People are so uninformed about "Obamacare". Groups will drop health benefits when they figure out that the "penalty" will be much less out of their pockets than the monthly premiums or they will drop employees under 30 hours per week and avoid it all together! Then everyone will get to choose from 3 lovely plans (federally mandated) ONLINE and get lousy coverage!! Any employer who does keep group health intact will then realize that the plan they have for their employees is well ABOVE what the federal government mandates and will lower the coverage to the bottom choice of those 3 lovely plans and again the coverage will be WORTHLESS!! Everyone will be paying out the you know what to have a $5,000 deductible, low co-insurance plan to get the lowest premium, but by God we will ALL have healthcare or pay the price! Guess what...we will be PAYING THE PRICE REGARDLESS!! And believe me, insurance carriers aren't stupid...they are already looking at ways to pass this HEALTHCARE FOR ALL right on down to the consumer!! Community hospitals and small-town providers will go under! Also, as a side note...people don't understand that EACH state can decide whether or NOT to expand Medicaid! I'm a licensed healthcare professional...I have sat in on many insurance carrier meetings discussing how this will pan out and it WON'T be pretty people!! Lord help us all....
At least I'm WORKING TO PAY MY WAY!!! The reason I am FORCED to work 65 hours starting next week is because I don't qualify for assistance because someone else who DESERVES it more is getting it for doing NOTHING but mooching!! Go get back in the "hand-out" line asb and I'll keep paying your way and don't forget to run down to the Goodwill and pick up that $2.00 winter coat!!
Exactly! And if the people who think they are "entitled" would get off their LAZY butts and at least try, maybe people who are in real TEMPORARY NEED would get some assistance! Bottom line is assistance of ANY KIND was never meant to be on for a LIFETIME!! Starting Tuesday I will be full-time 8-5 and then directly to the 2nd job from 5:30-10 oh and Monday evening will be orientation...YAY ME!! Hey, at least I'll save on food...no time to eat dinner in between and I'll be changing clothes in the bathroom before I leave job NUMBER ONE!! Just another day in paradise...LIVING IN AMERICA AND PAYING FOR SOMEONE ELSE'S DREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
spelchek...I read a lot of your comments and I have no idea your gender, ethnic background, age, or anything else, but it doesn't even matter. Your comments are fact based, thought provoking, eloquent, grammatically correct, a little humurous with a bit of sarcasm thrown in and spot on the money every time!! I think I'm in LOVE!! Have YOU ever though of running for public office?? Bahahaha!! :)
I actually will start a SECOND job on Monday AFTER I work all day at my FULL-TIME JOB, so there are jobs out there, but no need to work when someone else is paying your way!! So, rest assured that my ADDITIONAL TAXES PAID will help you people who feel you are ENTITLED be sure that you still get all your FREEBIES!! Feel free to pop out another kid or two and eat your steaks on MY dime, while I'm bustin my old hump and eating ramen noodles!! I got your back and you're welcome!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It may as well be!!!!!!!!
Well said Grumpy!! :)
How about making them simply pass a monthly drug test...is that too much to ask? If I have to pass one in order to WORK then ANYONE who is on ANY TYPE of government assistance should certainly have to pass one!! Now, that would be a good start!!
And, who exactly "benefits" the most connor?
