Well they also think tax cuts is giving money (not taking less). It is all give me give me give me.. They want “jobs” they want the “rich” to pay their “fair share” but they complain over lay offs in light of what is happening. They want these business to go bankrupt, it is part of the plan to lower the US in order to raze the rest of the world.
We need to stop being angry. Let the hard core liberals fire away! Support bussiness that you feel do the right thing and stop patronizing bussiness (or entertainers) that you believe do things you don’t approve of. We shouldn’t scream boycot of anyone but make a conscious choice of who gets our dollars or attention. Conservatives must make everything about personal responsibility. That is how we should teach our children and maybe that becomes a way to move the masses in the middle. It may also be the bridge to bring fiscally conservative but socially liberal people to our side.
According to Free Rider Provision of Obamacare, a business has to offer qualified, that is full service and thus very expensive, health care or face a fine. If they do offer qualified health care and any of their employees share of premiums for it exceeds a certain 9.5% of income, the employee can apply for a government subsidy. If that happens, the employer faces a fine. The issue gets murky with respect to family policies which tend to cost significantly higher premiums and the fact that the employer is unaware of total family income,.

Great idea! If this boycott works, then that restaurant closes down and everybody loses their job! It’s a win-win! Hey, let’s boycott every private sector business, teach those bloodsuckers what it means to stand against The People!

Applebees is the villain here? Nope, they’re going into hunker-down mode, as anyone who has any assets and brains should be considering right now.
It’s the same reason jobs are fleeing overseas. When you make doing business in America the greatest opportunity, jobs will come flooding back. Not before. And not just because you shake you finger at the employers, Barry.
We sure as hell did build that, but you’re tearing it down faster than we can prop it up. That’s not sustainable.
