    people were warned this would happen. all the supporters of this should be sending apologizes to all the employees who will be on the unemployment line. will these peopel be counted on the UE number or just ignored as people who should be working but due to technical problems their job is just relocated.

    .

    Health insurance shouldn't be tied to employment in the first place.

    Even though this may actually be "Obamacare" prompted, cutting employees to part time to avoid paying benefits is nothing new - look to Walmart and Grocery Stores for examples.

    It's no longer health insurance, it's health care. Insurance is where people pool resources to protect against the possibility of future risk. Now that existing conditions are covered it no longer meets the definition of insurance, it's just care, and will be much more expensive. Employers can't afford it and stay competative, especially in low a margin business like food.

    We already have a doctor shortage. We've had one long before we elected Obama.
