Irony From Obama’s Part-Time World

Irony From Obama’s Part-Time World
PHOTOS.COM

Full-time employment in America is going away, thanks to Obamacare. The trend extends all the way to people tasked with signing people up for Obamacare. Oh irony of ironies.

Contra Costa County, Calif., politicians hailed the announcement that the county had won the right to run an Obamacare call center as an economic coup that would bring in more than 200 jobs to the area. Seven thousand workers showed up to apply, some of them leaving full-time jobs for the positions originally promoted as full-time. But now the kicker: Half the jobs are part-time with no benefits.

So half the workers tasked with helping Californians sign up for Obamacare are out of luck on healthcare coverage. Their option: Pay the full cost of healthcare from the State exchange at a cost of $600 to $1,200 per month for individual coverage and $1,400 to $2,900 per month for a family. That’s quite a climb for a worker making between $15.33 and $18.63 an hour.

What are the odds most of them voted for Barack Obama… twice?

I've been saying this for awhile in the corporate sector. Of course its all the greedy corporation's fault that there is more part time work than full time. Now, explain this, people!!

I work in a small business where the owner works here full time himself.  In fact the whole area my company is located in is surrounded by small businesses.  Or was, I should say.  There are so many regulations and taxes and now the high cost of Obamacare rising that businesses have had to cut corners just to stay alive.  there are many empty buildings now in this area.  I fault this to the liberal, Democratic administration under our socialist President.

They are getting exactly what they voted for, but I bet they don't make that mistake again! We all know bHocare is a wreck and will help no one.  It's already cause so many to lose their jobs or have their hours cut.

What are the odds that these folks in Northern California voted for Obama twice?

About 100%.

Well think about it... No taxes..no worry about health care..does not the administration see that this is going to create more under the table..black market scenerios?  I feel like this whole country is going corrupt..from the top to the bottom.
