    Let the bodies hit the door ​



    Written By: Bob

    All choices have compromises. By choosing to reelect an anti-business President, Americans are now facing layoffs from companies that had hoped for a Romney Presidency and the repeal of Obamacare. Those hopes gone, companies large and small are letting people go. At least 10,000 people have been let go in the past 48 hours, and companies haven’t even begun layoffs in earnest.

    A lot of conservatives seem to have recently discovered Daily Job Cuts as a way of tracking the carnage, but even though it is a good reference, it doesn’t begin to capture the magnitude of loses we can expect. Small businesses who only have a handful of employees are going to layoff staff by ones and twos and threes, and that doesn’t make even the local media. If someone postulates that we’ve already had 20,000-30,000 layoffs this week, I’d have to say that is entirely plausible.

    It is basic economics: by forcing the Obamacare mandate on the American people (without a single Republican vote in either the House or Senate) and American business, the Democratic party has imposed a huge burden on the cost of doing business in the United States. Money that would have otherwise been used for expansion, business development, and job creation is now being retasked to pay for Obamacare. This has immediate and delayed effects.

    Yup.


    And let the sequestration happen and middle class tax increases explode.

    Let those 'moderates' find out what they just voted for.

    The Mass Firings Begin​

    Obama was "fired up" and so were the voters, and so now, the mass firings begin. Here's a collection of today's headlines. Please say a prayer for the families who will be suffering. Had Romney won, many of these companies would now be hiring.

    Look at the Republicans here, all frantically cherrypicking so hard for any piece of bad news to report. They so badly want America to fail. Their ODS has gotten them to turn against their own country.

    And the war on the workers by the Republican job creators has begun.
