    Yeah guys, wake up! There is absolutely nothing attractive about absolute control! It's in mans nature to run from anything that gives them power over other people!

    Oh yeah, did you provide them with medical and dental before this? Even the part-timers?

    Medical, Dental, vision, free ice cream, and before they go home each night he throws wads of cash in the air and lets them take home whatever they can catch.

    A meaningful answer would add more value than your amusing quip. I assure you that the government has plenty of control already but I don't see why 29 hour weeks would make them more "powerful".

    likely for the same reason many progressives think everyone that disagrees with them are, as well. Ideology gets funny like that when it steps in for reality

    The more people believe they need government assistance the more people vote Democrat.

    Look how inept they are. That's why you have these endless scandals. This is incompetence, not some insidious plot. Sure, there are wheels within the wheels but I doubt a 29 hour workweek was in the master plan.
    That's what gets me about most conspiracy theories: they demand a level of competence in an elected govt that most of us could only hope for

    There's an increased liklihood that those who only have 29hr a week employment will depend upon government services. It's much harder to oppose the critters and what they are doing while you're receiving services from them "gratis". Make too much noise and they cut you off.

    Here is what I see and I hope I'm responding to everyone.

    I lean toward Dr. Chuckle's comment because I think that we are ascribing far too much credit and credibility to the concept of a grand scheme to take over America. Look at what a bunch of ****ups these people are. So, this idea of long term thinking about how to impoverish everyone so they are on your payroll is way over their heads. Don't believe me? Then explain Fast & Furious and Benghazi which were demonstrations of ineptitude on a near cosmic scale. And right now - look at Syria - proof positive that these idiots are clueless.

    Anybody working a 29 hour job is somebody who wouldn't make much at a 40 hour job. These aren't engineers, they're burger flippers. Everyone I know works full time, makes good money (albeit without recent raises) and gers insurance. Not just insurance but Cadillac insurance (which is now creating a problem of its own). Oh, and they vote Democrat - although like myself they are terribly disappointed in Obama and wish there were a viable alternative.

    As far as "too much noise and they cut you off", do you actually believe that? Do you think they will review this board (or other public place) and go "hey, you, mother****er, you criticized the King and you won't get any more food stamps"? Highly unlikely.

    Using Occam's Razor, I see brute incompetence. 2500 pages of favors, confusion and payoffs and none of these morons thought to make part time the traditional 20 hours? Now, of course, I could be wrong. They may have a long term plot to take over America and appoint Obama King For Life. But - that seems more like Sci-Fi than reality.

    I'll consider it if Nancy Pelosi comes over to my house and explains all 2,409 pages (http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/BILLS-1...11hr3590pp.pdf) in detail.
    If Obamacare comes up with a solid medical plan for people with wages over $250K and a monthly charge of under $1K for the plan; I would very seriously consider buying it. Right now I pay for United Healthcare to the tune of about $880/month; but you don't get rich spending frivolously and if Obama Bin Biden can beat United Healthcare I am definitely down with that. I'd also appreciate it if Obama can make something called ObamaPutt. I would love a new Harley or Indian for under $15K (with sidecar, because I'm thinking that could be very cool).
