    Confirmed: Obamacare Is Already Killing Jobs – Thank You Democrats (Video)​

    You thought the last four year were disastrous?
    Wait until Obamacare hits. It’s already forcing companies to cut jobs and hours.


    It’s now clear that Obamacare is already forcing businesses to cut employees and employee hours in order to comply to the law.

    Thank you Democrats.
    The National Review ( Obamacare?s Job-Killer - Jillian Kay Melchior - National Review Online )has more on Obamacare’s job-killing mandate.


    American manufacturers are already struggling to recover, never mind expand. In that context, the Obama health law’s employer mandate proves especially counterproductive.

    The Census Bureau doesn’t calculate how many manufacturing firms are near the 50-employee threshold. But its numbers do show that the majority of them are small enough that the employer mandate may be a significant problem. Of America’s total 258,662 manufacturing companies, 197,701 had fewer than 20 employees in 2010, around the time when hiring growth picked up. Another 46,005 had between 20 and 99 employees.

    And it doesn’t matter that most manufacturers already provide health care: The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) estimates that 97 percent of its members already do so. Employers’ plans must cover at least 60 percent of employees’ average health expenses, and workers can’t contribute more than 9.5 percent of their family income, or the fees kick in anyway. That $2,000-per-employee penalty falls on top of the stiff taxes, trade barriers, and environmental limitations that manufacturers already have to contend with.

    That's fine, eventually cutting their own throats will become more apparent to them.

    Didn't see any references to temps in the NRO article, but it seems likely Obamacare increases the velocity of the destruction of the middle class by making it more desirable for corporations to churn temps than take on more than skeleton crews of full time line workers. To the extent jobs can be dumbed down through LEAN and other employee buy-in efficiency processes, the road ahead for blue collar America looks bleak indeed.

    In other words Obamacare could be the final blow against the blue collar middle class, making blue collar labor little more than chattel traded back and forth between government programs and cheapskate corporate paychecks.

    Hard to see any socialist elements to it in terms of benefits for workers. Corporations complain, but Fortune 200 corporations are finally achieving the objectives Reagan set out and Clinton took to the hoop in the 1990s with Phil Gramm's help. The US workforce is on its knees thanks to thirty years of betrayal orchestrated by the financial services sector and executed by every president since Carter including so-called liberals Clinton and Obama.

    Obamacare is in fact more about what global corporations want (cheap, desperate labor and government handouts in down time) than small business or labor wants (dependable high skill labor). It is a sort of noir humor element listening to weirdo nutballs like Jowls Hannity and Pigboy Limbaugh rail against what their Fortune 200 program sponsors lobbied for like crazy behind the scenes.

    And so it goes.

    Find a new mantra. Obamacare isn't going away, no matter how many wet dreams you Nutter's have about it. You made your case against it in November and the American People decided to keep it.

    Maobamacare is doing exactly what it was intended to do, make employer based health insurance untenable and force everyone into a single payer system. Have you noticed, we no longer discuss insurance, it's all about care now.

    Well, now, that is good news for people who don't want jobs. The gubmint will take care of us, ya know.

    Love the new argument from the left. There is no defending that piece of shit legislation, so now they just say it's the law of the land and we better accept it. Insist that congress fix it, they say. Yea, right. The drafters of the socialist legislation carefully wrote it to be exactly what they wanted- oppressive taxation and a transfer of more power from the people to the regime. They don't think it's broken, so why will they listen to us when we tell them to fix it?

    The whole reason it was written and shoved through is because they want more of our money to redistribute, more say in how we live (and die) and they will get another wish, which is population control.

    I have no problem with that. Why we insist on imposing the onus of health insurance on the employer is beyond me. Just another layer in an already bureaucratic-heavy system.

    Maybe Obamacare has been the Dems plan to segue to single payer one day all along?

    Yep, that's right. It's not going away.

    Do you WANT to help fix it, or would you rather just obsess about it?

    Carefully? LOL It was drafted by committee!

    Have you read it? I have...all of it.


    Broken? No. Perfect? No. It needs some effort to make it better. Wanna join in, or would you rather stay on the sidelines and bitch? (Lemme guess......)

    Prove it. Betcha can't.
