I keep hearing more and more stories of workers getting their hours cut and layoffs pending as a result of Obamacare. I wonder if he is going to dance around how he is going to fix that, blame others, or if he is just going to ignore it altogether.

And if you check you'll find out it was companies who offered no health ins coverage anyway. Papa Johns like others would rather cut hours or lay off rather than charge a little more for their product.In this case it was 14 cents more/pizza

The avg. inc. for wal-mart empl. is around 16000/yr. Little or no ins. and almost qualify for food stamps.
guess whose paying for the well fare benefits ?

Maybe thats why the rich pay most of the fed ,income taxes.
Because of all the people who don't make enough to pay any.
The rich control 93% of the wealth in this country,
Maybe they should pay all the taxes.

ladybug, does it surprise you that corporate America is responding in this fashion to Obamacare? Would you at least agree with me that, given the way big business has been run in this country for the last 100+ years, that such a reaction would be foreseeable to something such as Obamacare?

!st of all it's not corporate america.
Most large co.offer heathcare as an incentive to get good employees.
OK Then what is the answer to rising healthcare costs ?
Everytime one of those so called 50 million without coverage goes to the hospital,emergencie room or dr.the ost get passed along to those who have insurance.in increased premiums.
Even little Fresh Mark just gave their employees a token raise ,and i think their healthcre benefits are decent.

So what your saying is.Because papa Johns ,McDonalds ,Buger King,Wendys, to name a few won't increase their prices a tad,we end up picking up the costs in premium increases,

I worked all my life trying to do things the right way,never abusing my benefits,
Yet here i am even in retirement covering everyone else ass witn no solutions but bickering and finger pointing from the people who get paid to resolve these issues.
Supossidily Papa Johns has 16400 workers.
They certainly don't make enough to buy insurance ,little alone have enough to live on.
Who pays for them ?

ladybug...go to the emergency room and see who is there and what for. In haste to get a bill that would add political points, we have a flawed healthcare bill that has harmed our healthcare and added to it's cost. It's just that simple.
Beyond that subject, this President has very few successes to tell us about and I will not subject myself to more lies.
"So what your saying is.Because papa Johns ,McDonalds ,Buger King,Wendys, to name a few won't increase their prices a tad,we end up picking up the costs in premium increases,"
Either way, we pick up the cost. Whether it comes in the form of a direct tax or it comes in the form of a cost passed on to the consumer. I'm not necessarily opposed to a nationalized healthcare system but Obamacare itself is a train wreck.

Just to be clear, I would be in favor of a nationalized healthcare system ONLY if it covered EVERYONE FAIRLY and it did NOT EXCEED the cost of our pre-Obamacare system. Obamacare will accomplish neither.

Nationalized healthcare could be beneficial to the economy if corporate America realizes that with the removal of the expectation that they provide healthcare insurance that there would be a an expectation that they increase wages. The people would have to pay an additional healthcare tax but that would be in lieu of current premiums paid and could actually be offset by wage increases.
Can it be done? Yes, but there is a problem...It is a dual edged sword. It can be done and everyone could benefit, but we would be relying on the federal government to run it. So, under the current bloated federal system, we pretty much know how it will turn out.
Try figuring it out on your own once NS.
You have to spring.
So, under the current bloated federal system, we pretty much know how it will turn out.
Yep, and we can know up front that it will get worse. The federal government is supposed to protect the American people and leave everything else to States, local governments and the people...they are way beyond that!

ladybug, even ultra liberals don't agree with you on that...why would you even post such a statement?
2 Agrees | 1 Disagrees | Report Abuse »
Go get a hand full of paper towels and tell someone who cares,
I watch this stuff everyday and they would all rather play the blame game.
Agree on what ?
What i'm saying. Papa Johns could raise the price of their pizza 14 cents .
This would then provide their employees with health insurance,which in turn help lower our premium in the long run.

I'm not sure how this makes sense. We will simply take the private sector insurance industry, where wages and benefits are controlled by the market, and turn it over to a federal bureaucracy with wages and benefits controlled by a public union.
As always the government will solve any problems that arise by throwing money at them. You will pay more and more 'healthcare' tax till anything extra that you may receive from your employer, because they don't have to deal with it, will soon be consumed just for healthcare. What is the point?
