The push back against President Obama’s reelection has been fast and furious, especially among Republican business owners. Probably the greatest example of this assault on President Obama’s second term comes from Papa John’s CEO, John Schnatter, who says his employees may face reduced hours so he can afford to pay for costs associated with Obamacare. What Schnatter doesn’t tell you is that he was a supporter of Romney, and his multi-million dollar home is so large, it is widely known as the ‘little castle.’ But he’s not the only business owner to retaliate against employees because of President Obama’s reelection. Here are just a few other cases of employers who either dropped employees the minute President Obama won reelection, or announced such a plan beforehand: An unidentified Ohio man writes, I work for the oldest and largest health insurer in the state of Ohio in the underwriting department. At 9 a.m.this morning, my department (about 50) were called into a meeting in the executive boardroom. We were informed that due to a provision in the healthcare ‘reform’ effective 2014 called guarantee issue, our services would no longer be needed. Darden Restaurants, the parent company of Red Lobster and The Olive Garden, announced in October that it would test a plan that would boost the number of employees on part-time status. A man named “Stu” told C-Span that he fired workers the minute President Obama was elected. Again, he blames the Affordable Care Act. A Las Vegas CEO told radio host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that he fired 22 of his 114 employees as a direct result of Obama’s win. Wins have consequences he said. And here is a partial list of additional companies: Teco Coal officials announce layoffs Momentive Inc plans temporary layoffs for 150 Wilkes-Barre officials to announce mandatory layoffs 600 layoffs at Groupon More layoffs announced at Aniston Weapons Incinerator Murray Energy confirms 150 layoffs at 3 subsidiaries 130 laid off in Minnesota dairy plant closure Stanford brake plant to lay off 75 Turbocare, Oce to lay off more than 220 workers Here’s the thing, though; If these companies don’t like Obamacare, and what company likes to be forced to do anything, why not pressure their Republican representatives for universal care? With universal care, business bears no cost in the health care of their employees. You just can’t have it both ways, and business owners would do good to learn that. Since they’re not willing to share any of that Bentley money, or put their lobbying dollars behind universal care, they’re going to have to contribute to the health care of their employees. Life is full of all sorts of choices.. and consequences.
