The Obama administration is pushing back against the Affordable Care Act naysayers.
One day after House Republicans passed legislation to delay enforcement of the health care law's individual mandate, President Obama will take to the airwaves to announce that checks are in the mail for 8.5 million Americans who'll split more than $504 million in rebates from their heath insurance company, thanks to a provision of the health law that penalizes insurers for wasteful spending.

More cash for votes?

“Three Major U.S. Unions … Have Sent A Scathing Open Letter To Democratic Leaders” That ObamaCare Will “Destroy The Foundation Of The 40 Hour Work Week That Is The Backbone Of The Middle Class.”
 
OBAMA! OBAMA! OBA............WAIT ! I thought you said Obamacare would not affect me !

"Union Letter: Obamacare Will ‘Destroy The Very Health and Wellbeing’ of Workers!"

"Dear Leader Reid and Leader Pelosi:

When you and the President sought our support for the Affordable Care Act (ACA), you pledged that if we liked the health plans we have now, we could keep them. Sadly, that promise is under threat. Right now, unless you and the Obama Administration enact an equitable fix, the ACA will shatter not only our hard-earned health benefits, but destroy the foundation of the 40 hour work week that is the backbone of the American middle class."
Time is running out: Congress wrote this law; we voted for you. We have a problem; you need to fix it. The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe. Perverse incentives are already creating nightmare scenarios!"

Guess this proves Liberal Demorats are always the last to figure out, what the rest of us already know !

And if the Unions get waivers, EVERYBODY should get waivers !
 
Seems Obama is lying once again....
A look at some of his claims and how they compare with the facts:
-”Last year, millions of Americans opened letters from their insurance companies. But instead of the usual dread that comes from getting a bill, they were pleasantly surprised with a check. In 2012, 13 million rebates went out, in all 50 states. Another 8.5 (million) rebates are being sent out this summer, averaging around 100 bucks each.”
- After introducing several people who got rebate checks last year: “And this is happening all across the country. And it’s happening because of the Affordable Care Act. Hasn’t been reported on a lot. I bet if you took a poll, most folks wouldn’t know when that check comes in that this was because of Obamacare that they got this extra money in their pockets. But that’s what’s happening.”
-”If they’re (insurers) not spending your premium dollars on your health care – at least 80 percent of it – they’ve got to give you some money back.”

THE FACTS: Just as he did a year ago, Obama made a splashy announcement about rebates that incorporates misleading advertising.
The health care law requires insurance companies that spend too much on administrative expenses to issue rebates to customers. But those customers are often employers that in turn offer insurance to workers and bear the bulk of the costs. In workplace plans, the rebate goes to the employer, which must use it for the company health plan but does not have to pass all or part of it on to the worker. People who buy their own insurance and qualify for a rebate get it directly.
Obama was on solid ground in saying “millions of Americans” got rebate checks last year, but the number was not close to 13 million as he implied.
Of the 12.8 million rebates announced last year, health policy experts estimated 3 million would go directly to the insured. The government didn’t know how many.

CLAIM: “I’m curious, what do opponents of this law think the folks here today should do with the money they were reimbursed? Should they send it back to the insurance companies?”
THE FACTS: Even in that unlikely event, most people could not send it back to insurance companies because the money doesn’t go “in their pockets” and they have no control over what their employers do with it.
—
CLAIM: “In states that are working hard to make sure this law delivers for their people, what we’re seeing is that consumers are getting a hint of how much money they’re potentially going to save because of this law. In states like California, Oregon, Washington, new competition, new choices, market forces are pushing costs down.”
THE FACTS: It is simply not known whether health insurance will become less expensive in those states — or nationally — than it is now, or than it would have been absent the law. And hitches in setting up the new insurance marketplaces called exchanges are not limited to Republican-led states where leaders object to the law, although that political pushback is certainly part of what’s going on.

OBAMA! OBAMA! OBA............WAIT ! I thought you said Obamacare would not affect me !

Just got back from Whole Foods, the butcher says the organic frozen turkey I always buy is no longer available because the producer fired 20 full time workers because of Obama care.

Must be true if the butcher said it.

These stories of cut-backs and hourly reductions will be corrected and or rescended after jan'14.
Any reduction in hours worked or job description attributed to avoidance of benefits is a violation of the ERISA act.
It will become painfully evident to the offenders if they dont correct and treat there employees accordingly.

I for one say punish them to the fullest extent of the law.

The same arguments were made when they enacted social security, "ill go out of business, etc"

Bullshit......run your company, pay like everyone else, and STFU....

Greedy bastards......all of them
