Obama supporters fear their rent will rise after manager makes threats

Jaclyn Rostie

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.

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.

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.

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

$1,000.00
100.00 0bama Tax Increase Surcharge

$1,100.00 Total

(Just like the PapaJohns add-on) Let them know why costs are going up... I like it :)

Ehhh.

He should have raised the rent three months before the election with a notice that he was preparing for higher taxes and costs due to increased government regulations. He should have also added that if Obama lost, he would lower rates due to the regulations not coming to fruition.

This may help you make better decisions on the people and businesses you deal with.
Go to one of the campaign finance sites ( I use Opensecrets dot org) and run your nearby zipcodes for donors. I have used that system many times over the years to make decisions on who I deal with and how I deal with the folks and businesses on my list.

I quit going to a local Chinese restaurant when the owner told me he and his wife voted for Obama. I saw him in Sam's the other day and told him why. He said that they didn't vote for him this time...I said did you vote for Romney, he said they didn't vote....I don't believe him.

My friends don't go there anymore either.

Screw'em!

I'm loving this.
Ubanga says "everybody must make sacrifices", but by "everybody", Ubanga means only those people who get up and go to work every day. He definitely doesn't mean the moochers who make up the Democrat party base. It's up to private citizens like this guy John Obringer to see to it that indeed "everybody makes sacrifices", just like Ubanga said.
Good for him.

I’ve already fired my daughters piano teacher and my haircutter because they voted Obama. I made it clear to both of them why they were fired. Also our favorite pizza place no longer gets our business and I told him too. I will not knowingly give money to anyone who voted O.

Thank you.

Another thing I have been known to do is run a sex crime search for friends or loved ones who are considering moving into a new home or apartment just to give them a heads up.

Most states have a searchable database for such things.

Yeah, some of the fast-food places near me have the panhandlers waiting right by the pick-up window; as I pass them I say “Ask Obama”. I’m not a musclehead, but I’m big enough and young enough to say that to them; they really seem to get aggressive with women.

At one point one in Newark had a panhandler waiting by the cash register (inside!); whatever they pay these “replacement Americans” to tolerate our permanent underclass can’t be enough.

The long list of groups protected against discrimination does not include political discrimination. In ‘08, two employees of an ice cream shop somewhere in the northeast were fired for supporting McCain instead of Obama by the liberal owner of the shop. The judge ruled that there is no protection from such an action.

So, you business owners keep that in mind when laying off workers because of CommieCare. His voters should get the axe first.

Our favorite pizzeria lost our business because we simply don’t have the extra money to order pizza any more; I have a car mechanic and dentist that have a list of things they’d love to do for me, but I have made it clear that the money simply isn’t there (and I won’t use plastic, which I’m paying down). Sadly, all three probably voted for Romney, though I suspect that many of their workers didn’t (not just as low-wage earners, but many of them are ethnic as well - so the stats would indicate that they weren’t hot for Romney). Three business owners are easily outvoted by twenty employees.

I’m guessing none.

I went on that site. Apparently my zip code donates 17 times more as the average. Went looking deeper. Looks like we spend more on the pubes then we do commies.

I clicked on the members running for reelection and looks likes the pubes have the majority.

Too bad we don’t make a lick of difference......except Gene Cook. Met him through the Conservative peeps here in town when I volunteered at the Hofstra Debate 08.

Gee, just got home from work.... and on a related note:

In our pharmacy, I am seeing an ever increasing Rx co-pay for people. Both generic and brand name drug co-pays $10-$30 more than a few months ago. So, we’ve been getting a lot of *itching and moaning about “why the increase cost?”.

Well, we answer, there are many mandates in obamacare and one is the implementation of “free” bc’s to women (http://www.freedomworks.org/blog/jborowski/obamacares-birth-control-mandate-contraception-is). AND, we have been seeing an increasing number of birth control co-pays pricing out at the $0.00 mark. These co-pays were anywhere from $5-$45.

We ask these upset customers where do THEY think this “lost revenue” is going to come from? It’s amazing how many variations of the “deer in the headlights look” that are expressed.

For my customers that I know are conservative - we commiserate together.

For my customers that I know are liberals and voted for zero - I say, “Well you have a job and are working. So, welcome to the new obama birth control TAX... the first of many many more.” It’s also amazing to see the variety of sneers that the human face can conjure.

Ciao

He should just raise the damn rent across the board and explain it is because of Obama's tax increases.

I saw an article yesterday about the medical device tax of 3.25% on SALES of the firm, not PROFIT. I would deal with that by putting a line item on every sale of 3.25% medical device tax as a line item on the sales receipt. Don't just absorb it. It's a federally imposed sales tax. Collect it. Let the buyer understand exactly the origin of the extra cost.

Yep, just as it is our right to say what ever we want to whom ever we want. However, one must also except the consequences for the acts. Vote for a business destroying communist and you will pay for it in increased cost for every thing, including rent. To be fair to the landlords they didn't say they were only going to raise bozo voters rent, just that they would be first in line.

Welcome to Colorado - now go home!

I used to have that bumper sticker! We became infested with way too many Californians. I always amazed me how these people were trying to escape their cesspool that they created and as soon as they got here they wanted to change Colorado into the very place they just left.
