Corporate whoring would be the movement to eliminate the ACA as I have already explained in this thread. Large companies had a built in competitive advantage before the ACA. They want it back, and they have contributed massive amounts of money to the Republican party in order to make that happen.
Show the bill
What bill are you speaking of?
You said there was bipartisan support.
Where was the bill?
There was, but Dems decided to purchase votes by taking money away from workers and gifting it to lazy lard ass mooching deadbeats with Obamacare. Tissue?
They didn't do it to purchase votes. Did you forget they got wiped out in 2010? They did it to make sure the campaign donations would continue to roll in.
It was wealth redistribution plain and simple.
It was corporate whoring.
Tell me about this competitive advantage.
Walmart insures hundreds of thousands of workers. The health care risk of those workers is diversified among those hundreds of thousands of workers. An independent grocery store only insures a couple dozen workers. The health care risk of those workers is only diversified among those couple dozen. Walmart ends up paying significantly less for health insurance for their employees than small businesses. A group insurance plan is exactly that, insurance for the "group". Walmart has the largest group in the country. Meanwhile, an independent operator has a much smaller group and much less risk diversification opportunties.
Wal Mart doesn't have hundreds of thousands full time workers.
Want to try again?
They have 2.2 million workers.
Wal-Mart Stores Number of Employees is currently at 2.3 M. Number of Employees shows the total number of permanent full time and part time employees working for a given Wal-Mart Stores and processed through its payroll.
Your source said 30,000 part time workers would lose their health insurance. It did not say it was dropping health insurance for all part time workers, only those that work less than 30 hours a week. Most work four eight hour days. And that in no way negates my contention, that Walmart has the largest health insurance pool. They insure over a million associates in the US alone.
