    Sure, because that Rush Limbaugh thing didn't cost a few radio companies millions in losses this past year.

    And counting.

    Alot of companies have survived over the years but they are not going to make it through the Obama administration, that is sad and does not sound like a recovering economy at all. I would like to see government stay out of health care and let free enterprise take care of how businesses survive. A good business that treats it's customers and employees right along with giving the consumer a good product should and will succeed in a free enterprise market. A successful business will offer affordable healthcare to there workers. Nothing should be forced, especialy in this country that is supposed to be land of the free.

    Used to work for Papa John's. This has nothing to do with politics: Papa John's was a **** employer to work for. I left them after about a year for Domino's, where I would work for over four years while I went to college. Domino's actually took care of their employees, had more than enough hours for the drivers, and I actually made more money.

    Other companies are already starting to layoff workers and cut hours. Companies will also offer the cheapest healthcare they can find. Wait until everyones taxes are raised, not just the rich.

    Actually, you're wrong: three days ago, Dial Global requested that they be delisted from the Nasdaq. Their explanation of their multimillion dollar loss in their 10-Q filing follows:

    "Based on our current financial projections, absent additional debt or equity capital from third parties, we anticipate that we will breach our debt leverage and interest coverage covenants for the quarters ended DECEMBER 31st, 2012 and beyond. Such expected non-compliance is a result of several factors. We believe our 2012 results were adversely impacted by, among other things, late cancellations in ad buys (which we believe was a by-product of the election and renewed economic uncertainty), competitive factors, such as a greater diversity of digital ad platforms (into which ad budgets have flowed) and increased competition from our major competitors, and advertisers' response to controversial statements by a certain nationally syndicated talk radio personality in MARCH 2012."

    Cumulus has made similar claims.

    Now. You're welcome to make an attempt to rebut my facts, but name-calling and spurious claims serve only to prove your ignorance and inability to back up your position.

    John Schnatter is pulling a political stunt and nothing more. He's more concerned about adding another 18 hole golf course or landing strip on his property than providing his employee's with decent healthcare benefits. He held a fundraiser for Romney, so I'm sure this is his way of thumping his nose at the Democrats. (at the expense of this employees.)
    No doubt the majority of his employees are part-timers that would not qualify for HC benefits in the first place. This guy's a self-serving ASS and I would NEVER buy one of his crummy pizza's.

    So you think working 16 hrs a day will get you that.... HaaaHaaHaa. Being rich was never my goal in life. I'm do quit well thank you. My point is this man has exploited his employees for his own selfish gain. Its a moral and ethical issue for me. I'm standing with the millions of Americans that do work 16 or more hrs a day and still can not feed their families, properly house their families. get proper medical attention and can eventually retire with dignity. I will NEVER justify in my mind the exploitation of another human being.

    Correction: The Democrat controlled Congress during the last Administration created this mess and that very same Congress dug us even deeper into oblivion during the first two years of the Odumbass term. The President is not the be-all-end-all in the Government, in other words, not king. He can accept or veto legislation. O likes to use Executive Order which he abuses mercilessly to override the will of the people. If Bush's ideas were so bad, why didn't the Dem Congress stop him? He should have used his veto power more which was his biggest mistake, but unlike O, he actually tried to work with the other side and look what that got him. All the blame from cretins like you. You people are ridiculous. You cry and whine that the Republican House keeps stopping Obumbler, while he just overrides everything, then you simultaneously blame Bush for everything pretending that the Dem Congress had nothing to do with it. You can't have it both ways. It's either the Congress or the President or a combination but it can't be different in each situation to suit your bias. Can't your Messiah overcome the things that "stupid" Bush did? ROFL!! I thought he was going to turn everything around in three years, what happened??

I would hate to have to worship a moron that I have to keep making excuses for. Furthermore, why do you idiots think that all of us Conservatives thought Bush was so great? He was okay, but I know a lot of us would have liked someone different. Most Conservatives I know don't like or agree with everything he did, but at least he wasn't trying to have Government completely take over our lives and livelihoods, spiraling into a Progressive dis-topian hell. That's okay though, keep slurping up that spooge, before you know it we as a country will collapse and even though we will all be miserable, at least we Conservatives will have something to laugh at while you Progs stand there with your hands out for entitlements that will not come.
    Oh, and by the way, how do you know it would have been worse without Odummy? Did you consult your Magic 8 Ball?? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

    Great answer and so true. Thank you very much Sweet N. You know how Obama brags so much, about killing Bin Laden, well he fails to report the downside of it. Obama has killed thousands of innocent bystanders, including children. That is their dirty little secret that needs to be exposed, please spread this video, so more of the crazy liberals will see that side of Obama, that has been hidden, so meticulously. Dennis Kucinich.... a well know liberal Democrat is going after Obama and is to be commended! http://www.dailypaul.com/2633...

    They had two years to fix the previous eight years and the country was in NO way capable of fixing anything with the Republican obstructionism. It take six to eight years to recover from a normal recession and that in the good times. This economic disaster was the worst since the Great Depression. I'm tired of hearing that lame excuse.

    The Democrats had a virtual lock on both the House and Senate the first two years of Obama's 1st term. They chose to do nothing about the economy. Instead they focused on green energy, "health care reform", taking over GM & Chrysler and creating mountains of regulations. How exactly did that help the economy? In fact most recessions are far better after two years than we are four years out now, precisely because of Obama's complete lack of economic understanding. Same thing with the Great Depression. If not for FDR's socialist meddling, we would have been out of it far sooner.
