Craigslist Ad Shows Obamacare Hitting Youth Voter Like a Club

This Craigslist ad shows reality is hitting a young Obama voter right in the wallet –
Here’s a Craigslist poster that’s clearly not very happy with Barack Obama, who he says he voted for.

Here is his posting… with a couple of minor edits:

What Obamacare did for me

I thought it would be great, free health insurance, then I got a job. Boss says 28 hours a week is all they are offering now because over 30 requires insurance. Great, 30% pay cut right off the bat. But it gets better. My 28 hour week gives me about $18,000 a year which is too much for any government insurance. So now by law I have to buy my own ($5000) or pay a fine. I’m f**ked and every year the fine goes up. So what I thought was a sweet deal turned into an a** f**king. Thanks Obama, I wonder how many people like me turn 27 and find out you screwed us?

    That little game can be played both ways. Time for a few business owners to chime in, and tell their horror stories.

    Don’t worry, Obama will probably drop the necessary hours of employment down for, you and then your employer can drop your hours down even more. Then Obama will force all employers to pay for their employees’ insurance regardless of hours, and then the businesses will close, and you won’t have a job. Isn’t socialism grand!

  • leila butler

    obama does care and wants you to be happy. Think of the collective and fight the evil 1%. Faux news and the Rethuligcans are making things hard for the best president of all time. Your health care will be vastly improved. The government knows what is best. Watch the truth by watching great media types like rachel maddow and chris matthews. And you should blame your boss for sodomizing you with fewer hours and meager pay. Fight the capitalist pigs!!

  • It was never necessary to even discuss the particulars of this legislation farther than the simplest aspects of it. Anybody who believed that a government program was going to reduce costs and make something ( Affordable ), was primarily concerned with the well-being of the citizen’s ( Health ) and that the government actually ( Cares ) about anyone is too mentally feeble to be allowed to vote. It was allows about control of the populace and the creation of another slop trough of mad money to buy votes with after these same politicians have spent years emptying the books of SSI dollars.

    Unfortunately, the parents of the morons did a horrendous job of preparing them for the world – the REAL world and not the bubble they have lived in heir entire lives.

    So, we all pay the price for the self-centered pampered neophytes and their lack narcissist parents.

    Anyone who bothered to pay attention – knew ObamaCare was going to destroy commerce, jobs and healthcare.

    Maye someone will mention that to John Roberts.

    Because these people were lied to. Having said that, I think people should be more politically aware, and have only themselves to blame. But it’s not that easy to arrive at the truth when the MBM is in the tank for a progressive agenda. I see no value in denigrating someone who is working.

    I was just reading that after less than 4 years,
    Obama has been rated the 4th best president EVER:

    Reagan and 9 others tied for first, 15 presidents tied for second, and 18 other presidents tied for third. Obama came in fourth.


    But it is just the beginning. Ask Russians and the Chinese how it ends.

  • In a way I do feel bad for people like this guy. I’m sure he did try to learn about Obamacare
    prior to it’s passing but all the info he got was lies and propaganda. His biggest mistake was assuming the media would do it’s job. Oh, well.

    Clearly the kid’s white, because only a racist would call Obamacare anything but the World’s Greatest Achievement.

    Furthermore, only a white kid would settle for a job making that little money. Blacks are either graduating from the top professional schools and being given exclusive and elite jobs, or else they’re not working and making more per year through government handouts.

    to an Obamnation:

    Where Illegals are held up higher then natural American Citizens
    Where Welfare and Gov’t Handouts are deemed more important than productive workers
    Where Progressive Libtards destroy the fabric of culture
    Where Leftist Judges usurp the Constitution with Laws from the bench

    And where a massive debt piles up each and every hour of each and every day. . .stealing from future generations. . .

    27 years old, which means he just had a birthday and was no longer eligible to be on his mama’s insurance policy. Shame that all these ignorant college kids won’t REALLY feel the pain of the reality of the Obamanation they voted for for a few more years, til they have to buy their own health insurance… they’re extra screwed cause their advanced degrees in women’s studies and French poetry means the only jobs they’ll be able to find are low-paying jobs where their hours will be capped at 28 hrs a week cause of the Obamacare mandate. Oh but wait! We’re about to legalize 11 MILLION people so that overnight, just like that *snap* there will be even MORE people in the workforce, competing for the few jobs available! Yeah buddy, imagine how the unemployment rate will skyrocket then! Think you’re having a hard time finding a job NOW, little boy? You just wait! Yeah kiddie, you have fun reaping all the benefits and rewards you earned by voting for the COOL GUY! *giggle, snort*

    #54 espresso logic creep rethuglican…you is a racist!! bioya, mf’er! First much of our problems started with bush who as you know was elected by the supreme court of racists to thwart al gore who is still trying to save us from global warming. Bush started the wars to make money for halliburton and fellow war criminal cheney. Crooks like them and mitt roney get rich off the backs of the proletariat. Btw, as far as being a retard to you, I’ll have you know I have a PhD in Medieval studies and belong to mensa. What will help this country is GOP getting out of way of the Greatest President ever Obama and forgetting about debt limit BS. Just ask Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman. We can print more money and raises the minimum wage to a decent level. Every one deserves at least $40,000 a year if single and a decent place to live and free education and health care. IF you thieves only paid your fair share in taxes. Blacque Quack Shellaque sounds like a race traitor uncle tom and forgets that blacks suffered slavery and are still abused through the criminal system. Everyone who is minority deserves to be freed from incarceration. More money is needed for the schools. Teachers should be paid as well as athletes or doctors, as they are in highly rated Norway schools. A few people hold the wealth and one very easy way to equalize things, is just confiscate much of the inherited wealth which they didn’t even earn. Those who don’t get it need to be taught what is right. The ordinary redneck white man hicks have to give up their guns forthwith too. Seize the assets of crooks like the catholic church which has untold wealth sitting idle. Ditto for Romeny’s Mormon holy rollers buffoons.

