You might remember Joel Gilbert from another story we did on him here at CH2.0.

Starstruck Obama Voter has Fundamental Transformation: Must See Video

Well now Joel has a new film out and it is pretty damning towards Barack Obama and the shabby way he’s treated his family since he became President and accumulated his wealth, becoming a multi-millionaire.


 

In an interview conducted earlier this month, film maker Joel Gilbert, who produced the film “Dreams from My Real Father,” (which suggested that Obama’s Communist mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, may be his real father) talks to President Obama’s brother Malik, who has some very strong views about his half-brother – including his own doubts as to Obama’s parentage.

Malik says, he feels “Disappointed, disappointed, used, used and also betrayed. In the beginning, I didn’t think that he was a schemer. His real character, his real personality, the real him, is coming out now.”

Trust me Malik, you are not alone.

‘…the way that he’s turned and become a different person with the family is the same way that I see him behaving politically. He says one thing and then he does another. He’s not been an honest man, as far as I’m concerned, in who he is and what he says and how he treats people.”

While Malik and Barack are not particularly close now, Malik was close enough to have been the best man at Barack and Michelle’s wedding, has visited the White House, and is president of the Barack H. Obama Foundation.

Gilbert asks Malik if he really thinks he and Obama share the same father. Granted, Gilbert has a vested interest in the answer, considering he’s hawking a book about the subject, but Malik’s response is still troubling. He has his doubts.

However, most troubling is how Americans were duped into electing this dishonest “schemer” as president – twice.

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and William Douglas and David Lightman at The State.

So the historic 2014 Midterms have given the GOP once in nearly a century numbers in both Houses and Governorships, but with Obama in the White House for his last two, lame duck years, how do they get bills past the Dems in the Senate?

Sixty. It’s the magic number for getting most things done in the U.S. Senate – and it will be the target for Republicans to get legislation through the House of Representatives, past Democratic objections in the Senate and to the desk of President Barack Obama.

Republicans will have at most 54 seats in the new Senate next January. So they’d need to gain at least six Democrats on anything controversial, to break a legislation-blocking filibuster by the rest of the Democrats.

And they might do it. From an oil pipeline to a medical tax, there are some areas where the Senate could marshal 60 or more votes. The challenge will be building a new coalition on each issue.

If Republicans move to repeal the Affordable Care Act’s medical-device tax, for example, they might lure liberal Democrats such as Minnesota’s Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken and Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren, who voted for the repeal in a symbolic vote last year.

The Keystone XL Pipeline

Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who’ll be the majority leader when the Republicans take over, has vowed that the Senate will vote next year to push the 1,700-mile pipeline, which would send oil from Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast. Senate Democratic leaders blocked consideration of the pipeline for two years, while Obama postponed his approval.

“The reality is you gain that vote in Iowa and you solidify all those folks who could have been pressured out of voting for it,” said Frank Maisano, an energy expert at a Washington law firm that represents a variety of industry clients.

Earlier this year, Sens. Mary Landrieu, D-La., and John Hoeven, R-N.D., introduced a bill that would approve the pipeline. Landrieu, who’s now the chair of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, may not return in January: She faces a runoff Dec. 6 against Republican Bill Cassidy.

But the measure was sponsored by all Senate Republicans, as well as six Democrats who are coming back next year: Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Jon Tester of Montana, Mark Warner of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Joe Donnelly of Indiana and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota.

ObamaCare

Senate Democrats will block Republican efforts to kill the Affordable Care Act, but enough of them might go along with some changes in the health care law that would make it to Obama.

McConnell might move to repeal a 2.3 percent excise tax on medical devices that’s in the law, and he may have willing partners in several Democratic senators, including Warren, Klobuchar and Franken, who represent major medical-device-making states.

Last year, 79 senators – including 33 Democrats and independent Angus King of Maine – supported a nonbinding measure to repeal the tax.

Immigration

Getting a comprehensive immigration plan, including a path to citizenship for the estimated 11 million people already living in the U.S. illegally, might be difficult in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Addressing immigration in a piecemeal fashion may be easier, perhaps easing the way for such immigrants to stay in the country.

