When will this crap stop? I guess when he is finally out of office and that can’t come any too soon. The beat goes on……the unions are pissed as they want the employer to pick up the costs of Obamacare. This should come as no surprise to anyone. Politicians and bureaucrats never consider second, third and forth order effects. His idea of CHANGE is to bankrupt this country and he’s doing
it while we all sit idle. Please wake up AMERICA and get the word out.
Please forward – all active military and veterans should be aware of what’s going on at our military installations. VOTE this idiot and his kind out of office
This has been checked this out on “truthorfiction.com” and it is true.
I did not think even Obama would stoop this low.
The Burger King national headquarters announced this month that they will be Pulling their franchises from our military bases. Soon to follow will be
Popeye’s Chicken, Pizza franchises and the chain of barber and beauty shops Which operates inside the gates of our military facilities. Reason?
Obama’s mandate that all companies who do business with the federal Government pay a $10.10 per hour minimum wage.
The companies cite the fact that a limited military customer base cannot sustain Acceptable profit margins while still offering up a hefty share of profits to
The Army and Air Force Exchange System’s Health and Morale fund and paying $10.10 an hour as Obama has directed for any contractor doing business with The DOD. For those who don’t know, hundreds of commercial franchises Have operated on military bases for years. This partnership has been a Boon to the non-profit AAFES system. All profits go toward programs such As organized athletic programs for the military and their dependents, exercise Equipment, support for social clubs and the like.
Coming at a time of tighter defense budgets the withdrawal of commercial franchises Is going to put quite a squeeze on the military health and morale programs. Every time a military grunt got a haircut, every time a military wife Got a manicure or hair styling, with every burger or slice of pizza or chicken
Dinner sold, a portion of the profits went to this much needed Program.
Alas, as with all things Obama, every time he does something to please his socialist Friends, someone suffers. In this case it will be our military.
While this will be a serious loss for our stateside troops, the troops who Will be most hurt by this are our troops deployed to remote areas of the world
Where our military folks had little to look forward to but a Burger King Whopper and fries at a small concession that might bring them a little bit of Home to their lives.
This should not surprise me at all but it does.
I should have been prepared For this when Obama eliminated
hot meals for our troops in Afghanistan even as He and Joe Biden
were booking $500,000 per night hotel suites in Paris and London….
or Obama’s total disregard for costs as he and Michelle have run up
Over $600 million dollars in vacation costs during his tenure. Oh well,
I understand the military’s food research facility up in Illinois is
Working on “Pizza in a Pouch” for the new cold ration packs.
“Screw the Grunts” seems to be Obama’s philosophy…even as he and Michelle
host Jay Z And Beyonce at one of those fancy White House dinners.
