A Dark Evil Omen: Corvus: SlothB77: vpb: So, the strategy of using part time workers that has been going on for decades is Obama's fault then?  That guy is amazing.

Before Obamacare: Company A hired full-time workers.
After Obamacare: health care costs go up and Company A decides to change their workers to part-time as a result.

Definitely could be because of Obamacare.

Damn President Fart and his FARTARDIS.

Testiclaw: Choo-Choo Bear: This is brought to you by the same folks that don't understand increasing the minimum wage increases unemployment.  Businesses aren't going to cut into their profits to pay more.  They are going to find a way to decrease their losses, and that generally means cutting back on employee hours / shifts / benefits / etc...

It's not a good thing, but it's a true thing.  Economics 101.

Since we can look at corporate profits and the implementation of the minimum wage, unemployment and subsequent increases, can you provide evidence to support your first assertion?

If it is Economics 101 I'm sure a simple graph is out there, the same way it is easy to find images of basics for Math 101.


It is pretty simple, he went to a top 5 economics school. You have to think in terms of an island where the coconuts represent healthcare...

hasty ambush: xanadian: Well, Obamacare is the bastard son of what the Heritage Foundation once dreamed up...

I did not realize that Obama and the Democrats were tools of the Heritage Foundation. If only Obama would have disclosed this before election time it might have changed the way you voted.

Government sizes control of 10% of the economy and people, for some stupid reason, expect good things to happen. Obamacare was not about providing healthcare to the uninsured (there are plenty of easier, less costly ways of doing that). It was about expanding the power of the Federal government.


Hey! Those are Sloth's paint chips. You give them back.

Weaver95: The My Little Pony Killer: Actually, Obamacare will keep your working situation exactly the same, except now you actually have a chance at qualifying for and getting healthcare.

/and I'm supposed to be upset about this, why again?

Because obamacare will end all life in the universe and bring about the end times.


If the end times means I get to watch St. Peter laugh in a Republican's face when they ask to get into heaven, then bring 'em on.

Yes, but let's not overlook like some Saudi Shiek will go into MD Anderson to raise his chances of survival from pancreatic cancer from 1% to 1.25%, therefore we have the greatest system in the world that best serves the needs for for  300 million Americans.

I bundle a few bad coconuts together with passable ones and use them as leverage for my banana default swaps, and run a tiki-derivative against the entire scheme.