Some of the key players in last year’s bipartisan effort, notably Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., have pushed for comprehensive immigration legislation for years and are expected to continue doing so. Fourteen Republicans joined 52 Democrats and two independents last year to pass the comprehensive immigration bill, which went nowhere in the House, and 13 of them will still be in the Senate next year.

Taking the Senate Doesn’t Matter

Share

I’m writing here because I can – it doesn’t mean that we’re returning to full time writing.

To the point.  A lot of you out there are putting your support behind McConnell and Cochran in order to assure a majority in the Senate.  Let me stop you from making that mistake by laying out some reasons not to and then explaining why getting them out is more important than taking the Senate.

First, what they did in Mississippi is as insulting as it gets.  Even Hillary Clinton spoke positive of the GOP going after true conservatives and “expanding their base” (as if).  Of course she doesn’t give a hoot about republicans expanding their base – she is just happy to see conservatives lose.  Well, it was McConnell and the GOP establishment who used the most disgusting tricks against their own party members that I’ve seen in my adult life – calling McDaniel a racist, and suggesting that his anti-Obama sentiments were bad (which implies Thad thinks that Obama is peachy).  How can a conservative possibly pull the lever for either of these guys who is willing to sell you out so quickly?

Second, they’re not true conservatives.  Oh, I know that they rate well with certain think tanks or conservative grades; but many of those votes are showboat in nature.  They make the vote to get their score; not to push the conservative agenda.  Let’s put it to the true test.

How many of you can name one instance where either of these boobs has shrunk government or expanded freedom?  Am I wrong or were both of these guys in office for the second most expansive growth of government?  Oh, and didn’t the GOP have control of both Houses?  And didn’t we also have an establishment guy in the Executive?  How well did that work out for conservative principles?  How much limitation was set on the fed?  No Child Left Behind, McCain Feingold, and three times the domestic spending of Clinton; 20 times that of Reagan!  All of that was done with republican lead House and Senate.

But let us look at what change would be made if we took the Senate.  McCain already said that he was going to overturn the Reid Filibuster Rule – giving the Senate Democrats more power than the Senate Republicans currently have.  But let us suppose that we want to cut spending.  Okay, it starts in the House, passes the Senate and then – crap – the veto comes.  Do we have 2/3rds of either house?  Nope.  So the bill is dead.  Knowing that the cowards in the House and Senate will simply sit on everything until 2016.  So, THEN we will get stuff done right?  Based on what evidence?  The House could have used the power of the purse now against this President on any number of issues (Obamacare was the failed promise) but Johnny Boehner dropped that tool like a hot iron.  They could have impeached on any number of executive overreaches (hiding witnesses from Congress, refusing to enforce law passed by Congress, handing out waivers in spite of law, etc.) and yet they didn’t even attempt.

The GOP will do nothing!  They will look to the next election to gain the White House and then attempt to put in a big government republican like Jeb Bush.  And then he will likely lose (like they always do).  That doesn’t seem to matter though does it?  I mean, McConnell supported Romney, McCain, Dole, both Bush boys and even Ford against Reagan.  He’s a Rockefeller Republican and so are the rest of his ilk.  They know how to lose.  If they somehow end up winning (doubtful) do you think they will finally make conservative advances?  If yes, based on what evidence?  Rhetoric?  They will expand their tentacles into cronyism, they will grow government, get involved in international affairs we have no business in, expand domestic spy programs, complicate the tax code further, and pass amnesty (if not already done).

The only way to change our government is to get rid of one of the two evils – not vote for the lesser evil.  If McConnell loses his election in Kentucky and Thad his in Mississippi; who cares?  Those are two very conservative states that will boot those senators in the next election cycle (hopefully for true conservatives).  If you reelect them then the establishment will be emboldened and they will continue to crush the Tea Party with their allies from the left.  If you vote them out then we get two democrats who will be able to do nothing in a republican controlled House and a possible slight controlled Senate.  One is the path of no change and the other is a path of complete change.

We must lay the groundwork for the future – and that isn’t found on reelecting two guys who haven’t done any conservative change in 30+ years of politics.  Send a message to the ones who insulted you and do the unthinkable; stay home or, as I plan to do in my state of Kentucky, vote Democrat.

