John Mazur of Waxhaw, North Carolina, is a father of two and small business owner who decided to give his Halloween decorations a spooky Obamacare twist this year. Grave markers in his yard mourn the death of American health care and the U.S. economy. Screen shots courtesy of WCNC, the Charlotte NBC affiliate that reported on the decorations.

Offensive? Oh, come on.

NBC Charlotte has video of the decorations and an interview with Mazur who said, “Everything hit the fan on October first…. [My employees’] health plan goes up 37% this year.”
