Now that Obamacare is sure to stay the law of the land, business are beginning to lay off workers, and turn full timers into part timers. The Obamacare law requires that workers who work full time, which in the language of the law is 30 hours, receive employer health insurance, or the employer pay a fine.
People who were doing 40 hours, are going to be working 25-29. The working people of the USA are already hurting, and the government is pushing businesses to cut their hours!
If you didn't have health coverage before, you're not going to have it now, and good luck scraping together the money for private coverage after your hours are cut. This is going to push lots of people who were barely making it, over the edge.
The democrats will have to own (politically) this economy for the next 4 years. I wonder how well the democrats will do in 2014, and 2016. Likely they will try to get by with more entitlements. That's how it works, right? Liberals give out entitlement, entitlement harms economy, liberals blame business, liberals give out more entitlements; it just goes on forever.
Good intentions can't bake a cake, and they sure as hell can't run a country. To run a country you have to understand how it all works, and the progressives just don't understand markets.
A prime example of liberal ignorance are those who shout "price gouging!" when petrol prices go up during a disaster.
Here is Ron Paul, to set them straight