Romney was Right

Share

frown-romney

Hat/Tip to Newsmax and Politico.

He tried to tell America during his ill-fated 2012 run for the President of the United States, but it seems he wasn’t listened to. Well at least it’s for sure that Obama didn’t believe him or listen to him, judging by Obama’s spectacularly awful year and half since winning his second term.

In the nearly 20 months since Mitt Romney lost the election to President Barack Obama, many of the former Massachusetts governor’s predictions have played out on the world stage.

For instance, Romney called Russia the nation’s “number one geopolitical foe”; he pledged strong support for Israel amid tense relations with Iran and other neighbors; declared that corporations are “people” — and said that illegal immigration remained a continued threat to the American economy.

As a result, Mitt Romney’s popularity is increasing.

As many realities have developed in the U.S. and abroad, Romney’s popularity has increased in national polls — and it is believed that he is considering a White House run in 2016.

“Mitt Romney, in retrospect, was not omniscient,” Bradley Blakeman, a former adviser to President George W. Bush, told Newsmax. “He saw what was there to be seen. He saw the world as it was — not the way he wished it would be.

And Blakeman is right, if it weren’t for bad news, Obama wouldn’t make the news at all.

“Obama believed that he could change the world with just his presence on the world stage and with his words. His hope was naïve and impossible,” Blakeman added. “He was running for president, not messiah.

“He never has been able to match his words with deeds. And, today, if it were not for bad news — Obama doesn’t make news.

The vindication of Romney being right when he warned of Russia being our biggest geopolitical foe during the debate where Obama quipped, “…the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back,” is leading some to make the case for a Romney run in ’16.

Romney recognizes well the historical odds against becoming a repeat nominee. In the film Mitt, which documents his two presidential campaigns, he is captured at a fundraiser making an “L” on his forehead to depict how a failed nominee becomes “a loser for life.” “We just brutalize whoever loses,” he says. We can assume George McGovern, Michael Dukakis, Bob Dole, Al Gore, John Kerry and John McCain came to a similar conclusion.

Will Romney be different from these other failed nominees? Could he defy the odds and make a comeback presidential bid capturing the GOP nomination after all the doubt, second-guessing and blame that accompany such a loss? According to the latest Quinnipiac poll, many Americans seem to think so—45 percent of voters said the United States would be better off today with Romney as president.

So does all this mean that Mitt is considering another run in ’16?

That was also the question on not just the minds but the lips of many at a recent private gathering in Utah known as the E2 Summit, Romney’s now-annual retreat for high-profile politicians, policymakers, innovators, entrepreneurs, business leaders, top bundlers and, of course, a core group of long-time Romney loyalists. (Disclosure: I served in multiple roles in the 2012 campaign, including adviser to the economic team, television surrogate and fundraiser.) Although the subject was not on any agenda or the topic of any speech or breakout session, virtually every meal, cocktail hour and coffee break included quiet ruminations over whether Romney could successfully run again.

The event was off the record, so I need to honor those ground rules, but suffice to say that many of speakers, some of the brightest lights of the Republican Party, and with no particular allegiance to Romney, saw great merit in a Mitt resurgence.

Well only time will tell. As for my editorial comment on this, I will say that Mitt Romney was not my first choice in 2012, but once he became our nominee, I lent him my 100% support. Party dissent, name-calling and pulling for your particular dog in the fight is what primaries are for, but once we get a nominee, we need to do all we can to put that person in the White House.

I’m thinking that America would already begin to be looking much different with a President Romney, had things turned out differently in ’12.

“My Cancellation’ Site Shows How ObamaCare has Hurt People

Share

The site is named, My Cancellation, and it is an open forum for people to submit their cancellation stories, letters, and pics.  Here is a sampling…

The Democrats may lie about it, but there is no escaping it-not only are people losing their plans, what they are offered under ObamaCare is far more expensive. Just to recap…

1.  “If you like your plan you can keep it.”  LIE!

2.  Premiums are going to come down by $2500 a year.  LIE!

And, as always, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  You were warned, but you chose to listen to the administration, or drank the Kool Aid offered by MSNBC.  And all of them lied to you.

