It is interesting to me to see that there has been some economic pushback against some of those who would advocate victimizing employees for their own selfish political ideology. Keep this in mind Hobby Lobby, etc..

The list of those firms actively trying to sabotage the ACA in this topic is handy information to post on social networking networks to invite others to boycott them.

The market has spoken?

I find it interesting that the UNIONS are fighting the ObamaCare mandate, and have all been granted waivers for their "Cadillac health care plans." The Longshoremen are disavowing the HC mandate. Heard that a couple months ago. Ditto the Machinists.

ObamaCare Employer Mandate: A List Of Cuts To Work Hours, Jobs

11-5-13

"As of Nov. 5, our ObamaCare scorecard included 363 employers with more than 100 school districts among them. Here's our latest analysis, highlighting ObamaCare's downside for low-wage workers. Recently, we examined Indiana's 10th Amendment challenge to the employer mandate. IBD also explained why the employer mandate will undercut the goals of ObamaCare — affordable, reliable coverage — even in cases when employers don't cut work hours. The ObamaCare list methodology is explained further in our initial coverage; click on the employer names in the list below for links to supporting records, mostly news accounts or official documents."

CBS apologized for its airing of a man MISLEADING people about where he was during the Benghazi debacle. Obama has never specifically apologized for MISLEADING the American people about Obamacare(all he said was that he was sorry people lost their health insurance).

Right to Life of Michigan files lawsuit against HHS birth control mandate

11-5-13

"A Michigan pro-life group is arguing in a new lawsuit that it is unconstitutional for the Obama administration to force it to pay for insurance coverage that funds drugs that can cause exactly what the group is dedicated to fighting – abortion.

Right to Life of Michigan has filed a federal lawsuit against the Obama government's Affordable Care Act, claiming that provisions in the health insurance scheme that would require the organization to provide insurance that covers contraceptives and abortion-causing drugs are a violation of religious freedom and freedom from coerced speech."

D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals rules against HHS mandate for Catholic business owners

11-1-13

" In the newest victory for religious freedom in the U.S. judicial system, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of two Catholic business owners who are fighting the Health & Human Services (HHS) contraceptive, abortifacient, and sterilization mandate on Friday.

The case involved two Ohio brothers, Frank and Phil Gilardi, whom the mandate would force to either violate their consciences or face over $14 million in fines as they run their two businesses in the town of Sidney."

Fight to repeal Obamacare's medical device tax continues for Indiana companies




"But the industry still faces major obstacles. Opponents need to find a way to replace the approximately $30 billion in revenue that the 2.3 percent tax on device purchases is expected to raise over the next decade. And, if the tax is repealed, insurance companies, drug makers and hospitals will clamor for repeal of the new fees and reduction in reimbursements they face."

No blinders, Those that have been in charge of our country and dully elected to represent us are to busy fighting and finger pointing.

Waiting for things to fail is no way to run anything, but then I am not a politician and have to worry about the next election.

Instead of sitting down and resolving the problems with ACA which could have been a win/win for the whole country, the system was tainted.

You would think that those that have been trusted with the power, voice, wisdom, insight would have stepped forward to make sure things went right.

I worked for many upper mgt people that had bad Ideas and I always did my best to correct the flaws.

Eventually you get noticed, trusted, as part of the brain trust, and what you do is no longer thankless.

It is as simple as if you see wrong help make it right.

That's one of many reason we need universal health care rather than the ACA cobbled together to appease insurance companies and others. It needs a lot of work. But it's better than the nothing millions have had for decades while politicians fumbled over and over again trying to pass something. No one seems to mention how many billions we all spend to cover emergency care for the uninsured.

Damn you Airfresh and the horse you rode in on!!

Here is a personal story in my family. My son in love got put to part time and they just plain told him and the other Occupational and Physical Therapists it was due to Obamacare.

Then he got weaned down to a day or two a week. Now he has three jobs going to get hrs. That is not benefits but it is work.

Healthcare is getting around the mandates. Doesn't exactly make it good news for patients. It is not a law suit but it is hours of work loss.Everyone going blind here?

These religious folk want to ban contraception. Plan B prevents the embryo from implantation, which must occur for a woman to be "pregnant". As the religious keep redefining life as earlier and earlier in the reproductive cycle will we soon hear a cry to ban masturbation?

The ACA does not cover abortion inducing pills unless you erroneously think oral contraceptives qualify. The only commonly available oral abortifacient, Plan B, is now over the counter and you pay for it yourself.

Colorado Companies Fight Obamacare’s Abortion-pill Mandate

DENVER—Republican Bill Armstrong left the U.S. Senate 22 years ago, but this week he notched a victory over President Obama’s signature legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

Armstrong’s company, Cherry Creek Mortgage Co. in Greenwood Village, won a preliminary injunction Tuesday from Obamacare’s requirement for employers to provide abortion-inducing drugs as part of their health-care package.

The decision by U.S. District Court Judge R. Brooke Jackson means the Obama administration is now batting less than .100 in its quest to compel private for-profit companies to comply with the health-care law’s abortion-pill mandate, said attorney Michael Norton.

“The court decisions are now 29 to 5 in favor of business owners,” said Norton, who represented Cherry Creek Mortgage as an attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom.

Even so, Norton said the Justice Department continues to challenge businesses that claim a religious exemption from the law based on the faith of the company’s owners.

“There are about 70 lawsuits in this one area, and the Obama administration keeps fighting them to the bitter end,” said Norton, the former U.S. Attorney for Colorado. “You’d think they would try to reach an accommodation of some kind at this point, but they don’t seem to care much what people think.”

