Walmart Announces They Will End Health Insurance For New Hires

Remember when Obama told you, over and over again, that you could keep your insurance under Obamacare.

It was a lie. Obama knew it was a lie when he said it.

He knew Obamacare would replace private policies. That was the plan all along.

Walmart announced this week they would end insurance for new hires.

Shifts from company paid private insurance to Medicaid:

 Walmart, the nation’s largest private employer, plans to begin denying health insurance to newly hired employees who work fewer than 30 hours a week.

Under the policy, slated to take effect in January, Walmart also reserves the right to eliminate health care coverage for certain workers if their average workweek dips below 30 hours — something that happens with regularity and at the direction of company managers.

Walmart declined to disclose how many of its roughly 1.4 million U.S. workers are vulnerable to losing medical insurance under its new policy. …

Labor and health care experts portrayed Walmart’s decision to exclude workers from its medical plans as an attempt to limit costs while taking advantage of the national health care reform known as Obamacare. Among the key features of Obamacare is an expansion of Medicaid, the taxpayer-financed health insurance program for poor people. Many of the Walmart workers who might be dropped from the company’s health care plans earn so little that they would qualify for the expanded Medicaid program, these experts said.

But last year, the company eliminated coverage for some part-time workers – those new hires working 24 hours a week or less. Now, Walmart is going further.

Basically Walmart’s New Health Care Policy Shifts Burden To Medicaid. A government zoo for poor people.
