    More examples of how Obamacare is killing jobs in both the private and public sector. Whether it's a business or a city, those in the know are doing what they need to do in order to survive. Stryker Corp. has always supported Democrats. I bet they are regretting that now.

    If they kept 59 part time employees at 30+ hours a week, it could cost the city $850,000 a year because of Obamacare. That is an example of how much that oppressive bill will cost people. Companies are starting to layoff and reduce employee hours now because once the disasterous law goes into effect, they will look at the history of hours worked and go by that to determine how much companies pay. So, they are doing this in advance to avoid going bankrupt.

    These people are full of it, medical and insurance costs were on a ruinous rise before anyone did a thing and were a leading cause of layoffs and terminations, if special interests had not insisted we stick to the employer provided group coverage scam we have always had then perhaps so many employers would not find themselves still in a position of being on the hook for insurance costs.

    If the people we elected don't come up with any better ideas we'll end up with single payer in the next 15 years.

    You once again show us how stupid you are. Yes costs were on the rise before the bill, but now they have risen even faster, and business have the added cost of having to Insure more people. Obamacare has done, and will do, NOTHING to lower costs.

    It and you are both Epic Fails.

    A cost of $850,000 for 59 employees??? Yikes, that is just shameful. Businesses and cities cannot survive this, so watch for unemployment levels to reach astronomical levels. Obamacare is not lowering medical costs. Millions will remain uninsured. There is no improvement at all, in fact just the opposite. Costs rising, care will be doled out. Doctors talking about quitting the profession and government panels calling the shots. It will cost trillions and everything is going to shit. Obama is already talking about bringing foreign doctors in to take the place of those who quit since their income will be capped. Some countries don't have the same standards in medical training and I've met some foreign doctors in the military clinics. It was a nightmare.

    Seems the only improvement, in the eyes of the liberal politicians, is that they have more power and control over us, they are stealing trillions from the people so they can run our lives, they have access to our bank accounts and they say who lives and dies.

    And some people cheer this on. Just amazing.

    Maybe if the right would stop running around in circles and screaming, "OMG! OBAMACARE!" and sit down to talk about it, we might be able to fix what's wrong with it.

    The fact is that The People voted for Obama, knowing fully well that a vote for him was a vote for Obamacare, yet the GOP continues to act is if that didn't happen, preferring instead to keep on blathering the same "kill it" nonsense which cost them the election.

    Obamacare is here to stay, folks. It's not going away. It has things in it which need to be fixed, so either get involved or shut the hell up about it.
