    I worked at that hardware store 27 years ago.  Only management was eligible for benefits...somehow I doubt that's changed since.

      if not all of it. Still, if CEO's want to "blame" Obama falsely, I say hit them with all we've got, which is our buying power. I don't believe any of these companies are actually struggling due to the Health Care policy. From what I've read, it doesn't even work that way. They're just lying and casting blame. And in the case of your former employer, what a Republican whacko the store owner sounds like if she doesn't give most of her employees benefits! She's just coming out lying, you know?

      Pathetic. I don't want to go to stores that leverage this stuff falsely to try and play "blame Obama." There's a reason why this stuff is being pushed happily by FreedomWorks.
