Skip to comments.Cause and Effect: Americans Who Voted for Obama Now Seeing Weekly Job Hours Slashed Below 30...

It is the ultimate example of how you reap what you sow: Huge numbers of American workers who voted for Obama are now seeing their own jobs slashed below 30 hours a week as employers desperately try to avoid "Obamacare bankruptcy."
Obamacare mandates for businesses only apply to those working 30 hours a week or more, and while many businesses do not want to cut workers' hours, they are being forced to in order to stay afloat. This necessary action is causing businesses to lose money and become less competitive while at the same time destroying American jobs.
Some businesses are also slashing job positions in an effort to get below the 50-employee threshold above which Obamacare mandates kick in. So across the country, we're not only seeing workers lose hours thanks to Obamacare; we're also seeing workers losing their jobs.
But the Obama administration will announce these results to be a huge "job creation success!" because workers must now find two part-time jobs that usually pay less than the one full-time job they used to have. The raw job numbers, however, will be spun by the White House into a victory pronouncement of "twice as many jobs exist now!"
Be careful what you vote for
A note to Obama supporters: When you thought you were voting for "free health care," you were actually voting to get yourself "downsized." Your vote was an act of economic suicide...

Really? Do you think that only liberals are getting laid off? Bad news: staunch conservatives can't get more than thirty hours a week, too. I hope you're a little more sympathetic toward us.
Whoa. If she is celebrating Kwanza, then it is impossible to fire her for any reason without a costly lawsuit.
I heard that list this morning on the radio and laughed out loud as I was driving to work!!
Scrolled down to a reply: #15....
I am sure all of those extra taxes on the rich will flow down to you.
Elections have consequenes.
“..I hope you’re a little more sympathetic toward us....”
To my people: Yes, absolutely.
To them: Nothing but contempt. They wanted “change”, they got it. They screwed themselves and the entire country.
The title says “Americans who voted for Obama...” Or did you miss that?
Point your cannon there.
I hope that their hours get cut to zero. words cannot describe how much i despise the bastards.
They are pretty funny...in a grim way. WE’RE “the rich” in question...
We’re ALL gonna get bounced as the country spirals “forward” into a crap bowl of hope and change.
I told them no problem: If they want to pull that race card bit. All you have to do is axked them: "Where you Black when I hired you?"
Her termination is for GROSS incompetence and being habitually late and lying. All written, checked, and approved write ups.
HR approved my request to fire on Monday before Xmas with cause. All pre-Clownza....plus it is NOT a religion.....just a celebration.
((”Oh, and she tells everyone about her awesome Kwanzaa vacation coming up! “))
Heard this on Beck this morning, looks true:
“The word “Kwanzaa” comes from “matunda ya kwanza,” which is a Swahili term for “first fruits.” The extra “a” in “kwanzaa” came about during an early Kwanzaa celebration in which seven children each wanted to represent a letter in the word, and an extra “a” was added to “kwanza” to make sure all the children were included.”
Tell her you’ll be celebrating the true “mantunda ya kwanza” and won’t need an extra ‘a’....she’s fired.
My greatest fear is that they would all slowly starve to death.
Oh, the horror.
WHERE...make that: Was you Black when I hired you?
“Cause & effect, huh. Do Big Ears voters even understand that correlation?”
No because the official party line drummed into them by the media and our public education system is that these layoffs and firings are caused by those evil, greedy rich.
I could not care less about kwanzaa. At the present time I do not know anything about it and am not interested in learning.
Not really. She was Black when she was hired, no discrimination there. Write ups are the saving factor.
Yikes! Hope you’ve got your ducks in a row! Been there and done that.
Boo f’ing hoo. Maybe next time they’ll think about NOT voting for a Socialist turd and his enablers in Congress.
I’m part of that group at 26 years old and I haven’t voted for a socialist turd, ever.
Okay, I tell a lie. I voted McCain and Romney because Obama was worse.
But having said that, what am I supposed to do now? The only reason I have a computer is because I work my extremely part-time job from it for all of $100 a week, and that’s the BEST job available to me at the moment. Other than that, I’m unemployed, have crushing student debt, and what few savings I had were used to try to pay down all the other debt that Obama’s first term forced me into.
So what do you propose that I do now? I want to be a maker and not a taker, but there’s nothing I can do! I can’t even serve in the armed forces because of my health problems.
