Verizon Communications, AT&T, Deere & Co. and Caterpiller have just made Obama's shit list. Why you ask? Because they wrote internal memos to their employees describing how the undocumented President Obama's takeover of the health care industry will cost millions of dollars - billions in the case of AT&T. The non-political memos stated how their company's would be affected by ObamaCare. But looking back to blacklisting of FOX News, the Obama administration again has targeted corporations that speak the truth.
Henry Waxman (D - CA), chairman of the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee, may look like the cross between a hobbit and a mouse, but he's looking to silence the opposition - a common tactic of anyone that against President Obama's radical agenda.
The corporations that are under fire are required by law, the Security and Exchange Commission, to report this information. The comments made by company CEO's go directly against what Obama promised - a reduction in the federal deficit and that everyone would be able to keep their existing plan, which is why Waxman has called them out. How dare they report the facts that again prove Obama and his minions lied to ram through a government takeover of the health care industry!
"As a result of this legislation, including additional tax burden, AT&T will be evaluating prospective changes to the active and retiree health care benefits offered by the company."
AT&T was one of the many companies that announced the new tax would severely impact the company. Health care legislation would result in a $1 billion first quarter non-cash charge against profits. But this can't be - Obama promised that everyone would have lower premiums and we'd save money.
Last summer, it was reported that many large corporations had these details already figured out, but were told to keep quiet about them. The only way to stop a bully is a call it a bully. Michelle Malkin had a great idea, where CEO's of businesses large and small flood Capital Hill with signs stating how much ObamaCare is costing their company. This type of stance would put Obama and the Democrats in their place.
Corporations have likely been afraid to speak out against Obama and his takeover of the health care industry based on the administration's past. They've blacklisted FOX News, the Chamber of Commerce and anyone that speaks out against them. This is what Hitler did in Nazi Germany. It's what the dictator Hugo Chavez does in Venezuela. Does anybody really need more proof of how radical the Obama administration is? Telling companies to keep their mouths shut about how badly health care reform will hurt their companies and likely cost them thousands of jobs? That is the closest thing to a dictatorship that America has ever seen.
It's about time we as a country stand up against the little creep and freakish-looking Henry Waxman and Obama and tell the country what the White House is trying to hide. The numbers don't lie, unless it's the numbers that were pulled out of thin air to budget health care reform. These CEO's will likely comply because, if they don't, they can expect to lose any government contracts that they have and have a class-action lawsuit from the shareholders by not reporting to the SEC.
This has NOTHING to do with health care or jobs. It's about money, power and control of our lives. These companies are what keeps America the most prosperous nation in the world. And somehow, some nobody with a past filled with anti-Semites, Communists and terrorists gets elected by 52.7% of the idiots in this country and we are paying dearly for their complete stupidity.
When people are frightened to report the truth out of fear that the government will reprimand them, that is proof that we're losing everything that made this country so great - and it's because of some idiot in the White House with dumbo ears and an ego the size of Michelle Obama's lips.
