John Obringer, the Colorado Springs Casa Adobe Apartments manager recently sent out a letter threatening a rent raise to all Obama voters. We located a copy which is focused on cutbacks of personnel and payroll deductions. “Due to the stupidity of the U.S. electorate, the Obama-administration’s continued assault on small business is resulting in increased taxes, regulations and mandates that are forcing the management company (B&J Enterprises, Inc.) for Casa Adobe Apartments to modify its operation to survive. This has resulted in layoffs, work-time reductions and decreased pay for workers.”
Continuing: “Consequently, the business hours are now Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Please plan accordingly … We are working hard to maintain the field, cleaning and maintenance personnel in place without raising rents, but that too is inevitable due to the upcoming inflation and market forces. … BTW: If you voted “Democrat” on Nov. 6, please notify me ASAP so I can raise your rent first to help pay for what you asked for.”
The fixation is on the 2%, that sector which Obama claims not only owes it’s fair share but can effortlessly spare a dime. The fact is that 50% of our country pays no federal taxes. All of this talk of depriving the middle class of their tax cuts, nobody, yes that’s nobody, is in line for a tax cut. Obama and the lib socialists are offering nothing more than to extend the Bush tax rates. In the end, ObamaCare mandates, surtaxes… will increase everyone’s taxes regardless of whether the Bush rates are simply left alone.
Who is John Obringer to ask Obama voters to pay more for their rent as opposed to Obama requiring the 2% to pay more for their success?
