?

    • Red Blues

      The unemployment gravy train will only last so long.. was on it for 78 weeks trying to replace a 80K per year job (due to 20% mandatory layoffs from corporate after 17+ years with the company – the 20 somethings worked for a *lot* less money and didn’t have all the accrued vacation time).

      At 54 yrs old, a mortgage and three kids in high school/college, I couldn’t afford to take the part time jobs I was offered. One company actually offered a job with a 60 mile commute… for $.050 per hour over minimum wage and a guarantee of 13 hours per month (yep, that’s not a typo… per month).

      Nowadays, that’s all that is available with no end in sight.

      So, if you have a job… keep it and count your blessings… it won’t be so easy to replace. Doing so for ‘principle’ may feel all *great* and *wonderful* but ‘feelings’ will not pay the bills.

  • sjd

    A couple of things:

    1. There are only so many dollars, if you take from one basket, the others will adjust down.
    2. The Government has NO money, NONE> Everything they spend comes from real people, if you don’t pay taxes then you are a taker not a contributor. EVERYTHING they spend, EVERYTHING comes from real people, the more you take, the less they have for other things. This is true for companies, families and individuals.
    3. The more you take the less there is, for example Obama Phones were not free (you stupid bitch), they are paid for by taxes those of us with phones pay for. SO you “get” a phone the rest of us get a bill. You can only do so much of this before the system (us) go broke.
    4. We all can’t be on welfare and food stamps.
    5. Every socialist system in the world is POOR, with bad services, bad limited food, bad and limited health care, but yes its all “equal” congratulations it is all equally terrible…except for the Socialist Elite, like Michelle.
    5. Che was a murderer, killed men women and children, not some one to admire.
    6. No democracy has killed the millions that Mao, Stalin and Lenin have, learn some History before you get us all killed.
    7. Government takes more that it gives, all those bureaucrats don’t work for free.
    8. You think you have problems now…watch your freedoms, speech to be limited, religion already is more to come, internet to be restricted and monitored, second amendment ( can’t have you defend yourself or overthrow a tyrannical government, , agenda 21 ( the government needs to own all the property, you can’t.
    9. Careful what you wish (vote) for.

  • moonsbreath

    I was reading some of the comments when I came across those written by Stella. I’m so happy that she’s happy that Obama cares about her body parts. Not exactly sure what she thought would happen to them under Romney though? I hope that Stella is aware that Obamacare has a special plan for said “body parts.” Such as, no more yearly Pap’s and breast exams (MRI).
    But hey, Obamacare is free, right?

  • aposematic

    What did they expect? 30 hours made full time so employers would have to insure them. Hint to Gov. nitwitts and those that vote for them: employers are not stupid. They will just cut back everyones hours to 20 (assuming a 40 hr week here) and if needed hire another 20 hr per week worker. Hello, this builds a permenant lower class of very low wage earners. Most people will work a minimum of two different jobs, if they can find them.

  • Deborah JR

    Don’t like your job, go find a new one…..oh wait, that’s not so easy now is it? Businesses (you know, places that an individual built from the ground up, that kind of place) can’t afford the penalties contained in the ObamaMonstrosity. Business owners have families, too, and they come first. As usual libs are blaming employers for their woes when their warped little fingers should be pointing to the person/persons who passed a law without reading and understanding its ramifications.

  • SpinMeNot

    Now here’s a thought. There was liberal-progressive puke lurking around here the other day talking about “they are going to get their universal health care”. Well, as we pointed out to him, not only will the supply side aspect make that worth dick; unless you’ve got skills worth the cost, you aren’t going to find a job that gives you more than 30 hrs / week. So, the poor schmucks will have to work two jobs, because to pay for their own health care “in the new system” will cost them most of their second low wage pay check.

    Now, given that we the know, the vast majority of liberal-progressive pukes have the work ethic of your average meth-addicted crack whore, well, they aren’t going to be working a lot of 60 hour weeks are they?

    So, where does this leave us. Not really in a better place, but boy, I just got big ol’ smile on my face. This is just too good.

    Let the gnashing of liberal-progressive teeth begin! Its not fair, now I have to work two crappy jobs! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA …

      Actually with the cuts in hours, many will need to find three part time jobs just to be able to work 60 hours… that is if they can find employers hiring (not likely) and who are willing to work with them in getting their schedules to line up (even less likely).

      • SpinMeNot

        I stand corrected, thank you sir. It is very important for us to be accurate with our estimates so that we can tell them we had this figured out months ago …

        • Red Blues

          No problem, but I’m concerned for those who will need to consider this to pay bills and feed their families. I worked *four* PT jobs in college to pay expenses – a total of ~45 hours per week with a full time class schedule. It was *not* a healthy lifestyle and I often missed potential work hours due to scheduling conflicts between jobs and classes.

