Obamacare is going to have a negative affect on Christmas sales.
It will flat-out kill them. Everyone getting a cancellation notice will have to budget in the increases to pay for Obama’s freeloaders.
A lot of other sales too. Folks who've just found out that that'll be paying $700/month for health insurance instead of the $350 a month they previously paid are far less likely to be shopping for a new set of wheels, taking expensive vacations, dining out three times a week, etc. Expect inventories at car dealerships to grow, occupancy rates at hotels to dip and restaurant sales as well and so on. All completely unexpected, of course. We'll be back in full-fledged recession by January or February 2014 (if indeed we ever left the last one). The only silver lining in this dark cloud: It may be enough to cause the scales to drop from the eyes of the LIV's who voted for the Moron-in-Chief and his Dem henchmen. Next November will be very ugly for the Dems.
