ACTUAL results of O'Care in town where I might be living

http://www.spencerdailyreporter.com/story/1956006.html

This is one small example in a tiny town. Just imagine this happening at small businesses around the Country, in every small town, in every County, in all 54 ( Rolleyes ) States.

And who will this under-employment/unemployment be blamed on IF it is even reported on?

And why is the town doing this? Unlike the Fed's they must meet an actual budget!

Quote:Due to health care reform, Spencer officials have had to cut back the hours of part-time city employees. Because of the cutbacks, the transfer station will be closed on Sundays, according to Director of Public Works Mark White.
"Where we're at with our part-time people is we are in a monitoring period. Meaning, we monitor their hours from April 1 this year to April 1, 2014," White said. "At that point, if someone is over 30 hours, that would engage the health care insurance part of it."

There are two part-time employees at the transfer station currently, and their hours have been altered to meet the requirements of the reform. The new hours for the transfer station will be 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

"The unfortunate part is that we will have to eliminate Sundays," White said. "Both of these employees have been with the city for a long time. I hate to change the hours, I would rather not."

And NO, we will not be living in town if we get this houseTongue

I read yesterday, too, where in PA they are having to send home tons of Medicare cancer patients without their treatments due to lack of funding. Can you imagine a national level once everyone loses their health care??? We probably will not be able to keep our insurance by next year.

I too am worried about how we will pay for/be able to find a job that offers insurance once we get out to Iowa.

The question is, will bpeople turn on Obama and the Dems nanny state in 2014 as a result, or will they think for themselves?

it's irrelevant anyhow. I've got a better chance at being president than seeing the republicans repealing Obamacare in its entirety, even if they had a super majority.

Every day that Obamacare stays legal is another day that makes it yet more entrenched in our system and more impossible to reverse.

I think the days of traditional insurance are numbered for all but the very richest. Sad

I recently heard an interview with a Doctor that CASH/BARTER will be the way of the future. I will have to look into this and maybe have more farm critters than originally planned.

no doubt about it that the longer it's around, the less likely that it'll get repealed.

the last time the republicans had the clear majority in everything but the supreme court, they expanded medicare part D by an enormous amount, so if that shows you what the likely scenario is regarding health insurance, then we're FUCKED.

Lots of doctors are going cash only now. I mean in a big way. They work less hours, have less employees, have less headaches and MAKE MORE MONEY!

We just got back from FL after visiting with family. My mom, who is 81, said a lot of docs down there are not taking any new medicare patients, and that she will probably be looking at cash payments for care if she needs to visit the doc.

They're also seeing docs retiring early, and a number of the docs here are preparing to do so. If I was an MD within 10 years of retirement age, you better believe I'd consider it, especially since I would be investing heavily toward that end.

Just wait. I see rationing, if not outright denial of care in some fashion. Flood the market with new patients and dry up the supply of docs (there is already a shortage) and it's a no-brainer.
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.
