You know this has nothing to do with Obama's second term, right? It doesn't start until January 20th. Oh my god, shocker!


Actually, you're wrong, in at least a few of the instances. I'm not digging up every company listed, but the few I recognize on there already stated that, if Obama won re-election, then they were making the cuts to prepare for the increased costs coming up.
So yeah, it actually does have a lot to do with that. And his promise to punish success with higher taxes yet again.


About that high tax thing that was caused by George Bush and his plan is gonna start in 2013 and obama is trying to stop it by passsing a bill that only taxes the high class. And before you go talking about these "increased costs" these increase costs are going on the rich families whom makes 250,000 dollars or more.

I heard.
Obamacare can cause that.
The layoffs.
Under the Affordable Health Care Act, businesses with more than 50 workers are required to provide health care coverage for full-time employees or those working more than 30 hours per week.
It's cheaper for businesses to layoff people to stay in business.
That's what I heard.

IMHO
Those companies were going to make those cuts no matter who won. The only difference is that now those companies and people like you have the liberty of blaming Obama. Some of them did threaten that they were going to make cuts if Obama won but part of that was their way of dictating who people vote for.

Obama supporters don't care about the common folk. They just glad their god is back in. dramallama


Wait what???? rofl
This is FOX News level of delusion. This is honestly the first time I've heard that one.
Obama supporters are the common people. I only have one God and he's the one in heaven.
The common person may need healthcare, financial aid, unemployment aid, welfare, the ability to make their own decisions and not have to deal with the economy being "fixed" using the trickle down effect that has failed already.

The companies she pulled up were companies that threaten their workers to vote Republican. They had the balls to go through with it and now being sued.

Obama's not trying to stop s**t. And the 'high tax'? You mean the tax cuts that Obama can't stand? The ones he refused to sign off on or make permanent? The large tax cut that the middle class got, in spite of the left lying and saying that it was 'for the rich', when the highest part of tax cuts there went to the middle class?

About 100 employees at Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, most of whom work in the San Fernando Valley, were laid off Wednesday in response to dwindling government spending on space exploration, the company said. The layoffs were effective immediately, and 75 percent of them came at the facilities on Canoga and De Soto avenues, which employ about 1,100 people. The company has six sites across the Valley.

How does it feel to know that this is what you voted for, Democrats? Your vote, your choice, your responsibility.

I hope your entitlements are worth the thousands of jobs lost.

This is just the start. This is the result of your vote. You can be butthurt about the truth all you want (Divine and Lygarrrrr) but this is on you. I am taking it upon myself to inform you of the consequences of your choice. Every day.

You can no longer blame others.

Yes. Cause Obama told those companies to lay people off. Cause he's the boss of all the companies and the world and all the satellites and the moon.

And you know what? This happens all over the world. America's a big country, so of course the numbers are going to seem huge.

How do people read this and think Obama's the a*****e? These jerk off companies are so cheap they'd rather fire people than offer their workforce basic medical insurance.
