It’s been quite a week for ObamaCare, and we’re not even to the end of it yet. First we find out that the White House missed half of the statutory deadlines in the bill and still has almost half of them left unaccomplished. Next, UPS canceled spousal coverage because of the ACA, which will save it $60 million in costs, and CNBC described how employees might start petitioning their bosses to drop health insurance in order to score taxpayer-funded subsidies. The AFL-CIO in Nevada finally discovered what a bad deal they’re getting, and Gallup confirmed that the more people know about ObamaCare, the less they like it.

Heck, even the Department of Defense employees are part time now. Only Obama could “accomplish” that.
RE: Heck, even the Department of Defense employees are part time now.
I think that was the Obama plan all along. Obama DISLIKES spending on defense.
Are the Republicans in the house really going to let this go through? It’s one story after another regarding companies cutting hours or cutting benefits in some form or another. Just heard a report that Atlanta based Delta Airlines reported that the implementation of Obamacare would cost the airline over $100mm. Folks that’s insane. This on the heels of UPS announcing it was curtailing the benefits of 15,000 employee’s spouses. And BAMBAM is out touring the country . . . again.
Hey Marilyn, it’s an epidemic in the real world. Pay attention to someone other than the MSM or your “sort of a God.”
Those silly Democrats will fall for anything as long as it’s in the form of a handout.
The problem is there is no real way to “defund” ObamaCare. It is almost ALL mandatory spending. All the House can do is vote (for the 35th time or so) to stop the implementation costs, which the Senate will never even bring up for a vote and Obama would never sign. All this talk is boob bait for the bubbahs. Entitlements are mandatory spending. Congrats to the Takers.
