    Here's a simple fact about retail:  The vast - and I do mean vast - majority of floor help, receiving help, in fact virtually all help were already part-time employees.

    When you go to Target, Walmart, and most other stores just how many of those friendly faces do you think have full time jobs with good wages and benefits?  I would be no more than 1 out of 4 or 5.  

    Retail is low pay - often not much more than minimum wage and no benefits like vacation, health care, etc.  The idea that they're cutting back due to Obama care is baloney.

    Further, look at the clown that runs Papa John's Pizza.  He was threatening to raise a the cost of a pie by 15 cents to cover health care.  Yet, I see 2 for 1 sales, and other discounts costing him far more than that.

      sac o' sh*t. Neither do I plan to do so. 15 additional measly cents. Talk about a cheapskate.

      What we should do is begin to compile a list or data base of employers who gladly extend insurance under ACA to their employees. Especially if they were not in a position to do so previously. We need to get some sort of message out there neutralizing the turtle's message. Lord knows our party leaders won't. I just can't figure out their continued silence on these critical issues.

      Can I get a Grey Goose on the rocks over here?!
