More legislative mandates on business. How are we to function and earn a profit? You have to be able to rely on the goodness and common sense of the employer. If not then folks will either work around the law i.e lay some folks off, cut some back to part time. But the bigger boys will simply look at this as another reason to consider a move. The bigger the company the potential for greater cost here.
When will the GA learn? Hopefully the Governor vetoes this legislation.

Enough already of this over-reaching, intrusive, socialist, elitist, nanny state, do-gooder government run by a bunch of clueless idiots that don't have the first clue what their jobs are or how to do other than to intrude in our lives and tell us how we need to lead our lives and run our businesses. Why don't these assclowns clean up their own houses first, stop taking the "payoff" campaign contributions, stop the pandering, stop the other nonsense and start by paying their taxes, ALL OF THEM!
When is enough going to be enough with these imbeciles?

More Government intervention. I thought the SWINE flu was not a problem, I mean the politically correct H1N1 flu. Redistribution of wealth is here, destroy capitalism, Acorn taught Obama, Tax the rich, put as many as we can on Govt assistance. the Country will be bankrupt by the end of the year, Dollar is crashing because of all this Govt waste and spending. We are playing right into the hands of Commrade Obama.

What did anybody expect when they voted for a shady, bi racial, multi national, community organizing lawyer with no track record of any meaningful achievement and no legitimate birth certificate?
I don't understand how anybody could be sucked in by this elitist, socialist snake oil selling, smooth talking huckster.
So far all he's done is hire other like minded corrupt, clueless imbeciles and make everything worse plus spend every nickel the government had and then some. If I were more cynical I'd think he's a traitor and out to destroy this country from the inside. The guy is an assshole.
Hope he enjoyed his "date night" on our dime. What will we be paying for next to entertain him and this ugly gorilla he sleeps with? We've already paid for his favorite pizza chef to be flown to him from St. Louis and his imported Japanese beef. He's a friggin' public servant, not entitled royalty! What nerve. But then again with his incredible arrogance I'm not surprised.
At this point I'll vote for anybody in 2012 so long as it's not him. Hope his supporters are proud of this disgrace in an empty suit.
