Okay, now this one's slightly different, but it's an effect of Barack Milhous' medical care bills--from October 31, a few days before the election:

Med center layoffs may be harbinger

Hospitals across Nebraska are looking to reduce costs to respond to cuts in Medicare reimbursement rates, a hospital group said Tuesday after the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha announced job cuts.

Thirty-eight employees at the Nebraska Medical Center will lose their jobs by the end of the year, and 100 open positions will remain unfilled, med center officials announced Tuesday......

How Many Businesses Have Announced Closings or Layoffs Since Obama Won A Second Term?
Posted on November 8, 2012 at 9:29pm by Mike Opelka

Editor’s note: We’ll be discussing this story and all the day’s political news on our live BlazeCast at 1:30pm ET:

Do elections have consequences? If you have been paying attention to the financial markets, you might think so. Wall Street has had two horrible days since President Obama won a second term.
 
However, stock prices are not the only thing taking a hit. It appears that the job market is also suffering. In the last 48 hours, the following major corporations have announced layoffs in America (links take you to news stories about the layoffs – with details from the companies):
 
• Energizer -

The St. Louis-based company said Thursday that it expects to shed about 1,500 employees. When finished, the restructuring should lead to $200 million in pretax yearly savings, Energizer said. It aims to have most of its restructuring steps finished by the end of September 2014.
 
• Exide Technologies -
 
Exide Technologies announced Thursday that it will be idling its lead-recycling operations in Laureldale and laying off 150 workers, effective no later than March 31.

• Westinghouse -

Westinghouse Anniston, the contractor responsible for shutting down Anniston’s chemical weapons incinerator, has reduced its workforce by another 50 employees.
 
• Research in Motion Limited -
 
Research in Motion Ltd., the maker of BlackBerry smartphones, laid off about 200 people at its U.S. headquarters in Irving on Wednesday, according to a source close to the company who did not want to be named.

• Lightyear Network Solutions -
 
More than one dozen employees at a Pikeville company lost their jobs this week. Officials with Lightyear Network Solutions said they are consolidating offices in Louisville and Pikeville to save money.
 
• Providence Journal -

The Providence Journal Co. laid off 23 full-time workers Wednesday as part of a cost-cutting effort, including 16 members of the Providence Newspaper Guild and 7 non-union employees.
 
• Hawker Beechcraft -

The company says 240 employees will lose their jobs with the closing of Hawker Beechcraft Services facilities in Little Rock, Ark.; Mesa, Ariz.; and San Antonio, Texas.
 
• Boeing (30% of their management staff) -
 
Boeing Co. said Wednesday it plans to employ 30% fewer executives at its Boeing Defense, Space & Security unit by the end of 2012 compared to 2010 levels.
 
• CVPH Medical Center -

CVPH Medical Center has handed pink slips to 17 employees. The layoffs — nine in management and eight hourly staffers — are part of an effort to “help bolster the hospital’s financial position in 2013 and beyond,” a press release said.
 
• US Cellular -
 
The move will result in 980 job cuts at U.S. Cellular, with 640 in the Chicago area, according to a spokeswoman. The cuts are slightly under 12 percent of the approximately 8,400 total employees U.S. Cellular had at the end of the third quarter.
 
• Momentive Performance Materials -

About 150 workers at Sistersville’s Momentive Performance Materials plant will be temporarily laid off later this month, officials said this week.
 
• Rocketdyne -
 
About 100 employees at Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne, most of whom work in the San Fernando Valley, were laid off Wednesday in response to dwindling government spending on space exploration, the company said. The layoffs were effective immediately, and 75 percent of them came at the facilities on Canoga and De Soto avenues, which employ about 1,100 people. The company has six sites across the Valley.
 
• Brake Parts -

The leader of an automotive parts plant in Lincoln County has told state officials that there are plans to lay off 75 workers starting in late December…The layoffs are expected to start Dec. 28 and continue in the first quarter of 2013
 
• Vestas Wind Systems -
 
Vestas Wind Systems A/S (VWS) is seeking to sell a stake of as much as 20 percent and said it’s reducing headcount by 3,000 to raise the staff cuts by the biggest wind turbine maker to almost a third over two years.
 
• Husqvarna -

Husqvarna AB (HUSQB), the world’s biggest maker of powered garden tools, plans to cut about 600 jobs in a move that will save 220 million kronor ($33 million) a year by 2014.
 
• Center for Hospice New York -
 
The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care plans to temporarily lay off as many as 40 employees next year as it embarks on a major renovation of the inpatient unit at its Cheektowaga campus.
 
• Bristol-Meyers -
 
Bristol-Myers Squibb is following up its lackluster third-quarter results with almost 480 layoffs. As Pharmalot reports, the company notified the New Jersey government that it would scale back in Plainsboro, which means the cuts will hit its sales operations.
 