#ObamaCare Damage: 100,000 to Lose Insurance in NY; 800,000 on NJ Impacted

Share

I bet there are a bunch of Obama voters out there wondering what happened with #ObamaCare.  They’re getting cancellation notices for the plans that Obama told them they could keep.  Not only that, most are being told that they can get another plan, with a higher deductible, and a far higher premium.  Of course, they could have read here, for years, about what was going to happen, but they watched the MSM instead.  So, now they are going to pay for their vote.  Jammie Wearing Fool has more…

You voted for him, so now you must be punished. If you like your Hope and Change, you can keep your Hope and Change.

Insurers are canceling the medical policies of about 100,000 New Yorkers enrolled in individual health plans because of ObamaCare, state health officials said.

But the figure is actually much higher because it doesn’t take into account hundreds of thousands covered under small business group policies that are being scrapped or rewritten to conform to the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.

In New Jersey, the policies of 800,000 residents are affected by the insurance overhaul, officials in the Garden State said.

“Approximately 100,000 individuals will be required to change insurance because current plans are not compliant with ACA [Affordable Care Act],” said New York state Health Department spokesman Bill Schwarz.

Many of the existing policies are deemed substandard under ObamaCare. All new policies are required to carry new consumer protections — such as the prohibition on denying coverage for pre-existing medical conditions — and carry 10 “essential health benefits,” including maternity and pediatric care, substance abuse and mental health treatment, chronic disease care, and prescription drug, dental and vision coverage.

Now, mind you, you could be a 50 year old male, and be forced to pay for maternity care, or pediatric care.  Of course, we all know that 50 year old men are the biggest consumers of maternity care out there.  And they still see their pediatricians too, don’t they?

Just as a reminder; if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  You were warned, but you chose the sweet sounding lies instead. Enjoy your higher costs, and your maternity care!

ObamaCare Damage: NBC Airs Report That Shows Small Business Owner’s Plan Goes up 400%, Mandates Maternity Coverage for His 59 year-old Wife

obamacare

Those pesky 59 year-old wives, you never know what they are going to do.  At least according to ObamaCare, they needed maternity coverage.  That, and they REQUIRE maternity coverage.  Welcome to the world of ObamaCare! As NBC news shows, a small businessman is getting hosed by the law…

The gentlemen is only one of millions of Americans that can not only lose their plan, but will now pay many times more, for coverage that they neither want nor need.

ObamaCare Damage: Are People Being Given Lowball Quotes?

Share

If this claim is correct, not only does the ObamaCare website fail to enroll you, gives false information to insurance companies, and is a open air market for identity theft, it also gives you lowball numbers as to what your premiums will be.  The Conservative Intelligence Briefing has more…

h/t Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. As a former customer of eHealthInsurance.com, I can tell you that that website never gave me a “teaser” rate that was half what I ended up paying. In fact, I got a plan (for about $80 per month, with a $2,800 deductible) that went down in price each year over the four years I was carrying it.

But as CBS News reported this morning, Health Care dot gov’s new price-quote option — designed to let you see a price before entering all of your personal information — is low-balling everyone’s premiums. If you’re 49 or under, it quotes you a rate for a 27-year-old. If you’re between 50 and 64, it quotes you a rate for a 50-year-old. The result is that the site will always lowball your price unless you are exactly 50 years old, by somewhere in the range of 50 to 80 percent. Just watch:

As the quoted post indicates, if a private company did this, they’d be charged with fraud. But, since this is government that we’re talking about, they are exempt. Then again, didn’t the president say that prices WOULD go down, and that if “you like your plan, you can keep it?”

It might be easier to count the times that this administration has told the truth, rather than compile the lies.

Oh, and by the way, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  We warned that this would be a disaster.  Elections have consequences.

ObamaCare Damage: Skyrocketing Health Care Costs Confound NC Businessman

Share

Yesterday, we reviewed how President Obama lied early and often about how ObamaCare was going to decrease premiums.  We went over that many people have had their premiums double, or even triple.  And now, we have the plight of a NC businessman who is struggling between a rock and a hard place in order to do right by his employees and customers…

Did you catch the lie at the very end of the video?  That runs counter to the CBS News report from earlier that indicates that the system needs a complete overhaul to function. 

