Wegmans, the Rochester, NY based grocer that has previously providing health insurance to its part-time workers will no longer offer that benefit, thanks to Obamacare. Under the Affordable Care Act, part-time employees are not eligible for health insurance subsidies if their employer offers insurance. Wegmans employs roughly 1,433 full-time employees and 4,304 part-time employees in the Buffalo Niagara region. America was warned that this would happen and no one wanted to listen. Instead they wanted to call those folks alarmists. From the outset Obamacare has been a misrepresentation of the plan and now Americans are learning it the hard way.
The Rochester-based grocer that has been continually lauded for providing health insurance to its part-time workers will no longer offer that benefit.
Until recently, the company voluntarily offered health insurance to employees who worked 20 hours per week or more. Companies are required by law to offer health insurance only to full-time employees who work 30 hours or more per week.
Several Wegmans employees confirmed part-time health benefits had been cut and said the company said the decision was related to changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act.
However, part-time employees may actually benefit from Wegmans’ decision, according to Brian Murphy, a partner at Lawley Benefits Group, an insurance brokerage firm in Buffalo.
Michelle Malkin reminds us … Remember when President Barack Obama said to the American people when trying to sell Oabamcare as a good thing and stated, one of the three tenants of Obamacare was that if you like your present insurance you can keep it? Guess what America, HE LIED!!! He stated that if you like your current insurance, you can keep your current insurance. LIES. LIES, AND MORE LIES. This was all part of the ultimate goal of destroying the insrance industry and creating a single payer system.
The Daily Caller calls Obamacare for what it is. Obamacare is a disaster and and it is owned by Barack Hussein Obama.
No, call it what it is: Obamacare.
They don’t want to call it that, as disaster looms, but that’s what it is. It’s called Obamacare. He owns this. It’s not Wegmans’ fault, or the fault of any of the other businesses that are going to suffer. This is all on Obama. And the worse it gets, the more the press will try to cover for him.
