Lets review what was said
" Full-time workers are being reduced to part-time workers.
Because they are part-time, they loose their medical insurance"
Now, it says that companies are changing people from FT to PT & they are losing their insurance.
If hey are losing their insurance then they must have had it before.
So if the company's goal is to not pay insurance, why haven't they changed to PT work before?
The entire post was based on the idea that companies that currently offer insurance, won't anymore. And that just stupid.
The higher copays & deductibles comment was obviously about the exchanges. People don't have to buy from the exchanges & if they do, they have options relating to out-of-pocket expenses.
So if the company's goal is to not pay insurance, why haven't they changed to PT work before?

Because, before ObamaKare, everything was in an acceptable condition. The only change was ObamaKare. Without ObamaKare being forced down everyone's throat, these companies would still be employing everyone full time and providing insurance for them.

Your Marxist programs are killing the economy, exactly like what has happened in every country that allowed Marxist communism to infect their government in history without exception.

And you fucking morons didn't expect this to happen? This was one of the first predictions made in the ObamaKare (you have to pass it to know what's in it) discussion. Everyone knew this would happen from day one.

Even you have to admit the Democrats are idiots on this one.

The REAL issue is not that they choose to or not to take part in Obamacare....IT IS THAT THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE THE OPTION!!!! If you pass the law you should HAVE TO follow it!
There should be no choice in the matter.
The fact that you don't get that makes YOU dumber than crap!
You can buy insurance just like you did before.

The only mandate is to have insurance. You do not have to buy it through the exchanges.

Do you have health insurance?

There are lots of laws that say what he can & can not do, what we have to do or face the consequences.

Unless we pass a law that says hospitals medical people can refuse to treat those who cannot pay in advance, then we need a mandate. If we want to eliminate pre-existying conditions, we need a mandate.

Until then, get insurance or pay the fine. Mooching off the system should not be an option.
Its not a new concept. Deal with it.

He was the God of the Jews &, even if he was, it's been proven that the people of Jerusalem back in those days , were in fact colored people. The bible even states as much! Now I personally wish this wasn't a case of black & white but, it's always the case. You've self admitted that Obama out campaigned both McCain & Romney so, why is it you were against the winner in your mind &, eventual president elect? The game you republicans have been playing has now come to an end. You know the game of " do the opposite of the president at all cost." Problem is, it's now about to cost you more than the presidential election, you'll lose the house in 2014 as well.
You invent way too much in your post. For example, concerning the election, I pointed out the fact that there were very many locations where it was obvious some programmer was so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. Naturally, most of the programmers weren't that stupid, and they programmed the voting machines to steal one in three or one in four votes.
Nobody knows who won the last election.

Now, back to the post in which you didn't address one of any of the points made. Here it is again for your convenient reference, if you choose to address any of the points, as opposed to running away from them like you and all Democrats usually do.

When you dupes acknowledge the obvious conclusion that Frank Marshal Davis is Obama's biological father, we can begin to have a reasonable discussion. Look at the photos. It's obvious.
In case you're completely ignorant, the communist movement is, and has always been world-wide. They plan for the future. They plan to be here fighting to eliminate capitalism 50 years from now, and farther into the future. They have intentions that span as much time as it takes to eliminate capitalism from the Earth.
The original people who walked across the land bridge connecting Asia and North America 20,000 years ago discovered America.
Jesus was a jew. It has been speculated he could have had a Roman father. I don't know of anyone on Earth so ignorant to have speculated Jesus was black. But, that's Jesus the human. Jesus the ideology has no race. You need to at least make an effort to stop thinking in terms of race.
You show obvious signs of what psychiatrists call "projection". It is you who wishes to be on the winning side so bad, lying just becomes part of you. You do not even have a concept of any other motivation. The truth is, I want only to be on the just side, win or lose. You gobble up every lie just because you think winning is more important than being honest, truthful, and just.
To prove this point, should we go over the recent US history of the previous century and identify the system of lies the Democrats invented and successfully duped the entire country with? How about you explain why we get a constant stream of obvious lies from the White House since Obama took office. Then, explain to us why you mindlessly regurgitate them.
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the US in Benghazi?
Why is Obama lying right now about the total debt?
Why does Obama lie about being at Columbia?
Why does Obama lie about being born in Hawaii?
Why does the White House put an obviously fraudulent "birth certificate" on the website? Why don't they just submit that document as evidence and be done with the issue?
Why do you constantly regurgitate the obvious lies from Obama and the Democrats?

