Half the ObamaCare Call Center Jobs are Part Time Without Healthcare at CA Location

We’re gonna need a bigger irony meter.

Earlier this year, Contra Costa County won the right to run a health care call center, where workers will answer questions to help implement the president’s Affordable Care Act. Area politicians called the 200-plus jobs it would bring to the region an economic coup.

Now, with two months to go before the Concord operation opens to serve the public, information has surfaced that about half the jobs are part-time, with no health benefits — a stinging disappointment to workers and local politicians who believed the positions would be full-time.

The Contra Costa County supervisor whose district includes the call center called the whole hiring process — which attracted about 7,000 applicants — a “comedy of errors.”

“The battle for the call center was over jobs with good working wages and benefits; I never dreamed they would be part-time,” said Karen Mitchoff, who has heard from complaining constituents and expressed her “extreme displeasure with how it was handled” to call center supervisors.

One recent hire, who last week learned the job would be part-time, said the new “intermittent” employees feel like they’ve been used as a political tool, and many now regret applying for the positions.

Comedy of errors? Political tools? Welcome to ObamaCare, you morons. Speaking of political tools, the folks from the IRS charged with enforcing ObamaCare now want to exempt themselves from it.  You can’t make this stuff up.

    Let’s not forget that these various “comedies of errors” make 100% sense when you realize the goal is to:

    –eliminate employer insurance entirely
    –eliminate health insurance companies
    –create a massive national health care bureaucracy that controls every aspect of your life

    All this will come to pass by 2030, and possibly 2020 if we’re stupid enough to elect another Democrat to the White House. After that, the road to Socialism — and the Road to Serfdom, when combined with 20 million new immigrant “citizens” voting Democrat — is the end of America as a first world country.

    I do not plan to retire in the United States anymore.
