Obamacare Hoses Fire Depts.

Obamacare Hoses Fire Depts.

As has been thoroughly rehashed, ObamaCare requires employers to offer health insurance to employees who work more than 30 hours (considered "full time" in the Obama economy). That's caused many employers to reduce hours to spare unbearable costs. Now comes news that volunteer fire departments around the nation may close because of the regulation unless a waiver is granted. Evidently, the IRS says that volunteer firefighters are eligible for benefits if on the job more than 30 hours per week. Some 71% of fire departments nationwide are manned entirely by volunteers, and another 16% are mostly volunteer. Just another chapter in ObamaCare Games: Catching Fire.

An IQ test should be required to vote.
The Democrats would never win another election.
