Are you a 49er, employed by a company whose health insurance costs will skyrocket if the boss hires 50 or more people?

Or a 29er, who, for the same reason, cannot be given 30 or more hours a week?

Why would President Barack Obama's health care law deliberately make it harder for companies to hire more people? How can the economy possibly recover? Answer: It can't, as long as Democrats control the White House and Congress.

A welfare state with part-time jobs and dependence on government handouts is Obama's vision.

The December jobs report confirms that 92 million able-bodied Americans who want to work have given up looking and will need the government to support them. All of this thanks to Barack Obama's policies.

Electing conservatives is the only way to restore America's prosperity.
