    Great summary of one of the unintended consequences of Obamacare. I am constantly amazed at the assumptions of all the big-government advocates that think that everyone's behaviour will remain the same no matter how many taxes and government regulations are heaped on them.

    "Raise taxes by X% and we will get more revenues because everyone will still produce or invest the same amount" is a dilusion.

    Headline reads...

    Obamacare gives employers reasons to make part-time workers’

    The reality...

    The ACA gives employers an excuse to make part-time workers.

    There...all better.

    "We have to pass it to know what's in it", Nancy Pelosi. Now that we are finding out what's in it, we are finding that another reason why it is a job killer.

    so you're admitting Obamacare is helping accelerate the death of full-time employment.

    Employers did not need Obama Care to find a reason not to provide health insurance. That has been a fact ad infinitum. We need to solve the problem by comming up with a system that does not rely on employment.
