Affordable Care Act Helping Small Businesses [Debbie Wasserman Schultz Continues the Big Lie]
Debbie Downer's Office ^ | 3/26/2012 | Some hack in Downer Debbie's office

Posted on 03/28/2012 10:48:03 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Rep. Wasserman Schultz met Monday with a small business owner to talk about how the Affordable Care Act has benefitted her employees

Pembroke Pines, Fla. – The game-changing health care law, the Affordable Health Care Act, passed by Congress and signed by the President two years ago, marks a historic shift in our country. This law is already giving American families and small businesses more control over their health care by reducing costs, increasing choice, and instituting common-sense rules.

On Monday, March 26, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-20) met with employees at the GBS Group, a consulting firm for small and medium businesses in the Hispanic market, to talk about how the Affordable Care Act has helped employees of the business.

Before health care reform, GBS group was not able to offer health insurance to its employees. Now thanks to the tax credits in the Affordable Care Act, GBS group can offer insurance to all 21 employees. One of those employees, Loredana Ramirez, went without health insurance until the company offered it in 2010. She talked about how she lived on a hope and a prayer that she wouldn’t get sick because she couldn’t afford medical care without insurance coverage, and the difference in her life now that she has it.

Friday marked the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act becoming law, and on Monday, the Supreme Court began hearing its biggest case in decades involving the Affordable Care Act.

Can you smell the fail?

Notice Debbie Downer went to a business that caters to Hispanics. I wonder if she is aware a Hispanic Democrat shot the unarmed, Skittle carrying Trayvon Martin.

Every time I see a news report or read an article that features DWS I know all she will be spewing will be Lies - the Dem Talking points for that day! It is a laugh - but does also drives ones BP and language where it should not go. Despicable Wasserman Schults.

Well just darned. GBS could have laid off one of the employees and had enough money left over to buy everybody insurance.

Debs is telling us this is another one of the million jobs Obama "saved' with an adroit subsidy just in time.

Yep, that’s the best!

I also like the remark someone made that if you turned her upside-down, she’d probably make a pretty decent toilet brush.

I live in her greasyness’s heavily-gerry-mandered district.

DWS ran three times unopposed.

In 2010 her first opponent ran against her. Karen Harrington got 25k votes to dws’s 40k. YES there are 40,000 MORONS who voted for her. I’m surrounded by IDIOTS.

For some unknown reason, I constantly confuse “Debbie Downer” with the other one.

If obamacare is slapped down, I’m wondering if we’ll have an economic boom of businesses coming back to life.

Curly Top Wasserman-Schultz is beginning to sound like Baghdad Bob, Saddam Hussan’s propaganda mouthpiece. Perhaps Curly Top needs a uniform and a beret.

She’s the kind of idiot that would try to sell sparkers in a national forest at the scene of a forest fire.

How exactly is forcing companies to pay more for something they don't want helping them?

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought none of that has kicked in yet.

Lets see here - the “big” tax credit will only apply if average wages are less than 50 grand per year and you have less than 25 FTE’s.

So the consulting firm pays low wages and probably offers a very high deductible health plan which keeps them just at the limit to qualify. So maybe their credit amounts to 10 grand - which probably means the health plan they get costs the company about 200 bucks a month per employee and covers hardly nothing.

Here are the rules: http://www.irs.gov/newsroom/article/0,,id=223666,00.html

A mandate is merely a dictate. Thus, if we are dictated to, do we then live under a Dictatorship?

If our freedom of choice is taken from us by the dictates of a hostile Federal government, then what Liberty do we have left?

Not before Jan 20, 2013, when a Republican controlled Congress & a Republican controlled White House are sworn into office.

Barry will continue to be very dangerous, along with his cohorts, Pelosi and Reid, etc, until they are gone for good.

she is one of the most physically repulsive humans I have ever seen. Just a nasty person inside and out. She has a face that looks like Monte Burns of the Simpsons, oly worse because it’s real. Can’t the democrats find someone less repulsive to be a spokesreptile?
