What The Job Creators Whisper

I hear something every time a business owner cuts someone’s hours or lays people off to avoid Obamacare. It’s a dark whisper, quiet, often overruled by the sound of patriotic trumpets and waving flags.

It’s barely audible. But if you listen closely, you can hear it too.

This is what I hear when “job creators” hurt workers “because of Obamacare”:

I don’t want to pay you enough for you to afford healthcare.

You are not a person. You are a cog. You are replaceable enough that if you get sick, I’d rather replace you than help you.

If I can figure out a way to pay you less to make more cash for myself, I’d do it in a heartbeat.

I’m going to blame Obama so you still support me and my politician friends in the next election.

And I think you’re too stupid to figure that out.

I hear them whisper that behind their loud, loud words.

And I wonder when we will whisper back.
