Good Times?

44 posts in this topic

From the ultra conservative Washington Post (sarcasm), an ominous sign at just the outset of the debacle called Obamacare. I remember multitudes of times when the left screamed about the right wanting to do terrible things to the elderly. Ahhh, whatever. Let the good times roll.

What does "Obamacare" have to do with Medicare? This is due to the sequester, which the GOP wanted to happen.

Cancer clinics across the country have begun turning away thousands of Medicare patients, blaming the sequester budget cuts.

GOP allowed Obama to get his way. Sequester was Obama's idea. Why you whining about the GOP allowing Obama's policies to take effect.

Private practices have been taking less and less Medicare patients for years, but this is only going to escalate it due to Obamacare's changes in medicare reimbursements for certain diagnosis codes/tests.

I'm curious if anyone know exactly why companies are being very careful not to hire more than 50 employees because of this legislation.

I have talked to a few small business owners who are only hiring contractors and part timers right now.

I was hired as a contractor almost 6 years ago by what is probably the BIGGEST COMPANY around. I was brought on full time with others only when it became a company security issue.

My insurance coverage at work as of April 1st doubled, yep doubled. Just single coverage for myself. I didn't have this issue before. Anyone care to explain this?

You work for a company with an angry Republican running it who wants to make you suffer? Mine went up some but no more than usual.
