I stopped by Lowes on my way to work this morning to grab a couple things. There's a guy there named Ed, nice guy probably mid 50s, who I'd chat with whenever I stopped in. I hadn't seen him the last couple time I was there; well this morning he’s there and informs me his hours had been cut from 40/week to 15!!! Lost his healthcare benefits, sick and vacation time were chopped. He was pissed and said OBAMACARE was to blame (DUH). So we talked politics (for the first time) and he said a Dem and confessed he voted for Obama. I told him it sucks but unfortunately he only had himself to blame. Went into my whole Obama spiel and didn’t hold back. I said if I were you I pass the word on because you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Guess they'll have to learn the hard way!!!

I was just talking to a good friend about that this morning. I was telling him the Lowes story and told him I truly believe all this Obama shit is going to blow up in the Dems faces. I think it will take enough time to happen where people will still have it fresh in their minds come mid-term election time.

The 40 hour work week will be a thing of the past for anyone that works for a large business and is unskilled labor. The FSA only has themselves to thank as they asked for it. Now they will have to work 2 or more jobs, and buy their own health insurance. I don't feel sorry for them one bit.

So, I can work 50 hours/week, make less money than I did before, and pay more for health insurance?

But wait! The news just had announcements that Lowes was hiring nationally at a higher rate this year due to the IMPROVING ECONOMY AND ADDITIONAL HOME BUILDING. This being a sign of how well the current administration is improving things.

Just one story..there are others

I can't believe that they would just be hiring more people to reduce the hours of current employees to avoid Obamacare cost!

It might cause more Republicans to get elected, but don't count on them getting rid of Obamacare. I remember during the GOP convention, there were several commenting that if Obama got re-elected, Obamacare would be permanent. I think they'd love to control Obamacare in the future, and now they can do that while blaming Obama for putting it into place.

I've personally witnessed this exact scenario play out w/ single mothers. They work as much as they can w/o losing their benefits. They go to school and get degrees, hoping to find a professional enough position that will allow them to get off welfare, but the free healthcare, daycare, food stamps, cash assistance, housing vouchers, etc...make it almost impossible to transition to a full time job and still pay their bills.

They basically need to find a $60k+ job w/ full medical and daycare right off the bat. They do not allow the mothers to get partial benefits in the daycare, housing, and healthcare areas to transition to working. I've seen women crying about this, ashamed to be on welfare, but trapped by it
