Yay ObamaCare, NJ Businesses Again See Double-Digit Health Insurance Increases

  Nineteen times Barack Obama promised to lower our health insurance premiums by as much as $2500 per year. We’re still waiting. Small businesses continue to see double-digit increases in the cost of employee health care, according to a survey released by a major business group Thursday, which found 87 percent of those polled provide coverage. The survey by New Jersey Business and Industry Association found that health-care costs rose by 24 percent in the last year for businesses that have between one and 24 employees, and by 16 percent for those with between 25 and 49 workers. Employers on […]

Here’s Why ObamaCare Cost 30,000 Wal-Mart Part-Timers Their Health Insurance Coverage

Hat/Tip to Jason Pye at Freedom Works. Looks like the rising costs of ObamaCare are once again, taking their toll on the average American who works for a weekly paycheck, trying to support their family. Wal-Mart has joined the ranks of employers that have been forced to drop health insurance for some 30,000 part-time workers, according to a report from the Associated Press. The big box retailer — which has struggled with sales and recently lowered its profit forecast for the year — made the move to adjust to rising healthcare costs under ObamaCare: The announcement comes after Wal-Mart said […]

More Americans Than Ever Say ObamaCare is Harming Them, and Obama is a Failure, Too

Who you gonna believe, Obamabot propaganda, or your own lyin’ eyes? Over a quarter of Americans now say Obamacare has personally hurt them, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. Twenty-seven percent of Americans say the health-care law has hurt them, up from 19 percent in May. The percentage saying Obamacare has helped still lags behind, up to 16 percent from 10 percent earlier this year. Count me among the 27%. Obamacare is costing my family more money, for crappier coverage, with daily hassles over formerly routine stuff like prescription renewals. My doctor hates it too. Apparently that’s not a […]

Study finds ObamaCare will NOT reduce number of uninsured: Thanks alot Barack!

  Hat/Tip I Hate The Media. So we screwed up the greatest healthcare system in the world, spent billions of dollars on websites that don’t work, ruined millions of health insurance polices for hardworking Americans – killing a few people in the process, by the way – and legislated the largest single tax increase in world history… for what?  From the National and State Impact Analyses of the ACA on Insurance Prices and Enrollment Beyond 2014: Nationally, we estimate an initial decrease in the uninsured with greater use of the private health insurance subsidies, but over time health plan prices […]

Al-Qaeda Franchise Owner Discouraged by Government Regulations

I just want to kill the infidel. Why must I provide health insurance? For as long as he could remember, Abdul wanted to run his own business. “I wanted to work for myself and make a living doing it.” he said. And I also wanted to kill the infidel. Hey, who wouldn’t.  And I’m good at killing the infidel.  Granted, not as good as I am at boy love, but pretty damn good nevertheless. At the age of 20 Abdul opened his first al-Qaeda franchise, offering out of work Muslims the chance to kill infidels, as well as deliver delicious […]

The Slacker Presidency, and the Curse of ObamaCare

“Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job.” – Nancy Pelosi “Obamacare lets people keep their health insurance even if they quit their job to master iambic pentameter.” – Jonah Goldberg “Now that the Congressional Budget Office has confirmed that ObamaCare is the jobs-killer conservatives always claimed it was, the White House has put the spin machine into overdrive. Since they can no longer deny the truth, they’ve decided to convince you that destroying the workforce is a good thing.” – Robert Laurie “The Democrats […]

ObamaCare Damage: Universal Studios Part-Time Workers to Lose Coverage

It seem that the part-time workers at Universal Studios Orlando are going to lose their insurance at the end of next year.  The culprit?  ObamaCare!   The Lid has more… Universal Studios Orlando provides limited health insurance for it’s part time workers…or at least will until the end of the year. The theme park announced that it will stop offering medical insurance to part-time employees beginning next year, a move the resort says has been forced by Obamacare. Universal currently offers part-time workers a limited insurance plan that has low premiums but also caps the payout of benefits. For instance, Universal’s […]

Elections have Consequences: Health Insurance Premiums to Hit $20,000?

A reliable axiom would be that government intervention makes thing far more expensive.  Cars, gasoline, and pretty much anything that the government controls or regulates become more expensive.  And with the re-election of Barak Obama, a lot of democrat voters just priced themselves out of the health insurance market.  CNS News has why… Under Obamacare, Americans will be required to buy health insurance or pay a penalty to the IRS. The IRS’s assumption that the cheapest plan for a family will cost $20,000 per year is found in examples the IRS gives to help people understand how to calculate the […]

Happy Year 2013! We’re in Trouble!

I’d like to take the moment to wish everyone a Happy New Year.  However, I might want to add that my wish is by no means a guarantee.  I fear that 2013 is going to be a terrible year, and it will result in hardships of all sorts.  Here are some of my reasons… 1.  Fiscal Cliff jumping:  It appears that we are going to go off  the “fiscal cliff.”  What does that mean?  It means that Obama’s negotiating position was “give me exactly what I want, and nothing less.”  The members of the stupid party, however, made many concessions, […]

ObamaCare Damage: So you Thought You Could Keep Your Plan?

Remember when President Obama promised all of us that if we like our current health care plans, we could keep them? Let’s refresh our memories… Well, like most, if not all, of Obama’s promises.  The real answer seems to be, “not so much.”  We’ve already covered that doctors are changing their practices, causing patients to find another.  We’ve also covered that companies, both large and small, are considering dropping health care coverage all together. Now, we see that a majority of current health care plans will not pass muster under ObamaCare.  For background, here is an excerpt from Investors.com Internal […]
