Skip to comments.ObamaCare Fallout: Walmart Ends Insurance For New Hires
Posted on 12/01/2012 12:14:56 PM PST by george76
And so the government takeover of our health care system begins:
Walmart, the nations largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week..
By making the fine for not providing health care cheaper than providing health care, this was always the plan: to encourage employers to send us to the government.
Remember how Obama's big ObamaCare sell was, "You get to keep the health insurance you have"?
It was all a lie, a hustle, a con, a ruse

How can this be? I thought WM doesn’t offer benefits? /IFCW
Walmart has been ramping down it’s employee benefits for years, making them nearly worthless.
But you’re correct, they have now just totally eliminated benefits for the private sector schmucks, like so many other big corps have been doing for the past 15 years.
I just can’t wait until people start getting their health care insurance bills at the end of January.
not a surprise
It makes no economic sense anymore for retail-level businesses to hire people full time or provide health insurance.
From Red Cross/Blue Shield to welfare. What a bargin. Just exactly what Obamagabe and his band of socialists want. Welcome to the Socialist States of America.
It'll be a honking hoot...Like Walmart, most employers are cutting hours for many years now avoid the ever escalating big med costs.
Can't wait to see the average Walmart 20 hour per week employee now having to pay for medical benefits, when it costs them about 70 bucks just to fill their tanks to get to work and back....Oh yeah!
On their off days they can beg for food and rent money.
people have already been getting messages about higher premiums and letters from their doctors saying they no longer accept Medicare..
Just the first step. The second is a massive wave of automation for retailers. Self checkout scanners don’t need health care.
20 hours a week and still get food stamps
what a world
But those that voted for this jerk and have no idea what’s coming they can eat it.
This has been the trend for over 15 years. Big med and big insurance have been jacking their rates up through the roof for well over a decade now.
All part of Obama’s plan. Employers end coverage and look like the bad guys. It’s the path to single payer healthcare.
20 hours a week a Walmart and having now having to pay for health insurance... How else would they eat?
For Christmas, if possible, I suggest these people scrap together a few dollars and exchange canned food for gifts.
Send a canned a SPAM to your favorite liberal for Christmas, gift wrapped of course.
Come on...Lets be honest...This cheet has been happening for over 15 years now...And was getting worse each year....It's no secret.
The msm has been quiet on Walmart lately. Guess this will get them revved up again and we’ll see nothing but slams against the company the next 6 months.
The real traves ty in ObamaCare is that most of your large, Multi-National companies support ObamaCare...even as they lament about it. The fine will always be cheaper than the coverage
Wal-Mart, once cheerleaded by many Free Trader Communist Globalists....is pretty much a liberal organization.
Health insurance is your individual responsibility, not your employer’s. Do you demand car insurance from your employer? Do you demand home insurance from your employer? So, why is this health insurance any different? Your health, your responsibility. The employer involvement was gateway to communism, which has now been realized with the full government involvement.
What about workers comp? Since it benefits employees, should the employees pay the premiums on that too?
