Here's a link, with just 100 cases where hundreds, and sometimes thousands of people's lives are adversely affected by this law. Funny how popular forcing employees to a 28 hour work week has become, eh?

100 Unintended Consequences of Obamacare | National Review Online

Today, Obamacare’s October 1 launch date finally arrived. Ever since its passage, supporters of the law have made countless attempts to convince the American people of its viability, dismissing predictions of lost jobs, decreased hours, and rising costs, among others.

Yet from major corporations to local mom-and-pop shops, from entire states to tiny school districts, a wide range of companies and institutions have seen Obamacare’s negative impact on their workers, budgets, and production. Here are 100 examples of how Obamacare is falling short of what was promised.

Yeah, it's almost like this was pre-written, formatted, and edited to publish before Obamacare came out.

Like all those claims of job losses and huge costs associated with Obamacare since it was passed, and before it was implemented.

It was like conservatives were *dramatic pause* lying. As Raplh would put it, "That's Unpossible."

I would question the "unintended" portion.

These are not stupid people who made up this law. AND They know these layoffs and cuts are taking place and nobody has changed the law that would slow down the layoffs and cuts.

No law goes without change. If those 88 tea party loons get with the program, work can begin to correct errors.

It's kind of wack to want this impass to continue, then complain of problems in the law.

What in one day? The law has been on the books for years.

People's health insurance costs have been rising for all that time. Hours have been getting cut, for quite a while. Insurance companies have been dropping people for as long.

It's almost as if you liberals are lying.

Aw, no, I can't say that about you.

There's no "as if". There never is, with liberals.
