Does Hillary ever bother listening to what she says?
Does she not realize (or wants to pretend she doesn’t know) making us into a Part Time nation was a deliberate part of the plan?
Via Weekly Standard:
The Republican National Committee posted a video of Hillary Clinton admitting that Obamacare creates adverse incentives. During an exchange between Clinton and a questioner, Clinton noted, “we have built in some unfortunate incentives that discourage full-time employment.”
QUESTIONER: Hi, I just want to know why there is discrimination against the part-time workers when so many companies are going to part-time when it comes to FMLA?
CLINTON: Well, that’s why they are going to part-time. That, and also, the Affordable Care Act. You know, we got to change that because we have built in some unfortunate incentives that discourage full-time employment. A lot of employers believe if you don’t work 40-hours a week you don’t get benefits and that includes; you don’t get health care benefits; that might include you’re not eligible for the family medical leave; you’re not eligible for paid sick days. So, there is a disincentive in our system that we need to deal with and I really worry about it because there is trend to try and move more and more people into part-time work….
In 2007, Clinton actually proposed the mandate apply to employers with just 25 or more full-time employees. Clinton is also a long-time proponent of Obamacare.