          While I *do* understand your glee in seeing the great gnashing of teeth and surprise when they realize they voted for this reality themselves, I cannot help but feel remorse for those who did *not* choose this path and will suffer nonetheless.

          • SpinMeNot

            Red, I hear you. I’m sorry if my attempt at humor didn’t go over well. You are of course absolutely correct to feel remorse for all of us that tried to stop this, but well, here we are.

            I’ve gotten so damned depressed about this whole stinking situation that when I had that thought, first good smile I had since I got my tired ass out of bed on 07 NOV. In trying to work through this, I’ve decided that there are three groups of people we are going to have to do with after the crash. Those that voted for this, those that worked their asses off to prevent it, and those that didn’t vote at all. I don’t know which of the other two pisses me off more. I suspect it is group that stood by and said nothing. I want to be there when somebody comes for them. But I will have already been taken by then, I am sure.

          • Red Blues

            No, the humor *is* necessary because laughing in the face of adversity makes us stronger… and I chuckled at your comment, too!

            Also, agreed on the three groups… but it seems that a better job of putting together a strong message for the reasons to become informed on civic responsibilities should be a priority because as they can easily now see, elections *do* have consequences… we are *still* only one generation from the disappearance of freedom… not a pleasant possibility and one I’m willing to work against happening.

            This information needs to be carried far and wide to those two groups that are either in agreement or passed on their civic duty this go ’round. Other than doing that – and praying – everyone should otherwise be ready to be rounded up for the (re)education camps and it will not matter then.

  • Lisa Dean

    Seems to me all of these winy people now have time to get a second and third part time job. Suck it up libs ~ you voted it back in office and now you can suffer the consequences right along with the rest of us who didn’t vote it back in office.

  • Red Blues

    Their Prophet has lowered profits… so businesses must either cut costs or close.

    Not a good choice but there are not too many options available and still keep their doors open. These ‘unintended consequences’ (a hallmark of liberal agendas) showed up very quickly… has not been a week.

    Can’t wait to see what happens in businesses across the nation after January 1st when more ACA rules kick in… hang on folks… the ride is going to get a bit bumpy…

    • Red Blues

      The freebies from Santa are now being paid for on the backs the rich (and by ‘rich’ I mean anyone who has a job) so that those evil capitalists get put in their place by those who really care for the poor (and by ‘evil capitalists” I mean business owners or the majority of job creators, by ‘those who care really care for the poor’, I mean
      career politicians).

      I say let’s have a constitutional convention or just a nationwide amendment initiative, two really;

      1) term limits for any and *all* public offices and

      2) all laws made apply to all citizens including – *especially* including – congress.

      SocSecurity and Medicare/Medicaid problems? FIXED!

      Put *their* skin in the game and watch them work for a change.

  • EgoMatters

    Obama fans… should have been more careful what you wished for. You will personally feel the sting of voting with your heart instead of your head. Sorry… the heart can’t predict consequences. That skill develops later as one matures.

    The good thing, though, is that conservatives will be prepared and liberals probably won’t. Then we can REALLY stick to our convictions re: self-sufficiency. But, as research shows, conservatives are more altruistic than liberals, so we’ll end up helping them anyway.

    All in all, I’d rather have my conscience than theirs.

  • tjp77

    Dont worry, pretty soon Obama will sign some kind of executive order making it illegal for companies to employ part-time workers. Then instead of just cutting hours, companies will go out of business altogether.

    But for Obama, that’s win-win really. Because that way he’ll get even more people on welfare, AND be able to blame rich, greedy business owners for cutting jobs. A couple of years of that, and he’ll have built a permanent majority constituency for Democrats.

    He’s actively seeking the destruction of the American economy and way of life, because that’s the only way he can build his statist utopia. And it’s working.

    • Joshua Johnson

      Still trying to see how utopia could possibiy be a factor… most of his subjects will hate him by that point… I hope

  • piker1

    I just love all of these cretins throwing temper tantrums and cursing out the companies for cutting hours. They were all too stupid to realize the consequences of Obamacare and let Hollywood and people like Jay Z tell them who to vote for.

  • RalphTheCat

    For any of the people out there who voted for Obama and have had their hours cut…
    HA HA HA….
    This was foretold by everyone. You were either too stupid or too idealistic.
    Now you and your families will pay.

    • Red Blues

      As a longtime resident of Illinois, (“Red Blues”, get it?) I can go back to when I did *not* vote for Obama the IL state senate. The man’s credentials? Chicago politician with the blessing of the Daley machine? check; Associate of Bill Ayers, noted radical neer-do-well? check; Voted for late term (post delivery) abortions? check;
      Voted ‘present’ for almost all other legislation? check…
      So I voted for Alan Keyes – even though he’d only established residency a few days before filing for the office. Yep, that’s politics in Illinois. Welcome to our little slice of heaven!

