McDonalds Rumors on Dumping Health Care

The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that due to ObamaCare, 30,000 McDonalds employees may end up losing their health care unless the fast food chain gets a government waiver.  As it turns out, McDonalds was only talking to government folks about the new regulations, not making any concrete decisions.

This all got me thinking:  why be ambiguous enough about this to let WSJ and other news sources “misinterpret” McDonalds’ memo and wait all day before clarifying it?

Maybe McDonalds will drop their health care coverage, maybe they won’t.  Maybe this whole thing is a huge misunderstanding.  Maybe McDonalds is just passively acknowledging their discontent at all the new ObamaCare regulations.  Perhaps McDonalds just doesn’t like Michelle Obamasaurus getting aggressive with her food police initiatives, or recent commercials portraying fast food as evil and deadly.

Who knows, but it is a potential way to get your dig in if you’re McDonalds, and has ObamaCare in the cross hairs once again.

Wow, is that guy a doof! Nonetheless, it’s also quite sad and frustrating because you know how he’s going to vote.
