Well, I Guess It’s a “NewsFlash”

…because THEY certainly sound surprised.

Will Obamacare Hurt Jobs? It’s Already Happening, Poll Finds

Small business owners’ fear of the effect of the new health-care reform law on their bottom line is prompting many to hold off on hiring and even to shed jobs in some cases, a recent poll found.

“We were startled because we know that employers were concerned about the Affordable Care Act and the effects it would have on their business, but we didn’t realize the extent they were concerned, or that the businesses were being proactive to make sure the effects of the ACA actually were minimized,” said attorney Steven Friedman of Littler Mendelson. His firm, which specializes in employment law, commissioned the Gallup poll.

If the small businesses’ fears are reasonable, then it could mean that the small business sector grows slower than what economic conditions otherwise would indicate. And small businesses have been a growth engine in the economy,” Friedman told CNBC.

Nobody ever realizes the effect of NUTHIN’ ’round here, even though small business has been talking themselves blue in the face since Obama, the Democratic Senatorial cadaver and his frozen-faced Congressional harpy sorceress first conjured this abomination up.

“Surprise”, morons.

    See what happens when you listen to your littler Mendelson?

    Since Congress passed that bill, we’re certainly finding out what’s in this bill, aren’t we?

    Yeah, we certainly are. Too bad they never read it before they passed it. Might have been a different outcome if so.

    I WOULD support a constitutional amendment requiring both House and Senate to read bills aloud on the floor before passing (and having a quiz on what was read BEFORE they can vote). Chances of my amendment being passed…somewhere between zero and none. 🙁