  • Brandon

    I feel sorry for the people who knew this would happen and voted for Romney, they have to be taken down with the idiots who voted for Obama. As for the idiots who voted for Obama, I feel not one ounce of pity for you, you deserve every single thing you get.

    • Penmar

      Why should people who voted for Romney be taken down with the Obamazombies?

      • Brandon

        they shouldn’t, it’s a damn shame

  • mona

    You DEMs asked for it….this is called –spreading the wealth around.

  • aragona

    have any of you tweeted these whiners?

  • Joe Smith

    this is what happens when illegals are given the right to vote take a utility bill and go vote what crap i heard there was commercials in spanish in mexico telling people how to come to america and go on welfare with instructions on how to do it also the welfare people should have no right to vote there are dependent on government and so are robots that do what the hand that feeds them tells them to do also obamas plan to bring in puerto rico as a state is a ploy to overwhelm the welfare program even more and turn more people dependent on government into democraps

  • Joe Smith

    they probably arent smart enough to realize they cant get unemployment if they quit either, they think obama will fly in on a muslim carpet and rub his lamp and have money fall from the sky

  • People Corporation

    What are they complaining about – you got free contraceptives! Trade the $9 a month for rent. Easy.

  • lillymckim

    Obama tells them vote for me I’m all you will ever need I will make everything in life fair. Obama promised “everyone everything”.

    He will give you “just enough” for a vote. But now you have become a means to an end collateral damage.

    Everything you do in this life has consequences and Santa Claus is make believe.

  • Yeeheecom

    All i got to say is that “We Told You So”

    • Discontentwliars

      They knew what they were doing, and anyone with any knowledge of government at all knows how this will go. The more dependence they have on the government, the more they will continue voting for those that support them. This is what we call “Buying Votes” and why some of us get so upset about it. It insures the Democrats maintain their power. The conservatives see this as a downward spiral since business, and free market systems continue to “DOWNSIZE”. The power remains with the government, and the ruling party, and will continue. The bigger the government, the smaller the people. It’ll get worse.

  • People Corporation

    All the ones losing hours, on the verge of not making rent can console yourself that the eviction process takes a couple months. Just enough time to watch Dear Leader be sworn in before they shut the cable off and the sheriff comes a knockin.

    • Discontentwliars

      Well the problem is that those losing insurance coverage will need to pick it up on their own, or pay the tax (not a tax argument) for not having insurance. Those that have insurance will pay additional tax on the insurance they get from the company.

  • Discontentwliars

    It was already known what would happen. This is the 2nd step to a single payer system, since there won’t people on insurance from employers. The liberals shouldn’t be upset, since it’s part of the plan. The government will have to step in an provide everyone health care to all those that don’t have it. It was just another way to accomplish the goal. Oh, and the 47% who don’t pay taxes won’t be paying in the future either. Everyone wins! Well, not everyone – the losers are still people generating income, so the playing field will be leveled. The foundations and really rich, will still be fine.

  • Jerry J Brown

  • GiantClam

    This is what you degenerate liberals voted for. Wait till gas hits $11. You won’t be able to afford to get to your part-time job. Thank you dems. Thank you for giving us obbama…twice. I don’t know if you’re all stupid, or simply hate America. Probably a little of both. By the end of this term, we’ll officially be a 3rd world African nation – run by Africans. You all hated the crackers that made this country prosperous and great, now with the stupid dems and minorities in control, we’ll all suffer. Thanks, again, morons. You should have never been given the vote.

  • Dale McNamee

    I also agree that it’s tragic & heart-breaking…But, if the people who are posting these tweets voted for Obama or were those ” 3,000,000 Republicans ” didn’t vote for Mitt Romney…This is your ” reward ” !

    For months & months, businesses big & small were warning that they couldn’t afford the ironically & inaptly named ” Affordable Care Act.” !

    But this was never considered by the “proggies”…And never reported by the ” Moronically Stupid Media “…I watched ABC,CNN,CBS, MSNBC ( Mentally Sick Nonsense Broadcasting Crap ), NBC, NPR, PBS and didn’t see or hear anything…

    But, I read plenty in the conservative press & blog sites and saw this coming…

    I’m disabled ( failing heart, dying by increment ), Applied for SSDI,waited two years for a hearing and was denied…November 11 marks 6 months of being in the “Appeals” process which may last 12-18 months ! And if I’m denied again, I face a 2 year battle in Federal Court !

    My wife, a RN with over 30 years experience is only finding part-time work with NO BENEFITS and private health insurance is expensive at 59 years of age as are similar plans offered by the Federal & State governments ( $ 500.00 + per month ) !

