Part-timers to lose pay amid health act's new math

There are 94 comments on the www.latimes.com story from May 6, 2013, titled Part-timers to lose pay amid health act's new math. In it, www.latimes.com reports that:

The law requires large employers offering health insurance to include part-time employees working 30 hours a week or more.

Consider the city of Long Beach. It is limiting most of its 1,600 part-time employees to fewer than 27 hours a week, on average. City officials say that without cutting payroll hours, new health benefits would cost up to $2 million more next year, and that extra expense would trigger layoffs and cutbacks in city services.

Sure they are. Just ask the Ambassador to Libya's widow. Ask the landlord who though he was renting to one family, and figures out 3 mexican families are living on his property, and two in the garage. And on, and on, and on. Now run along, and kill yourself.

Yeah... we'll see in 2016 when the democrats win the presidency again (which even the most stubborn repubs know is highly likely)

You could be right. The Democrat gangsters have been very successful in building a voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people. The Long Beach political ruling class is not unique in that respect.

Welfare money beats pointless overseas wars and foreign aid to shady countries, at least welfare money goes to local businesses.

By that I mean it is spent in local businesses by people on welfare, it was phrased weird.

Yes. That was the theory behind Government diverting more and more of the modest heard earned "wealth" of the worker ("middle") class to the Africans in order to "buy peace".

During the 60s, 70s the Africans burned most large American cities. The politicians and their high paid agenda driven Government judge pals believed such transfers would calm the Africans, and anyway, only the worker ("middle") class women and men would be endangered by violent African behavior.

As Government's feminist political operatives would say, "We have come a long way, Baby." Since the program to buy African peace was implemented it has bankrupted the entire nation. In addition, African "youth" have grown up in an era where there has been no restraint placed on their behavior. This has served to embolden them to such an extent that no one is safe now, not even ruling class politicians and the judges. The question is, what will they do now?

Well, one thing is for sure, conservatives are going the way of the dinosaur, and they are slowly but surely finding out what it is like to be in the minority. Ironically, perhaps this will lead to the GOP being a progressive party in the future.

And you will find out what it's like to have the economic power of post-WWI Germany. Perhaps, after a few years of digging in trash cans to feed your family, this will lead to liberals applying their inherent sensibilities, and morphing into neonazi's to bring our morally exhausted people order and hope. Just like last time.

The government(the people) are gonna pay for these uninsured anyway so may as well insure them through the job. It will cost taxpayers less than paying welfare that is poorly managed.
So if we pay for their health insurance we don't have to pay for their welfare too? Sounds fair.

Well, in a way, I hope it does. That will keep blacks and hispanics empowered. You know, the folks voting against gay marriage? One of the few really good things about illegal immigration is we're importing a massive army of Catholics who will ensure gay marriage will never happen in So. Cal., and that's a good thing!

yeah, they sure will.
except it wont just be folks that voted for "O", it'll be across the board.
but don't you worry, the CEO's will get big fat bonuses for saving the company money.

Even in Soviet Russia people got wealthy. Especially if they were connected. You know,like Obama's big money supporters. Think "Green Energy".

Agree, and we get to keep doing the same thing. However, now we'll just get to pay more. Even the slowest progressive knows their health insurance will go up between 20-60% in the next 4 years. Maybe your company will cover it, maybe not. The only safe ones are federal employees.

You are so right. California will never MAN UP and save their kids from the hard left. The voting majority just don't have the integrity.

I didn't realize so many corrupt republicans were in Obama's inner circle.
