    When the progressive yahoos were screaming and whining about Walmart, I was telling them they gave their workers full time work and insurance...which is more than most companies.

    I also said they'd lose both when marxocare went into effect.

    2/3 of the Walmart employees idiotically voted for Obama and obamacare too, the morons. People who typically could not get full time employment ANYWHERE else on the face of the earth...the disabled, elderly...people with criminal records and disabilities that make them completely unemployable elsewhere, Walmart has traditionally taken in, trained, and provided with insurance. Many of those, newly armed with a work history and some marketable skills, even go on to better jobs, or get moved up the ladder within the company.

    Not anymore.

    You reap what you sow.

    Congratulations, liberals. This is exactly what you voted for.

    Wally Mart and other large companies have been doing that with part-time workers long before the Affordable Care Act passed. But do go ahead and pretend that is why they are doing it now.