    Hospitals and doctors are not hiring and are cutting back or eliminating positions as well…

  • Libertyship46

    The first “benefit” of Obamacare to hit the public in the face. I hope all the people out there who voted for Obama and therefore decided to keep Obamacare are happy with the results of their decision. My heart bleeds for you if you voted for Obama and now are being laid off. Boo hoo. Next time think before you vote.

  • Vivian Perez

    If any of these tweets come from people who voted for CeasarObamus… too late… a temper trantum won’t help… “whatever a man sows that he will also reap.” Many of you have vociferously and “graciously” promulgated: YOU WON…. now everyone loses. Learn the following lesson: You ain’t seen nothing yet!

  • littlekittie

    Well, the 52% are starting to get a taste of what life will be like for them under their messiah’s rule. Should’ve thought about it before voting for that waste of skin.

    And get ready for the tax hikes. 75% of the $500+billion in new taxes via Obamacare will be levied on those who make less than $120K per year.

  • Steve Sykes

    They should put up pictures everywhere, with Obama golfing, a thought bubble trailing from his head :”Well, MY job is secure, anyway” – and then a big slogan: “ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES”. May all the progressives enjoy there leisurely work schedules.

  • Sinjun

    going to be painful.. but perhaps it’s a lesson people need to learn. Like putting your hand on a hot stove. Some pains people seem to need to go through before they actually learn to not do that again. in a way we did try to act to prevent that pain by keeping them from it. Perhaps they’ll learn now just how disastrous a decision they just made.

  • MovingToNevada

    And the left wing morons think the solution is to “boycott” these companies…

    Do these idiots ever think? Even if a boycott DID work (which they really don’t), they wouldn’t be hurting the company, they’d be hurting the employees…idiots.

    • GwenB

      I’m sure Walmart and target are shaking in their boots. It’s close to Christmas. Where are the obama bots gonna get good deals? No’ jobs, no’ money. Maybe Obama Claus will deliver presents to all the layed off people who voted for him.

  • Johnny Blade

    For all these people, I have a question… Who did you vote for in the Election? If you voted, Obsama… You get what you asked for. Way to go, geniuses!!! BTW, I’m cutting hours, too!!! Cant afford Obamacare!

    All I can say to you Obama supporters is enjoy your victory. You are getting exactly what you deserve.

  • Danny Masek

    I notice no union jobs seem to be affected by this. Many unions are exempt from these requirements. By design no doubt. Less income means less tax revenue AND higher social services costs. By design, no doubt. These people getting their hours cut will soon have to prove they have purchased health insurance, many will be forced into government plans. By design no doubt. Take away message: 2@20 instead of 1@40.

    How you liking your hope and change now??? Sometimes you have to be careful what you wish for because you might just get it!

  • Cherokeluv

    I have to say I dont have alot of sympathy for NY seeing how as in the middle of a disaster they overwhelmingly carry Obama who has done zero for them and doesnt seem to mind watching the old and helpless freeze. I dont like feeling this way but NY brought destruction on us all by carrying Obama but yet in the same breath want the quote conservatives and Im happy to b e called that to bail them out while Obama makes our way of life disappear.

  • Amanda Belge

    Yep, and they thought Obama was gonna pay their bills!!!!

  • Cathy

    If you voted for Obama, you voted in cut hours or no work. Did that not come to mind in the ballot box. If you had voted for Romney, there would be lots of work and overtime. Sorry now…too late. enjoy your life under Obama.

    You are quitting because your hours are being cut? Everyone is doing it, so where are you going to find a 40 hr week. Those on salary are making up the difference by working a lot more hours and getting paid for 40.

  • Ray Prentice

    Picture this: All these libs quit their jobs because of the cut hours. They then find that they can’t find any other job that will pay them. They decide not to look for work and lean on the system. The system rapidly crumbles from the weight of all these people and collapses in a grand fashion. Thus making them even worse off than when they were getting their hours cut. Maybe after all this they will decide that conservative values would have kept them at their job and making life better. Rather than the hell they just went through.

      Nope. It will still be the Republican’s fault! I don’t think they’re capable of logic. Look at California.

  • Aoife Crane

    Don’t feel a bit of pity for these morons. They voted for this POS based on things like Planned Parenthood, ocommiephones, free stuff….suck it libs. Only downside to this is, as small business owners, we’re feeling the pain too. Just wish this crap only affected the stupids among us.

  • Don Day Sr.

    you asked for it and unfortunately WE ALL GOT IT. maybe next time people will care about more than just….how’d that girl put it…”FREE STUFF” and actually vote what is best for the country. It’s just starting peeps….strap in for one hell of a ride.

