Thanks Obamacare! Home Depot dumps healthcare coverage for part-time workers

Obamacare has now officially cost 20,000 part-time Home Depot employees their current health insurance plan, even though President Obama infamously promised:

OBAMA: There's a guarantee that I've made. If you have insurance that you like, then you will be able to keep that insurance. If you've got a doctor that you like, you will be able to keep your doctor.

TheBlaze reports:

Home Depot Inc is shifting medical coverage for part-time workers to new public marketplace exchanges ahead of new benefits requirements under the U.S. Affordable Care Act, a spokesman said on Thursday.

Home Depot’s change would affect roughly 20,000 part-time workers who previously had chosen the limited liability medical plan the company offered, spokesman Stephen Holmes said.

After December 31, companies can no longer offer those plans under the health law, also known as Obamacare.

Home Depot’s announcement comes on the heels of a similar announcement from grocery chain Trader Joe’s Co.

“During this healthcare debate we said, you know, companies are going to be dumping people into this exchange,” Pat said on radio this morning. “They're going to drop their own healthcare, it's going to cost people their healthcare. Well, Home Depot is shifting medical coverage for part-time workers to the new public marketplace exchanges ahead of new benefits requirements by the Affordable Care Act.”

“And it's interesting because you said, Home Depot, they had a CEO who was Republican-leaning,” Stu added. “But Trader Joe's is where you go to buy hummus. Okay? That's where you go to buy hummus and pita. The boxes say grass fed when they're selling meat. They actually have cloth bags. In fact, they give you discounts if you bring your bags back in. This is not some hard core right wing evil establishment.”

Remember way back in 2008 when Jacob S. Hacker, the liberal Yale scholar widely regarded as the originator of the ‘public option,’ said:

HACKER: Someone once said to me, ‘Well, this is a Trojan horse for single payer.’ I said, ‘Well, it’s not a Trojan horse, right? It’s just right there! I’m telling you!’

“That was the architect of the plan,” Pat said. “And he admitted it really early on.”

“And the reason it's a single payer plan is because all these companies are going to say this makes no sense for us to keep them on our own rules, we're going to have to push them into this government system because it makes no sense. It's going to cost us too much money,” Stu continued. “So they do that. And then over time, the weight on the private system is too heavy and you have to give up and convert it to a single payer plan. That was the whole idea behind this President's healthcare system. You're seeing it in effect now. I mean, it was denied over and over again, not just by people on the left but also people in the media who said it was a scare tactic, who said there's no truth in the fact that this President supports a single payer healthcare – even though we had him on record multiple times before he was running for President saying he was a supporter of single payer care.”

Despite the President, the media, and those on the left’s best attempts to convince the public that absolutely nothing will change as a result of the Affordable Care Act, we now know that is simply not the case.

“None of that is true. And we said at the time that won't be true. People are going to have to drop the healthcare they currently have to you're going to lose the doctor you currently have and it has happened millions of times since we said it,” Pat said. “It's happening more and more and more and as this thing approaches, as this disaster looms ever closer, it's all coming to fruition. The chickens are coming home to roost.”

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn explained why he wouldn't be surprised to see our supply chain collapse and empty shelves in America in the near future. Shortages are already wrecking our economy, China (where many of our goods are still made) is facing an energy shortage, and the Biden administration sure seems to be doing everything it can to make things worse.

Glenn noted a serious warning from American CEO Mike Beckham: "There's a major storm brewing in the supply chain," Beckham wrote on Twitter.

Thanks to China's centrally planned system, electricity shortages are causing huge delays in product manufacturing. In fact, some items are facing a 33 percent cut in production. "It could dramatically impact every [American's] life next year. But almost no one knows about it yet," Beckham warned.

Glenn went on to explain exactly what this means for you — and what you can do to prepare.
