Bonnie Doon Ice Cream blames Obamacare for shutdown
FOX28 ^ | 10/14/2013 | Amanda Johnson

An iconic Michiana company is closing.

Tuesday, FOX28 talked with owners of the Bonnie Doon plant and downtown Mishawaka location. They tell us there are many reasons for the shutdown such as the declining economy and the rise in production costs. But the number one factor? The anticipated cost of the Affordable Care Act.

Which is exactly why the democrats are desperate to move on to the next crisis which is immigration. The Obamacare/shutdown fight is hurting them and the idiot RINOs are ready to save the democrats from their own mess again.

Obamacare is a HUGE job killer. Not sure why this isn’t talked about more. It is a cancer eating away at the employment base.

Hopefully the people won’t forget Justice Roberts deserves all the thanks.

Because the "media" does not want you to know about it. Plain and simple.

“Obamacare is a HUGE job killer. Not sure why this isn’t talked about more.”

This is not the pre-approved MEdiaMatters/OFA Current Truth.

Only crazy tea party racist homophobic haters think Obamacare is hurting jobs. Are you a terrorist? Or an Arsonist?

Just ask anyone in the mainstream media about this./s

And as article after article states how “flawed” the ACA computer system is and how “they need to iron out the glitches”, the White Hut celebrates!! The destruction of small business and the American worker has begun. No flaws. No glitches. Just destruction.

It’s also going to take a lot of cash out of the economy. No more extra spending money available to me , no new cars, no vacations, eating out will now be only on special occasions. I am not alone on this. I will be out of 300/month due to zero care increase ( with less coverage) .

Hmmm? Tax or fee? Apparently both terms can be used as needed to fit the circumstance. Or crime if you prefer. Yeah, thanks John. Sounds like extortion to me either way. And they can “take” the fine from your bank account?! Looks like I may have to transfer any money I have to the “Bank of Serta Posture Pedic”. LOL!

-- "Bank of Serta Posture Pedic" --

The wonders of modern advertising. It's Sealy who has the Posturepedic trademark.

Serta has those sheep.

LOL! Looks like a lot of folks are in line with Serta then. “Bank Of Sealy” would be my preference in that case.

It’s not Obamacare, damnit! It’s Lucifercare.

Me too! Last year I took my daughter there when we were in town for a visit, and it was really sad how rundown it was! The ice cream wasn’t as good as it used to be either. They have been cutting corners for a long time and Obummercare was the last straw.

Long since sold to Unilever.

We will also miss Bonnie Doon’s. DH and I went there on dates, then later would take the kidlets there after trips to the zoo.
