Romney offers recipe for job growth: Repeal Obamacare

Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)Barack ObamaMitt RomneyRepublican Party

My father has worked at the same furniture manufacturing company for over 30 years. He has worked his way up from an entry level position to the senior director of manufacturing. The company has grown and shrunk many times along the way. As projects were secured, they had the flexibility to hire up to 100 people to get the job done. This is how a business should work, right?

Well, this is no longer an option. Currently, his company employs 55 people. Under the regulations of Obamacare effective in January, a heavy fine will have to be paid by companies with over 50 employees that do not provide health insurance. Today, he was told by the owner that he must find five people by December to fire in order for the company to survive.

Five people will be out of work next year because of President Barack Obama's terrible policies. No longer can this business take large projects that require extra staff because of the over-regulation by the federal government. They now cannot grow because it is economically disadvantageous to grow. We are in a deep recession, and growth is what we need to invigorate our economy. All around America, businesses growth is being stunted because of President Obama and his anti-business agenda. Obamacare kills jobs; there is no question about it!

Electing Mitt Romney is the best chance we have stop this senseless war on growth. We can't take four more years of anti-business policies. It's time for a change.
