Treasury Threatens Businesses With ObamaCare Perjury
On Monday, a Treasury Department unconcerned with the necessities of the free market said that businesses will need to “certify” that they are not shedding full-time workers simply to avoid the mandate and its costs.
Officials said employers will be told to sign a “self-attestation” on their tax forms affirming this, under penalty of perjury.
ObamaCare has created a class of employers known as the “49ers,” companies who decide to stay out of health care reform’s clutches by not exceeding, or by slimming down to, 49 employees, one fewer than the 50-employee threshold for providing health coverage.
There is also a class of employees known as the “29ers.” Their hours are limited or reduced to one fewer than the 30-hour threshold for being considered a full-time employee for whom coverage must be provided.
Employees get fired or laid off for all sorts of reasons, and in “at-will” states you can be fired for no reason at all or if your employer doesn’t like the color of your tie.
But now you must certify to Treasury that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs even if you are trying to avoid ObamaCare costs.
