Then again maybe it was not.Oh the problematic irony. The Democrat Party, from President Obama on down, repeatedly lectured us that passing their big government health care law was the only way to reduce the number of uninsured. With the enrollment deadline for ObamaCare rapidly approaching, its looking like that was another lie

Employers are seeing an increase in the number of full-time workers taking advantage of company health benefit offerings even as a parade of companies like Target Corp.(TGT) end health benefits for part-time workers.
