I have to differ in opinion on the effects of Obamacare, sorry man.
A huge percentage of those 6000 jobs have come about by taking half the hours/wages from 6000 existing jobs... along the lines of this employment model used by Wal-Mart.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/12...

Several business's in our town have recently implemented the same strategy. For example, a couple of weeks ago Foodfair cut its employees hours in half such that none but a few of its employees will ever work more than 25 hours a week. Using the 6000 job number above, it can be logically deduced that in our state Obamacare has replaced 6000 full-time jobs with 12,000 part-time jobs.

That's not what's happening. The estimates 6,000 new jobs aren't specifically named in any industry. Over a half-billion of new federal money will be injected into the health system, creating huge numbers of spin-offs from WalMart to gas stations to car dealerships to nursing.

Seen that pic before. I collect pig pics. I have a few from our force here in the 'Wood that would cause me to be hunted.

Yeh, I heard about this, too. 6,000 new clinician positions in local clinics throughout the state who will give prostate exams to all you folks who like to get screwed up the proverbial A$$. This one's for you, bacon, your socialist king, and your "healthcare plan".:)

Until my premiums and deductible start to go back down to "less than ridiculous," Obamacare sucks.

You always say this, yet have you ever once thought that Obamacare is happening precisely to PREVENT insurance companies from screwing people? It hasn't even taken effect yet, and your insurance company raised rates arbitrarily, without reason. Why? Because they know they're about to be reigned in and will have to do business with some standard of ethics, unlike when they could tell a kid with cancer, "sorry."

LOL I took a peak at the whole album. Priceless. Some creative genius there with a knack for collecting.

Can't say which were my fave - there were quite a few. Still ROFL.

I just don't see it playing out that way. I won't claim to have any deep understanding of the Affordable Healthcare Act. I just see the dark side of it starting to unfold in the marketplace.

My subjective opinion right now is that all it has accomplished so far is to throw a lot of people into an almost permanent economic Charybdis from which they cannot escape, and they still have no hope for affordable insurance... I like the sentiment behind the Act, I just think it was poorly conceived and poorly implemented.

Some of Obama-care has been implemented , like keeping adult children on your policy until age 26. This has caused my co-pay to raise ,from $25 a office visit to $40 a visit. I never had a co-pay on scripts but now I do, never on dental always had $2500 a yr max on each member of the family. My Health-care is through my Union and when We asked why Co-pays were raised. It was explained to us that keeping children on the plan until 26 was the reason.In 2014 when Obama-care is fully implemented we will have to claim what our company pays for our health-care as taxable income,that's a extra $22,000 a yr in my case. This will push me and my wife over the $250,000 mark. That don't make us a 2%, that don't classify us as rich. But we will be forced to pay for the ones that didn't try in life.

I would like to know how you can call yourself an American If you complain about it costing you literally next to nothing so that 40 million children can get the medicine they need. Not children in Africa. Children right here. In West Virginia.

obama is way in over his head and based on his history of lying i dont believe anything he says. the liberals use him because he's multi racial and can reach out to spread socialism. the man has had everything handed to him on a silver platter and has never worked a day in his life. this guy is hell bent on destroying america and has been doing so for four solid years. he is a puppet.

I'll support it when it happens. For now, all it's done is take more of my paycheck.

I call myself an American because I fought and bleed for my Country. What have you done? No Child in America can be denied medical attention, right now as we speak.The County DHHR will provide them with a medical card!!Drunk,dope smoking punks ,who has done nothing to improve theirselves, should not be able to take away from ppl who have worked hard their entire life to gain financial freedom. Do you have a extra bed-room, a couch , room on the floor ? Put your money where your mouth is and adopt a bum!!

You're not shooting at the right target... The 'Bums' have had medicaid and welfare for several decades already. Obamacare isn't providing them with anything new. The goal of the Affordable Care Act is to provide health insurance to hard working people who can not afford to buy it on their own.

Show me well documented reliable resources ,where WV children are going without medicine. And then if you can show these resources, show how much you donated from your own pocket to help. If this problem is so epidemic in WV ,how can you call yourself a American without opening your wallet and your home. Don't you care enough too spare the money you blow in weed a week ,to provide medicine for children right here in WV?
