Utah Employer Blames Obamacare for Layoffs; Admits He Started With Obama Supporters

A business owner in Utah has become the latest employer to blame President Obama's health care reform bill for layoffs and has doubled down on his public disdain for the current administration by admitting he singled out Obama supporters.

Terry Lee, owner of Cedar City-based Terry Lee Forensics, told the Salt Lake Tribune that he was so impressed by a Vernal, Utah, smoothie bar's policy of asking liberal patrons to pay more, that he, too, took action to recoup losses he said were incurred by Obamacare.

    Hey, if you think X is such a good idea, why, of course you're willing to pay for it, right?
    The 50's H'wood black-list certainly had some problems, but ya know, if you propose communism, I (as an employer) might well choose to hire someone else and also tall other employers you favor stealing their property! Surprise!

    Too bad Obamacare doesn't apply to his business because it has less than 50 employees... so he's just an ass.
