CNS news is reporting Thursday, the Internal Revenue Service warned employers in a new regulatory proposal not to come up with clever schemes to avoid Obamacare's employer health insurance mandate.

The IRS said it would soon issue "anti-abuse rules" to discourage employers from taking advantage of any regulatory loopholes.

Well, ok. You're doing what you need to do. Others are doing what they need to do.

A TV station in Nebraska is reporting hundreds of Wendy's workers are seeing their hours cut back because of President Barack Obama's health care law. Nearly 300 employees at 11 Wendy's locations in the Omaha area will have their hours reduced to 28 hours a week because the franchise owner says he can't afford to pay his employees health care.

An employee told the TV station "It has a huge effect on me and pretty much everybody that I work with." Gary Burdette, vice president of operations for the local franchise, told WOWT-TV that he can't afford to keep the fast-food restaurants open if he has to pay for his employees' health care.

You're going to see a lot more of this going on soon. And the same folks who thought this healthcare monstrosity was good will be affected.

Oh, and by the way let me ask you this.

Anybody taken a good look at your pay stub recently. How's that working out for you?

That's my point of view, what's yours?

So the prostitutes and tax collectors office say don't follow the rules, even if the rules say you can do it, right? Never heard of a law saying you can't obey the law as it is written. Must be some new way of doing things.

Thing with Obamacare is the law of TINSTAAFL. That is 'there is no such thing as a free lunch'. Obamacare is not 'free'. Someone, somewhere, somehow, PAID for it. Usually they pay more than if they had just paid cash. Well you voted in the clowns, so it's a circus now.

I cannot believe that Americans wanted this. "You have to vote this in to see what is in this law." Nancy Pelosi You would not buy this rediculous argument from your children.
If Obama can circumvent Congress. No checks and balances, then America can look forward to a dictatorship. They voted for this and now they will find out just what this guy is all about. He is following the the Communist rules for a revolution right down to the last sentence.

Now we understand the Obama jobs program; for any one job there is now two part-time jobs.
