It saves people money because since they are forced from full-time to part-time, they pay less in taxes. Or maybe they lose their job altogether so they get free government handouts. I think that's Obama's train of thought.

Except nearly all studies show it increases costs for the average American, the opposite of what Barack promises

I know employers who are cutting hours to below 30. Now a "Full time" employee, will need to work 50-60 hours at two different jobs to make ends meet. Except that they can't find that second job. That saves somebody money... Any new average wage figures out lately?

Worst administration and congress in the history of these united states. Probably the worst 3 administrations(presidents) in the history of the US. The economy could have been fixed without the taxpayer bailing out and supporting failure. And US gov't should get out of the loan business all together. Congress doesn't have the first clue about risk management.

Well there's a lot of politics in the debate over health care. Fact is, Republicans are scared to death that Obamacare might more or less work. THAT poses an additional risk on top of the many other risks the GOP is taking. So Republicans want to derail Oabmacare before it has a chance to work regardless of the harm inflicted on people without current coverage.

Oh, to liv in a make-believe world. Isn't it time for the President to quit campaigning and to start being the boss and actually running the government and doing his job?

What Savings???? Unless you have your head in the sand, premiums are increasing faster than before Obamacare was passes. I guess if you keep telling yourself a lie for long enough, eventually you will believe it.

Meanwhile, while New York residents get a break, how does the rest of the nation fare?

Current Congressional Budget Office estimates (May 2013) indicate that Obamacare with cost $1.76 trillion over the next 10 years.

So much for all the hype about Obamacare reducing healthcare costs.