In the end, ObamaCare is everything we said it would be, and less.  That, and you have to be living under a rock, a die hard regressive, a pathological liar, or floridly psychotic to miss it.

ObamaCare Causes Big Bird to Lose Health Insurance?

Share

howobamacareworkds

Well, kinda.  It appears that among the SeaWorld workers that will be losing their hours and coverage, are employees of their subsidiary, Sesame Place.   Naked DC has more…

Yes, America, Big Bird is about to lose his health insurance  under Obamacare. Or, at least, at least the guy who walks around in the Big Bird suit at Sesame Place is.

Last year, Big Bird’s job security was thrust into the political spotlight.

This year, it’s his health insurance.

In a letter sent last week to President Obama, U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick contended that the Affordable Care Act had caused Sesame Place, one of Bucks County’s biggest tourist attractions, to terminate health benefits for its part-time employees.

“This law is hurting real people in my district and around the country,” the Bucks County Republican wrote.

A spokesman for SeaWorld, the amusement park’s parent company, confirmed Wednesday that the company was cutting the weekly work limit for part-time employees from 32 to 28 hours. Under the Affordable Care Act, companies can face fines if they do not provide insurance for staffers who work at least 30 hours per week.

Fred Jacobs, the SeaWorld spokesman, did not say whether the change in policy had been prompted by the health-care law.

Well, big Bird may have lost their insurance, but I’m sure they can find something on the ObamaCare exchanges that costs a ton more.  And, they’ll have the additional prospect of absolutely no chance of getting full time work, given the strong disincentives to doing that.

Oh, and by they way, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.

ObamaCare Damage: Sea World Reduces Hours for Thousands of Workers to Under 30 a Week

Share

obamacare

It would appear that SeaWorld is the latest in a long line of employers that are slashing worker’s hours to avoid ObamaCare penalties.  Breitbart has more…

SeaWorld has announced plans to slash thousands of part-time workers’ hours to no more than 28 hours a week. Reducing part-time workers’ current 32 hours a week down to 28 weekly hours will avoid Obamacare’s 30-hour full-time trigger that forces employers to provide comprehensive health insurance benefits or face up to $3,000 per employee in fines.

SeaWorld’s public relations department offered scant details on its plans but said the move “is intended to bring consistency to the part-time designation across the SeaWorld Parks system.” SeaWorld says part-time workers’ hours will be cut beginning in November but would not answer whether Obamacare prompted the decision.

“There is no other reason to change your cap from 32 hours to 28 other than” Obamacare, former Walt Disney World executive and University of Central Florida hospitality management professor Duncan Dickson told the Orlando Sentinel.

So, let’s repeat…

If you voted for Obama, you voted for this.  You were warned.

ObamaCare to Cost Delta Airlines $100,000,000 IN ONE YEAR!

Share

We’ve covered a lot of ObamaCare Damage in the last couple years.  Hundreds of thousands of workers have had their hours cut.  Many have lost their plans.  Almost 75% of all jobs created so far in 2013 are part time jobs.  And as a far as we can see, that’s only the beginning.  For the latest, here is a letter from Delta Airlines.

Delta Airlines expects Obamacare will directly and indirectly cost it $100 million in 2014.

As you can see, ObamaCare is going to present a significant threat to Delta, and it’s workers. Delta has the usual options at it’s disposal to deal with this, but under labor contracts, it is unknown how far they can go to survive.

Here is a quote…

More troubling, Delta notes it designed a specific insurance plan for its pilots. But because of “cadillac tax” rules, Delta is going to have to scrap that plan because, though it meets the needs of Delta’s pilots, it runs afoul of government regulations relating to the extravagance of plans.

I raised the wanting about this some time ago.  I said that if ObamaCare taxes “Cadillac Plans,” then the companies will change these plans to at least one cent below the tax threshhold.  In other words, I doubt the government will collect very much from that tax.

Oh, and by the way Delta pilots, did you “like” your plan?  Remember how Obama said, if you liked your plan, you could keep it?  Yeah, he was lying about that too.

And, these airlines are super-rich mega corporations, right?

