ObamaCare’s impact on jobs is hotly debated by politicians and economists. Critics say the Affordable Care Act, with its employer mandate to provide health insurance, gives businesses an incentive to cut workers’ hours. This year, report after report has rolled in about employers restricting work hours to fewer than 30 per week — the point where the mandate kicks in. Data also point to a record low workweek in low-wage industries.

In the interest of an informed debate, we’ve compiled a list of job actions with strong proof that ObamaCare’s employer mandate is behind cuts to work hours or staffing levels. As of Oct. 17, our ObamaCare scorecard included 351 employers.

Here is what’s happening in the post-reality America, however. This evidence keeps piling up but when the White House says, “Nah, that’s not real,” half of the country unquestioningly believes them.

The reason that Team Lightbringer keeps delaying portions of the law isn’t really because they aren’t ready to implement today, it’s that they are trying to lessen the the horror by meting it out piecemeal. They know it will be awful and they know the blowback won’t be pretty.

The administration is gaming the law. The employer mandate is delayed, but not the individual mandate, to force individuals into the exchanges. The administration knows that once people have become used to a new "entitlement," they do not want to give it up. This is what happened in Great Britain's national health service. This is not a mystery.

Good news, the employees who have their hours cut are eligible for Obamacare subsidies, earned income credits, and possibly food stamps.