Behind their Patriotic Disguise:
The Tea Party behaves like the Taliban.
The concept of threatening, calling for, and inciting violence against the government has never been a part of being a patriotic American.
Whether it was Sarah Palin telling her sychochants to "don't retreat, reload", Michelle Bachman calling for Minnesotans to be armed and dangerous or Sharon Angle citing second Amendment remedies it is always teabaggers calling for violence against their enemies in government. Tea Party Taliban name is well deserved.

The CIA expects to furlough about 12,500 civilians working for the agency, according to the sources. But specific numbers for other agencies were not immediately clear, the officials told Reuters. The CIA and White House declined to comment.

Obama’s economic program is taken directly from the Marxist playbook and Marxist economics.
Reviewing Marx’s 10-point platform for how to socialize a country’s economy in stages (“The Communist Manifesto,” chapter two), Team Obama and his congressional progressive allies have taken actions to further the goals laid out in all 10 of the planks in the Marx platform.
If you want to read some examples, here they are:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/markhendrickson/2...
You don't admit that your "mentor" was a Marxist and seek out Marxist professors in college unless you tend to lean toward Marxism yourself.
You're going to have to do better than an opinion piece by a libertarian professor at a second rate right wing "Christian" college that espouses the very un-Christian free market theology. I read his opinion piece and some others written by him and find it easy to dismiss them as the rantings of a right wing libertarian who thinks that corporations should be able to rape and pillage the environment for profit.
His assertion that Obama often has thwarted the development of domestic energy supplies through arbitrary regulatory control over massive tracts of federally owned land and restricting drilling in American waters off our coasts is a lie. In March 2010 the President proposed opening vast tracts of off shore sites for oil exploration and drilling ranging from Florida to Delaware and the east Gulf coast and northern Alaska many of these for the first time. Some environmentally sensitive areas are still off limits but to my mind that's exhibiting proper stewardship of our land.
His assertion that Obama is "obsessed" with taxing the rich is also a lie. Taxes on the upper incomes are less than they were under the Clinton Administration.
His statement on estate taxes is another lie. Under a deal made with the GOP Obama exempted more than 40,000 estates worth $1 million to $10 million even in the face of opposition by many Democrats.
He puts the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act squarely on Obama when in fact as part of the HIRE Act it was passed by the House 217-201 and the Senate 68-29 which means it was agreed to by members of both parties.
He criticizes Dodd-Frank which prevents large institutions from gambling with depositors money. He is also against the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which as I've stated before will make it less likely that you'll get screwed on your home purchase and gives you recourse if you are. Should the government exert control over large institutions who if they make a mistake can topple the economy? Past history tells us yes.
Obama has in fact opposed the "Fairness Doctrine" so that's another lie.
High speed rail is not this moron's opinion not a "boondoggle" but a realistic way to decrease dependence on fossil fuels and whose construction would create thousands of jobs.
He also decries "free" education as Marxist when in fact it's biggest champion was Thomas Jefferson.
We can see where this is going, Mark Hendrickson is just another faux Christian who shills for those that Jesus leveled his harshest judgment on.

Navigator Dress Code: Hoodie with Ass Crack Showing

Experience: Community organizers, ACORN a plus

Knowledge: Fluent in illegal alien, English not required

Special Skills: Selling personal information and stealing social security numbers

Welcome to ObamaWreck! Americans nationwide spent Tuesday struggling with the much-hyped "Affordable Care Act" health insurance exchanges.

Server meltdowns, error messages and security glitches plagued the federal and state government websites as open enrollment began.

But when taxpayers discover exactly WHO will be navigating them through the bureaucratic maze, they may be glad they didn't get through.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius controls a $54 million slush fund to hire thousands of "navigators," "in-person assisters" and counselors, who are now propagandizing and recruiting Obamacare recipients into the government-run exchanges.

