Now businesses will have to go hat in hand to Obama to explain themselves about why they are firing any particular employee. This is just another of Obama’s steps toward the fascist-styled control by Washington bureaucrats over the entirety of the business sector.
As Fox News reported it: “Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so.”
Here is what friend and candidate for Congress Dan Bongino said of all this…
Thanks to Obamacare, business owners will now be forced to document to the IRS why they are releasing employees under penalty of perjury.
This new regulation is intended to prevent business owners from downsizing to avoid the heavy fines associated with new Obamacare regulations.
Had enough yet? First Obamacare orders you to pay for benefits you may or may not be able to afford. If you can’t afford to, and must release employees, then you must report to the enforcers at the IRS and pay the piper.
Welcome to the new America.
