Small business - the backbone of the American economy - apparently doesn't like Obamacare very much.

Washington Examiner:

Despite the administration's controversial decision to delay forcing companies to join Obamacare for a year, three-quarters of small businesses are still making plans to duck the costly law by firing workers, reducing hours of full-time staff, or shift many to part-time, according to a sobering survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

"Small businesses expect the requirement to negatively impact their employees. Twenty-seven percent say they will cut hours to reduce full time employees, 24 percent will reduce hiring, and 23 percent plan to replace full time employees with part-time workers to avoid triggering the mandate," said the Chamber business survey provided to Secrets.

Under Obamacare, just 30 hours -- not the nationally recognized 40 hours -- is considered full-time. Companies with 50 full-time workers or more are required to provide health care, or pay a fine.

I don't like Obamacare at all!!

Puppet Pelosi told them to "pass the bill then we can read what is in it."  And they were dumbassed enough to vote for it.  This speaks volumes on the representatives who would vote something in like this assinine oblameamuslimcare insurance.  May we ask if Obamacare covers the emergency surgery on being decapitated by a Muslim?

 

  "WE ARE FIVE DAYS AWAY FROM FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORMING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!".....Barack Obama....January 15, 2009.

 

    LOOKS LIKE HE MEANT IT FOLKS!  (He is now bringing to us a Karl Marx style Socialist, Communist Utopia...where everyone is promised that they will have everything want and that they will live happily ever after.....they can even keep their own doctors and health insurance plans if they like them!)

 

JUST REMEMBER THIS......THE AMERICAN SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST PARTY (formerly known as the Democratic Party) LIVES ON LIES BECAUSE IF IT TOLD THE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT IT PLANS FOR AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE........THEY COULD NEVER WIN AN ELECTION!

Make them delay it until the year 2556

Every time politicians force things on a free people, they're no longer free.

You mean like the thousands of "gun control" laws that they pass? The "laws" that merely make an "honest citizen" into a criminal, by their definition?

The US taxpayers cannot afford to fund this travesty.  The average US household cannot afford the increases on their insurance premiums, and a poor person who has no insurance whatsoever CANNOT AFFORD TO BE FORCED TO SPEND MONEY THAT THEY DON'T HAVE ON IT!!!!!

Social Security- operating in the red. medicare;operating in the Red. medicaid; operating in the red. Obama and the democrats solution; introduce another monster program that as to be feed each month with tax payer dollars. does anyone else see a problem ?

This is part of Obama's grand scheme to destroy America.  Hell is saving a place for him right next to his muslim terrorist friends.

I CAN'T WAIT TILL JANUARY WHEN THIS STUPID LAW TOTALLY BLOWS UP IN THEIR FACES . TRAIN WRECK , INDEED !

All businesses should just shut down untill obummer and his regime are gone.

Good ! Dump it all.

TRUMP ->  WHY DOES ANTIFA NEVER ATTACK BIKERS FOR TRUMP?

President insults leftists during social media summit

The president made reference to the Antifa attack on gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo in Portland last month.

“Do you ever notice they pick on certain people?” asked Trump.

"Did you ever notice they don't come after Bikers For  Trump?"@realDonaldTrump calls out ANTIFA for the wussies that they are.

“He would tell you he’s not the toughest person physically in the world – they don’t go after Bikers For Trump, you ever notice that, they don’t go after our construction workers who love us, they don’t go after the police,” he added.

Trump went on to further insult far-leftists, joking, “They live in the basement of their mom’s home,” while asserting that they all had skinny arms.

“But they have the black masks on and they have sticks, they hit people in the face, in the head.”

“But you ever notice Antifa’s never there when we have a bikers rally….they’re never around, they’re always there when you have a single guy protesting in front of a school,” said Trump.

Trump then made reference to his administration’s move to withdraw federal funding from educational institutions that don’t allow free speech on campus.
