Companies laying off due to Obama?
Well, the owners and CEO's will always make sure they get theirs. If operating costs increase, they will make their money and do whatever they need to do to make it. If the minimum wage increases or healthcare cost go up, your boss will decide to either increase fees for their product and/or decrease the number of employees they employ. Most could care less about the people it ultimately affects as long as they get theirs.
Is it due to Obamacare? Each case is different and it could be hard to throw a blanket over it and claim it is indeed from Obamacare. Could it also be a way for conservative business owners to send a message to employees (mainly Liberal employees) that any election CAN have an immediate affect on their life and sort of pay them back for electing Obama?
