Velma Hart spoke up a few months ago and confessed that she was exhausted with Barack Obama. Remember that nice, intelligent woman who asked Barack Obama if she had hot dogs and beans in her future? Well, the shoe has dropped. She has lost her damn job!
Nobody is safe.
Velma Hart, who burst onto the media scene after telling President Obama she was scared about her financial future, has been laid off. Hart was let go as the chief financial officer for Am Vets, a nonprofit Maryland-based veteran services organization.
Hart has become another casualty of the tough economy in which so many people have lost their jobs.
“It’s not anything she did,” said Jim King, the national executive director of Am Vets. “She got bit by the same snake that has bit a lot of people. It was a move to cut our bottom line. Most not-for-profits are seeing their money pinched.”
Remember, this woman lives in the Washington, DC area. This area has been relatively insulated from the economic problems facing America because there are so many government workers. All I can suggest is pray for Velma and her family. This is a tough day for them.
