Adding to a devastating CBO report of how Obamacare could damage the economy, a Duke University survey of top companies found that 44 percent are considering reducing health benefits to current employees due to Obamacare, confirming the fears of millions of American workers.
In its December survey of chief financial officers around the country, Duke also found that nearly half are “reluctant to hire full-time employers because of the Affordable Care Act.”
And 40 percent are considering shifting to part-time workers and others will hire fewer workers of fire some to avoid the costs of the program.
What’s more, they said in the study, “One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law.”
Without the law, the CFOs told Duke that they would hire more full-time workers.
Looks like Obama is one of those loony Christians betty so hates or he is lying and is a phony like those Duck Dynasty guys betty so hates.
What's more disturbing are people like you who want to arm every office in the gov't while taking guns away from law abiding citizens. Speak of loons running the asylum.....

Looks like the bettyuncs are ready to sick them postal workers on the darned middle class who keeps whining about paying more taxes. That will show them to get in line and be poor and dependent on the great federal gov't for their stipends of food and cable TV. Maybe bettyunc will get a few rounds for the guns they own.
LOL....it's just some data out there betty. Because not everyone will bow to your man god does not make them insane. I read your insane tripe (and boy howdy....you are a loon) so why not others?
Avalere Health CEO Dan Mendelson said Thursday that the administration may let policyholders keep that coverage for an additional three years, stressing that no decision has been made. Policymakers are waiting to see what rate hikes health insurers plan for the insurance exchanges that are key to the overhaul's coverage expansions.
"The administration is entertaining a range of options to ensure that this individual market has stability to it and that would be one thing that they could do," he said.
Avalere Health is a market analysis firm, but Mendelson said his company was not advising the administration on exchange policy. He said he has had informal discussions with administration officials about the extension, but he didn't identify them.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Human Services, Joanne Peters, said "We are continuing to examine all sorts of ways to provide consumers with more choices and to smooth the transition as we implement the law."
"Actually, the only reason why Obama is suddenly willing to compromise over every aspect of his "crowning achievement" is that finally its tactical, and strategic failure has become clear for all to see. So it would be best to enact it piecemeal, and claim success for whatever legacy aspects of the system are working, while blasting everything that his unprecedentedly complicated, centrally-planned contraption has unleashed.
Finally, why three years? Because by then Obama will be gone (absent some very radical changes to presidential term rules), and Obamacare will be someone else's problem."
betty reminds me of those crazy whacked out christian snake handlers.....believes so hard in her cause she can't fathom something bad will happen.
Not when it is taxed off the backs of those left working. You think everything is free...you need to wake up. Oh wait....your persistently drunk on your cult-aide. Never-mind.
Define 'richest' Americans. The 1% don't feel a thing from this. You are tapping the middle class out but then again that is part of the plan. You should get new talking points.
You are an optimist. The rich Rep CEO's want the cheap labor and the bettyuncs Dems want the voters. Neither group cares for this country or its citizens and only look to short term gains that benefits their power over the people. They are not capable of thinking more than 4 years in advance of what it will do to the country. Both are masters of kicking the can down the road and hoping they can get someone else to pick up the tab. It will pass....
Once amnesty passes the Feds will finally realize their dream of wiping out the middle class and can rejoice that there will only be the poor and the masters.
Word is Foxconn was looking into setting up in THE US. Perhaps we have hit wage parity with China.
QE has been nothing more than a tax on the middle class to own new debt while transferring the wealth to the Wall St. big boys. The fact of the matter is the 1% of the 1% have rigged the system as they have always done since they own the politicians and they make the rules.
Yes there is. I've beaten you senseless with it so often you have finally become wise enough to run away.
Obama says he is a Christian. He says he feels Christ and is led by Christ.
So your man god, Obama, says he believes in Christ....feels Christ yet you contend that he really does not believe and just says those things to 'fool' people. I'd pretty much consider that about as psycho as anything else. You consider it normal but then again you are a loon.
