    ObamaCare Puts Big Dent in Hiring

    ObamaCare’s implementation is causing many employers across the country to think twice about hiring as they consider the impact of its rules and regulations.

    More than 3,500 pages of regulations have been penned since the law passed... and their impact is already being felt.

    One of the companies Alexander spoke with told him that the regulatory changes that followed ObamaCare’s passage ate all of its profits from last year, while another company said it slashed its workforce from 90 employees down to 70 per store.

    Businesses are uncertain about the costs and the regulations... many are finding it is cheaper to hire part-time workers to get around having to offer health insurance...

    “The overall regulatory burden falls hard on small businesses that have seen their health care premiums increase by more than 10% under ObamaCare,”... costs are expected to increase further in 2014 once the employer mandate takes effect in 2014.

    According to Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates, employers will likely face nearly $52 billion in tax penalties between 2014 and 2019, which... will “reduce business growth and hiring.”

    The same CBO report found that approximately 650,000 mainly lower-paid and lower-skilled workers could find themselves out of a job as a result of the health care law’s implementation during the second half of the decade.


    Pitts sees particular problems for smaller businesses that will be hit harder by the law’s regulatory bite than larger business that are flush with cash. “I believe you can’t put a mandate on a business like ours unless you know that an industry can actually pay for it, and without a doubt, this industry cannot pay for it,” Scott Womack, who owns 11 IHOP restaurants in the Midwest... “This legislation is going to cost anywhere from $7,000 to 10,000 per employee. … We’re going to have to take drastic actions to trim employees' hours down, to trim services, look at cutting a lot of things that we pay for now to make room for this.”

    The problem isn't socialist legislation, the problem is stupid legislation. Socialist legislation would have removed the burden of providing health care from businesses altogether.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    Yeah... social engineering in our Medical Services... government dictating who should buy what, who should provide what, who should pay for what, who will be subsidized for what... is stupid.

    It would be nice if they left the free market sort these things out. It's more flexible, and it's in the interest of consumers... as quality would both improve, and costs would be lower.

    That's what Pelosi said...

    Pelosi: ObamaCare to Create Millions of Jobs - Perspective - PatriotPost.US
    "Four million jobs will be created by the legislation when it is fully in effect. ... [T]his year, the biggest growth in jobs in our economy has been in health care jobs." --House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), repeating a dubious claim

    Earlier this year, Congressional Budget Office Director Doug Elmendorf estimated that ObamaCare will cost 800,000 jobs.

    Well, straw men and sarcasm definitely don't create jobs.

    That wasn't a strawman. You know very well Nancy Pelosi said those things - do you really want me to whip out the quotes and links to them? No I didn't think so.

    Regarding sarcasm... sometimes we have to use the tools that are most effective. Facts certainly don't appear effective... maybe John Stewart has it right. Make fun of people and criticize them into submission. It's worth a shot.

    There are a few things I question about this report, specifically because it comes from a website that in no way, shape, or form would never write a positive story about the healthcare bill.

    First it talks about how apparently this senator met with a bunch of "chain restaurants" and one of them said it ate into "all of their profits". I find that highly questionable.

    Next a guy claims that he went from 90 to 70 employees at one of his fast food stores. So perhaps this guy just has the busiest ****ing McDonalds in the world, but that would mean that every single shift he had at least 30 employees at a time, and now he "only" has 23-24 per shift? I have never worked at a McDonalds but if I had to guess, there is a manager, 2 on cash, 2 on drive thru, 4 on drive thru making food, 4 on in the store making food, 1 person doing fries, a clean up person, another manager, and then there would be a couple that just I guess stand around or prepare food?

    The rest of this is rhetoric, hearsay, and a bunch of Republicans and Republican funded organizations claiming that the health care act is killing America. Sorry, unimpressed.

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    High on rhetoric low on facts.

    Hey, I've talked to 3 business owners who said that they will be hiring people because of the healthcare reform. They'd hire even more if their were a single-payer option. Don't you just love how unsubstantiated hearsay works?