  • Michael D. Stephenson

    And I’m afraid you ain’t seen nothing yet. We are just now starting to see the unbridled Obama, because he’s only got four more years to finish the job of fundamentally transforming this country. He’s already done or said a number of things post-election which would have raised eyebrows a week ago. 1) no gay marriage support (and you thought he was sincere – he just wanted your campaign donations and vote), 2) wants to push UN treaty through the Senate which could effectively get rid of guns and the 2nd amendment, 3) millions of new federal acres now off limits for energy production, 4) big increase in regulations. Still to come: 1) more “flexibility” with Russia, 2) push Israel under the bus, 3) bypass Congress, 4) increase taxes. I forgot to mention, way more debt as Harry Reid wants another 2.4 trillion increase in debt limit. I guess deficit reduction ain’t happening.

    If I were hiring (but I can’t afford to now), I might just have to screen applicant intelligence by asking who they voted for in the 2012 election. Well probably can’t legally do that, but I could ask an applicant to explain the Laffer curve. Are you getting a blank stare right now? If so, you must have voted for Obama. It’s time to get smarter and THINK FOR YOURSELF!

    All I can say is it’s a sad morning in America and I hope and pray we survive his 2nd term.

  • Cathy

    Too bad you didn’t read the fine print when you voted for BO…part time or no jobs will be the norm. Don’t complain, you voted him in, now live with it.

  • Ken

    Wow I feel sorry all of you are going to part time, I hope that none of you voted for Obama, if so you can blame him, when he gets back from his vacation that is. It is to bad that his followers did not listen to Romney about what would happen if Obama-care I’m sorry TAX did not get stopped. Now I guess you idiots will have to live with it. You see voting for the best liar does not work. And trust me I am sure he will cut his hours too, he probably has his tee-times set already..

  • carl

    you got what you voted for

  • lonestar50

    Obama voters are the ones who are responsible for all this. Some of you are bitching because your hours are being cut and you talk about finding another job or extra job. Companies are not hiring!!!!!! Get used to it because the numbskulls who voted for obama were just to damn stupid to see beyond the ballot box. Whoever voted for obama got screwed along with the rest of us. obamacare is going to cost a fortune to maintain and a bunch of taxes are also attached to obamacare. Companies who are laying off people and cutting hours are not going to take the hit for your healthcare. YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR YOUR HEALTHCARE OR PAY A FINE!!! Do you understand that???? It is just going to get worse. And all of you who wanted free stuff, then suffer the consequences. Women’s healthcare, i.e. birth control. Did you think that was FREE??? WELL IT IS NOT FREE, it will be handle through obamacare and THAT IS NOT FREE EITHER. I have an idea for your free birth control….hit the streets and make a few tax free bucks. I do not have pity for anyone who voted for obama. obama’s slogan “Lean forward” doesn’t sound too good now does it? I wouldn’t lean forward too much though!! HA!!! I am really sorry this is affecting those who did not vote for obama.

    Libs need to remember elections have consequences. And you are gettiing yours now! Too bad this effects people who knew not to vote for Obama because this would happen.

  • DRW

    The flaw of Obamanomics isn’t hard to spot. People work hard and have bright ideas in the effort to advance themselves–quite normal and healthy. When they see more and more the fruits of their labors snapped up by greedy statist politicians and redistributed, the incentives are eroded and dynamism is lost in the economy. Optimism becomes pessimism and the business community hunkers down into survival mode. The layoffs and cuts to hours have already begun and will snowball. The one-two punch comes in because the Democrats prosper from failure—the more dependents they create the more votes they can count on to keep the goodies rolling in. Leftism is destructive—history is filled with examples.

  • Laura Palmer Holbrook

    Poor libs. Didn’t see that one coming now did they?

  • Christine Cammarn

    This is sad. People just don’t get it do they? Even people who think they are safe like teachers etc. will get cut eventually too especially if they just got hired. I wish people had knwn what they were getting before the election.

    damn! if only the candidates had tried to make the election about jobs instead of happy vaginas…. oh, wait.

    seriously, note how many of those tweets are from women. they cared more about their right to kill their unborn than their ability to make a decent wage. they bought the lie that the election was about their lady parts…

    This is what Obama wants. . He’ll send out radio & TV ads soon, (costing us more $$), telling them how to get on Medicaid…then blame rich people…and they’ll believe ever word he says!

    They will need 2 jobs to get a decent wage, but his beloved illegals will still get free health care & the other part time jobs.

  • beth

    My daughter works at the local movie theatre. The day after the election, the boss gave all of the full-timers a choice: quit or go to under 26 hours per week. Now they need two jobs and still won’t have free health care. Yay Obama, and all you “takers” who voted for him!

  • Ms Angel

    This is exactly what Obama & Co. WANT to happen.


    Think this through.

    1. Businesses will find ways to get out of paying for health insurance thanks to Obamacare’s burdensome rules and expenses.

