    Who needs ObamaCare?

    Thanks to ObamaCare, my job was cut from full-time to part-time and to put it quite simply, my budgeted income is SIGNIFICANTLY less as of Dec. 1st. I worked overtime quite a bit through the course of the past 1-1/2 years to make a decent income, but that will come to an end. The "people" demanded "affordable care" for everyone, so you're going to get what you pay for. I worked my a$$ off, not taking breaks, shortened lunches, and waiting several hours at a time to even manage to find time to take a leak. Not any more. ObamaCare will ultimately lead to the level of service you'll find at WalMart.

    That said, the end result if that my whole family is eligible for FREE medicaid and I won't need the $10k+ annual subsidy from ObamaCare.

    Thanks Obama!

    Sorry to hear about your job.
    The problem is, quite a few people think you can get something for nothing.
    I don't know how many people have asked me, "What do you have against FREE HEALTHCARE?"

    Sorry to hear of this for you. It does seem to be a familiar tune these during these days of ObamaCare.

    THIS IS THE NEW NORMAL . . . bringing EVERYONE DOWN to lower levels of comfort, lower levels of income, lower levels of accomplishment. Welcome to the U.S.S.R. If you are old enough then you know how miserable that was for the people who lived under that communist/socialist utopia. I was lucky enough to be one of the rare Americans to travel behind the Iron Curtain before the fall of communism. When I returned home I very literally got off the plane and kissed the American soil. I now see us following the same policies that failed in so many communist/socialist nations.

    If your employer pays your premiums he is entitled to a govt subsity that will pay up to 50% of your premiums under the ACA guidlines.

    Why pay towards the employer plan when my base pay was cut to an income level eligible for Medicaid? I won't pay a dime towards ObamaCare.

    I know several people that have been cut to part time, and their employers won't tell them why.
    The things you have done. The things you felt you had to do, all leading to this moment.

    the sad fact is that only part time folks are the ones that need thatguycare. shame they can't afford it because their taxes went up and hours were cut because of thatguycare.
