Stupid is as stupid does...

Yeah, this will end well:

"Senators Joe Donnelly (D-IN) and Susan Collins (R-ME) introduced a measure Wednesday that would change the definition of a full-time worker under the [ObamaTax]. The proposal is aimed at preventing workers from having their hours scaled back as businesses try to cope with the additional cost of providing insurance"

Um, Joe and Suzie? You can "change the definition" all you wish, but the reality is that employers will simply let employees go, and/or decline to hire new ones. And that means even more hardship for the very people you purport to want to help.

Don't believe me?

Well, then, how about the folks who actually make these decisions?

"[Gallup] determined that as many as a quarter of small business employers were restricting job openings to part-time workers. Nearly half said Obamacare would be bad for their business, compared to only 9 percent who said it would be a good thing"

Can the folks in Capital City even spell "economics?"
