‘A Public Safety Disaster’

Obamacare could force THOUSANDS of volunteer fire departments to close:

  • The Affordable Care Act forces companies  with more than 50 workers to buy them all health insurance or pay hefty  fines
  • The IRS says volunteer firefighters are  ’employees,’ even though the Department of Labor says they’re  ‘volunteers’
  • Out of more than 1 million fire  departments in the U.S., 87 per cent are staffed entirely or mostly by  life-saving volunteers
  • Members of Congress are weighing in, but  the Obama administration hasn’t taken any action yet to carve out a  fire-fighting exception

let it burn

Volunteer fire departments all across the  U.S. could find themselves out of money and unable to operate unless Congress or  the Obama Administration exempts them from the Affordable Care Act.
‘I thought the kinks were worked out  of  Obamacare at the first of the month, Central Florida volunteer  firefighter Carl  Fabrizi told Sunshine State News.
‘Man, oh, man, this could potentially destroy  some real good companies in Florida.’

Why is it that we get most of our breaking insights from the U.K.?

Obama’s “let it burn” policy is running its course. Shame.
