Video: Georgia Company Refuses to Hire Until "Obama is Gone"

| by Michael Allen

Bill Looman, who owns U.S. Cranes, LLC in Waco, Georgia, has put up signs on his Facebook page and company trucks that proclaim, "New Company Policy: We Are Not Hiring Until Obama Is Gone."

Looman told 11Alive (video below): "I've got people that I want to hire now, but I just can't afford it. And I don't foresee that I'll be able to afford it unless some things change in D.C."

"The way the economy's running, and the way my business has been hampered by the economy, and the policies of the people in power, I felt that it was necessary to voice my opinion, and predict that I wouldn't be able to do any hiring," Looman said.

Looman didn't mention any actual policies of the Obama administration that were hampering him from hiring. His Facebook page also features pro-confederate and anti-Musim posts.

Ironically, President Obama has proposed giving major tax credits to businesses that hire new workers, including a $4,000 credit for hiring the long-term unemployed. Just this week, Obama signed a law to give additional tax credits to businesses that hire veterans.

Looman did receive a visit from some Secret Service agents, who interviewed him.
