"Obamacare" Allegedly Provoked Amber Gardner to Attack a Woman and Destroy a Deli With a Stone Hammer

Amber Gardner probably didn't do so well in high school government class.
People around the country reacted differently to last week's Supreme Court decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare."

Amber Leah Gardner sure had a unique reaction.

Gardner's apparent response was to go to a Mesa deli with a stone hammer, rant about Obama and shout some "racial remarks" at the employees, then allegedly attempt to hit one of the employees with the hammer before proceeding to wreck the deli with that hammer.

Yeah...'Merica.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, Gardner -- a 32-year-old resident of Spring Hill, Florida (north of Tampa) -- walked into the Mesa Food and Deli store with her hammer on Friday and began a-yellin'.

"This is the United States of America!" Gardner said, according to the documents. "Obama passed a law yesterday."

Gardner may not have a real solid grasp of how the government operates, as the President didn't quite pass a law the day before Gardner's episode, but the the Supreme Court did uphold the law dubbed "Obamacare."

After Gardner "continued to make racial remarks [toward] store employees," she showed off her stone hammer, the documents say.

Gardner attempted to hit a female employee with the hammer, according to the documents, but another employee was able to prevent it from happening.

A third employee heard all the commotion going on, and helped everyone get out of the store and away from Gardner.

While the cops were informed of what was going on, Gardner "proceeded to tear apart the front of the store," the documents state, causing several thousand dollars worth of damage to the store and the products.

According to the documents, Gardner was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time.

Gardner faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage.

Her bond was set at $9,000.

Obamacare does not cover deli food. But head trauma by hammer is covered.

I wonder if drugs in her system is covered? or mental health because either she is on drugs OR has serious mental problems?

 Ha!  lol!   If my figures are anywhere close, it's yourself and perhaps two buddies which still have any faith in the scumbag.

John, actually embarrassing as it may be, but Obama will win in a landslide. And people like you will have to suffer for 4 more years.
