    That's a different measure. I know some for example working two part time jobs for he same place. She works more than 40 hours, but is part time. An increase in hours, but not benefits or overtime.

    Yes they were skyrocketing. No doubt they were rising much faster than general inflation; or was inflation more than we were told?

    The law does nothing to the insurance companies except force them to include the people they've told they can't afford to serve
    in the past - a burden they will have to put some where - I'm guessing the poor people now paying the government the penalty
    for working part time will be enough to offset that - right? Oh wait - guess not - so they have to get the money some where after
    all they need that evil 4 or 5% gross profit they make.

    The number of people working part time for economic reasons has been going down since 2009 also.

    whatever is the best fit for us. i find it difficult to imagine that an essential service with inelastic demand will ever be most efficiently delivered by three levels of for-profit entitities, but if there's some way to make it work, it would beat the insane system we have now.

    mostly, i'd like to see us do a thorough study of every other first world health care system, and then pick the best parts of each one.

    To the best of my knowledge the employer is breaking the law.

    It was a republican plan. I support tying to improve it. A public option would be better, and a two tiered single payer system better yet.

    Since Obama took over? Perhaps due to layoffs during he recession?

    Can't say, just know what is.

    Sadly after this year, you may be right....I guess the Cloward/Piven strategy works after all eh?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
