Plan B Prevails

Lovitz: ‘I can’t wait to go to a hospital run by the DMV!’; Friends planning layoffs

http://twitter.com/#!/realjonlovitz/status/266224747317194752

Post-election snark from comedian Jon Lovitz? Unlike the Nobel Prize, President Obama did earn that.

The disgruntled Dem and frequent Obama critic isn’t looking “Forward!” to dangerously long waits for medical care. And like many Americans, Lovitz is concerned about the devastating impact of Obamacare on business owners and their employees.

Friends who own businesses saythey’re figuring out how many people they have to lay off. They can’t afford health care & stay open.

Stock market down 431 points.I know of 3 companies, so far, who are laying off employees due to excessive health care costs.Forward.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

As many heartbroken small business owners noted on Twitter, Obama’s reelection means they’re already being forced to lay off dedicated employees. Others shared their personal stories with Lovitz.

@realjonlovitz Several small businesses here were waiting for outcome of election. Now say they’ll close. 30% of town boarded up already.

@realjonlovitz My husband was informed by his company that our health insurance premium will DOUBLE in 2014, layoffs to come.

@realjonlovitz that is the sad truth Jon. My company has been on salary freeze since the Obamacare was passed. #whathappened

President Obama, you built that. Heckuva job, Barry!

Lovitz also took the time to respond to some of his Twitter critics.

@75orless Yes they did. Moron.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 7, 2012

@animotek Anyone can go to the emergency room to be treated. And you won’t wait in a line to see a doctor.You wait for weeks!!

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 7, 2012

“@piker62: @ the hospitals will continue to be run by insurance companies. Feel better?”No. Insurance companies aren’t doctors.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 7, 2012

@a1ela Some people grow up and take care of themselves.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 7, 2012

Jon Lovitz advocates personal responsibility, calls out the dangers of Obamacare and reads Twitchy?

Welcome to conservative fold, Mr. Lovitz! We’re thrilled to have another happy warrior among us.

Update:

Lovitz continued engaging fans and critics and slaying trolls on Twitter this afternoon.

@dflamontI know of a Canadian woman w/ cancer who had to wait 5 weeks for a biopsy. She didn’t wait & went to the USA, or she’d be dead.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dflamont Name one US citizen who flies to Canada for health care.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@ivorymarkus What’s an idoit?

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

“@heathellenberg:for fucks sake Lovitz it’s over. Obama won, sorry your rich friends lost.”It’s over, alright. Have fun on unemployment.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@inkedrunningman No thanks. I’ll leave the bag for you.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dinosaurproj Well.. I have 54,000 followers.You have 39.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@t1m07hy That’s true , dumb fuck.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@joeydrama23 No… I have a job. Hope you don’t lose yours.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

“@redmus3647: @realjonlovitz The companies told people they were going to do it”Bingo! And they’re doing it. It’s going to be bad.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dflamont Well, that’s sad. But you proved my point. He went to the USA for treatment.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@glenntrieff No. It went down 300 points the day after Obama won because of Greece. You’re right.. Not.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dflamont Glad he lived. It’s still better here.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@joeyjosephus @heathellenberg I have plenty of work because I’m self employed.I’m not mad, I’m stating facts. They’re cutting employees.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

Facts are hard for some. Pesky truth!

@decofoxx Yep! And if they don’t get it, they get fined.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dflamont I believe you. But not for doctors.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dinosaurproj You were kinda funny never. And you’re wrong.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@quitterbug Yesterday, down 300.Today, 131.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dflamont You have one tenth the amount of people in Canada as the US. And you don’t have to pay for any employees medical insurance.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@palmer4cy My friends who own businesses told me personally they can’t afford the health care costs. Not Fox news.Ask around.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

But FAUX NEWZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!!111!

@stiffestcliff See, Twitchy???Tell people the truth and they accuse you of lying.My friends tell me this in confidence.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

See Twitchy? We fully endorse that advice.

@davidvineyard9 Just ask people you know who have 24 employees or more . They’re cutting them to part time or firing them.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@kathleenf6500 No. They’re my friends businesses. It’s not my place to name them. Now say I’m lying. It’s happening all over the country.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@dflamont @sherrysaysso People need insurance, yes.This plan is going to cost jobs.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

@philip711 Both!!!!

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 8, 2012

Lovitz has been a frequent target of the Left’s sweet and loving “tolerance” since he dared to commit the unforgiveable sin of criticizing Obama. In July, he called out liberals’ despicable race card-playing.

@crackersbob @redmus3647 Well.. You’re a real businessman. But people don’t want facts . They want ideology.

Update:

Lovitz is on a roll:

@sresnick9 I guess not lying makes me right wing. Thanks for Proving my point.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 9, 2012

@grendeltech Yes. But I was never against anybody and never far left. Obama said one thi g and did another.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 9, 2012

@imakemedia I know. And that’s what they want to doin the US. Some of the newhealth care is good and fair. Other parts will cost jobs.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 9, 2012

@sresnick9 Apparently, when I started disagreeing with you.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 9, 2012

Aw, snap.

@pueblo66 Or itcould be with 100 employees, it costs them an extra $30,000 a month. And it could be, you don’t own your own business.

— Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) November 9, 2012

@garethgagzi I’m not a Republican. I’m just stating facts.

Facts are hard for the Left.

Unfortunately, stories like that are bound to become all too common in the coming months. The truth may be hard to swallow for the Left, but we appreciate Mr. Lovitz’s dedication to putting it out there for all to see.
