NBC NEWS: Businesses, Unions, Colleges all say employee hours being cut over Obamacare but WH says “no evidence”

NBC News contacted around 20 small businesses and other entities for this report and found that employee hours are being cut to 29 hours because of Obamacare, despite the delay of the employer mandate. But the White House, NBC News reports, says that there is no systematic evidence that this is because of Obamacare and dismisses the report as anecdotal.

Watch:

TheresaKelly I’m well covered in this area – thanks!.  What conscientious people should realize is that the so-called “Republicans” such as both Bushes, McCains, Boehners, are socialists just the same.  They are socialists with religion, which they try to jam down everyone’s throat, just like their Democrat brethren, who jam guilt down everyone’s throat.  Only when this is clearly understood will it be possible to separate the parasites from the productive society.

” I left a contract position at the end of the contract and took another contractual position. That move resulted in decreased pay AND benefits (an understatement – I went from having reasonable employer benefits (health/dental/vision/retirement) to no benefits – employer didn’t even pay social security in the new position).  I’ll start yet another contract this fall with still lower pay and no benefits. ”
If you entered into a contract then you obviously AGREED to the terms…your lower pay and benefits is due more to a lack of negotiation skills, or lack of demand for your skill set. Perhaps you should consider changing your skill set to make your self more valuable and give yourself a better bargaining posture during contract negotiation.

info_bomberJimmyVickSilmarilTelerin  No contradiction at all.  When I left Twentieth Century motor company, I left it behind my unfinished prototype.  I knew by the very nature of the parasites none of them could figure out let alone attempt to find the final answer.  Figuring things out for themselves is not part of the parasites paradigm of thought. A good analogy would be Rheinhold  Messner showing a map with the line of one of his Himalayan solo route summits.  He knows he is the only human that could do it at that time. Those daring enough to consider it lack the ability, commitment, or both to undertake the task.  Otherwise it would have been already done. My little blurb was just a fraction of what I am working on right now.  I have found a new summit, I am on route, and good luck catching me before the summit via some other… Read more »

JimmyVick info_bomber SilmarilTelerin If you are John Galt as you state and your summations are true as you state being truly John Galt did you not just give away the information that would send the looters/moochers on a path to do exactly that which furthers their agenda of mutually assured destruction through the consumption of the producers, specifically the mountain movers, those that do what no other can and then use that capability to build around them a creation that forces them to continue to better themselves to create more?  If you are John Galt and I just characterized your contradiction of your statement, now either it is me that must check my premise or you are a liar, but a word smith of a talent that is almost an art!

info_bomberSilmarilTelerin  I am John Galt and solving the secrets of the universe is something I chose to do for my own pleasure. History has proven that one of the great hubris’s of mankind has been consensus based on assumptions.There is one consensus based on assumption that I am now going to challenge. There is currently a scientific consensus that black holes must preserve physical information in their horizons somehow. “Physical information” is referring to quantum determinism and reversibility in the form of the quantum evolution operators via some as yet undiscovered form of quantum gravity. Even without a formal theory of quantum gravity, there is a huge problem looming even if we did have one. If black holes preserve information in their horizons it would be in a constant state of change. Material is constantly being added to a black hole so the horizon would always be preserving new physical… Read more »

A good old fashion revolution is over due! People have been silent for way too long! The pot is finally stewing! People are finally beginning to understand that the root of the problem is that both political parties are overrun with criminal lawyers who have sold Americans out to line their own pockets and that of their constituants ! Obama, Pelosi, Hillary, Bohiner, McCain, Perry and more habitually and continually lie to the american people and the news media has aided the corruption! Alex if you have no aim buy a shotgun! Democrats have had control of Detroit since the 60’s and their policies have destroyed it! Democrats have had control of Congress since Clinton and at three times the pace have brought our nation to the brink of destruction. Buy a gun and stock up on ammo because those 47 million dependant tax payer dependant folks will come after… Read more »

“But the MSM and the Administration will not allow that info to get out. And if you think the DOL is not cooking those numbers to make things look good, they are.”
The information is out and widely available on the internet. The msm does not report it, because it would make the administration look bad. The financial news does not report it, because it would undermine business and consumer confidence. With e6 at 15 percent,  and a work force participation rate that is nearly five percentage points lower than it was in 2007, there is no reason to believe the DOL is cooking the books.

AdamSternberg Obama is not a dope.  He knows exactly what he is doing and his plan for America to be punished and destroyed is working!  If there is anyone who thinks he has you or our country in  his best interest is delusional.  He is not going to change his path to America’s destruction till it is complete.

I’ve come to the conclusion that by paying taxes you’re only funding your own oppression! It was a different matter when we had law abiding politicians! Stop giving these criminals your hard earned money!
This ponzi scheme Democrats and Republicans are running needs to come to a swift end, and each of you have the power to make that happen!

All they have to say is no evidence, phony scandals and the same idiots who voted him in believe it– If other countries are having uprises to have their voices heard- why are we sitting here doing nothing to get our voices heard.  I am talking peaceful not terrorist-The media is corrupt- I just read that they are doing a million man march for muslims on 9/11–where is the million man march for Americans!!

And now these Jackasses in Congress are talking about creating a slush fund for ObamaCare! With 47 million on food stamps, the rest of America working part time, with no cap on what you have to pay out of pocket, there will not be any money in the system to squeeze out of taxpayers!
The reason the cap was lifted on individuals was to break you! Individual citizens by themselves have no voice! The whole thing is scandoulus! Obama attempting to alter his bill that’s been written into law and sticking it to the individual citizen is illegal, if not criminal! He’s breaking his own law!

LOL, Orange, that’s because they are to busy laying off staff, dropping insurance carriers! ObamaCare is a total disaster!
When it’s so bad that the liberal media is forced to report it, its a dire desperate disaster and individuals ought to be worried!
Now that they have removed the cap on individuals, be prepared to take it up the tailpipe! Obama Care from its inception was always an insurance scheme! The fact is abundantly clear!

Yep, those of us on the other side of the political aisle saw this coming.  NOBODY LISTENED.  Young people just entering the workforce voted overwhelmingly for Obama, thusly shooting themselves in the foot.
