Walmart Bails On Obamacare-Sticks Taxpayers With Employee Healthcare Costs: We are shocked to find that when Obama told us “”if you like your current insurance you will keep your current insurance” he was lying. But at least our health care costs are going to go down by three thousand percent, right?

I hate to say this, but it’s starting to get boring.
Obama promised (insert promise here) and we found out he lied.
Get over it already, he’s full of shit, and we all know it.
Let’s move on and see what we can do to survive till 2016.
I for one, plan to be ready to go underground.
It’s all so exhausting. No matter what happens, the left and the recipient class will think everything is perfect, no matter how bad it gets.

Look at Obama’s nose up in the air at the beginning of the first clip. I have problems with Wal-Mart. Their profits are astronomical and I think they could pay better wages and provide their employees with great health insurance while still making an enormous profit. I’m not saying I want the government to punish them, but why should American taxpayers through Obamacare have to cover their employees health insurance while they horde profits? They’re gonna be knocking a lot of their employees down to 29 hours a week and then give the American taxpayer the bill for their employees’ health care. When financially struggling, I’ve sometimes shopped at Wal-Mart. But then I have pangs of conscience thinking I’m helping Chinese slave labor. I try to match any money I spend there with a donation to a Catholic group which helps the underground persecuted Church in China.

“In January 2006, Wal-Mart announced that ‘diversity efforts include new groups of minority, female and gay employees that meet at Wal-Mart headquarters in Bentonville to advise the company on marketing and internal promotion. There are seven Business Resource Groups: women, African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, Gays and Lesbians, and a disabled group.’”

Why is it necessary to know someone’s sexual orientation in the workplace? Just do your job, I don’t wanna know about your orientation. It’s like they’re obsessed that you know their orientation and accept their behavior. I and many others, don’t. Male and Female are genders, immutable characteristics (Despite the sex change operation nonsense). Hispanic, Asian, Native American, Caucasian, these are skin colors, again, immutable characteristics. Disabled is a condition that eventually comes upon many people. But Gay and Lesbian involves behavior, not an immutable characteristic!

So Walmart sends the cost of a new entitlement directly to the taxpayer (a perfectly valid measure in the context of this completely corrupt Obamacare program . . . and perhaps what is truly desired as this legislation is intended to segue into uhc) instead of passing the cost onto the consumer, passing the cost onto the stockholders or cutting employment. All to remain in compliance with a new entitlement program. One that does not benefit the producers in this country, one that benefits people like John. Greedy plunderers that never pay their fair share.

Yet we are supposed to demonize Wal-Mart over this? For what?

Because they have followed the Obama plan for healthcare.
Obama wants this in order to continue his class warfare battle, because he wants the lemmings to believe he will save us from the greedy capitalists. He will eventually have enough recipients following him that he will be able to nationalize all businesses that have over 49 employees, and then redistribute the wealth to all the recipients.
Goodbye free enterprise.

Watch all these other companies that were big donors to “Dear Leader’s” campaign start exploiting the same loophole.

This isn’t too surprising, from another angle. Walmart has been steering its employees towards state-assistance for years, long before Obama was on the political horizon. I won’t shop there anymore
