Utah business owner fires two who backed Obama [View all]

Source: Sltrib.com

First, the owner of a smoothie bar in Vernal is charging liberals more for a cup of juice. Now, a Cedar City business owner who let two workers go because of Obamacare costs said he picked the pair in large part because of their support for President Obama. Terry Lee, owner of Terry Lee Forensics, showed his support for the Vernal smoothie barís practice of trying to recoup the costs it says are incurred because of liberal policies by posting in the comments section of a story about it in Thursdayís Salt Lake Tribune.

"Love it. We had to let two employees go to cover new Obongocare (sic) costs and increased taxes," Lee wrote. "Found two Obongo supporters and gave them the news yesterday. They wanted the idiot in the Whitehouse (sic), they reap the benefits."

Contacted by The Tribune Thursday, Lee said he picked the two employees in large part on the basis of their politics. "They were Obama supporters. We just knew they were," Lee said. "I implied that sort of tongue and cheek (in the comments section) but there were other issues, too. They were not top performers."

"Is your political affiliation protected?" he added, explaining that he thought what he did was not illegal. "I donít believe it is, but I donít know."
