As it is, this little laggard of a deliverable is certainly…awkward.
ObamaCare in Trouble? Exchange provision delayed, as lawmakers push to repeal another
Parts of ObamaCare are starting to fray, even before full implementation.
The Obama administration now says a special system of exchanges designed to make it easier for small businesses to provide insurance will be delayed an entire year — to 2015.
“Lots of small businesses struggle with providing insurance for their workers so this was supposed to facilitate it and make it easier for small business to do this,” said Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “It was a huge portion of the sale job. When they passed the law in 2010 there were many senators and members of Congress who were saying ‘I am doing this because it’s going to help small businesses.’”
The exchanges were designed to give workers a range of choices supported by dollars from their employers. But now they will have only one choice until 2015, which could mean they can’t shop for insurance that includes their current providers.
Capretta said the administration is “way” behind schedule.
So you might not get to keep your current insurance (AS PROMISED), even before they have anything to replace it with that you might (or might not) prefer. Way to go, El Presidento!
I found myself nodding in agreement with Jim Geraghty’s Morning Jolt assertion the other day ~ Obama wasn’t frogmarched out of office for the simple fact that the horrible, miserable, ill-considered, unimplementable provisions of his monstrosity of a Health Care takeover had yet to kick-in, and start to severely discomfit the very people who had bought into and voted for him, ergo, IT. So, no harm, no foul, check the box for Barack.
NOW, some months after his little paw has safely made it in the air to assume the office yet again, the PRICE we are all paying for the money-for-nothing types is starting to come into focus and the mewling is beginning. Oh, STOP, Juicy Couture, making your employees part-timers, you brutes! NEWSFLASH, girlfriends! You’re on the ass-end of the trend:
Part-Time Workforce Surges Ahead Of ObamaCare Mandate: Gallup
The shift to part-time work accelerated in February ahead of a key, midyear ObamaCare deadline, Gallup reported on Monday.
Gallup’s survey found that the percentage of part-time workers as a share of the overall labor force surged to 20.6%, the highest level in data going back to the start of 2010 — just as the employment recovery began.
The report provides the most dramatic evidence yet of the impact the 2010 health law is now beginning to have on employers of modest-wage workers and — even more importantly — on their workers.
Catch that? “In FEBRUARY”? And who already had secured a second shot at his gig? Yeah. I like this quote, too ~ goes to my earlier post:
“Policymakers should not be misled by the surge in part-time jobs in early 2013,” noted Gallup Chief Economist Dennis Jacobe. “The economic reality is that the U.S. job situation worsened in February.“
So your hours are cut to part-time, you could very well lose what insurance you have right now, leaving NO access to any insurance for the forseable future because the guy you voted for doesn’t have a plan yet, and the plan he and his botoxed witch sister passed lets all this happen FIRST, without making sure you’re covered in the meantime.
But they had to pass it to find that out. Let the pissing and mewling begin.
