Donnelly and Obamacare hurt northern Indiana workers

Northern Indiana, are you ready to feel the impact of Obamacare voted on by Joe Donnelly? Prepare to hold on to your job and your wallet. Last week, the Warsaw Times Union published an article about a massive cut to school employee hours.

The Warsaw school system will now have to reduce the hours of some employees from 36 to 29.5 hours due to the affordability of Obamacare. Warsaw has about 200 employees that this will impact.

It must be made very clear to Hoosiers, specifically northern Indiana/Kosciusko County voters, Joe Donnelly, running for U.S. Senate is a danger to our community in more ways than one. If you have seen the commercials, Joe has promoted himself as this middle of the road Democrat when in reality he is the death knell to our livelihood as we know it in Warsaw and northern Indiana. We are not fooled.

His vote for Obamacare and the medical device tax has already affected us, it threatens to turn the Orthopedic capital of the world into a grave yard, and now it is impacting our schools.

Normally, I am compelled to write about the sanctity of life and the importance of standing for the family. However the more I see of Joe Donnelly’s lies, the more I am compelled to stand up and say “enough is enough.”

Joe, your votes impact my family personally and your rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama must be exposed. You sir, are not the conservative you claim to be and you can try to run from your party, but unfortunately you have this thing called “Obamacare” stamped on your forehead that leaves us with an empty wallet and a sick stomach. I am voting for Richard Mourdock.

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
