Hope everyone is having a great day, whether you're celebrating the memory of civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, or the inauguration of the President for his second term in office!  

I had to work today, but I'm thankful to still have a job.  However, we were told today, due to new rules under Obamacare, only those who are covered by company insurance (i.e. management) will be allowed to work over 30 hours a week.  So although I'm not unemployed, I now find myself underemployed.  My health does not allow me to work the excessive hours required of managers, so I guess I'll have to pick up more outside work or work harder at building my resale business.  Since the company I work for is a major corporation and one of the largest employers in the U.S., I'm guessing this will be a standard response to the new regulations kicking in under Obamacare.  That being the case, the states should be preparing themselves to be inundated with new applications for medicaid.  Cutting 10 or more hours of pay per week from people who can barely pay their rent and put food on the table will most likely reduce their incomes to the point they will qualify for medicaid assistance.  Not sure where the government will come up with the money for all this.  Perhaps they should have given the whole thing a little more thought???
