If a company can find ways to keep from spending millions, what do you think they will do? Where else can blame be placed? These employee's were working full time hours and not receiving benefits, many cannot afford the $70 plus to be taken out of their paychecks weekly.
Only an idiot can defend the Obamacare program when it is slamming the folks who can't make ends meet. Oh well, there's always welfare isn't there?

Completing the equation; stoopid people who would, rather than open their eyes and see the problem, leap at the chance to blame Obama instead.
"Gosh, we really hate to work you now-part-timers to death but, Obama gives us no choice! There was nothing WE could do about it! But, don't worry, all our extra cash will go towards glorious republican candidates that will break those communist unions and squash those socialist minimum wage laws that keep YOU from becoming rich! We're doing this all for YOU!"
You are so dumb.
The corporate world is our economy. So they should fork out millions or cut back, it's a no brainer business wise.

LoL.

I think the only way Ferretman would feel the pinch is if welfare was cut in half.

Oh well, you know that it's going to increase as people find their hours cut and less income means less food.

You might want to review what business publications say about the costs of Obamacare. You might also want to review the unintended consequences of the legislation. This is just one example of the unintended consequences. Employers are expected to hire fewer full time workers in favor of part time to avoid the costs of health care. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/09/dard... Darden is not the only business planning to use the part time strategy. Walmart may follow http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/12...

The way Obamacare is written it’ll impose a heavy burden on many businesses and families.

$500 per month seems very conservative based on what I’ve read related to cost to business. You of course assume the source must be Fox News. Yes, Fox occasionally distorts facts, all news outlets do. Want worse? Look at MSNBC.

You can’t discuss this subject with liberals. They don’t know the real costs of anything. Health care is very expensive. They assume it should be free.

Huh? When? Nice hospitals with excellent staffs... and $200 aspirins... Oh- and ER's full of uninsured people forced to use them as 'primary care'...
Oh! Did I say "forced"????!! Well, no one was stopping them from getting great paying jobs with employer-provided benefits...DUH!
No, it was a great system paid for by those $200 aspirins and taxes like it should be!
Who is charging $200 for aspirin? Been blowing Chris Mathews again?

The number one cause of the Kodak bankruptcy can be directly traced to digital media. Kodak failed to keep in step with market demands. Portions of Kodak will survive, the chemical, optics and medical divisions will continue to thrive.

Have you shopped around? Our costs are more than $500/mo per employee as well. We have more than 300 employees. The cost is staggering.

Do you have evidence of kickbacks? Or, are you assuming?

Greedy doctors. Interesting notion. A very good friend of mine is a doctor. Trying to collect from insurance companies requires a staff. Insurance companies limit what they’ll pay for procedures. They’ll deny reasonable claims. Add to that incredibly expensive malpractice insurance.

The three major reasons for excessive cost are pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and litigation.

I beg to differ - most Conservatives ignore the reason for high costs and blame the POTUS for everything, including healthcare. I've got news for both of you (Billy also), healthcare insurance has ALWAYS been expensive - waaaay before "Obamacare." High healthcare insurance premiums for small businesses is one of the main reasons I got out of the small business back 20 years ago. The reason for this is the rising costs of drugs and hospital care never goes down - ever. Hospitals normally run in the red - and without private donations and grants every year, many would close. Just because someone is a Republican or Democrat does not remove their responsibility to pay their bills. There is no evidence that shows one political party or another has ever contributed to rising healthcare costs. It's supply and demand.

You can't possibly term yourself as a good communicator and lump everyone from a certain group as freeloaders (my term).

If you don't beleive me, just look at what it did for your last candidate for president.

Yes, you’re correct it has always been expensive. It’s about to become more expensive for employers due to Obamacare.
