Obamacare: States and universities begin cutting workers hours to avoid healthcare costs

February 10, 2013

The irony of this story is just too sweet to ignore.

  As a result of the provision in the healthcare reform law which reclassified full time employees as those employees working at least 30 hours instead of 40 hours we have seen several companies announce they are cutting the hours of their part-time employees to under 30 hours because they cannot afford to provide them with healthcare and they wish to avoid the Obamacare penalty.

  Of course the only people being hurt by this are the workers who will now be taking home less money and will now be the ones paying the penalty on their taxes next year if they do not purchase what the government deems to be an acceptable healthcare plan. (Thank you John Roberts!)

  But the story I linked to above contains an interesting twist to this trend because now we are learning that some states are cutting the hours of  part-time employees to under 30 hours as well. No longer can the left make the claim that greedy corporations are only looking to save a buck while trying to blame Obamacare because now the government is doing the same.

  And the same applies to more and more universities (which have been pushing a liberal agenda for years) across the nation as well, I guess they don’t want to practice what they have been preaching.

  I’ve written it many times in the past but it bears repeating: this was the desired effect of Obamacare from the beginning. The law was designed to push people out of employer based healthcare knowing the people couldn’t afford healthcare on their own in the hope that this would force people into supporting a single-payer (government run) system. And the plan is coming together…..

    And possibly an unseen “INTENDED” consequence was ….. to make us more like Europe, where people are ….. more focused on “La Dolcha Vita” (sp?) …. the good life …… Wrong or right, here, in the U.S., people tie the good life together with possessions / property / wealth …..

    The larger picture …. it’s all part of a plan to take America from being a world power. And that’s becuuse our nation’s heritage has been, …. the only nation whose people were / are willing to die for the freedom of others.

    This psychologically-sick-puppy @ 1600 Pennsylvania still has his roots in hate!

      Yep, all the “unintended” consequences were very much intended!

    Do I undestand it then that you get penalised IN TAXES if you don’t purchase PRIVATE medical insurance which is not recognised by a government which should be using said taxes to pay for said medical care anyway?!

      You had me right up until you said the government should be using taxes to pay for medical care.

    I hope those 63 million Obama voters are happy. Too bad they had to drag everyone else down with them.

      Sometimes this is what it takes for a person to realize what is happening, it has to hit them personally before they care.

    If the pieces fall into place as intended in the Obama cosmic plan all those haters of the greatest country and greatest healthcare system this world had ever experienced will have nothing to hate or despise other then their myopic selves once they become denizens of the gulags. We have met the enemy and they are us- Pogo

      By the time they realize what is going on it will be too late to fight back.
