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

May 6, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.latimes.com

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.

Watch this trend grow like topsy..... The chickens in ObamaCARE are coming home to roost.

Can't wait for the mid-terms when all the NEW part time workers get to vote about how they feel being downgraded from fulltime so their companies could economically compete/comply with ObamaCARE.

An amendment is needed.

Every employer is responsible for the same percentage of a worker's health benefit, as that portion of a work-week the worker is employyed.

Work 16 hours at WALBOX, get 50% of your healthcare paid from that employer.

Work 16 more at a hamburger shop, cover the rest.

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.

And $2-million is only about forty-cents per Long Beach resident a year. It is well worth the cost.

I wonder if the GOP is regretting their demand that "single-payer" be removed.

I'M waiting for all the people who voted for Obama to see THEIR hours cut or laid off in order for their employers to comply with the letter of the law. And I hope they do it with a vengence. If I were an employer I'd find out which of my employees voted for Obummer and THEY'D be the first to go.

I think it's time to dump Obamacare. And Obama after Wednesday and the BENGHAZI hearings.

Benghazi will kill two birds with one stone.... It will taint Obama's legacy almost as bad a Nixon's and effectively make him an even more lame duck. Congress will be done with him. ALSO,the truth about Hillary's negligence will come out. So much for HER 03:00am phone call. She got it and went back to sleep. Her part in the cover-up is just icing on the cake,as was her "what difference does it make" testimony. Let her try to run in '16. The clip of THAT will make a loverly ad.

How was the USSR even remotely similar to the USA?

Where did I say anything about being a progressive? I asked how the USA is like the USSR, and I do not see a very solid answer.

What good would it do to explain it to you? You can't even tell the difference between an man's butt and a vagina.

Yes. You are right. Unless we have learned that history repeats itself, we have learned nothing.

After the "Liberals" murdered the Christian Czar and his little God-fearing family, they proceeded to legitimize their revolutionary rule by creating the quasi-legitimate Soviet State. The end result was the butchering of more than 60 MILLIONS White European Christian women, children, and other Christians.

At the beginning of the 60s 70s revolution, most Americans believed it could never happen here. It appears we were wrong.

Since mandatory purchasing of insurance was originally a conservative idea, I bet they are in hog heaven, and if it doesnt work out, then they can blame it on the dems who actually got it passed.
