The majority of American people are against it. The Thugs leading the Democratic party better realize compromise is their only option. The ball is in Obama's court.

hahahaha it doesn't matter who shuts the govt down the reps will be blamed and they arnt bright enough to realize this. The recipient class will whine and cry the media will chirp its the reps and so it shall be and the dems will benefit.

personally I am ok with shutting the govt down, shut it down for the rest of the year, works for me. we cant afford it anyway.

btw are there any more incompetent politicians than the reps? seriously these guys are a joke.

If we shut it down, we may find our country is a much better place.
post #19 of 80
anybody that thinks shutting down the government is a smart move is not very smart-

the conservative reps are not conservative at all they are big spenders just only want money spent on their own pet projects-they are simply trying to cripple this country so they can say they are the best to fix it-they need to know they lost they are a minority and will keep losing-the rep party should split in two-the more sensible ones vs the tea party ones

Yes, those.

The ones who voted for him, like the Union members, only to find out he pulled the chair out from underthem as they tried to sit down for the mandated coffee break. cwm27.gif Those people.

And others like them.

Nobody want's this bill.

No-bod-y.

ObamaCare's impact on jobs is hotly debated by politicians and economists. Critics say the Affordable Care Act, with its employer mandate to provide health insurance, gives businesses an incentive to cut workers' hours. This year, report after report has rolled in about employers restricting work hours to fewer than 30 per week — the point where the mandate kicks in. Data also point to a record low workweek in low-wage industries.
In the interest of an informed debate, we've compiled a list of job actions with strong proof that ObamaCare's employer mandate is behind cuts to work hours or staffing levels. As of Sept. 18, our ObamaCare scorecard included 301 employers. 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.
We'll continue to update the list, which we encourage you to share and download into a spreadsheet to sort and analyze. If you know of an employer that should be on the list and can provide supporting evidence, please contact IBD at jed.graham@investors.com.

Cleveland Clinic announces job cuts to prepare for Obamacare



By Kim Palmer
CLEVELAND | Wed Sep 18, 2013 5:23pm EDT
(Reuters) - The world-renowned Cleveland Clinic said on Wednesday it would cut jobs and slash five to six percent of its $6 billion annual budget to prepare for President Barack Obama's health reforms.

The clinic, which has treated celebrities and world leaders such as musician Lou Reed, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi and former Olympic gold medal skater Scott Hamilton, did not say how many of its 44,000 employees would be laid off. But a spokeswoman said that $330 million would be cut from its annual budget.

"Some of the initiatives include offering early retirement to 3,000 eligible employees, reducing operational costs, stricter review of filling vacant positions, and lastly workforce reductions," said Eileen Sheil, Executive Director of Corporate Communications for the Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

The clinic is Cleveland's largest employer and the second largest in Ohio after Wal-Mart. It is the largest provider in Ohio of Medicaid health coverage for the poor, the program that will expand to cover uninsured Americans under Obamacare.

"We know we are going to be reimbursed less," under Medicaid, Sheil said.

Cleveland Clinic has almost 100 locations around Ohio employing 3,000 doctors. Its main campus is world renowned for cancer and cardiovascular treatment.

"To prepare for healthcare reform, Cleveland Clinic is transforming the way care is delivered to patients," Sheil said without elaborating.

The clinic's Lerner Research Institute had a total annual research expenditure of $255 million in 2012 and recently announced breakthroughs in creating a breast cancer vaccine, drugs to treat Alzheimer's patients and research into the genetic mutations in prostate cancer.

A 2009 study by the clinic concluded that it accounts for nearly eight percent of the economic output of northeast Ohio.

A key part of Obamacare, officially known as the Affordable Care Act, goes into effect on October 1, when states are supposed to begin offering Americans health insurance options through online exchanges to compare prices.

look on the bright side.........Obama care will create more jobs. As it destroys good jobs (full time with benefits) and creates loads and load of part time (no beneifits and limited hours) jobs. So its all good, more jobs.

First - both parties are a joke. Most politicians are an even bigger joke, well joke is not the right word for it. I'll take the 5th for now on the proper phrasing.

Second - the one thing you can bet on is that whatever law the govt. passes, people (specially companies which have the mucho $ to figure it out & would rather pay double the $ of the tax to lawyers & consultants to avoid the taxes) , will figure out ways to circumvent the laws. In the case of The Affordable Care Act - (Affordable only if your MAGI is pretty friggin low) firms will either cut hours, or dump staff (except senior magt. of course) or increase consultants/ 1099 workers. I'm sure there will be a few other strategies added along the way.

Third - many folks who have saved & have put away a decent amount of $ in IRAs, 401ks etc, will have a rude shock if they think they will be able to retire at 62 due to medical insurance premiums. They will have to push it to 65 & jump on Medicare UNLESS (big IF here with the clowngressmen & senators we have) the lawmakers strip medicare & then who knows when "retirement" will happen for them.

The one thing I truly believe is that unless we change our system so that our govt. has the same benefits we all have we will be continued to get screwed where the sun don't shine. Without vaseline either.

"...Republicans are coming off an election in which they failed to retake the presidency despite a weak economy, failed to retake the Senate even though far more Democratic than Republican seats were at risk, and held the House only through a combination of gerrymandering and the vagaries of districting. Democrats actually won the popular ballot for the House by 1.4 million votes. This is not a party that, by any conceivable standard of legitimacy, has the right to make extreme demands on the president..."
