“I have no friends none that are over 55 and have not been laid-off from their long-time jobs and replaced with workers who cost the company less.”
Our economy is adjusting to “the new normal”; imagine how much less employees cost if they don’t put those miserable children on the insurance plan? Imagine how much easier it is to pay someone who will probably never have a mortgage or a (planned) child?
I know a lot of people around 45 that have lost their jobs, and they are in the same boat.
Obama will never win the upcoming election; everyone in these horror stories has parents, children, siblings, spouses, friends, etc. There is no way there are enough people watching their futures disappear that will support this Bolshevik.
Notice though, nobody in his own party is challenging, so by that alone I know the fix is in. Do you really think the Communist party (and by that, I mean all of them both official and quiet) won’t use every trick they know of to get Obama reelected?
Why else would nobody under the Democrat label run for President, unless they already had the win in the bag?
