This move will affect over 30,000 employees that work less than 30 hours per week for the large retail chain. “We had to make some tough decisions,” said Sally Wellborn, Wal-Mart’s senior vice president of benefits.
Wal-Mart has made several efforts in an attempt to make healthcare under The Affordable Care act work for their company. Unfortunately it is just too expensive. And the costs just keep going up. Wal-Mart is not the first company to cut benefits in such a manner. Home Depot, Target, Trader Joe’s and several more have done the same.

This is just more proof that Obamacare is not working. Liberals are now calling Wal-Mart “evil” because of Obama’s poor decisions and politcal pressure. I think they should take a good hard look at who is really the evil one in this picture.
What are your thoughts, is Obamacare a total disaster?