    2. That means more and more people will need to go on government-funded Medicaid.

    3. As more and more people go on Medicaid, more private insurance
    companies will go go out of business because they won’t have anyone to

    4. When all the private health insurance companies are
    gone, and everyone is on Medicaid, that means the liberals will have
    stealthily reached their goal of a single-payer healthcare system.

    This is exactly what liberals WANT to happen. And now it will.

    It’s disgusting that so many people are desperate for jobs! Does anyone really sit back and look at the situation? Please, I am not racist.

It’s an unbelievable amount, and they are the ones that stole this illegal election!….and they are taking jobs away from LEGAL Americans! You may be biased, and I’m sorry. But it is the truth. Accept it if you want to stay here! IF YOU AND I both want to stay in this country, we MUST fight for LEGAL immigration! Some play by the rules, and many do not. Realize, that the millions of ILLEGALS simply cash their false paychecks, and send all that revenue back to MEXICO!!!!!! That revenue doesn’t ever help this country from that point on. The government doesn’t grasp this concept. They just don’t get it or don’t care!!!!! When revenue of income can’t re-circulate, everyone loses.

  • Johnny Price

    What I am wondering, for all of those people that are fed up and being laid off or given shorter hours, where are you going to find another job. There are no more jobs. Everything that the conservatives of this country have been telling you is coming to fruition. For those that voted for Obama, this is what you wanted. You wanted the free healthcare, the free condoms, give me, give me. Let someone else pay for it. Well, it’s here, isn’t “free” wonderful. Nobody can work now. The ones that are working can’t hardly make it. Welcome to your new America. Have fun. Go pray to your god “government”. See if they are listening to you and are they gonna bless you? Better find the one true God and re-educate yourself as to what “Freedom” and “Liberty” are and what they require.

    • SonofaCV15

      Those same companies will hire other part time workers to fill the load but keep them below the healthcare threshhold. Labor stats will reflect job increases.

      Now… instead of one full time job these people will need two or three part time jobs to make ends meet.

      It’s a shell game with musical empty chairs.

  • SonofaCV15

    Actions do have consequences. Time for libs to have a rude awakening and smell the decaf.

  • RightWing ExtremeMom

    Looking at the bright side of this — as they all start quitting the part time jobs they have and looking for the full time jobs that no longer exist, maybe I’ll finally be able to get a job that can be flexible enough to work around my daughter’s schedule. It ain’t fun being an unemployed single mom. Even less fun is only finding jobs offering evening and weekend hours but paying half the cost of a qualified babysitter.

    I love to eat at O’Charley’s, but yesterday it took the waitress 45 min to serve me a salad. I was there at 11:00 AM. Not that many customers. Is this what cutting down on the number of employees does? She acted like she didn’t know what she was doing. I won’t be back for a very long time.

  • willard

    they did not read the health care bill. now you will have to get a bank account so the IRS can take the health care tax out of your account this is in the bill read it. now you will only have to work 25 hours and pay your own health care tax out of your 25 hour pay check.

  • Dawn Gemmill

    AWE…Did nobody on the lib side of the aisle anticipate such a reaction? It was bound to happen. The party that “loves the poor” just slapped the youngest and already lowest paid people in the U.S. in the face. It seems that in Obamaland,the poor get poorer and a middle class is eradicated. How is this providing opportunities to achieve the American dream? Everyone of these people will now qualify for entitlements because of the cut to their incomes, and the deficit is going to snowball even further out of control…watch out Greece, the U.S. is about to make you look good.

    They must have read the bill and found out what was in it. Hey Obama voters, you’ve been punked!

  • Emjay Graykat

    From reading these tweets they’re all part-time workers to begin with so further hours cutting is close to just flat-out unemployment. I have one banking client and one insurance client both who have informed me after the election they are cutting their training programs down to “compliance-related only” training and looking to contract the expertise out rather than invest in skills training for employees. They didn’t say anything about layoffs or conversion of W-2 employees to contractor but I guarantee that is their next step.

  • American man

    I hate to say it but that’s deserving of our once great nation. Another thing, if you thought illegals were taking jobs before because they worked for cash, just wait and see who will be filling in all your hours. people. LOL!!!

    It’s very sad to me that America didn’t want a fine, honorable, successful man that is Mitt Romney to lead this country. It’s very telling as to where the character of our nation is. They voted for Jay-Z and Beyonce. They voted American Idol – not American President. What we are seeing is just the tip of the iceberg. God help this country. Only He can.

    Many don’t realize, but during the Civil War in this country. The Republicans were of the North and wanted to free the slaves. The Democrats were from the South and wanted to keep slaves. Even though the North (GOP) freed the salves, it’s interesting that the Democrats figured out a way to get slaves back, this time with their consent-
    plus they are getting away with their population control that Margaret Sanger started in the 1900’s. Look this up this information online. Also look up Margaret Sanger. It’s true.

