ObamaCare goodness continues

Home Depot Inc. (HD), the world’s largest home improvement retailer, plans to end medical coverage for about 20,000 part-time employees and direct them to government-sponsored exchanges scheduled to open next month as companies revamp benefits to fit the U.S. Affordable Care Act.

Employees with fewer than 30 hours a week will no longer be offered limited liability medical coverage, Stephen Holmes, a spokesman, said today by telephone. About 5 percent of Atlanta-based Home Depot’s 340,000 employees are enrolled in that plan.

Its funny watching Obama lovers preach the same old rhetoric he does in that corporations are the bad guys because they are back being profitable while the middle class keeps sinking. You'd think at some point Obama idiots would wake up and see the biggest attacker of the middle class is Obama himself.

They could have maximized profits and reduced expenses before--when it wasn't mandated. For a company already offering a plan, the mandate just mandates something that they were already doing.

We need more facts to back up the arguments. For example, how much is the current part-time Home Depot employees paying for their limited insurance plan? And how much will be the cost when they switch to the exchange with the similar coverage?

Corporations weren't allowed to maximize profits before Obamacare?

Letting corporations maximize profits is a bad thing?

Why do you think companies are dropping their healthcare plans?

If the liar in chief would have been upfront on what kind of a disaster this was going to be it wouldn't have passed. Companies dropping healthcare just for the bottom line is not an unforseen consequence. In many cases less coverage at higher cost to the employees.

The Obama attack on the middle class continues.

I think the better question is why do YOU think companies are dropping coverage for some part time workers?

I'll give you a hint, its not because they previously weren't allowed to as you said.

Why don't you provide an actual example. Do you understand that they could have dropped health care prior to Obamacare and paid a penalty of $0? Yet, they didn't. So now that dropping it would cost them a $2000 penalty, you think they are MORE LIKELY to drop it? I'm talking about full-time employees here. For most limited plans available to part-timers, they are better off going to the exchanges.

The future of this country, your children, is working 3 to 4 dead end part time jobs with no mobility, benefits or possibility of a pay raise. Also just wait until the TPP passes! That's the final nail in the coffin for us commoners.
