Just after Obama's re-election the stock market dropped over 300 points. Yeah, but that had nothing to do with HIS re-election. Tell that to the people who now face Christmas without any job.
The ObamaCare mandate forces employers to buy insurance that they cannot afford. Employers have a solution. They reduce the mandated number of employees. The bottom line is that employers are finding it cheaper to fire or lay off people and hire them back as part-time help (if re-hired at all).

Welcome comrades to ObamaMerika! This is what you voted for and this is what you get. This President is well on his way to collapsing the economy once and for all with his government takeover of your health care and HIS anti drilling regulations. Better red than dead?
Action To Take
Tell Congress NOT to provide ANY funding towards ObamaCare.
