Affordable Care Act:
1.The Act was designed to reduce overall health care costs by making services available to the 32 million who currently can't get insurance. They often use a hospital emergency room as their primary care physician, increasing costs for everyone. This starts in 2014.
2.For people who can't afford health insurance, the Federal government will pay the states to add them to Medicaid. The income requirement is expanded up to 133% of the Federal poverty level - roughly $29,000 for a family of four.
3.Those who don't qualify for the expanded Medicaid will receive tax credits if their income is below 400% of the poverty level ($88,000 for a family of four). States will be required to set up insurance exchanges to make it easier to shop for private health insurance coverage.
4.Insurance companies cannot deny children coverage for pre-existing conditions. This benefit applies to everyone in 2014. Insurance companies can no longer drop anyone from coverage once they get sick. If a company denies someone coverage, that person can go to an external appeals process.
5.Parents can put their children up to age 26 on their health insurance plans. This will bring more profit for health insurance companies, since they will receive more premiums without higher costs for these healthier individuals. As of 2012, more than three million previously uninsured young people were added.(Source: Department of Health and Human Services)
6.The Medicare "donut hole" gap in coverage will be eliminated by 2020.
7.People with existing health insurance will keep it. Businesses prefer to offer a tax-free benefit like health insurance to attract good workers. That won't change under Obamacare.
8.Obamacare does not apply to businesses with less than 50 employees. Larger businesses are required to offer health insurance, but receive tax credits to help employees pay premiums. In 2014, the tax credit increases to 50%.
9.The Act will lower the budget deficit by $143 billion over the next 10 years by raising some taxes and shifting more cost burdens.(Source: CBO CBO Report on Health Care Reform and the Budget; Wall Street Journal, What Health Insurance Ruling Means, June 28, 2012; NPR, Medicaid Expansion, June 27, 2012)

Or would you like to reconsider your bold prediction? You don't have a very good track record with that sort of thing, do you? LOL!
Ever since LBJ declared a war on poverty the parasites in the U.S. have been consuming the host. Well, parasites, the host is finally fighting back. You made your mistake when you chose the side of the socialist instead of the capitalist. Your mistake was the failure to recognize the fact that socialism only works until you run out of other peoples money.

two hedge funds that own Hostess ran the company into the ground. They've looted it as much as they can, giving Hostess executives stunning raises this year (the CEO got a 300% raise). Now they've made insane demands of their labor which already took the brunt of the 2004 bankruptcy, savings that were never put back into the company. The owners are framing the unions, plain and simple.

According to the article, some started to cross the lines in spite of union threats to be fined for doing so. But, it wasn't enough to keep the company afloat.

So yeah, they showed 'em, now the owners still have their retirement and the workers, instead of an 8% cut in pay and bennies, now get to have a 100% cut in pay and bennies. And, you know, there's just lots and lots of jobs out there to just go and grab.

Should've taken the cut in pay, better than no job at all....

Ya those morons should have taken more pay cuts, cuts in health care, time off etc. Hell, people should work for free and be glad they are working. Also stop complaining when they make min wage, working 60 to 70 hours a week while management takes 300% pay increase. Your right Hostess should have a dedicated workforce, what is the problem?

Get freakin real. People complain because Wal Mart goes to third word countries where people are paid pennies yet don't have a problem with corporate america being turned into the same thing by the greedy.

Unions WERE on their way out because working conditions had gotten better. Now there is once again a need for the unions to stand up for the middle class.

Hostess strike continues despite threat of liquidation

Some of the workers said bring on liquidation. They hope that would mean another company may buy some of the iconic Hostess brands and the plant in Biddeford would be continue to operate but under a different owner.

The free market has spoken; not sure why the employees are taking the blame. Seems like Hostess couldn't stay competitive and the cost of labor is only a piece of the puzzle. I thought you people who read the WSJ understood economics? Maybe not. By the way, the new CEO is a hatchet man so no surprise this is where this ended up. There is now a convenient scapegoat that all you righties like to blame everything on for Hostess closing. Yes it's those disgusting people who want a living wage, health care, safe workplaces, vacations, etc. Man, those little people want everything!

Here's the thing, I know there are many folks out there today, who would love to have that job at that "cut rate" salary. so, greedy or not, if the owners can't sustain the profitability of the company, they cannot remain in business.

Sure, sales are down, more competition, rising costs.Sometimes companies must cut back, But, the way I see it in this case, the union are the ones who are refusing to budge, and therefore, over 18,000 workers are now unemployed.
Lay the blame where you will, but, these are tough economic times, sometimes you gotta compromise.
