Millions of layoffs coming as a result of Obamacare. Businesses are doing this as a matter of survival. It is cheaper for them to pay the $2000 fine than to add health care for their employees. This is unintended consequences of the law. Applebee’s, Papa John’s, and myriads of other businesses are having to lay people off.
It is also an unintended result of the election, unless both Democrats and Republicans call for the repeal of Obamacare. I doubt that it will happen. But this is the result of the great Job Creator.” With 23 million people already out of work or underemployed things will not get better. Those who are working part-time will continue to work part-time and many more workers will be reduced from 40 hour workweek to a part-time position.
All those people who wanted to freebies from the government are going to find out there are fewer people to pay taxes, and therefore the freebies they want are not going to be able to be given to them as freely as they had hoped. Actually, the entitlements are going to be less available then more available and people will notice this when they want to go to a doctor or need special care.
Is there any place for blame? I believe it rests on those who voted for Obama – the 50% – they wanted everything given to them and were willing to make tough choices. now those tough choices are forced upon them after bringing our nation to its knees economically and as a world power unless changes are quickly made in Congress. if we don’t see the TEA party get revived and the conservatives elected it can only become worse.
We must be about saving our nation and returning it to his strong foundational principles that allowed us to grow in 200 years to be the strongest country in the world. let’s stop being a bastion for beggars and be committed to individuality, fiscal responsibility, responsible citizens and a people of integrity – all this has been lost in the l decade.
