Today, Doctors have begun to complain about a questionaire concern when healthcare would be refused due to an individual's age...sounds like

those death panels to me.

Yep, thank you for the mess, Mr. Obama. Obamacare is beginning to the end of the finest medical care in the world. You should be ashamed but you won't be.

Not only are the voters uneducated many of them feel they and others are entitled and deserve to be taken care of at the expense of hard working citizens!

My understanding of the law is that the individulas must average 30 hours a week over the look back period which for 2014 will be the 2013 calendar year. Therefore, lifeguards could work 50 hours a week for 12 weeks and they would only average 11 to 12 hours a week over the course of a year, thus healthcare would not be required. This would solve the problem for such seasonal employees but not permanet part-time employees who average 30 hours a week throughout the entire year. The only answer to that would be to cut back there hours. As for requiring them to take spouse coverage I am not sure how that would work... what if the spouse was laid off and lost coverage.. what then? A loss of coverage such as this would be a qualifying event in whcih the federal law requires that you allow them the ability to come on your plan as long as it is done within 30 days.

Rather than require them to go to the spouses health care and face a law suit, why not just fire them so they can get Medicaid. The consequences of the Affordable? health care act are far reaching. When we realise what this is costing everyone. My health insurance rates went up considerably the first of the year, and so did the cost of perscriptions. Welcome to the third world.
