A Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees fired 22 workers today, apparently as a direct result of President Obama’s re-election.
“David” (he asked to remain anonymous for obvious reasons) told Host Kevin Wall on 100.5 KXNT that “elections have consequences” and that “at the end of the day, I need to survive.
The main reasoning for firing the “mostly Latino” voters was because of “Obamacare”.
If this guy believes that a Romney win would have meant the end of the healthcare reform, then he is smoking some serious crack. The chances that Republicans took the Senate this year was slim to none. And then you got the filibuster. For them to get a needed 60 votes to pass repeal, well now we are talking impossible.
Healthcare reform was never going to be repealed and anyone that knows anything about our government should have seen that.
Instead this is the actions of a business owner trying to influence future elections. That’s if this story is even true. I find it interesting that he didn’t have the balls to say who he was or what business he runs. Seems like someone so set on their beliefs would admit to them. I seriously doubt this happened.