• OCE North America -
 
Trumbull printer- and scanning-equipment provider Oce North America, Inc. will lay off 135 workers in three Connecticut communities, including East Hartford, according to its notice with the state Labor Department.
 
• Darden Restaurants -

The company, which was among those who had received an Obamacare waiver in the past, is looking to limit workers to 28 hours per week. A full time employee that is required to have health insurance (lest the employer pay a fine) works 30 hours per week, as defined by the Obamacare law.
 
• West Ridge Mine -

In its statement, UtahAmerican Energy blames the Obama administration for instituting policies that will close down “204 American coal-fired power plants by 2014″ and for drastically reducing the market for coal.
 
• United Blood Services Gulf -
 
United Blood Services Gulf South region, the non-profit blood service provider for much of south Louisiana and Mississippi, will lay off approximately 10 percent of its workforce. It was a hard decision to make according to Susan Begnaud, Regional Center Director for the Gulf South region.
 
A layoff is tough enough for employees to deal with, imagine hearing the crushing news that your office is shutting down just before Thanksgiving and Christmas…  Here are some of the business closings that were announced in just the past two days:

ʉۢCaterpillar Inc. will close its plant in Owatonna Minn.
 â€¢Mount Pleasant’s Albrecht Sentry Foods
ʉۢThe Target store at Manassas Mall Va.
ʉۢMillennium Academy in Wake Forest NC
ʉۢTarget Closing Kissimmee FL Location
ʉۢThe Andover Gift Shop in Andover MA
ʉۢGrand Union Family Markets Closing Storrs Location CT
ʉۢMovie Scene Milford Location NH
ʉۢUpdate: TE Connectivity Closing Greensboro Plant Р620 Layoffs Expected
 â€¢Gomer’s Fried Chicken in South Kansas City

Floodgates Open on New Health Regs

http://nationaljournal.com/domesticpolicy/floodgates-open-on-new-health-regs-20121109

Quote
Many sources close to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told National Journal that the administration had a number of important health rules ready to go  but was holding them back until after the election to avoid a political backlash. Now that President Obama has been reelected, they predicted those rules would start emerging, and fast. The forecast is about right. We are now three days postelection.

This is the letter that was sent to Jeffery Zients (Acting Director OMB) from Senator Chuck Grassley and Senator Kelly Ayotte in regards to the Department of Labors instruction to defense contractors to disobey the WARN Act (prior to the election) and in fact offer to pay any legal liabilities that might arise.

While a little old, being date Oct 1 2012, and a little long it's still something that I think a sizable portion of the electorate understands but little.

I hope it's OK that I put this post in this thread.

Chicago held a job fair, people became frustrated because they had to wait in line for hours to find out they'd have to fill out an application online, Rahm Emmanuel showed up and was given an earful by people waiting online, Rahm said this “The reason there’s frustration is not for the two to three hours here, it’s for the two to three years they’ve been waiting [for a job],” I guess they didn't put 2 and 2 together.

Also someone said this at the job fair:

Thanks for the link. The article is a must read as it's another perfect example of how gov't manages to **** everything up. It wasn't even a stinking job fair, it was a seminar telling people how to get a job. Not much help for all those people desperate for a work in this 0bamaconomy that figured on handing in resumes and being interviewed on he spot. Ya know, the kind of thing that happens at an actual job fair?

Record 70.4 Million Enrolled in Medicaid in 2011: 1 Out of Every 5 Americans

Quote
(CNSNews.com) – A record 70.4 million people were enrolled in the Medicaid health care program for the poor in fiscal year 2011, according to government figures provided to CNSNews.com.

That figure equals about 22 percent of the population, which means there was one person on Medicaid for every 5 Americans in 2011.

At the link about the Chicago sham "job fair," there are over 2,100 comments, and not a single libtard. 

Extremely hilarious about "better get a Walmart gift card."  You'll get nothing, and get used to it.

State Job and Family Services officials tried to appeal the change to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which oversees the food stamp program, officially known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, but the USDA denied the request.

USDA officials did not respond to requests from The Blade for comment.

Says that the reason for the cut was a mild winter LAST YEAR, combined with low natural gas prices.

If that's the case, the fedgov needs MORE global warming, so they can cut benefits even more, right?

HOWEVER, they are predicting a colder, wetter than normal winter this year.

That extra $50 could buy enough heating oil to last about, oh, 2 days.   :lmao:

Elections have consequences, DUmmies.  Enjoy!

Global warming supporters believe that a few hundred million tons of CO2 has more control over our climate than a million mile in diameter, unshielded thermo-nuclear fusion reactor at the middle of the solar system.
