Another Associated Press story, pushing the regime propaganda talking points.If you thought health care was expensive and hard to get before, just
wait until Obamacare is fully implemented.This monstrosity must be
repealed, every last word of it, to undo the damage.
Speaking from California, one of the most prepared states , at the moment:1. The California pool has been set up. There are hints/ innuendoes that a
bribe (whoops - administrative "fee"), had to be paid by the companies
that choose to play.2. I am retired, and have medicare-coordinated
coverage access provided by my previous employer. My employer stopped paying
towards it years ago. My employer is now considering dumping us retirees to the
"pool" because of some kind of per-capita "fee". Apparently,
the attorneys/ bureaucrats are struggling over the issue of wether or not they
are providing coverage, over the technical issue of the definition of " who
provides" (the payment is 100% mine).3. I've looked at the
pool, as recently released. My insurance carrier is there. The only plan that
is cheaper has such high deductibles and copays as to be a near- useless joke.
The other levels are all more expensive and have significantly higher copays. Affordable Health Care Act? Yea, right!
No, Obamacare will be judged by the number of jobs it kills, or how many
full-time workers it pushes to part time.Of course, the BO
misadministration will never let numbers like that actually be measured.
That's ridiculous DC. First of all the "full time workers" who are
being moved to "part time" are full time workers who didn't have
health insurance in the first place. Secondly full time to part time is a one
to two hour move, even if it happens. Secondly the demand for products and
services will dictate the number of workers, full time and part time not the
ACA. It always has and always will. The ACA will virtually do nothing to alter
that over time.
Well it looks like 0-3 for Barack on this one. Premiums are WAY up, choice is
down with many corporations dropping their employee health care benefits and
then comes the part of having to deal with the enforcer of Obamacare ....the
IRS. I don't think we need elaborate on this one any further. The bottom
line here is predictably nothing that Barack promised came true - in fact quite
the opposite. This bill is ...as one senate democrat put it ... a "train
re:pragmatistferlifeAlpine School District wrote a letter to ALL of
their FULL TIME aids (40 hours per week) and informed them that due to Obamacare
their hours would be cut to 27.5. I have no idea what you are talking about and
I suspect neither do you...but nice try anyway. This full time to part time cut
IS substantial (40 hours to 27.5 hours). I suspect if your boss at work informed
you that you would be getting a nearly 40% cut in pay you would most likely not
be too happy... correct? Of course I am assuming here you are actually a worker
rather than a traditional Obama supporter which just collects Obama-bucks every
If its such a great deal that Obama named it after himself.....why postpone it?
Shouldn't we be excited to once again have Obamacare? I'll tell you why? It's because Obama lied and it is a horrible
bill and no one can afford it!......that's why only 47 % of USA have
full-time work. WE NEED A conservative party senate to roll back
this disaster and gives us freedom and opportunity back!
pragmatist,would you rather be a full time employee without
company-provided health insurance, or a part time employee with bare bones
Obamacare? The former can feed their families, the latter cannot;
but they'll be able to wait in line for Obamacare!
Barack Hussein Obama wasted his first two years on this "signature"
achievement called The Affordable (what a joke) Health Care Act aka Obama Care.
His "signature" achievement is now literally becoming a massive train
wreck and complete disaster. Obama will go down in history as being the absolute
worst president this country has ever had. Mark it down. He is already a failed
Patriot, I'll bet the full time aids weren't eligible for health care
in the first place. So my logic holds. What is happening is workers who
weren't eligible for health care are still not eligible for health care.
It's just that in the majority of places anyone who worked over 30 hours
was considered full time and eligible for benefits. Can you find a few morally
bankrupt employers who just plain didn't offer health care sure. Your
snarky "I don't know what you're talking about and I doubt neither
do you" is very misplaced. I spent many decades at the senior management
Human Resource level of some of America's largest and wealthiest
corporations, so I do know what I'm talking about. What happens in Alpine
Utah is not representative of the country.Lost..if the difference in
hours is one, which will be the case for most full timers being moved to part
time I'll take part time with health care.
pragmatist,no, 40 minus 29 is NOT 1, it is 11.I wonder why
liberals have such a problem with math!?
I suspect their are plenty of "Bosses" in Utah that will use this
politically, but hey, Utah got it Wrong again, when they voted for Mitt. So I
would expect plenty of whining in this state, My boss keeps complaining about
the economy and it all Obama, (of course he religiously listens to am hate
radio) The trouble is, I see how much more work we have, how much we've
grown in the last 5 years, and continue to buy new equipment and hire to meet
demand, you know the way a business works, while being told how tough it is to
get by in this economy.The lack of respect for employees by the
elite in this country is sickening, and will cause us to fall long before
universal healthcare will.
