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.

Too many people bought the 'free health care' spiel. Turns out it was just lies, as some of us knew.

Obama promised this to cost less that $1,000,000,000,000. The cost is now talled to be over $6 trillion, with many paying more or losing their insurance altogether.

People need to learn this fact:

Liberalism ALWAYS generates the exact opposite of its stated intent.

That Bill has not hit home yet. wait until you have to pay tax on your employer paid healthcare, just so those who don't have it can!

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.

A glimmer of hope: this is the 'most read' article today. Maybe people reading this who haven't really thought about it much will start to ask questions.

Hopefully they will demand answers.

Except for the $700 billion Obama robbed from Medicare (at the expense of seniors), the cost for ObamaCare will be ADDED TO an already bloated Federal budget.

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!

"Under President Barack Obama, the national debt has grown by more than $6 trillion, the largest increase under any president in U.S. history.

Under President George W. Bush, the debt grew $4.9 trillion in eight years.

Presently, the federal government is embroiled in a contentious debate over $85 billion in budget cuts, or 0.005% as a percentage of the national debt."

Let us not forget the Democrat-controlled Senate has not passed a budget in over four years! Why is that?

Could it possibly be they don't want to have what they are spending down on paper? Is it easier to spend us into catastrophe by just continuously raising the debt ceiling with nothing to constrain them?

Sperling declined at least twice to directly answer questions about whether the worst-case-scenario rhetoric has hurt the president’s credibility on the issue. He instead stuck to his argument that independent economists forecast the cuts will result in 750,000 fewer jobs and that corporate executives now anticipate slower economic growth"

This sounds like a steaming pile of that-which-comes-out-of-the-back-end-of-the-male-bovine.

If it's true that slowing the growth of government spending will cost 750,000 jobs, then Obama's nearly trillion dollar stimu-lust should have created over 10 million jobs, right?

"“This is not a win for Republicans,” Sperling said. “This cuts into military preparedness.”"

Really? When has a Dim ever cried about cutting the military?? Why are they doing it now?

CNSNews.c om) – Federal revenue will return to its pre-recession levels in 2013, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), setting a record for the most money the government has ever taken in.

In its latest Budget and Economic Update, the CBO forecasts that federal revenue will top $2.7 trillion in 2013, slightly higher than the $2.6 trillion the government collected in 2007, when the last recession officially began."

Obviously, we have a spending problem, not a revenue problem.

How much money would be saved if we went back to the 2007 income levels required to get on the dole? And food stamps?

Via Ace of Spades and Coyote Blog this chart pretty much speaks for itself. That little bitty red spot is what all of the fuss has been about.

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.

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.

"WASHINGTON — Just 2 percent of health plans available to consumers in the private insurance market offer all the coverage that will become mandatory next year under the health care overhaul, a new analysis has found.

The analysis found that basic benefits, including doctor visits, emergency room care, hospitalizations and lab tests, were standard offerings for nearly all the 11,000 plans in the study.

But only one in four offered pediatric care and only 8 percent covered dental checkups for children. About one-third covered maternity and newborn care and just over half covered services to deal with substance abuse."