    I’d like to know how these people complaining about hours voted. I’m guessing a lot of them are Obama supporters.

  • Guy Smith

    I’m reading a lot of, “You got what you asked for,” type of comments, as if liberal Democrats are the only ones getting their hours cut at work. Republicans and conservatives, Tea Party members, Independents, are all getting their hours cut. Why? Because ObamaCare made 30 hours the new “full time” standard for the purpose of making employers pay for their health insurance. How much brain-power does it take for pols to realize that cutting everyone’s hours to less than 30, and hiring more part timers exempts the employer from the new requirements. And what employer wouldn’t do that? President Obama, they may not have built their business, according to you, but we all know who tore it down – Barack Hussein Obama did.

  • $24698634

    If you believe these companies are cutting hours because of Obamacare, you are dumber than you sound. The trend to part-time hours started long before Obamacare passed. Retail and restaurant chains have been using scheduling software to maximize productivity for the past decade. Obamacare is now just the cover for it. If you took off your partisan blinders you might see what’s really happening.

    • Timothy Noonan

      Indeed. Companies, retail in particular (see Wal-Mart), have been doing this for years to prevent employees from earning full-time status. Cuts are due way more to keeping profits up for stockholder and Senior Executive bonus benefit.

      • SturJen

        And just who IS the stock holder of these companies? YOU! If you have a 401(k), you are invested in companies like Wal-Mart. You expect a return on those investments, Ie: Profit. You bitch about them wanting profits, but will bitch when your 401(k) drops. You cannot have it both ways. If you want your retirement plan to grow, you need companies to profit. The way a company profits is by cutting costs. So while you’re talking about ‘greedy’ businessmen, what you’re actually talking about is yourself.

        • Timothy Noonan

          My, your 401k stake is a pebble in an ocean. An investor does expect return, but the how is important and I do not invest in Wal-mart nor do any of the funds I am in. You’re naive if you you think the everyday Joes and Janes who invest their ten shares here and there from their e-trade accounts are the investors being pandered to. Bonuses and the big investors are the reasons permanent employees are as low as possible, jobs are sent overseas when possible, payroll is as low as possible. When we regular Joes and Janes do get a bonus, we get taxed nearly 50% (has happened for years before Obama) while executives get taxes at the 15% capital gains. And if you want a little history of the business, view “The Men Who Built America” and you will see the good and the greediness of the business giants.

    • Everybodys All American

      Wake up before it’s too late. This is as direct a cause and reaction as you can find in nature. 18 new taxes are coming next year alone with the ACA though not all hit every business owner. None of these were implemented initially in order to sell you on the plan.

      Business is not partisan when it comes to the math of whether it pays to continue on in business. Once the expenses supersede the income it’s game over for business owners but first they will cut expenses where they can. As you may or may not know labor is a large cost of nearly any business and it just got larger.

      • $24698634

        But the direct cause and reaction, as you call it, started long before Obamacare.  Just pointing out the partisanship of the debate.

        • stuckinIL4now

          Well … if you want to bring up partisanship, then let’s have the conversation about how the ObamaScareTAX is totally leftist partisan as the Democrats wrote it, intentionally excluding input from Republicans, and passed it, or rather rammed it down the throats of Americans, solely on their own. Then there was the Obamuh arm-twisting and scamming of Rep Bart Stupak and his pro-life Dem coalition with the promise of a useless Executive Order, along with other dark and corrupt backroom deals like the Louisiana Purchase of Sen Mary Landrieu and the Cornhusker Kickback to Sen Ben Nelson. Yes, let’s have the disgustingly partisan debate.

    • SturJen

      Best get used to making all your stuff on you own then, because everyone is doing it. How ARE your skills? Grow your own food? Make your own house? Make your own clothes? Produce gas in your own refinery? Stitch up your own injuries?

    • stuckinIL4now

      Stop confusing “healthcare” as in MEDICAL CARE with health insurance coverage–they’re not the same thing. Was there a law prior to the ObamaScareTAX that required employers to provide health insurance coverage to its employees? No, there wasn’t. Health insurance coverage came to be provided by employers during WWII as an incentive to get workers from the limited work force to work for with their companies; it was a perk offered in lieu of money after da’ gubmint froze wages. So really your sound business practices are to do the “right” thing according to the libturd entitlement gospel even if it bankrupts your business and the country? Surprised you’re still in business.

  • mh

    all you assholes that voted for obama ushered in this new era of permanent part-time workers. if you bothered to read ANYTHING over over the past two years, you would have known that had obamacare stood, employers were poised to cut hours dramatically, so if you voted for obama, go fuck yourselves! you got exactly what you deserve. losers!

    • stuckinIL4now

      I’m not sure the low-life bottom-feeders who voted for Obamuh can read but even if they can, they were too busy before the election hate-tweeting anybody who disagreed with them to actually sit down and do any research or vetting of their candidate.

