Only a low grade moron isn't aware of the following: in the rest of the first world, employment is DECOUPLED from healthcare . Why wouldn't the chance to lay those costs off somewhere else not be a good thing for those who run a business ?Having trouble finding a good job and affordable health insurance? Thank Obamacare.
The Obamacare debacle is 100% Democrat legislation.
Not a single Republican voted for this boondoggle. Not one.
Remember that as you pay your increased insurance rates and deductibles and as you vote in November.

Obamacare is Affecting Everyone
Aug 30, 2014
Millions of people are out of work and can’t find a job.
Many of those who have jobs are being forced to work part-time instead of full-time.
And those who have full-time jobs are in for a nasty surprise. Next year’s take home pay is like likely to be smaller than what they earn right now.
In all cases the reason is the same: Obamacare.
Why can’t people find a job? Three Federal Reserve Banks – in Philadelphia, New York and Atlanta – have released business surveys that confirm what many of us have been predicting.
The new health law is discouraging a significant number of firms from hiring and is also pushing workers into part-time, rather than full time jobs.
The Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia survey of business in its region finds that because of Obamacare:
* 18.2% of employers say they cut workers versus 3.0 percent who hired more.
* 18.2% say the proportion of part-time workers is higher versus 1.5% who say it is lower.
* 13.7% reported more outsourcing to other firms versus 3% with less outsourcing.
The New York Fed found that because of Obamacare:
* 21% of manufacturers say they are reducing employment, while 3% are increasing their workforce.
* Among manufacturers, 19.3% say they are increasing the proportion of part-time work, while 3.5% say they are reducing it.
An Atlanta Fed poll earlier this month found that 34% of businesses planned to hire more part-time workers than in the past, mostly because of a rise in the relative costs of their full-time colleagues.

Judicial Watch: DOJ Admits Lois Lerner’s E-mails Exist
August 25, 2014
A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s apparently missing e-mails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesn’t plan to retrieve them.
“A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and there’s a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox News’s Shannon Bream.
“But it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerner’s e-mails from that backup system,” Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.“So, everything we’ve been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing e-mails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, it’s all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records, but they don’t want to.”
Fitton said his group plans to ask a federal judge to order the IRS to hand over the e-mails, which conservative opponents of Lerner want to see in order to determine if there is a link between President Obama’s team and the IRS’s targeting of tea-party groups.

Ex Republican and Conservative Virginia Gov. McDonnell and Wife Found Guilty !!!!!!
RICHMOND, Va.—A jury found former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen guilty of a slate of public corruption charges on Thursday, rejecting the couple's defense that their marriage was too broken for them to conspire and that they didn't break the law by accepting lavish gifts in exchange for backing a wealthy donor's business.
Mr. McDonnell was convicted on 11 conspiracy-related counts, and Mrs. McDonnell was convicted on nine counts, including conspiracy and obstruction of justice. The couple had pleaded not guilty to 14 charges each.
The jury of seven men and five women deliberated for about 48 hours after hearing testimony for more than a month in federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia. The courthouse is a short walk from the governor's mansion the McDonnell's inhabited from 2010 through January of this year.
Mr. McDonnell ran on family values, and wasteful government spending !!!

Ex- Republican Va. governor guilty of public corruption !!!!!!!!
RICHMOND, Va.— A federal trial mired in soap-opera details of a broken marriage inside the governor's mansion ended in the harsh light of a jury convicting former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, on multiple public corruption charges Thursday.
Jurors rejected a defense built on assertions the couple was barely speaking when Bob McDonnell was in office and that they could not possibly have conspired to trade access to their power for $165,000 in loans and luxury gifts.
The largess was courtesy of a businessman, the prosecution's star witness, who was seeking to win backing from the powerful couple for one of his company's nutritional supplements.
The former governor was found guilty on 11 of 13 federal charges filed against him, his wife on nine of 13 charges filed against her. The indictment carried 14 total charges. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 6.
The jury deliberated about 18 hours over three days without a single question, despite the complicated nature of the evidence and indictment. After the verdicts were read and family members wept in the courtroom, the McDonnells -- married for 38 years -- left separately.
The ex-governor, a onetime political star who soared to hold the same office as Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry and was touted in Republican circles as a possible running mate for 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, walked into a witness waiting room. Maureen McDonnell came out later, hugging one of her daughters while weeping loudly, and went into a separate waiting room.
When an ashen-faced Bob McDonnell finally emerged from the courthouse to climb into a waiting blue Mercedes, he was mobbed by TV cameras. "All I can say is that my trust remains in the Lord," he said quietly.
Here is a guy that wanted Obama impeached !!

Washington Post Finds Obama’s ISIS Strategy…Sort Of
Washington Post columnist David Ignatius has found Barack Obama’s strategy to “degrade and destroy” that terrorist army ISIS. Sort of.
In his column today, Ignatius writes,“Obama does seem to have a strategy, and it gets pretty good marks from allies abroad.”
Awesome! What is it?
The next line in his piece is,“But many components aren’t ready yet, and some aren’t fully conceptualized.” Um…
A strategy that isn’t “ready yet” could still be a strategy, but one with major components not yet “fully conceptualized,” to me, isn’t really a strategy.
It’s more like an idea or two. And given the fact that the President of the United States has had a year AND the entire Pentagon at his disposal, an idea or two is literally the bare minimum you should expect…from a janitor.

David Gregory Slams Obama:‘Big, Expansive Terrorist Threat Amassed On His Watch’
NBC’s David Gregory had some unpredictably harsh words for the White House during an interview with Senator Dick Durbin on Sunday, noting that “a big, expansive terrorist threat that has amassed” under President Obama’s watch.
The “Meet the Press” host spoke with the Illinois Democrat over the limited air campaign ordered by the president to blunt the advance of ultra-violent jihadists in northern Iraq. Gregory requested the senator’s insight as to how the United States found itself again involved in the region.
“Is the problem that the Obama administration — wanting to be something other than President Bush – got out of the business of confronting terrorism on a big, global scale and just dealt with it in a more limited way?” he asked.“Is it an underreaction to the terrorist threat?”
Durbin tried to steer the conversation specifically back to Iraq, but Gregory cut him off.”I’m talking about the terrorist threat!” he said.“I’m talking about fighting terrorism.”
“The Obama team said,‘We are not in the business of a global fight against terror, we’re fighting al-Qaida in limited forms,” the NBC host continued.“This is a big, expansive terrorist threat that has amassed on his watch.”

We don't need a socialist Democrat governor that's owned by the greedy teacher's unions or any other union ,$billions$ have been 'WASTED' dumping money on education that consistently puts out failures graduating high school with degrees in forklift operation . Lowering grade point standards to garner more Gov't. handouts & wages & pensions for those who work only 9 months a year with holidays off . Public school systems are a bigger FAILURE than Welfare . Stop the Socialist Democratic Party that favors millionaire elitists while raping the taxpayers. An easy four year degree sure as hell don't equate to $70,000 plus full benefits , sick leave , personal days & the best pension going - for working 9 months a year . Wise up & wake up !
