Albert Einstein once said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results each time.
The so-called jobs bill was nothing more than repeat of the so-called stimulus package that DumBama passed that turned out to be a total failure and a total waste of money. Thank God Republicans were in charge to stop another one.
Yes Gingrich was responsible for shutting down the government back in the 90's. Did anybody notice? But even after that shut-down, Republicans continued to keep leadership in the House right up to 2006.
If DumBama really wanted to create jobs, he would rescind Obama Care. It's that law alone responsible for timid hiring in this country and no growth. He could also quit attacking companies left and right. He could quit being the most anti-business President in our lifetime as well. Maybe that would actually help the economy and create jobs.
I would almost agree with your distorted point of view but then that would make both of us ignorant. Oh, and by the way, the DUMBAMA (racist idiot) has got over 8 million people rebates that come out to about $500 million in rebates from your precious insurance company's ripping them off,along with absurd salaries of killing people and cutting off insurance when people who have faithfully carried their insurance for years get cancelled when they get a major sickness or injury. That's the real DEATH PANELS.

I suppose you have proof of this? I didn't think so.

And did you ever ask yourself why health insurance premiums in Ohio are going up 88% next year? You got it, Obama Care. Did you ever ask yourself why healthcare insurance is going up all over the country? Did you ever ask yourself why DumBama is stalling the employer mandate for healthcare insurance? I mean...... if it's such a good idea, why didn't he start employer mandate two years ago?

You libs think that everything is free. You have absolutely no concept that when somebody gets something for free, somebody else has to pay for it. That's the way it works in the real world. Free cell phones, free food, free housing, free healthcare. It's all free...... isn't it? It all comes from the free fairy.



You cradle-to-gravers are going to be the end of this country. You're almost there, so keep voting Democrat.

Checked out pumasunleashed, the web site that you got this graphic from.

Along with their "Obama is a Communist" video, they claim they are what is known as "SATIRE". You know...like how Fox News had to state for legal purposes that they are not a news show, but in fact an "entertainment" program. Same old sneaky little rightwinger tactics.

So let's review. I posted a documented fact and you posted a mock graphic from the Tea Bagger's lame @ssed version of Mad Magazine.

Thanks for playing, Rubber Duck. Enjoy your tinfoil hat for a consolation prize and have a safe trip home.

That's nice and all, but it turns out the whole "88% increase" thing you speak of is just another sneaky ploy. Strange. Me and all my "Liberal" friends have worked hard and paid our taxes all our lives. Wonder why the now has been GOP keeps calling the hard working Americans that carry this country on their backs "free loaders"? Let's see. Newt kept crying about Clinton cheating, when in fact, Newt was cheating. Perhaps, these corporate fetch boy, bonus CEO, off shore loopholes are the free loaders and are rightfully viewed by the majority of hard working Americans as leeches on the necks of society.

Keep trying, you little scandal makers. You're almost there.

You have no idea what's not good for you. NO JOBS IS WHAT ISNT GOOD FOR YOU. You got no income to even attract fast food joints let alone any kind of incentive for a factory to move there.

Try to open your little mind a bit and look at news all over the country and you'll see some areas are reporting that under the new exchange some health care premiums are getting cut in half or better. Kinda doubled up the number the lying Taylor broad threw out there which has already been shot down as being political wrangling.

your fantasy has 1 problem..........premium's are up 20% now from 20010, and projected to rise significantly.

the only discount is for the uninsured. How does a discount from nothing to nothing get reported as progress?

Political wrangling is taking from producers and giving it to non producers in the act of fairness.

To be fair....when do producers get a handout? Why is that called welfare? Tax breaks are welfare?

We had less than 6% of the nation not insured, and now 94% have a raise in premium's, and 6% get a free pass.

How is this different than 8 years ago?

and you are brain washed.

Explain exactly how for 30 years insurance I paid for myself, has gone up because of GOP Teabaggers?

Exchange? How about buy your insurance from a provider you choose and can pay for.
Some employers provide insurance to help retain employees, but employees share in the expense.

Being self employed, I pay 100% of my benefit package for family of 4, for 25 years. Now I am re-married on my working wife's medical plan. She pays $360 a month, and employer pays remainder. In the end, she pays it all because the employers consider it a cost of the employee.

