The Obama administration is prodding people to become whistleblowers for ObamaCare. Of course not to blow the whistle on the government and those who created this monstrosity that no one can figure out. No, to blow the whistle on small businesses who can then be fined quickly. This way they can be run out of business even more quickly then ever.
Sometimes you really can't make this crap up:
The Affordable Care Act sets up a new arena of whistleblower protections for employees who complain that their company-provided health insurance doesnt do what its supposed to do.
On Friday, the Labor Departments Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an interim final rule in the Federal Register that establishes procedures and time frames for handling retaliation complaints filed under Section 1558 of the Affordable Care Act.
For example, if an employer-sponsored health plan doesnt provide an employee with no-cost contraceptives or sterilization or any other essential health benefit that employee may complain without fear of retaliation.
Whistleblower complaints may also arise in cases where a large employer does not offer a health insurance plan that meets certain levels of affordability and minimum value. In those cases, the company may be penalized if any of its full-time employees receives a tax credit or subsidy through an Obamacare insurance exchange. That could create an incentive for an employer to fire or lay off an employee.
This is a perfect example of Obama and those who support him. Business owners are all greedy rich aholes anyways who owe the employee everything, including a one size fits all health insurance plan.
This appeals to the social justice crowd who invariably believes those who own businesses being as they are driven by profit are greedy bastards who owe the employees a kind of de facto control over the company, a kind of rise of the proletariat through government-aided guidance that these poor misguided class warriors dont recognize will end with the closing of businesses, the loss of jobs, more former private-sector employees on the dole, and a culture of dependence on government that carries along with it the fitting destruction of private sector industry.
For the Democrats, who rely for their electoral power on slaves who believe theyre still free and whose vitriol theyve been conditioned to point at the capitalist system this is of course a feature and not a bug.
We are already witnesses businesses converting a full-time employee to a part-timer to stay in business. We shall see much more of this, along with businesses closing altogether because of this mess:
ObamaCare will act as a neutron bomb on employment in the U.S. for two basic reasons:
1. It is immensely complex, and already-marginalized small business owners will shed employees or simply close rather than have to figure out what all those thousands of pages of regulations and statutes mean to the survival of their business.
2. ObamaCare's primary mechanisms of lowering costs, insurance exchanges and technocratic selection of "best care practices," do nothing to change the systemic flaws of sickcare.
Many other commentators have already outlined how ObamaCare is driving employers to replace fulltime workers with part-time workers to avoid having to pay outrageously expensive monthly healthcare insurance premiums. In this sense, the ObamaCare neutron bomb is already decimating fulltime employment.

Evil, selfish job-creators.
email received this evening - I hope it’s accurate;)
ABC finally asked the question:
“Mr. PRESIDENT WILL YOU AND YOUR FAMILY GIVE UP YOUR CURRENT HEALTH CARE PROGRAM AND JOIN THE NEW ‘UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE PROGRAM’ THAT THE REST OF US WILL BE ON?”
THERE WAS A STONEY SILENCE AS OBAMA IGNORED THE QUESTION AND CHOSE NOT TO ANSWER IT!
IN ADDITION, A NUMBER OF SENATORS WERE ASKED THE SAME QUESTION AND THEIR RESPONSE WAS. “WE WILL THINK ABOUT IT.” AND THEY DID. IT WAS ANNOUNCED TODAY ON THE NEWS THAT THE “KENNEDY HEALTH CARE BILL” WAS WRITTEN INTO THE NEW HEALTH CARE REFORM INITIATIVE ENSURING THAT CONGRESS WILL BE 100% EXEMPT !
SO, THIS GREAT NEW HEALTH CARE PLAN THAT IS GOOD FOR YOU AND I... IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR OBAMA, HIS FAMILY OR CONGRESS...??
WE (THE AMERICAN PUBLIC) NEED TO STOP THIS PROPOSED DEBACLE ASAP! THIS IS TOTALLY WRONG! PERSONALLY, I CAN ONLY ACCEPT A UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE OVERHAUL THAT EXTENDS TO EVERYONE... NOT JUST US LOWLY CITIZENS.... WHILE THE WASHINGTON “ELITE” KEEP RIGHT ON WITH THEIR GOLD-PLATED HEALTH CARE COVERAGE’S.
If you don’t pass this around, may you enjoy his Plan!
WHAT? The Republic has a CONSTITUTION?
Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ..
Imagine what we could do if everybody passed this around
I AM SOOO GLAD I GOT RID OF ALL EMPLOYEES AND SUBBED OUT< DOWNSIZED:
from Dec 2008:
Big Brother’s ‘a-gonna be ‘a wat’chin YOU.
Pass this around instead:
You are entitled to any privilege they give to any other citizen.
Slaughter-House cases. 83 U.S. 36., (1872)
The government cannot take a right from you and give it to another. Part of the case, was New Orleans had set up a large area to slaughter farm animals. This gave the corporation the exclusive right to slaughter all farm animals in the parishes of Orleans, Jefferson, and St. Bernard. And a land owner could not sell animals or produce from his private land.
This is a 5th and 14th Amendment and Article 1 section 10 VIOLATION. “No Title of Nobility shall be granted”
GIBBONS v. OGDEN, 22 U.S. 1 (1824)
The acts of the Legislature of the State of New York, granting to Robert R. Livingston and Robert Fulton the exclusive navigation of all the waters within the jurisdiction of that, with boats moved by fire or steam, for a term of years.
Lakewood v. Plain Dealer Publishing Co,. 486 U.S. 750 (1988)
Here we find another pick and choose as to who will get the favors of the government.
Columbia v. Omni Outdoor Advertising 449 U.S. (1991)
The city fathers wanted to have one sign company to put up all of the signs in the City of Columbia, South Carolina. So this is another loss for the great leaders of our local government. They don’t seem to realize our U. S. Constitution is for equality, and not a buddy system.
Leathers v. Medlock,. 499 U.S. 439 (1991)
Another case of playing favorites. This one is about taxes. It seems that the state of Arkansas wanted to charge Mr. Medlock taxes on his cable television subscribers and not on newspapers and magazines. They all three entertain, give out news, do advertising so they should pay equal taxes. Newspapers and magazines could do good for elected officials. There is no lawful law that allows discrimination.
