    Makes sense. Companies all over the US are now using their employees as political bargaining chips.

    Go reconcile that with your belief that corporations are fair minded.

    They are "Profit" minded! And people were trying to tell you idiot Obama voters the economic consequences of Obama's ideology!
    Ideology SHOWN by Obama's OWN words..

    "if somebody wants to build coal utility plant it’s just that it will bankrupt them,!"

    Utah company blames President Obama for 102 workers laid off

    The layoffs are necessary because of the president's "war on coal," the statement said. The slogan is one used frequently during the election by Murray Energy CEO Robert Murray, who was an ardent supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down "204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014" and for drastically reducing the market for coal.

    Obama also said "“Under my plan....electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket"
    DUH!!! companies pay electric bills also! So when their electric rates "skyrocket" CAN THEY LAYOFF the power companies??

    But then Obamacare is going to cost several times what Obama promised when he said:

    ""If you like your health-care plan, you keep your health-care plan. Nobody is going to force you to leave your health-care plan. If you like your doctor, you keep seeing your doctor. I don't want government bureaucrats meddling in your health care."

    Tell that to the employees of the 400+ employers that are going to drop employee health benefits because of Obamacare!

    "The result ObamaCare which today McKinsey & Company commissioned a survey of 1,329 U.S. private sector employers to measure their attitudes about healthcare reform concluded that 30% of all companies would stop providing health coverage once Obamacare kicked in in 2014.
    Not Found | McKinsey & Company

    But Obama being the business idiot NEVER talked to an actuary much less hundreds of actuaries and for you Obama idiots an "actuary" is the person who figures out what insurance premiums will be!

    A nationwide study conducted by Milliman Inc. for the Society of Actuaries found that nationwide the premiums in the individual market would increase from 8 to 37 percent in 2014 — with a cumulative increase of as much as 122 percent between 2013 and 2017."

    think about it! 122% increase! With the average individual health insurance premium today being $4,547 in 2011, That will be $9,000 in 2017!!!


    These are the EXPERTS that figure out how much insurance will cost!
    And they say 64% of Americans HEALTH INSURANCE will increase 122% in the next 5 years!

    So again tell me why companies are responding with layoffs being a political ploy you say??

    Some did, they told their employees that the election would have consequences, now they're just being true to their word. The dumb asses should have listened.

    Dumbass thread of the day right here.

    Nothing is any different than it was before the election except some employers are laying people off just in time for Christmas. The thought that they would have gotten any immediate relief from Romney probably is an indicator that these business people are pretty dumb. I mean...Romney would not be in office for 2 more months.

    Go figure.