The exchange is the Government takeover of healthcare, and corrupt politicians determining whom receives treatment.

Refusing your exchange is what exactly should be done. There is no free lunch. Someone has to pay.

Healthcare is 25% of our entire economy. You want to assist the government in taking that over to continue the socialist movement in this country.

woo-boy.....you have a problem. The 2nd amendment. Many have died to keep this country free, and many willing to die defending it. You liberal loud mouths won't be willing to die for anything, because you are too busy making excuses.

Before America becomes full blown socialist, expect patriots to Declare Independence from the run away government, and revolt taking it back.

Our military swore to up hold the constitution. The constitution limits government. What % of active military do you think would follow what they swore to up hold?

Better yet.....what percentage of Officers do you expect to live up to their promise?

everyday is a ticking bomb for this administration. This administration has and is continuing to move America backwards.

Loud mouths like yourself will spin and pass the blame.

The Obama reign has caused America great damage, and is close to causing war amongst race, and society class. The war needs to be against this over reaching government that is bankrupting us on purpose.

The law requires firms with 50 or more "full-time equivalent workers" to offer health plans to employees who work more than 30 hours a week.(The law says "equivalent" because two 15 hour a week workers equal one full-time worker.) Employers that pass the 50-employee threshold and don't offer insurance face a $2,000 penalty for each uncovered worker beyond 30 employees. So by hiring the 50th worker, the firm pays a penalty on the previous 20 as well.
.
These employment cliffs are especially perverse economic incentives. Thousands of employers will face a $40,000 penalty if they dare expand and hire a 50th worker. The law is effectively a $2,000 tax on each additional hire after that, so to move to 60 workers costs $60,000.
.
A 2011 Hudson Institute study estimates that this insurance mandate will cost the franchise industry $6.4 billion and put 3.2 million jobs "at risk." The insurance mandate is so onerous for small firms that Stephen Caldeira, president of the International Franchise Association, predicts that "Many stores will have to cut worker hours out of necessity. It could be the difference between staying in business or going out of business." The franchise association says the average fast-food restaurant has profits of only about $50,000 to $100,000 and a margin of about 3.5%.
.
Because other federal employment regulations also kick in when a firm crosses the 50 worker threshold, employers are starting to cap payrolls at 49 full-time workers. These firms have come to be known as "49ers." Businesses that hire young and lower-skilled workers are also starting to put a ceiling on the work week of below 30 hours. These firms are the new "29ers." Part-time workers don't have to be offered insurance under ObamaCare.
.
The mandate to offer health insurance doesn't take effect until 2014, but the "measurement period" used by the feds to determine a firm's average number of full-time employees started last month. So the cutbacks and employment dodges are underway.
.
The savings from restricting hours worked can be enormous. If a company with 50 employees hires a new worker for $12 an hour for 29 hours a week, there is no health insurance requirement. But suppose that worker moves to 30 hours a week. This triggers the $2,000 federal penalty. So to get 50 more hours of work a year from that employee, the extra cost to the employer rises to about $52 an hour—the $12 salary and the ObamaCare tax of what works out to be $40 an hour.
.
Moving to 33 hours a week costs the employer about $10 an hour more in ObamaCare tax. Look for fewer 30-35 hour-a-week jobs. The law that was sold as a way to help business and workers is thus yanking a few more rungs from the ladder of economic upward mobility.
.
Many franchisees of Burger King, McDonalds, Red Lobster, KFC, Dunkin' Donuts and Taco Bell have started to cut back on full-time employment, though many are terrified to talk on the record. Activist groups have organized boycotts against Darden Restaurants, which owns Olive Garden and Red Lobster, for daring to publicly criticize ObamaCare. It's safer to quietly dodge the new costs and avoid becoming a political target.
.
But the damage won't be limited to franchisees or restaurants. A 2012 survey of employers by the Mercer consulting firm found that 67% of retail and wholesale firms that don't offer insurance coverage today "are more inclined to change their workforce strategy so that fewer employees meet that [30 hour a week] threshold." This week Nigel Travis, the CEO of Dunkin' Donuts, asked Congress to change the health law's definition of full-time to 40 hours a week from 30 hours so worker hours won't have to be cut.