Obamacare's Implementation Threatens A Golden Age For The Healing Arts

Seems medical industry is fighting it... at least from what I have heard from people when I have talked to them in dr.'s office and like the above article from Forbe's magazine...

"The administration of health care policy, and ultimately dollars, are also undergoing a generational shift. But this shift is founded on some of the most irrational politics this country has ever seen. Future generations observing the political changes of the past five years will invariably say, “what were they thinking?”

The Affordable Care Act was not the product of any informed or learned group, it was a hastily contrived political farce that was literally cobbled together at the last possible minute. It was never intended to become law — except that it did."

Religious Sisters File First Class-Action Lawsuit Against Controversial HHS Mandate

9-24-13

"Washington, D.C., — Today, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Little Sisters of the Poor, a religious order of Sisters dedicated to caring for the elderly poor (see video). Without relief, the Little Sisters face millions of dollars in IRS fines because they cannot comply with the government’s mandate that they give their employees free access to contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs. The Little Sisters are joined by their religious health benefits providers, Christian Brothers Services and Christian Brothers Employee Benefits Trust, and a class of other religious organizations facing similar fines, in the first class action lawsuit against the Mandate."

An updated list of companies that have reduced workers' hours or even reduced the number of workers, all due directly to the health care act:

The Great Healthcare Bamboozle

"...as the individual mandate and federal exchanges date draws nearer, this is exactly what we see happening. It's in the headlines daily. In the past three weeks alone a slew of corporations -- nationwide employers -- al, have made this very decision. Time Warner Corp., IBM, Home Depot, and Trader Joe's are among the larger, more visible ones. So obvious is the fact of this inevitable corporate shift that even the once hardline pro-Obamacare unions like the AFL-CIO are reading the tea leaves and realizing the ultimate effect this horrible piece of rushed-through legislation is bound to have on families -- on the very labor they rely upon to pay the dues..."

With the rising cost of premiums you are going to see most companies cutting their private insurance and letting people go get it through the exchanges. I am pretty sure this is EXACTLY what they Democrats wanted when they passed this bill so they can keep moving left and nationalizing the entire healthcare system is their final goal.

Idaho Businessman Urges Employers to Write Own ObamaCare Notice

9-19-13

"The DOL has letter templates for employers on its site for those who offer insurance benefits and those who do not. Wayne Hoffman, president of free market think tank Idaho Freedom Foundation, says he decided to write his own letter, instead. He has made his form letter available for download on the Internet.

Hoffman says the DOL letter template is too pro-ObamaCare, and he doesn’t necessarily agree with its wording.

“It extols the virtues of ObamaCare, and this is basically the vehicle to convince people to sign up and not worry about the other possible ramifications of being a government welfare state,” Hoffman says.

Hoffman says the governments’ notification lets workers know that they may be eligible for subsidies, but does not explain fully how these tax credits are being funded. The letters from the DOL states, “you may be eligible for a tax credit that lowers your monthly premium, or a reduction in certain cost-sharing if your employer does not offer coverage to you at all or does not offer coverage that meets certain standards.”

“Who pays for that?” Hoffman says. “It’s being drawn on a Treasury that has no money… someone pays for this, somewhere.” '

Ohio clinic touted by Obama slashes budget due to ObamaCare

9-19-13

"An Ohio clinic that was touted by Obama while he was speaking on health care reform is now blaming ObamaCare after it was forced to cut $330 million from its budget.

Fox 8 reports the Cleveland Clinic, which is the largest employer in Northeast Ohio with about 39,000 workers in the region, announced the cuts to its 2014 budget at a meeting Wednesday.

A spokeswoman for the clinic tells Fox News the clinic is being forced to cut back to prepare for increased costs and decreased revenue under the health care reform law."

"Billions" of dollars have been spent misinforming the American people...Enlighten everyone Mr. President... to date health care has risen instead of fallen... Is that so it will fall later on???

And supporters are now opposed to it... Is that because it's too good???

Please explain Mr. President...

Want ObamaCare to work? Abolish ALL exemptions from it. If you are an American, you're in it. Otherwise too many "healthy" people will "opt out" and pay the penalty because it's cheaper than the insurance.

It was conceived and written by big healthcare to benefit big healthcare. Unfortunately, even the politicians pushing it didn't read it until after they'd signed it. Now we're all paying MORE than we were and big healthcare is the beneficiary.

This article says "Liberals Turn on 0bamaCare" but it should be titled "Big Labor Turns On 0bamaCare"

"It’s noteworthy how exercised Big Labor has become over the imposition of ObamaCare, which will tax and thereby wreck generous health-care plans they have negotiated (and in some cases struck over) for decades.

It is as if labor bosses just figured out how rotten ObamaCare is for their members."

They are finally getting a clue.

In order for the government to do what the unions want they would have to allow special deal for people who are members of a specific group. In other words if you join our group and remain in good standing the government will give you something I return. I would have to defer to others on this but if I’m not mistaken I believe that would be a violation of several laws and possible the equal protection clause of the constitution.

It now seems that Obama has turned his back on the Unions. He got their supports when he needed it and because no one read the law before we passed it to see what was in it the unions didn’t relies that they were killing their own healthcare and giving up a major source of their power over the American worker.

Obamacare is now the law of the land and the Unions have decided they don’t like it and want to get special treatment or the bill repealed.

Ave Maria University Files Second Lawsuit Against HHS Mandate

8-30-13

"A Florida Catholic academic institute has filed a second lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services' abortion-drug "accommodation."

Ave Maria University, a recently founded institute located in Naples, filed the suit Thursday in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Ft. Myers Division.

"The University's sincere religious beliefs forbid it from facilitating, participating in, paying for, training others to engage in, or otherwise supporting contraception, sterilization, or abortion," reads the suit in part."