My friend George Will, back in 2002, noted that the airline industry historically, “may not have netted a nickel since the Wright brothers. It certainly had net losses 1945-94. After the brief boom of the late 1990s, it was hemorrhaging money even before terrorists attacked the United States through the industry.”

If you recall, airlines got a bailout after 9-11, and they’ve never really bounced back.  Will Obama’s policies killing jobs left and right, people aren’t flying so much now.  Will Delta make it if they have to pay $100,000,000 in one year for ObamaCare?  I doubt it’s going to be pretty.

And, as always, if you voted for Obama, you voted for this.

Even More ObamaCare Damage: Even Reuters is Reporting on the Part-Time Job Trend

Share

It seems that even Reuters can’t avoid discussing what we’ve been covering for months; that ObamaCare is forcing businesses to convert full time jobs into part time jobs. 

Even Reuters can’t hide the truth any longer:

U.S. businesses are hiring at a robust rate. The only problem is that three out of four of the nearly 1 million hires this year are part-time and many of the jobs are low-paid.

Faltering economic growth at home and abroad and concern that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will drive up business costs are behind the wariness about taking on full-time staff, executives at staffing and payroll firms say.

Employers say part-timers offer them flexibility. If the economy picks up, they can quickly offer full-time work. If orders dry up, they know costs are under control. It also helps them to curb costs they might face under the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

This can all become a less-than-virtuous cycle as new employees, who are mainly in lower wage businesses such as retail and food services, do not have the disposable income to drive demand for goods and services.

I covered this weeks ago, but at least it is starting to trickle out.  Of course, the Obama administration will apply it’s typical  “lie and deny” strategy to it, and regressives will blame it on the businesses, who are having the audacity to stay in business, rather than try to pay for insurance or pay the ObamaCare fine.

ObamaCare Damage: UPS to Drop 15,000 Spouse From Coveage Due to ObamaCare

Share

obamacare

Remember this pledge from our President???

“…you can keep your plan…”

Well, once again, reality shows Obama to be a poor liar.  There have already been tenms of thousands of people, if not more, to lose their insurance because of ObamaCare.  Recently, UPS announced that 15,000 spouses will be dropped from their plan.  The reason?  ObamaCare. 

United Parcel Service Inc. plans to remove thousands of spouses from its medical plan because they are eligible for coverage elsewhere. The Atlanta-based logistics company points to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, as a big reason for the decision, reports Kaiser Health News.

The decision comes as many analysts are downplaying the Affordable Care Act’s effect on companies such as UPS, noting that the move reflects a long-term trend of shrinking corporate medical benefits, Kaiser Health News reports. But UPS repeatedly cites Obamacare to explain the decision, adding fuel to the debate over whether it erodes traditional employer coverage, Kaiser says.

Rising medical costs, “combined with the costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care benefits to our employees at an affordable cost,” UPS said in a memo to employees.

These 15,000 people don’t get to keep their plan.  Of course, 15,000 people losing their plans is a small price to pay, as long as the government (which is except from ObamaCare) get’s to control luge a huge part of our economy.

The article also mentions that there have been other consequences of ObamaCare…

Earlier this week, Forever 21 Inc. became the latest national company to cut employee hours to counter the impact of Obamacare, according to Policymic.com.

Atlanta-based AAA Parking, a parking garage operator that employs more than 1,600 companywide, moved about half of its 500 full-time hourly employees to part-time status on April 15, in response to the law.

Note that Forever 21 has denied that the change was due to ObamaCare.  However, they cut their employees hours down to 29.5, right below the 30 hour cutoff for ObamaCare.

Coincidence?  Please!

People losing hours.  People losing their insurance.  People losing their jobs entirely.   Businesses not hiring.  This was all predicted will in advance of the 2012 election.  If you voted for Obama, you voted for this to happen.  You were warned.

Elections Have Consequences: White Castle Considers Hiring no More Full Time Employees

Share

People were warned that a vote for Obama would cost them, but far too many were in  spigot cities, or were low information voters that bleated to the MSM’s beat, and tapped a touch screen for Obama.  Now, many more are paying the price.  White Castle, the well known burger joint, is joining other companies in considering if they can stay in business while paying for insurance, or paying ObamaCare fines. 

