Suppose 2.5 million people want to go from full time to part time, as a carpenter, roofer, data entry, chef or info tech so they can go back to school or spend more time with kids or with parents. President Obama says YES you can still have great, affordable healthcare even with a part time job. There are 2 types of us Americans. Half of us worked 60 hours a week like me when me was working. The other half do not have a job or are on disability. Good for Obamacare for giving you a head start on your bettr career.
Maybe you would like to keep your insurance and be a part time fishing guide or do landscaping. Then retire early from your regular job to do something else. Republican Congressman hate Obamacare, get paid $200,000 grand a year and only work part time. Congress is in session only one day in 3 and when in session, Republicans vote against a raise in the min wage. In North Carolina they did not elect a governor. They elected a lobbyist from Duke Energy...

Since taking over the legislature in 2010 and the governor’s mansion in 2012, controlling state government for the first time in over a century, North Carolina Republicans eliminated the earned-income tax credit for 900,000 North Carolinians; refused Medicaid coverage for 500,000; ended federal unemployment benefits for 170,000; cut pre-K for 30,000 kids while shifting $90 million from public education to voucher schools; slashed taxes for the top 5 percent while raising taxes on the bottom 95 percent; axed public financing of judicial races; prohibited death row inmates from challenging racially discriminatory verdicts; passed one of the country’s most draconian anti-choice laws; and enacted the country’s worst voter suppression law, which mandates strict voter ID, cuts early voting and eliminates same-day registration, among other things."
If you give Republicans an inch, they will take a mile by changing laws to make sure they stay in power forever...
During the last redistricting cycle, then-Ohio state Senate President Tom Niehaus (R) pledged to deliver a redrawn map of Ohio’s congressional districts “that Speaker Boehner fully supports.” Indeed, at the height of the map drawing process, Boehner’s political aide Tom Whatman averaged a request a day to Ohio’s mapmakers — often micromanaging the slightest geographic changes in the district lines. In one case, for example, the line-drawers added a peninsula with no residents at all to Rep. Jim Renacci’s (R-OH) district because the peninsula included the headquarters of a company whose leaders donated generously to Renacci.
A full election cycle later, Team Boehner’s micromanagement paid off. President Obama won the state of Ohio by nearly two points in 2012, but 12 members of Ohio’s 16 member Congressional delegation are Republicans. In the nation as a whole, nearly 1.4 million more Americans voted for Democratic House candidates than Republicans.
The districts Boehner helped draw in Ohio played into a much larger Republican Party strategy to secure the House by rigging the legislative maps. Indeed, last January, the Republican State Leadership Committee released a report entitled “How a Strategy of Targeting State Legislative Races in 2010 Led to a Republican U.S. House Majority in 2013.” The report bragged that gerrymandering “paved the way to Republicans retaining a U.S. House majority in 2012.”
Lest there be any doubt, Ohio was hardly the only state where Republicans achieved lopsided control over a state’s congressional delegation despite the fact that the state’s voters preferred President Obama to Governor Romney. To the contrary, Republicans made big gains in six key swing states thanks to GOP-friendly maps:
As Josh Israel explained this morning, gerrymandering explains much of the Republican Party’s willingness to hold the federal government hostage for a policy agenda that was defeated at the polls last November. Not only did gerrymandering play a major role in delivering a majority to House Republicans, but it placed most of these Republicans in overwhelmingly red districts — the average House Republican was elected by a district where President Obama received less than 40 percent of the vote. In other words, the people holding our government hostage right now have little to fear from non-Republican voters and a great deal to fear from the highly conservative set that dominates GOP primaries — and they can thank gerrymandering for the job security they now enjoy." end of quote
So there you have it. Republicans can rule like kings and be hated but still run the House. The Republican goal is to make sure billionaires pay a lower tax rate than their secretary. And ger rid of Medicare, medicaid, Social Security and the min wage. To appeal to gun toting Texas traitors, more teens in more states can walk down main street with a loaded 12 gauge.
Republicans will pass more laws keeping women from voting if their name has changed from marriage or divorce. But here is the good news. God Almighty hates Republicans, especially the Texas Tea Party Traitor Republicans. Here in America we are still the City on a Hill that God loves. GO GET THEM DAM REPUBLICANS. Oh yes Lord! Make sure those lying traitor Republicans know that on Judgement Day, God will send them to Hell where lying traitor republicans belong!

I, too, want to reduce my work hours and go from full time to part time employment so I can start another career. I wish to pursue my dream as a fishing guide. However, I have encountered a few problems:
