Kathleen Sebelius keeps saying there’s no data to support the idea that the health care law is adversely affecting business. So here’s a piece of data for her:

    Saw this, so sad for him. I’m sure he’s not the only business owner going through this. What a trainwreck.

  • 12grace

    I’m so sorry for this businessman, it’s a two-fer for the left, they get to take down another business man and devastate another white person.

  • Jaels_Song

    Here comes his IRS audit.

    • InfoDump

      Yep.

    • Press Watchusa

      I live across the street – the IRS just arrived!

  • giveususfree

    “MEH! He’s just some OLD, WHITE GUY, so who cares, he’s just being SELFISH and would rather sit on his big pile of MONEY like SCROOGE McDUCK instead of helping the POOR get healthcare! Ack! And he’s from TEXAS, Jeez, probably some big RACIST! Yeeeah!”

    • InfoDump

      Hey, I think she was arguing with Dan Bongino on Hannity’s radio show!

      • giveususfree

        Could be, that Roginsky chick is insufferable.

  • PNWShan

    He was giving his employees what they valued: more in their paycheck so they could decide to spend that on healthcare or not.

  • Press Watchusa

    Who will you believe – this silly/deluded “business owner” or– OBELIUS?

    Wait! – What?

  • Yazz55

    This story will be repeated thousands of times all across the USA.
    Of course the donkey politicians and their lapdog media will either ignore it or blame it on anything and everything except obamacare and the obamessiah himself. Expect the TEA Party to be at the top of this spin and blame routine.

  • peter ingrassia

    why should o bama care about the little people he and his kids get free health care till they die

    • Freddie Sykes

      Hey, you are just jealous because you do not get to use 3 separate jets to fly the family and your dog to Martha’s Vineyard for vacation. You probably have to cram everyone into your tiny private jet.

      Who wants to make their entrance on the island smelling of dog?

  • kong1967

    She’s beating O’Reilly in the ratings. It’s great seeing him knocked off his perch.

    It’s bad enough that it’s going to really hurt the middle class and diminish it by an untold amount, but the bill doesn’t even help the people the liberals claim it’s designed to help. It’s forcing their hours to be cut and forcing them to pay money for insurance they don’t want when they have even less money than before.

    Liberals make me sick. They will destroy anyone for their agenda, including the people they claim they represent.

    • jetpilot

      “Liberals make me sick. They will destroy anyone for their agenda, including the people they claim they represent.”

      Thanks Kong. The “Destructive Party” is destroying America. I can’t believe we allowed this to happen! Liberalism is a mental disorder!

      • kong1967

        We did allow it to happen gradually over the years. Republicans never pushed back. When do we see things swinging back to the right? It’s never “how much do we cut back on government spending and freebies?”…..or “how much do we cut back on union benefits that far outweigh the private sector pay?”. It’s always “how much MORE do we give away?” or “how much larger are we going to make government?”.

        We allowed it to continue until the takers outweigh the payers. With the voter fraud, it may be too late to do anything about it now.

    • Conservator1

      Ditto that………………

  • spin43

    The federal government will basically own all property in a few years.

    • tinlizzieowner

      That’s precisely the idea. Welcome to the USSA under Premier Obama.

  • CalCoolidge

    CNN home page has zero items about Obamacare.

  • colliemum

    That’s the result desired by the POS and his prog minions: the destruction of the middle class business people, who own their small businesses and employ millions of people.

    After all, so what if you’ve got no job now, or have to work two jobs thanks to the POS – you’ve got healthcare! Never mind you didn’t want it: your ‘want’ doesn’t come into it.

    Of course, there’s another ‘desirable’ side effect (desirable for the left): they can blame all who are now jobless thanks to O’Care on the greedy businessmen who didn’t want to pay extortionate sums into O’Care.

    One wonders if the POS and his prog minions ever heard about the goose who laid the golden egg and what happened to her …

    • Conservator1

      Obamacare is destroying America and he must be impeached. Obama rules his regime like a merciless king rather than a president. As the many problems with healthcare exchanges continue to mount, he had the gall to blame big bad insurance companies for his FAILURE.

      But that won’t stop King Barack who issued an executive EDICT yesterday:

      Obama creates climate change task force
      http://www.usatoday.com/story/theoval/2013/11/01/obama-climate-change-task-force/3348083/

      “President Obama issued an executive order Friday creating a “Task Force on Climate Preparedness and Resilience.”

      The group will “advise the Administration on how the Federal Government can respond to the needs of communities nationwide that are dealing with the impacts of climate change,” said the White House.

