Tag: raising taxes on the rich

Oh, the irony!

It looks like some of the left’s most avid supporters are about to get a first hand taste about how “free shit” really works as they have been notified that their hours will be cut to save the college Obamacare costs.

Pennsylvania’s Community College of Allegheny County (CCAC) is slashing the hours of 400 adjunct instructors, support staff, and part-time instructors to dodge paying for Obamacare.

“It’s kind of a double whammy for us because we are facing a legal requirement [under the new law] to get health care and if the college is reducing our hours, we don’t have the money to pay for it,” said adjunct biology professor Adam Davis.

On Tuesday, CCAC employees were notified that Obamacare defines full-time employees as those working 30 hours or more per week and that on Dec. 31 temporary part-time employees will be cut back to 25 hours. The move will save an estimated $6 million.

You have to love shit like this. I expect a lot of it is going to start happening. I know my company is already talking layoffs to deal with the tax increases and Obamacare cost increases next year, as well. And it will not stop with companies and colleges cutting jobs and cutting hours. Even the MLB has been affected.

Funny how the people that are always the ones telling us how cool this collectivist nonsense is always are the ones to try and make sure they do not get inconvenienced by the rules they want to force on others, huh?

Feeding Him Slow Pitches

In another installment of ,”Aren’t you glad you don’t live here?”, I present the president’s latest trip to the Bay Area. Into the belly of the beast, where the criticism is the loudest because the locals are hurting and just itching to blame someone for their problems, let’s hope he brought his “A” game with him to placate the angry mob. Oh wait, this is California, he gets more reach arounds here then at the CBC:

Wow, that screwfest was absolutely XXX rated, I need a cigarette after that.

The WH really must issue bullet points to all the talking heads because he sounds strikingly just like Elizabeth Warren, if Mass. does not work out for her she can certainly pull a Hillary and carpetbag right here in the Golden State, she would be more popular then boob jobs.

All of the beams that hold this socialist house erect has already pretty much been annihilated, all that stuff about no one making it on their own, how the intricate village is designed so that all the villagers (when they are not tending to the village idiots) are all cogs in the wheel, working together to move the collective forward, the wants and needs of the many. So any individual achievement is only possible because the village provided the tools necessary for that achievement.

This guy who wants his taxes raised happens to be another Warren Buffett, one of those incredibly rich folks who do not work, do not earn a salary, and do not pay income taxes, yet he thinks he can speak for all those in the work force that do pay taxes on that income, what a chowderhead.

I was watching Obama listen in earnest to the question with a nodding head like ,”OK, is this guy smart enough to read the question off of the card we gave him without gaffing it like I’m prone to do?”.

It should be noted that he and the crowd are of one mind, that the effusiveness permeating the room was felt by the whole audience and that they are reflective of a good many folks here in California where the consensus opinion is that the vision was not realized only because the opposition is “too blind to see”, that if folks would just get out of his way and allow the man, the smartest man to ever be in the WH btw, to wield his magic then we would not be in this fix and all would be right with the world. And raising taxes on people like him would be an important first step.

I understand that the class warfare“tax debate” is all Obama has left, really. He is not going to start a “cut spending debate”, or a “lets eliminate all the BS regulations so businesses can grow and hire more people debate”, or even a “maybe it’s not a good idea to raise taxes in the middle of a recession like I said several times in the past debate”.

But there are enough like minded folks around that want the rich squeezed more, so he gets more chances to preach to the choir.
