    How kind of WalMart

    I had no idea people were forced to work at Walmart. The health care law was poorly written with no debate or input from those concerned. If you have a problem with a law perhaps you should take it up with those that wrote and enacted it.

    • Hey that's a great idea mr.phil2u. Seeing how this is a forum to discuss AGNC and all.
      At least someone around here has some common sense. : )

      "If you have a problem with a law perhaps you should take it up with those that wrote and enacted it."

    • Since the law has little impact on me, other than it will drive up my health care cost a little, or maybe more than a little, there is no huge reason for me to make an effort to take up either side of the cause. I will allow all those people who had 40 hour a week jobs and who get their hours slashed to 30 hours a week to lobby for their own behalf. My guess is 2014 will be an interesting year for those of us who like to monitor these politcal activities. It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. My guess is that most of the people who thought they were going to get health care will only find themselves with part time work and will have to work two jobs now instead of one if 30 hours doesn't provide them with enough money to pay the bills. But we shall see. But I think I am right about this because California passed a similar law years ago and now there are few full time jobs in California for low skilled workers. Even the baggage handlers at the airport are part time employees. Why would this play out any different than it has in the past? Just because Obama had his hands on it? I don't think so. If they did not want this to happen then they should have eliminated part time work as an excluded category. But they didn't so my guess is that a lot of people are going to have a rude awakening in 2014 and they aren't going to be happy about it. As they say, reality sux. This is pretty obvious stuff. I really don’t see why Washington is always having to learn by the school of hard knocks. I guess it just goes to show what quality of people government attracts, which appears to be the dregs. I just don’t see why this wasn’t obvious to them.
