Barack Obama, our next President

Obamacare Call Center Will Not Offer Health-Care Benefits to Employees

By Eliana Johnson

July 26, 2013 6:27 PM

In order to ensure Americans understand how to access the benefits available to them when many provisions of the Affordable Care Act go online October 1, the Obama administration announced last month that it is setting up a call center that will be accessible to Americans 24 hours a day.

One branch of that call center will be located in California’s Contra Costa County, where, reportedly, 7,000 people applied for the 204 jobs. According to the Contra Costa Times, however,“about half the jobs are part-time, with no health benefits — a stinging disappointment to workers and local politicians who believed the positions would be full-time.” The county supervisor, Karen Mitchoff, called the hiring process “a comedy of errors” and said she “never dreamed [the jobs] would be part-time.”

The Times indicates that a job posting advertised all of the jobs as full-time, and one call center employee, who said no reason for the apparent change was provided, told the paper,”It reminded me of that George Clooney movie where he goes around the country firing people [Up in the Air]. The woman said,‘I know you were led to believe you would be full-time, but things have changed.... You are actually ‘part-time intermittent.’”

The Contra Costa employees are currently in training, and the call center — one of three based in California — is set to go live on October 1.

Yeah, like Carol or whatever her name is today.

So, did you say you were a Democrat? Why would you say that I am a pseudo liberal Democrat? I am a liberal Democrat, proudly so.

<quoted text>Personally I dont care for any of them that you mentioned but their actions tell alot about their true characters which is not good but during Clinton Sleeze was in which I never voted for him and the one that set the financial crisis in motion on his watch or should I say not on Clinton's watch since preoccupied with Extracurricular activity with Monica Lewinksky and who knows who else and not focused on what was importmant to Country instead which is the Typical behavior of a Modern Pseudo Liberal Democrat.
A healthy ego is essential to anyone engaged in public life. That ego protects and feeds the individual's self-worth without which they could not function effectively. It supplies oxygen to those who inhabit thin-air environments.

But when job function is superseded by the need to feed a hungry ego first and foremost, then we have problems where politicians are celebrities first, public servants second and human beings last.

This problem is seen with the Clintons, The Magic Negros, the Weiners, Spitzers and that flake in San Diego.

And Hillary is too fkn old dummy, have you already forgotten the fuss about Ronnie's age.

Being POTUS requires energy, lot's of it, I watched Newt nearly fall asleep while speaking to a group in my area.

IMO Christie has a little over a year to get down to a 42-44 waist or the rigors of campaigning will kill him.

The first and some say best test of a POTUS is getting elected.

I like Obamacare. I look forward to the exchanges. Both as a family & also as an employer. You see, I am not a Cheapass employer who did not offer good healthcare benefits. You know, the type of employers you right whiners support. Yep you support employers that offer no healthcare benefits buy I F*ckig guarantee you have healthcare benefits at your place of employment or demand healthcare benefits when you look for work.
This is the hypocrisy of you & your right whiner buddies posting here.
"OMG OMG companies have to offer heath care OMG OMG"
You are the rat on the sinking ship who brags about his digs.

Sooner or later, you WILL have to jump, Dood.

You really aren't too swift. Obama did not change the program. The last change was done by your heroes Bush & the Republicans.
Didn't someone on the SCOTUS say that Obamacare is a tax?

Ode To A Democrat:

Would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
And be better off than you are?
Or would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long, funny ears
He kicks up at anything he hears
His back is brawny and his brain is weak
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
And, by the way, if you hate to go to school
You may grow up to be a mule