The fast food restaurant best known for its small, square burgers and role in the 2004 movie “Harold and Kumar go to White Castle,” is considering only hiring part-time workers because of the costs associated with President Obama’s signature legislative act.

White Castle currently employs 9,600 workers nationwide, about half of which are full-time employees. The company will not take away hours or benefits from them, however, according to White Castle Vice President Jamie Richardson.

“If we were to keep our health insurance program exactly like it is with no changes, every forecast we’ve looked at has indicated our costs will go up 24 percent,” Richardson told National Public Radio

White Castle is just the latest food business to change its benefits policies as a result of the law. Wisconsin supermarket chain Trig’s is cutting the hours for its part-time workers to avoid going bankrupt paying for the benefits mandated in the new law.

“Doing nothing was not an option,” Angie Dreifuerst, the Vice President of Human Resources and Benefits at Trig’s, told NBC affiliate WJFW. “It would have put us out of business, within a year.”

But, if you look at liberal comments at the source site, you see some people that cannot process reality.  However, it doesn’t matter if they are denying reality or not, because it;s going to happen anyway.  And, if  any of those White Castle employees voted for Obama, they voted for this.

ObamaCare Damage: Ohio Rates to Rise 88%!

Share

It’s ObamaCare Damage time yet again!  You were warned.  We told you that if people re-elected Obama, that people would be paying more for their health insurance.  Frankly, it was not due to any special insights or skills, unless you consider grasp of the obvious to be superhuman.  So, armed with nothing more than math and common sense, we were able to predict the increases in health insurance premiums.  Doug Ross has the latest example…

It’s another success story for central planning! Avik Roy explains:

…on Thursday, the Ohio Department of Insurance announced that, based on the rates submitted by insurers to date, the average individual-market health insurance premium in 2014 will come in around $420, “representing an increase of 88 percent” relative to 2013…

So then, yet another rate increase. But didn’t Obama promise reduced rates?

And didn’t Pelosi make the same promises?

So, if you believed the lies, and voted for Obama, you really voted for increased premiums.  Hope you enjoy that, because you asked for it.

It’s a shame that so many Obama voter are suffering the consequences of their vote.  But, then again, being a “low information voter” is a choice.  The information was out there, freely available.  People could  have looked up the facts and known that they were in for it if the voted Democrat.  But, too many listened to the MSM, or their union boss, and now, they are paying the price-literally and figuratively.  FOX News has the latest example, the Regal Entertainment Group,

The nation’s largest movie theater chain has cut the hours of thousands of employees, saying in a company memo that ObamaCare requirements are to blame.

Regal Entertainment Group, which operates more than 500 theaters in 38 states, last month rolled back shifts for non-salaried workers to 30 hours per week, putting them under the threshold at which employers are required to provide health insurance. The Nashville-based company said in a letter to managers that the move was a direct result of ObamaCare.

“In addition, some managers have requested guidance on what they should tell those employees negatively impacted and, at your discretion, we suggest the following,” read the memo obtained by FoxNews.com. “To comply with the Affordable Care Act, Regal had to increase our health care budget to cover those newly deemed eligible based on the law’s definition of a full-time employee.”

“To manage this budget, all other employees will be scheduled in accord with business needs and in a manner that will not negatively impact our health care budget,” the message continues.

Regal, which had revenue of $2.8 billion in 2011, is the latest company to respond this way to the Affordable Health Care Act’s requirement that employees at companies of a certain size who work more than 30 hours per week be provided health coverage. Applebee’s and Olive Garden also scaled back the hours of workers. A handful of colleges have cut hours because of the law, including Palm Beach State College in Florida and New Jersey’s Kean University. Critics say the law is boomeranging on working folks.

“If you want to have reduced work, lower wages and economic stagnation, this is a great way to do it, said Ed Haislmaier, senior research fellow at the Heritage Foundation.

One Regal theater manager told FoxNews.com the move has sparked a wave of resignations from full-time managers who have seen their hours cut by 25 percent or more.

We predicted this long before the election, but no one wanted to listen.  So, these working class folks didn’t pay attention to what the Democrats were doing to them, and now they’re suffering for it.  But that’s OK, I’m sure they’re still blaming Bush anyway!

Elections have consequences.
