Georgia Healthcare Company to Lay Off Over 100 Because of Obamacare [video at link]
Weekly Standard ^ | September 15, 2013 | DANIEL HALPER

A Georgia health care company will lay off over 100 employees due in part to Obamacare, according to a WSB-TV report:

"We have confirmed more than 100 Emory health care employees are going to lose their jobs in part because of the Affordable (health) Care Act," said a local anchor.

"I think it's bad it's affordable health care and people are losing their jobs," said a man interviewed by the reporter.

"It's sad. It really is," said another man. "A lot of people are going to lose their homes and cars and everything they worked all their life for."

You have to view the source to figure out the real purpose behind laying off 100 staff. It sounds like they are from geriatric and stroke recovery departments. This is the Medicare cuts taking effect.

Lay Off Over 100

Perhaps you should make a list and post it every three days.

Lose their homes in Georgia? Wasn’t that where the woman said obama was going to pay her rent and car payment and keep her gas tank filled?

I wish some REAL reporter would find that woman.

No he won't. Denial has an uncanny way of suppressing empathy and compassion. On a purely emotional level, people like Slade will be secure in their belief that Obamacare is the right thing to do because it makes them feel good to believe it. And they will not allow that emotional satisfaction be tarnished by the fact that a hundred people lost the ability to pay their rents or put food on their tables. So that 'fact' is blocked from crossing that emotional threshold thus protecting them from any such emotional conflict.

Denial. Liberalism couldn't survive without it.

“They didn’t vote for this”

Did you see the people they interviewed? Definitely obama voters. Also, every person I know that is associated with Emory voted for the king.

Does anyone have a collected database of things like this on FR similar to the old “downside legacy” that was previously done? We really need it - a link to every story like this that can be copied and pasted wherever else we discuss this. There must be thousands of article and videos like this.

This is a travesty happening countless numbers of times across the nation and only being reported at a local level - they need to be collected together and the stories be told as much as possible.

One of them interviewed is such an Obama partisan that she said she was sorry they were losing their jobs but that it was “for a good reason.”

No I don’t watch it. I’ll take your word for it and a big warm slice of schadenfreude pie!

Maybe we should start a schadenfreude ping list. Taking satisfaction in the trouble these idiots have brought on themselves is one if the few pleasures left.

I used to listen to WSB in the morning just for the traffic and that Jamie guy. Could not stand Slade’s constant trashing of the tea party people and the biased phrasing of their news stories. Now I listen to that all news channel on the FM dial. I can get the traffic and news without the Obama fawning.
