fusillade762: Analysts said limiting hours could pose new challenges, including higher turnover and less-qualified workers.

What could possibly go wrong?


Less qualified. Less qualified than a present Olive Garden employee

Because we know the status quo was sooo much better.

Um, yeah... You know they could have just passed a couple of small bills for pre-existing conditions, did a little tort reform and made the American people happy. But noooooooo, they had to fark it all up.

So basically what you're saying, as liberals is... "Okay Conservatives, you were right, and we were liars or fools to actually say that ObamaCare would save businesses so much money!"

At some point you're just going to have to admit that conservatives were right about everything on ObamaCare... because so far we've been 100% correct.

This is a test program, and hopefully it will be shown to be unfeasible. Just that it's a test program and they're not doing it across the board shows that they're not confident they can fight this and are just floating a balloon.
