The costs of Obamacare are not just hitting businesses this year–they are also hitting the government, and public employees as well. Virginia, for example, is about to limit part-time employees to 29 hours per week in order to avoid triggering Obamacare’s requirement that employers provide health insurance to those working 30 hours per week or more. The state cannot afford the $110 million annual cost of insurance.

Elsewhere, public institutions are taking similar steps to limit part-time work. In Ohio, Youngstown State University recently announced a 29-hour-per-week part-time limit, and placed employees on notice that they would be fired if they worked more than the maximum.

    Let me get this straight.

    The states are jumping on the ObamaTax bandwagon because they believe it will help defray the cost of healthcare, but they are cutting back on employee hours so they don’t have to partake of ObamaTax.

    Got it.

    I can see the election of 2016 from my front door already where the libs will be running on a platform to repeal/replace Obamacare as Obama exits the national scene.

    @Hotlanta Mike — That may not be too far off the mark. I’ve always said it won’t last more than 5 years. Even brain-dead, knuckle-dragging socialists realize that they can’t buy votes without some type of taxes coming in. And ObamaTax kills both business and jobs.

    When will all those Leftists begin to read and understand the fine print of communism, the part that reads: “‘The Greater Good of the Community’ refers to less than one percent of said Community.”
