Elections have consequences. Based on Tuesday’s vote, apparently much of the Left doesn’t understand this simple concept. Unfortunately, the school of hard knocks will teach them and many other Americans this principle the hard way.

And here’s another lesson: taxes, stifling regulation and Obama-care will force business to layoff workers.

Sure enough, on Wednesday, a Las Vegas business owner with 114 employees issued 22 pink slips. That’s about 20% of his workforce. Why? During a radio interview the business owner, David (he wished to remain anonymous) stated, ”

I explained to them (his employees) a month ago that if Obama gets in office that the regulations for Obama-care are gonna hurt our business, and I’m gonna have to make provisions to make sure I have enough money to cover the payroll taxes, the additional health care I’m gonna have to do…

He continued,

…we know what happened and I can’t wait around anymore, I have to be proactive. I had to lay off 22 people today to make sure that my business is gonna thrive and I’m gonna be around for years to come. I have to build up that nest egg now for the taxes and regulations that are coming my way.

Rest assured there will be plenty more of these types of stories. Guaranteed.
