    OK, a few things I know

    30 hours = FTE so @ $1.50/hr will be saved by keeping hours under 30 hours

    that means a lot of workers will take about a $8K hit and it will be among those least able to afford it. but what will that do to state and local taxes? Migration patterns? Anyone got a clue?

    its like asking what will socialism do. Since its based on monopolistic government liberal guessing rather than on millions of individual Republican capitalist choices, it will introduce huge soviet inefficiencies into the economy.

    Edward & William, some medium and large corporations may net gain or lose if they decide to circumvent the Affordable ccare Act by reducing their full timers and increasing their part timers.
    They may lose some critical and/or gernerally many of their employees who choose to work for other enterprises that act otherwise. Rates of employee turnover are among enterprises’ cost factors.

    Because so many enterprises had (prior to the introduction of healthcare insurance serious congressional consideration), already eliminated or severely reduced financial support for healthcare insurance, this act will (I believe) of aggregate benefit to USA wage and salary earners. There is certainly an unfulfilled need for such insurance.

    If sufficient medium and large corporations act in the manner you suggest, it may be of net benefit to the many small enterprises that cannot provide full time employment but need part timers. Their clients’ almost all require servicing within the same short windows of time.
    If many major and medium corporations act in the manner you suggest, this act will reduce those enterprises costs, facilitate more reliable services and increase clients’ satisfaction at lesser prices.

    I suppose you’ve been told to beware of what you wish for. I suggest you also should reconsider what you wish to avoid; it may actually be preferable to what you now have.

    Within a democratic republic with a free competitive economy, the voters hopefully make the correct choices and regardless of those choices entrepreneurs adjust to their own determinations of their best interests. Time and providence evaluates those choices.

    Respectfully, Supposn

    And, those making the wild claims may want to put a link or two to prove their claims. I have seen nothing in the area of non-partial sources saying such. But in the con web site area, that is the ongoing buzz.

    For most people on this board Obamacare will be zero plus. What I find bizarre is that probable victims are part of the Democratic base and it kicks off at the start of the mid-term election 1/1/14. Even if the bill as written were pluperfect the teething problems are going to be huge.

    1) there is no cost savings it seems in BO care because it is very stupid and very liberal


    2) to cuts costs by 60% all you'd do is make all providers post their prices and give every person a voucher for $3600.

    Case closed but because liberals lack the IQ to understand capitalism it won't happen.
