Remember when Obama told you, over and over again, that you could keep your insurance under Obamacare.

It was a lie. Obama knew it was a lie.
He knew Obamacare would replace private policies. That was the plan all along.
Wal-MArt announced this week they would end insurance for new hires.
The Huffington Post reported:

Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week, according to a copy of the company’s policy obtained by The Huffington Post. …

Walmart declined to disclose how many of its roughly 1.4 million U.S. workers are vulnerable to losing medical insurance under its new policy. …

Labor and health care experts portrayed Walmart’s decision to exclude workers from its medical plans as an attempt to limit costs while taking advantage of the national health care reform known as Obamacare. Among the key features of Obamacare is an expansion of Medicaid, the taxpayer-financed health insurance program for poor people. Many of the Walmart workers who might be dropped from the company’s health care plans earn so little that they would qualify for the expanded Medicaid program, these experts said.

  1. That’ll sit well. Make $16 billion and can’t afford healthy insurance for your workers.

    No matter. They can now buy insurance on the exchanges. And Wal Mart has shot themselves in the foot.

    Along with Applebees, Olive Garden, Papa John,s, Denny’s.

    Good times watching you right wingers and your heroes implode.

  2. Oh, and I hope you’re right that ObamaCare replaces private policies.

  3. Right wing problem, give me a break. When a worker has such low skills they must make a career working at Wal-Mart, they must realize that they are not worth the $7,500 mandated healthcare program or the $2,000 fine. ObamaCare has now mandate the new standard of 29 hours a week with food stamps and Medicaid. This was want Obama wanted all along and he got it. America is the loser.

  4. Yes, we know King O lied, and half the country, including Mr. Jharp, fell for it!

    “Yes, we know King O lied”

    Lied? Seriously? Hw so?

  6. Road to single-payer! All a part of the plan!

    “Road to single-payer! All a part of the plan!”

    Not in the blue states. They are busy setting up the exchanges that offer consumers their own choice of private insurance.

    Pretty funny how that one bit you wingnuts. Good luck red staters with your federally run insurance.

  8. Entirely foreseeable, of course, as businesses never take on unnecessary costs. Stupid Obama supporters will now deny it, but of course it was always part of the plan to bankrupt private insurers and end up with a single national government insurance on the European model.

    Unfortunately, the Euro-model depended upon the free market system of the US to create new drugs and devices but the cost controls required by government health care will destroy this as well. Welcome the Death Panels, it’s a Brave New World.

  9. jharp. Get a life you fricking moron. Obama intends to bankrupt our country with his Obamacare. It was all a big lie being able to keep your own doctor and your own plan. The guy is a compulsive liar and you need to get your head out of your a%s! I didn’t vote for the scumbag but I’ll bet you did and now all of us will have to suffer through the next four years along with your miserable a%s with the mounting tax debt he’s going to lay on us and the massive regulations he’ll impose through executive orders. I firmly believe he wants to bring the
    U.S. to its knees financially, to third world status, so he can get that third term and become a dictator. The ding-dong wants to consolidate his power over the American people and become a tyrant. But this too shall pass, and I’ll be here along with the silent majority to pick up the pieces
    once the jerk is impeached. Best of luck liberals, we’ll all suffer through this together and then we’ll see how great your socialist utopia works out for ya, ok? In closing jharp, you suck and so do all those that voted for this Chicago thug.

  10. Accepting JHarp’s Blue Model premise; which providers will take the ‘expanded’ Medicare? The same providers that make no money off it as it is and don’t accept it now?

    Or, does OBAMACARE’S rainbow & unicorn clause suddenly make Medicare-Medicaid reimbursements cost effective for medical providers?

  11. Typical from JCrap. Don’t blame the god-damned government for this decision.

    Noooooo. Blame the company for acting in response to the god-damned government.

    You know, dude. I can’t wait until you – and people like you – choke to death on the sh!t you’re shoving down everybody’s throat.

    And I hope you choke on it hard.

    I’m keeping my plan. And doctor. And keeping my 20 something kids on my plan.

    But good luck with your federally run plan. Too funny how that one bit you red state idiots in the ass.

    It was Wal Mart’s decision, jackass. Of course they are the ones to blame.

    Check Costco, Aldi’s, Trader Joe’s and other retailers and see what they are doing about ObamaCare. Hint. Nothing. Business as usual.

  14. He has made the point that there are some things that only the government can do. What he didn’t mention was it could, and would, collapse the private insurance industry so the government would have to step in. That was the purpose of these state exchanges all along. To have a platform in place for a single payer system once the private system was destroyed. Quiet frankly the people that voted for this deserve what they are about to get. They are too stupid to be a free people.

    “What he didn’t mention was it could, and would, collapse the private insurance industry so the government would have to step in.”

    Name one private insurer who has “collapsed” never mind you claimed it would do it the entire industry.

    Get a clue dumbsh*t. Private insurance just got 30 million new customers.

    And if ObamaCare is so unpopular why did voters soundly reject the candidate that promised to repeal it?

    This ought to be good.

    jharp commented:

    Do you even have a clue what Single Payer is? I doubt it because Government Run Exchanges are exactly part of what Single Payer is. Government Run, Government Mandated. Government run healthcare is a joke, ask anyone who has to suffer through the ministrations of the VA system. And such lack of care will only grow worse as the tentacles of government grasp more of the overall US healthcare system.

    In late 2012 getting a routine checkup at a VA facility is a six month and longer runaround, when just a few short years ago it was a month or less.

    What government can give you it can also take away, witness Oops! Sorry Kids… Obama Forgot to Tell College Students He Cut Pell Grants Before Election.

  17. jharp believes businesses exist not to make a profit, but to pay people more than their market worth. Obviously he’s not worth what he wants to be paid

    Yes, I do. And you obviously don’t. Single payer is Medicare. ObamaCare is not Medicare for all.

    ObamCare is private insurance offered to consumers on exchanges set up by each state.

    A state can design it to best fit it’s needs. Except the red states. The red states have opted to let the federal govt set up and operate their exchanges.

    And that is hilarious!

    Good luck redstaters, with your federally run health care exchanges.
