http://www.caintv.com/left-goes-bonkers-as-obamacareWe tried to tell them. You can't impose massive new health care costs on businesses without negatively impacting employment status and wage levels. But you knew they would never listen. You knew they would pass ObamaCare anyway, because they think businesses have gigantic piles of money sitting around in secret rooms somewhere, and the only reason they don't provide employees with gold-plated benefit packages - free of charge - is that they are heartless, greedy bastards who want all their workers to get sick, suffer and die.So they went ahead and passed it. And now that everything we tried to warn them of is happening, you don't think they're going to just admit they were wrong do you? No way. We're already seeing how the left intends to deal with the news of massive cuts in jobs and employee hours, especially in the food service industry. They're going to attack the companies making the moves as greedy, unpatriotic cretins who are using ObamaCare as an excuse to enrich themselves at the expense of workers and customers.Already a movement is starting to organize a boycott of Applebee's, Olive Garden and quite a few other well known chains because they are believed to be cutting employee hours - a move that allows them to avoid the requirement of paying for benefits under ObamaCare. And today the left is apoplectic over the plans of Florida-based Denny franchisee John Metz to impose an "ObamaCare surcharge" of 5 percent on meals.inevitableDon't try telling that to the left, though. They don't want to hear it. Now that the business community is doing exactly what some of said they would have to do, the left is going to launch a massive political campaign against them. Boycotts never work, so Applebee's will be fine, but if you thought Democrats were anti-business before, just wait until you see how they assail America's job creators for the rational, inevitable moves they have to make in response to the monstrosity that is ObamaCare.-----------------------------------------------------------Exactly. The rage has already started.
GOOD GOOD GOOD!However, now the Jihadis on the Left will call for boycott....as if many of those Leftist Yuppy snobs go to Denny's in the 1st place.Not only will Leftist Jihadis show their intolerance by calling for boycotts, they will show how OUT OF TOUCH they are. They'll invoke names like STARBUCKS who give better benefits to employees.Really?Starbucks's profit margin on coffee is MUCH JUICIER than is the margin at mass-market chains like Denny's so while Liberals think everyone can afford $4 coffee, the fact is that many Americans are thankful for a budge priced Grand Slam at Denny's no different than they are happy to go to WalMart to stretch their dollar.Also, Starbuck's are CORPORATE OWNED while this Denny's owner is a franchisee. So when Leftists talk about championing "small business" and being against "corporations", BULLCRAP. It's the Left who loves Wall Street and Big Corporations and loathes the little guy who had the audacity to try and become less little.JediG
The costs of increased taxation on business, whether it be from stealth taxes liberals love to implement or 0bamacare WILL be passed along to customers. There is no free lunch. So the dupes who voted for free stuff, especially those at lower income brackets will be paying a higher and disproportionate share of their income than higher earners, the very thing the stupid a$$ liberals think won't happen when they give away "free" stuff through redistribution. That's why socialist resdistributionist efforts throughout history has always failed and has adversely effected the very people these dimwits think they are trying to help. And we know that is not their true motivation anyway, it's nothing more than revenge and envy and lust for power over others.
If the tax trickle down gets me, ya, I'll pay some higher taxes.But not like most of the duefwad yuppie/hippie/liberals.I max out my 401k and my HSA.I currently don't on my wife's income...but everytime we get close to a marginal income threshold, I up what she puts in so we stay in the 15% tax bracket, despite making a good chunk over 6 figures with both of our combined incomes.We can afford to because we LBOM. Instead of spending the money, we'll just save more. That will really help the ecomony.Way to go liberals. Shoot yourselves in the foot, leg and head.decath
Exactly. The rage has already started.2828, did you see the news coverage yesterday about Hostess announcing they're liquidating, and its thousands of employees are going to lose their jobs? They interviewed some of those workers, and those people, instead of admitting they made a mistake, still insist they did the right thing by going on strike, because they could no longer put up with the company cutting wages and benefits. So now they'll have NO wages and NO benefits... and good luck finding other jobs in this economy! Stupid people -- just how did you better yourselves by striking?