      The task force will include state, local, and tribal leaders from across the country…”

        Mornin’ friend:

        You know how the Bible refers to signs and wonders in the sky, both in the Old and New Testaments?

        Well NASA confirms that there are four “blood moons” coming up, with a solar eclipse in the midst of them. History shows us that when events like this occur, something major takes place, which includes the Jewish people.

        In addition these blood moons will fall directly on Passover, then the Feast of Tabernacles, then Passover again, then the Feast of Tabernacles again, starting this Spring.

        http://www.wnd.com/2013/11/weekend-sky-to-feature-heavenly-sign/

        I figured a lot of folks here would find this very interesting, and just thought I’d put it here. There are many other places on the web that talk about this too.

        Hopefully our moderators will let it stay here.

        • badbadlibs

          obammy will usher in the end of the ages, I have no doubt about that. The left are drunk on evil and a power they never dreamed they would so easily accumulate.
          They are blinded and were born as vessels of dishonor, their time is short and to that they are also blinded
          The portion of mankind that makes up the left thinks they are impervious to any Spiritual reality.
          Americans are experiencing the “sticker” shock of just one of the left’s ideas, wait until the left experiences the Spiritual sticker shock that awaits them….they will NEVER pay off that debt.

          • http://PolitiBrew.com Rshill7

            We certainly live in strange times. Communists and Socialists here in America are out of the closet and growing bolder and bolder.

            Do these upcoming celestial events predict the end of the age or anything else? I don’t know, and neither do they who speak of them. I haven’t heard of anyone predicting Christ’s imminent return, but we do know it will occur sometime, because He said it would.

            These events in the heavens just really make me say hmmmm, and wow. Truly, no man knows the day or the hour of Christ’s return. Could it be this soon? Sure. Will it? No one should be willing to predict it, and certainly not I. But believers should always be ready. I just find the upcoming events very, very, interesting.

            On the other hand, God has certainly used celestial events in the past to announce things to us. What might his announcement refer to this time, if anything? We’ll have to wait and see :-)

            • badbadlibs

              Jesus spoke spoke in Matthew 24 of celestial occurrences:
              Matt. 24:29
              Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
              It does make one wonder, but your advice to be “ready” is the most important advice of all.
              The bible is clear that we are to make our election “sure”!
              Jesus also spoke in Matthew that for the “elects” sake He will shorten those days of the tribulation, so we know if we are still on this earth that we will experience what the left is ushering in by their wretched ideology.
              Of course all these celestial occurrences are only predictors to the left of “global warming” or “climate change” or whatever title they have given to another of their big lies. ‘;-)

        • Conservator1

          Thanks much for sharing – I enjoyed reading the article. I use to watch Pastor John Hagee and many others like Benny Hinn and Hal Lindsay who have been preaching about the ‘End Times’ for most of my life. I’ve actually posted a few times that it’s remarkable how Biblical prophecy over the years seem to be coming to fruition.

          Below is a video of Pastor John Hagee on Fox News discussing blood moons (7.3 minutes long):

          MUST SEE!! Fox News Asks If 4 Blood Moons A Sign Of Apocolyptic The End Times

    • Dr. Strangelove

      The goose doesn’t matter. They’ll take care of themselves and their luxurious lifestyles no matter how poor the rabble become. While the store shelves were bare in the USSR, I doubt Stalin wanted for much. Dictators always manage to support their lavish appetites on the backs of the poor.

      • colliemum

        Sure, that’s right – but the luxurious lifestyles of the Nomenklatura in the Communist countries of the Eastern Bloc where nevertheless way less luxurious than those available to ordinary middle class people in the (then) free Western capitalist countries.
        The point is that those in the Nomenklatura don’t give a d*mn about how impoverished the producers are whose wealth they consume, but that wealth gets diminished more and more by the oppressive stranglehold of a socialist/communist regime.
        In the end, all but the Nomenklatura live like being inside the GULAG.

  • Sentinel

    Funny how Nobama and ‘See-be-like-us’ (Sebelius) have such selective listening. Oh wait, they’re NOT listening… my bad. Typical imperial attitude.

    • badbadlibs

      “Whateverah”
      ;)

  • Army_Pilot1967

    I suppose the libs are happy with the results of obamacare thus far….business owners are selling due to the spiraling costs of that terrible, terrible law; many workers are now part-times for the same reason…so who’s benefiting from this healthcare fiasco? Must be the low information people, illegals, and others that don’t contribute to the economy in any manner.

