Obamacare Costs One Indiana School District $6 Million

But they opt to cut school workers' hours instead.
10:53 AM, Oct 25, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER


Obamacare is costing one Indiana school district $6 million, WTHI reports:

"In the past, we've told you about the new federal healthcare law and how small business and local governments have been hit," said the anchor. "The next area affected by the law could be education."

The reporter adds, "The affordable care act has had its proponents as much as it's had its opponents. In the last few months we've heard different stories from private and government employers on the cuts, they've had to make. However, in Vigo county some of those cuts will come at the cost of education."

"So what we had to do the other evening at the board meeting was to cut worker's hours to below 30 because we cannot afford to offer health care to every employee," says the superintendent

It would cost $6 million a year to provide health care to every employee who works more than 30 hours, says the superintendent.

How Healthcare.gov Can Become Exactly Like The Iraq War In 12 Easy Steps

So, how can this objectively false equivalence achieve, over time, a little more truthiness? For Healthcare.gov to become more like the Iraq War, here are the 12 things that will have to happen as the efforts to fix Healthcare.gov proceed.

In short order, the Healthcare.gov website will pull down a statue of "millions of Americans cannot afford basic health care coverage." It will be initially reported as something of an emotional turning point, but later it will come to light that it was all blown out of proportion.

Sometime next week, and in spite of the fact that the hard work of fixing the website has only just begun, a "Mission Accomplished" banner will be affixed to the Department of Health and Human Services. The president will stand in front of HHS, extolling the work that hasn't been completed.

Somehow, the ongoing work on Healthcare.gov will result in the Smithsonian being looted of hundreds of priceless antiquities.

Referring to federal IT contractors and phone-bound customer service professionals, Kathleen Sebelius says, "As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. They’re not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time."

Approximately $12 billion, shrink-wrapped and shipped to Healthcare.gov on pallets, will just up and disappear for no good reason.

Healthcare.gov will be referred to by President Barack Obama as a "catastrophic success."

Photos will be released depicting, among other things, a group of naked and humiliated contractors from website creator, CGI Federal, stacked atop one another in a pyramid.

Obama will bring an inedible turkey to Heathcare.gov for Thanksgiving.

Eventually, the problem that precipitated the need for the Affordable Care Act in the first place -- the fact that millions of Americans cannot afford basic health care coverage -- will be discovered, hiding in a spider hole in a remote location. "Millions of Americans cannot afford basic health care coverage" will be subsequently deloused, imprisoned, tried, and eventually hanged by masked goons, who chant "Muqtada," for what I am sure is some perfectly rational reason that you probably shouldn't worry about.

Finally, after a long, hard slog, a nominally functioning Healthcare.gov website will come online, and by all appearances work reasonably well. The one weird thing is that Healthcare.gov will be more closely tied, and sympathetic to, the Iranian regime than anyone expected.

In a final analysis, repairing the glitches in the Healthcare.gov website will be found to have caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands.

Eventually, the GOP presidential contender most closely associated with opposing the Affordable Care Act -- Ted Cruz, I guess -- will become the Republican nominee and get swept into office on Election Night. That's when Obama will suffer "Bush's fate." I guess that means neither the president or anyone in his administration or party will ever be held accountable for any of this, and the president himself will retire and become a wealthy celebrity who paints dogs and wants for nothing. When you think about it, that's a good reason to hope that Healthcare.gov becomes exactly like the Iraq War. I mean, I'm ready to start a dumb war or build a glitchy website in exchange for some of that la dolce vita right now!

Should all of these things happen, I feel confident that we will be on totally safe ground, comparing the Healthcare.gov website to the Iraq War. Though to be honest, we will only know for sure that the analogy is apt, when President Cruz starts a pointless, costly war and everyone in the media says that it's totally like that time somebody built a website to help people buy health insurance.

<quoted text>Why does anyone think it is good that Democrats are forcing everyone to buy something even if they do not want it?
Look who the Democrats don't punish:
1. People that are lazy and choose to make themselves unemployable.
2. People that have children they cannot or choose not to afford.
3. People that drive up their medical care costs with selfish drug abuse, bad diets and sexual promiscuity that leads to disease.
But, Democrats are clearly willing to punish healthy people that have consistently made productive, good-for-the-country choices with higher insurance costs to subsidize people that have made selfish decisions.
Lots of people need help from charitably minded people and almost everyone agrees that we want to help them. But, most of the people O'bamacare will help are being helped not because of need, but because of selfish choices they have made and will continue to make, thanks to Democrat policies.
I am glad to see that you right whiners want to make people get permission from the government to have children.

If you don't like the number of people on Food Stamps & unemployment, then I would suggest you quit electing Republicans who threw millions out of their jobs when they created this recession.

Ever you ever wondered how many people who you say abuse the health care system were healthy in the years prior to their medical conditions?

How the f*ck do you morons justify the need for minimum wage jobs in order for businesses to survive & then call these same job holders lazy?

This is how GD dumb you are.

Obfuscation and insinuation from a typical DemoPuke like you.

Gee, why didn't you point out this was also in the article:

"None of the monitored world leaders is identified."

Meaning back in 2006, the NSA could have been monitoring unfriendly nations like they should be doing.

When you have no results or working plan, it seems you always result to name calling. Your tags and name calling speak counter-intuitively to your rant, old woman... Too which we can deduce is utter crap...

The lame stream media along with 10 other demokRATs have now joined Ted Cruz and the Tea Party, throwing obama under the bus, demokRATs now selling out abandoning obamaKare and jumping ship!

And... If not for obamakare, Ted Cruz and the Tea Party would not have been a great success..
