ObamaCare mandate could lead Washington grocery workers to picket line

Every one of those stupid biatches voted for Zero and supported Zerocare.  And, even before it was passed, we told them this would happen. 

Some 30,000 grocery store workers in the state of Washington could be walking picket lines as soon as next week, in what some say is a direct result of ObamaCare.

Big supermarket chains including Safeway, QFC, Albertsons and Fred Meyer are represented by Allied Employers in contract negotiations with the United Food and Commercial Workers and Teamsters. One of the employers’ new proposals is to provide healthcare only to employees who work 30 or more hours per week, a minimum requirement under ObamaCare.

“As with all employers, the Affordable Care Act will impact how we deliver health benefits to our employees,” said Allied chief negotiator Scott Powers.

Under the most recent contract, workers got health care insurance if they put in a minimum of 16 hours per week.

Union officials say the President Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act is being used as a convenient excuse to cut benefits.

“The reason why the employers are doing this is it’s a big money grab,” said Tom Geiger of UFCW Local 21.

The union grocery stores are following non-union employers, such as Home Depot and Trader Joe’s, in sending part-time workers into the government health care exchanges. Under the law, employers must pay a penalty if they don’t provide insurance coverage to employees who work at least 30 hours a week. The part-timers insurance rollback is the exact scenario the Teamsters and UFCW worried about when they wrote Democratic leaders, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. The letter warned, “The unintended consequences of the ACA are severe.”

The unions, which strongly supported President Obama’s re-election and his health care initiative, oppose several provisions which encourage employers to move some workers from their health care plans into the taxpayer subsidized exchanges.

One change they sought was scrapping a tax employers must pay on so-called Cadillac health care plans. Pro-business libertarians say employers are reacting to ObamaCare as expected.

“Why pay twice to maintain our own health insurance coverage for part-time employees, and pay taxes in order to subsidize the exchanges?” says Max Nelson of the Washington State think tank Freedom Foundation.

Union leaders are not swayed by the argument that many of the part-time clerks would be eligible for inexpensive or even free health care coverage in the exchange. They say the exchange plans are a big step down in quality of coverage.

UFCW members voted 98 percent to authorize a strike. Even as negotiations continue, the union is preparing for a walkout by naming strike captains and making picket line schedules.

You see this?  Those jackasses wanted to inflict Zerocare on the American people, but, thought they should be exempt from their stupidity, born from hatred of their fellow citizens. 

They thought Zerocare meant that you would buy their insurance!!!  Not the other way around! 

A message from Galt…….


This is hysterical!!!!  Cry me a river!!!  We told you stupid bastages this was wrong.  We told you this was going to hurt you.  You called us extremists, racists, haters of the poor, and worse. 

You assholes were trying to screw people like me.  We tried to tell you not to do this.  We begged you lunatics not to do this.  But, your hatred for reason and sense was too strong.  You were going to stick it to the man!!!!!  Someone was going to buy your insurance for you!!!!  Damnit!!! 

Well, here’s what the people you thought you were sticking it to said……

Shut up!!!!  You stock boys and cashier biatches!!!  You just get your ass to work and buy my f’n insurance!!!! 

I promise you idiots, unless I come to some crazy million dollar find, I’m not paying for Zerocare.  The government will take it out of your check. 

Sucks when that happens, don’t it?



Again, shut up, and buy the rest of us insurance!!!  Wait!!!  One more time!!!!


Learn from this, you imbeciles!  Understand that you’re too stupid to make these sort of decisions.  You’ve proven it over and over, again.  Personally, I’m tired of trying to help you morons.  So, I’m just going to point and laugh at you’re stupidity, and everyone else who thinks people like me should have bought people like you, insurance.

Screw you, and get your ass back to bagging those groceries!!!!  I want a 90/10 co-pay!!!!  Hurry!!!

      It’s sorta like some nice warm cocoa an a cold winter night!

      • Me says:

        And the rotten Apple and Douchette are gona love this. What is that deductible again?

      • suyts says:

        The deductible depends on how hard those biatches work for me!!! I’m thinking I’m gonna be stuck with a couple $thousand. No worries, I’ll exceed that in a few years and just file bankruptcy on my healthcare bills. It’s all good.

        • Me says:

          It’s more than they have to pay for their insurance I’m sure, and then what percentage after that is covered?

        • David says:

          Not sure how it works. Will you have healthcare bills? Or will any taxes you pay be considered your healthcare bill, and then you still owe the taxes, collected with the full force of the IRS!!

  1. Me says:

    Also watch the prices of your groceries go up and up! Remember food is energy too and Barrycade said he wants energy prices to skyrocket!

    • Me says:

      Everything the powers to be does, appears to be pushing everyone to a bottleneck. That is human nature at it’s finest. Still it’s a dog eat dog world and they know it and say think of the children, but it’s a smoke screen to engage with the masses to go along willingly. Where have we seen that before?

      • Me says:

        The only people that can say think of the future are those well off enough now that can say that, and they aren’t looking after your future, just theirs. And then there are the others they convinced to sacrifice while they don’t. It’s going to be a rude awakening for them one day when they aren’t part of the plan, but just a useful tool to make it happen. 😆 Yeah I can laugh, because I don’t have much less to loose, except for the what we have now.

    Their spokesman from UFCW Local 21.
    That says it all.

  3. Bruce says:

    These people are really quick aren’t they. They’ve now realised the 30 hour mandate is going to screw them and the Affordable Care Act is an act, since its so unaffordable as to be pure comedy if it weren’t so serious.

    Which is exactly what the Tea Partiers have been telling them for months….

    And of course they all blame the Republicans for shutting down the government while trying Dunkirk-like to delay this monster.

    Oh, and I can just imagine poor unionised checkout people trying to get insurance on the amazingly user friendly exchange websites. Oh yessir I do.

    • Me says:

      I guess there wasn’t computer models to project what they were in for, like Toshinmack likes to spout. So they just had to pass it to read what was in it err something.

  4. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    Nobody ever claimed you have to be smart to join a Union.

    OBummerCare . . . . Screwing over Americans one outrageous deductible after another.

  5. PhilJourdan says:

    So many pigeons. So little time. All screaming – lie to me.

  6. David Appell says:

    James, aren’t an old man? Then why are you using words like “stupid biatches,” more often found among thoughtless 18-yr olds?

    Hasn’t life taught you anything?

  7. David Appell says:

    You assholes were trying to screw people like me.

    People like you?
    Who pays for your insurance?