  • demographicallychallenged

    The plan is working. Small business is shrinking, big business grows(union workers)Doctors leaving to be replaced by large ER type practices(walk in clinics). The elimination of the middle class and the chance of upward mobility.

  • RestlessLegs

    Even the libs can’t ignore this train wreck. A coworker – who always has liberal bumper stickers on her car – recently removed her “I love Obamacare” sticker. She left the “2012 Obama Biden” sticker in place, but she seems to be struggling with some serious cognitive dissonance right now!

    This is such a crime against freedom. liberty and all American’s, it must be stopped at all cost.

    May God Bless America

    • badbadlibs

      I believe that God will bless America once again, when and if she blesses Him once again.

      Right now, the majority of Americans have put Him on the backburner and elevated government in His place. :(

      • timerunnersc

        Thank you badbadlibs, that song is absolutely moving and inspiring, wow, I can still feel the goose bumps an a little teary eyed too (-: what a beautiful reminder of where our home is and who is our King.

        There is quite a story about Building 429, A few years ago on FM Radio WMHK 89.7 , I listened to them tell the story about how they came up with the name, they are a super Christian band.
        By the way the WMHK means “We’re Making Him Known” we keep the radio stickers on our vehicles and have for over 20 years. They are part of a local Christian College called, Columbia International University. It was founded in 1923 then named Columbia Bible School.
        Your right I’m sure God will Bless America again as long as we have Christian’s in our notion who is Blessing him., but its he will be done that we trust, even though there are times we can’t understand, we trust him.

        Thanks again for the song, it really blessed me. From here we’re sending blessings to you too my friend.
        I pray he is with us and blesses us when we’re in DC November.

        • badbadlibs

          I pray He is with all those who attend in November as well!
          And thank you for the info concerning the band!
          That song should be the Anthem of each Christian as we approach the perilous days ahead. It gives comfort to remember what awaits those who are the Blood bought Church of the Living God and that this is really not our home.
          This world belongs to the leftist who is hell bent on their own destruction as the Word of God has told us.
          May you know ALL the fullness that God has for you and yours!

  • mikeinidaho

    The idiot communist Obamanites got what they wanted. Let them choke on it.
    After the collapse and the 2nd American Revolution, we’ll start over. First to go are every Obama Regime worker and supporter. With God’s help, We the People will take back our country.
    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

    When are the 51 percenters going to wake up . Enought is enought , and the SIX TRILLION DOLLAR MAN HAS TO GO .

    • Grumpa37

      Isn’t he a seven or eight trillion waster by now? Six trillion is enough to hang him (politically and fiscally), but I think he’s squandered much more than six.

      • Laurel

        I think you are correct.

        • Grumpa37

          Thanks for the reply.

  • Grumpa37

    Question: Are enough of us angry enough to mount a taxpayers’ revolt? Most of us receive some of the money in our bank accounts by way of one or more agencies in one or more governments (federal, state, county, or municipal), but sending no tax returns to the IRS would reduce revenues to the regime, *and* eventually eliminate the IRS; two “goods” for one.

    • TKWink’057

      Suggestion: Everybody change W2 form and instead of giving DC a Non Interest Bearing Loan & waiting on a refund, make deductions. 7-9, legally can be done, and make DC wait for any taxes you may owe at year end! Save $100-$200 to cover the taxes owed at year end but make “2012 the last Record Taxes Paid/year” in HISTORY! Make that puny liberal ex police officer now millionaire Harry Reid eat his words.

      • Grumpa37

        Thanks for the idea. I think it will not change my situation. This year, for the first time in my retirement, I’ve sent estimated taxes which *should* leave me having to pay a few hundred dollars on April 15. As you have suggested? A good suggestion. I hope lots of people use it.

      • ApplePie101

        Everyone should see the full sum of what they pay in taxes.

  • standbesideherUSA

    Right now, I’m thinking about the fact that this man would not have had to sell his successful business without the last-minute, galling, intervention of CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS! This is justice for this enterprising American, sir????

    ROBERTS is JUST AS responsible for this horrible blight on America and the American People. His name needs to be FOREVER front and center, also.

    For the collaborative efforts, obamacare should be renamed, again. It’s not obamacare, it’s not the affordable care act, it’s………………………………………………..
    ”WE-O’ROB-AND-WE-DON’T-CARE.”

    The hard-working American People are being ‘robbed’ by elitists who just ‘don’t care’ about us or generations to come.

    Lord help us to rid this country of corruption and become, once again, ONE NATION UNDER GOD. PERIOD.

    Oh there is tons of data but if she doesn’t collect it or read it then it doesn’t exist. this administration is made up of children.