The Nanny State navigator corps is a serious threat to Americans' privacy. BACKGROUND CHECKS AND TRAINING REQUIREMENTS ARE MINIMAL TO NONEXISTENT. A HISTORY OF FRAUD IS NO BARRIER TO ENTRY.

Case in point: the seedy nonprofit Seedco. This community-organizing group snagged lucrative multimillion-dollar navigator contracts in Georgia, Maryland, Tennessee and New York.

The New York Post reports this week that the outfit "is partnering with dozens of agencies, such as the Gay Men's Health Crisis, Food Bank for New York City and the Chinese American Planning Council, in each of (the Big Apple's) five boroughs."

They'll have access to potential enrollees' income levels, birthdates, addresses, eligibility for government assistance, Social Security numbers and intensely personal medical information.

Given the enormous responsibility to handle sensitive data in a careful, neutral manner, combined with the overwhelming pressure to boost Obamacare enrollments, YOU'D THINK the feds would only choose navigators with the most impeccable records. Yet, less than a year ago, Seedco agreed to settle a civil fraud lawsuit "for faking at least 1,400 of 6,500 job placements under a $22.2 million federally funded contract with the city."

Seedco's corrupt behavior went far beyond defrauding taxpayers through abuse of New York City programs, federal Labor Department funding and federal stimulus dollars.

Seedco (which stands for "Structured Employment Economic Development Corporation") tried to destroy and defame whistleblowing official Bill Harper, who discovered and reported the rampant falsification of data.

First, Seedco denied the charges;

next, they trashed Harper's reputation in the pages of The New York Times.

Only after the U.S. Attorney's office in Manhattan brought suit did the organization acknowledge systemic, repeated wrongdoing.

Seedco forked over a $1.7 million settlement in December 2012. Mere months later, they were racking up federal Obamacare navigator work.

Yet, another example of the inmates running the asylum.

The billionaire who created Beanie Babies is expected to plead guilty when he appears before a federal judge on tax evasion charges.

H. Ty Warner's lawyer has previously said the 69-year-old would enter a guilty plea during Wednesday's arraignment in Chicago as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

Lookey Lookey at who is minding the ObamaCare store!

What you like fries with your identity being stolen?

THUGS AS "NAVIGATORS:" NO BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIRED AND IF YOU HAVE A CRIMINAL RECORD...NO PROBLEMO.

The feds and Seedco assure us that new management is in place. They rearranged some deck chairs, created a new "compliance program" and hired an independent reviewer. But an ethos of by-any-means-necessary book-cooking and a culture of intimidating whistleblowers don't disappear overnight. Seedco shredded documents for three years to phony up their job placement statistics; city government overseers knew about it. The Nonprofit Quarterly noted that Seedco's fraud was "kind of breathtaking" in its "creativity and illegal audacity," including:

--"Taking credit for a job candidate's prior employment as job placements;

--Reporting job placements when the job candidates remained unemployed;

--Falsifying dates of job placements;

--Using other Seedco programs to collect information on clients in order to falsely report job placements; and

--Reporting job placements for people who were not Seedco clients and had not been placed in their jobs by Seedco."

The feds detailed how Seedco managers would instruct clerical workers to troll Monster.com and Careerbuilder.com for resumes and then "report the employment of individuals sourced from those downloaded resumes as job placements." Other employees exploited their relationships with businesses to "gather information from the businesses' current employees. Seedco then used that information to falsely report that employment as a job placement obtained for the candidate by Seedco, although the individuals had no prior relationship with Seedco and had not been recruited into the job by Seedco."

This entire government-nonprofit alliance rests on dragooning as many people as possible into government programs, including food stamps, CHIP (the federal Children's Health Insurance Program) and now Obamacare. One of Seedco's officials actually said the fraud case "made us a stronger organization." Yes, they actually sold their deliberate number-fudging as an asset instead of a liability. And four states swallowed the pitch whole. The spirit of fraud-stained ACORN and its Nanny State progeny lives.

So, buyers, beware: Obamacare security "glitches" are not just a bug. They're a feature.