    The majority of all businesses will probably go to all less than 30 hours. The ones that don’t won’t be able to compete with the ones that do and then they will be forced to change, too. Everyone having two part-time jobs will be the new normal.

  • Michael Rome

    The only good thing about this is I may finally be able to find a job. They will need a larger part time work force at 29 hrs and I will take two of them if I can. Pretty disgusting we have reached this stage.

      That’s B.S. and you should recognize it. Businesses always want to expand if there is a demand for their product and they can afford to do so.

      It is what businesses do.

      BUT, having done the cost/benefit analyses of an Obama win or possibilities of a Romney win, we waited to see what we should do.

      When we found out Obama won, we put into place plans that would allow us to proceed best for our business.

      In my case, I’m closing it Dec 15. I’ll be just fine, financially. And I won’t be paying taxes for the near future as a result .. we “millionaires” aren’t stupid. We didn’t win the Lottery…we worked.

      My business contributed $85k this year to governments in taxes/fees/licenses/permits/etc. Guess what? Not next year.

      So deal with it. As Obama pointed out, elections have consequences. And the consequence of the election is that smart business people have already make the plans and are making the adjustments.

  • Sarah-Ashley McCall

    I told a girlfriend that a financial advisor that I know said his company lost a bunch of wealthy clients who decided to cash out and move to other countries (aka go galt). In short she said I was ridiculous for blaming the President, and he is the president so I should accept it and move on. And I quote: “Maybe they just weren’t happy with their service and it had nothing to do with the election.” I almost had no words. There is a difference between changing managers and leaving the wealth management market altogether. Plus, this all happened within 48 hours of the election…coincidence…i think not. I want whatever she is smoking. Ok maybe not.

    • Sarah-Ashley McCall

      I forgot to add that I didn’t say they blamed the pres, I just stated the facts: So and So lost X number of clients this week because they cashed out and moved out of the country.

    I don’t know the reqs to be on jobless benefits…But if they are getting rid of a load of full-time employees won’t this put a huge dent in those eligible for jobless benefits? This may be the silver lining, balance out all of the additional welfare recipients /sarc. Of course Reidiculous/Pelosiraptor may change the reqs and Obama will brag about all the people he got off of jobless benefits (Surplus!).

  • John

    And yet the Obama voters still haven’t put two and two together. The only thing that slackers are ever entitled to is being *replaceable*. Maybe it’s because I work in an engineering field, where the major factor in hiring someone is what they can do, which I measure by determining how many “dragons they’ve slain” (in a product development/problem-solving sense). If I have to interview someone and I get a vibe that he thinks he’s “entitled” to a job because of who he is, that’s a quick way to find his resume in the trash bin.

    Morons. If they want *really* good jobs, they need to find a skill that people will pay for and find some passion for it–not just liking it, but wanting to become (and remain) insanely good at it, and taking pride in their skill.

    The President “aka Obama” doesn’t run the show, he sells you a speech.

    Our leaders aren’t trying to fix our Nation, they need a collapse so a few things can happen- 1) One world currency “aka RFID chip” which is included in Obamacare. 2) Population reduction “whoever doesn’t want to be microchipped will be forced to go to a FEMA camp which there are over 800 empty camps now waiting” this is also known as the rapture where the church is removed- think Nazi concentration camps.

    The government is hard at work preparing for a revolt when shit hits the fan, notice an increase in drone planes flying in the sky, I’ve seen more and more over the past few years in Alaska, Oregon and now Hawaii where I have lived. Look up at night, odds are you will see the silent slow moving plane with red / green blinking lights.

    Google “us internment camp specialist” they are recruiting guards for the FEMA camps.

    The moral of the story is, just as the Bible has predicted, Lucifer is going to microchip and enslave everyone. “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Revelation 13:16,17
    Stop listening to the lies they tell you and do your research. The reason non of this makes sense is because we listen to lies on TV and argue over issues that don’t really matter.. Obama and Romney are one in the same, they work for illuminati. The only way to bring America down was to hijack it.. 2013 is going to be the start of microchipping, shits hitting the fan soon. The good news is Jesus, God is in control, and this is all part of the plan. We have a choice now, and since the beginning of time- Do we choose Heaven or do we choose Hell… God doesn’t send anyone, we alone send ourselves. It’s time to think eternally and about what really matters.

    • Maria Seeger

      I’m sorry, I believe in Revelations too, but with a caveat. No one knows the day or the hour, and you’re forgetting the prophecy about Israel getting attacked by Russia and Iran, and I forget what other country, but they all get destroyed and Israel is saved. But Obama is definitely *not* the Anti-Christ. He doesn’t fit the criteria, as any careful Bible scholar knows.