  • Hera

    I have a hard time feeling sorry for this person. This is probably someone who voted for Obama thinking he would get free health care paid for by the “rich”. He’s just now discovering there’s no such thing as a free lunch. Welcome to the real world.

    at least with the time-off he has now he can go back into his parents basement and have gay sex with union thugs for those lost hrs he’s losing from work (instead of being paid). maybe he can start an underground prostitution ring or he can get an STD and die before he has to pay $5000 for insurance or has to pay those tax-fines.

    I’ll bet Mr. 3575925425 will vote a straight socialist ticket in 2014 and wonder why ObamaTax is still screwing him. In 2016 he’ll be masturbating in the voting booth while he votes another straight socialist ticket. The democrats will have a majority in the House and Senate and have the presidency too and ObamaTax will be expanded. And he will have no idea why his life is so miserable and why he is so poor.

    It really is a pity that stupid isn’t painful. At least the prescription pain killers would be cheap under ObamaTax.

    You are 27 and this is your first job? And.. you are 27 and you didn’t investigate obamacares directives? the uninformed deserve what they get.


    If he were here now I would have this to say to him:
    Dear low information, self-serving, narcicistic voter:
    How dare you complain that you have to pay something you didn’t count on, but thought people other than yourself should. Were you to study worthwhile history (information not intended to make you despise your Founding Fathers, white Europeans, and Christians), you might have come across a little quip by a brilliant Brit, Margaret Thatcher, who pointed out the inherent problem with socialism, “eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

    You chose to cast a vote for a politician who promised to steal from me (and those like me) and give some of the loot to you so long as you vote for them. I truly wonder how your elder relatives would have felt hitting the beaches of Normandy, Iwo Jima, Guadalcanal, and other like places had they known how you and your generation intended to squander their sacrifices.

    You are a prime reason why we are on the verge of collapse.

    Thanks again. Get a second and perhaps a third job and quit complaining. After all, you voted for marxism.

  • BrumaShave

    “Thanks Obama, I wonder how many people like me turn 27 and find out you screwed us?”

    Sorry to tell you, fella, Obama scr*wed the whole nation, not just folks turning 27; the whole ObamaCare shtick was about seizing control over everybody’s life literally, and ruining our health care system in the process.

    You are obviously sadder; I hope you are wiser.

  • BrumaShave

    Hey, I notice our “shadow” has temporarily disappeared.

    I wonder if he is 27 yet; he acts pretty sophomoric.

  • Saltare

    Actually his employer’s at fault. They would have to pay for insurance if he had 30 or more hours so they’re not giving it to him. So instead of blaming his employer for shorting him in order to save themselves money (and in turn getting richer off his labor) he goes the easy route. Saying that the post on CL is true (which I highly doubt) the “kid” now has $18,000 more a year than when his ass was sitting on his parent’s couch. Probably was taking government assistance while he wasn’t working. Wouldn’t surprise me.

  • he thought it was going to be a sweet deal, free health insurance. what he really means was that he thought
    the politicans were going to make someone else pay for his health insurance. well pal nothing the politicans provide is free, some one has to work to pay for it. you were going to be prefectly allright with that, so to damn bad for you. thats what happens to you when you pay attention to the democratic-party media complex.

  • #62…the biggest government contractor of the obama administration is halliburton.

  • FMB42

    Why is the Obama Care employer coverage mandate exempt for those who work 30 or less hours a week?

    Shouldn’t everyone be covered by this Obama Care mandate regardless of how many hours a week they work?

    Why would Obama, and his pocket Dem/Rep politicians and Supreme Court pass the Obama Care employer coverage mandate in a way that would allow this?

    Could it be that Obama wants to boost his employment numbers by enforcing a law (i.e. Obama Care) that promotes an increase in part-time jobs while, at the same time, reducing full-time jobs?

  • In conjunction with decades of living beyond our means, this lesson will likely destroy his generation’s future hope of any level of prosperity. A VERY expensive lesson indeed.

  • PaddyCakes

    Ha! Under Bush, I MUST carry and pay for Part D drug insurance, which cost about $400 per year. It is a violation of law if I attempt to cancel the Part D insurance; however, if I am able to cancel it, when I want it again later i life, I will be fined and pay a super premium for Part D insurance. My yearly prescription sue does not total anywhere near what it cost me to have the insurance, so it is PURE profit for Big Pharma. Thanks, Mr. Bush. The power of big money goes a long way with politicians.

    This was a BS story yesterday and is still one today. Section 1401 of PPACA discusses subsidies. There are several health care calculators out there if reading the law is too dry. This person will pay around $25 to $35 every 2 weeks for healthcare for himself.

If doctors were not so greedy the insurance would cost less and if people stop eating rich foods, smoking, boozing and whoring then the world would be a much better place.
