COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - A Colorado Springs apartment manager threatens to raise the rent of anyone who voted to re-elect President Barack Obama.
John Obringer sent out a letter to his tenants at the Casa Adobe Apartments on Wednesday. The letter was addressing cutbacks on staff and maintenance issues.
"Due to the stupidity of the U.S. electorate, the Obama-administration's continued assault on small business is resulting in increased taxes, regulations and mandates that are forcing the management company (B&J Enterprises, Inc.) for Casa Adobe Apartments to modify its operation to survive. This has resulted in layoffs, work-time reductions and decreased pay for workers. Consequently, the business hours are now Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Please plan accordingly ... We are working hard to maintain the field, cleaning and maintenance personnel in place without raising rents, but that too is inevitable due to the upcoming inflation and market forces," writes Obringer.
"If you have any questions, comments or criticisms, please call me. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and Happy Holidays to you and yours," continues Obringer.
Then he added, "BTW: If you voted "Democrat" on Nov. 6, please notify me ASAP so I can raise your rent first to help pay for what you asked for."
"I think it's wrong. That's your constitutional right to vote for who you want," said a tenant who wished to hide her identity.
She went on to tell KRDO News Channel 13 that Obringer had already threatened to kick her out for voting for President Obama...

Elections have consequences.
The guilty should pay first.
Sorry Muffy. It's his "constitutional right" to raise his rent as high as he wants to. It's your "constitutional right" to go find a new apartment.
Good for the building owner....if his tenants want to engage in national suicide at least make THEM pay for it.
Cause when it comes to Obama...
And I think this is quietly going to go on in a lot of places. We’ve been in a cultural cold war going back at least to the 60s. I think Obama has the match lit and figures to light the wick once he and his puppet masters believe they cannot be held to account for what they’re planning to do next.
That is basically my reply to the people who call looking for donations for one cause or another. “Its Obama’s Fault”
Those tenants are probably breaking their arms from rushing to call him. That’s hilarious.
Hey libs, what’s the problem..all this manager is asking of you is to pay your “fair share.” Remember, when you spread the wealth around, its good for everyone right..so come on, cough up the cash, you voted for Obama, now it’s time to give up the bacon
“...And I think this is quietly going to go on in a lot of places....”
I know one firm that the owner walked the parking lots before the election and made note of the owners with vehicles with obama stickers. He also made note of conversations and other things that would give indication of who voted for whom.
After the election, they had the first layoff and from what I heard about 10 obamanites were first on the layoff list. Everyone else was cut back to 30 hours. “Judgement fall on the just and the unjust”. It’s “only fair” that it gets spread around.
I suggest those unhappy tenants leave Colorado Springs, they are not welcome there so they should go back to whatever place would suit their political bent. Welcome to Colorado - now go home!
The way I see it is, higher rent is all part of Barry and the ‘RATS’ “trickle up” program they always brag about. Give the freeloaders somebody else’s money because they’ll spend it and that will help the economy. Spending it on rent sounds good to me.
unDear Barry voters, lovers and worshippers,
Congrats. We are ALL rich now.
Did you think the stone you threw in the pond would not produce an outward ripple effect right back atchya?
Surfs up. Oh, and have a very Marry Barrymas.
Sure you can vote for who you want in this country, that doesn't mean you don't suffer the consequences of your vote however.
When this MORON voted for Obama, they voted for bigger government, more regulations, more compliance and more taxes. Why on earth would they be surprised their rent's going up as a result of getting what they voted for?
We will see more and more of this. They asked for this fight; now they can suffer. Companies cutting back in hours to get around DeathCare coupled with companies raising prices because they can’t get around DeathCare isn’t goig to be pretty.
This should happen every day and everywhere in America. Make them pay and shun them all.
Those that voted for Obama, or in any way whatsoever, helped that America hating bastard and the craven lickspittle democrats-trators all, get another 4 years in office should be treated like the worthless lepers that they are.
Better approach... say if raising rent 10%
MONTHLY RENT BILL
100.00 0bama Tax Increase Surcharge
(Just like the PapaJohns add-on) Let them know why costs are going up... I like it :)
He should hav told them if obama wins their rent WILL GO UP!
