YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The law that has become known as Obamacare continues to draw criticism from opponents.
Congressman Bill Johnson met with students and faculty from Eastern Gateway Community College on Wednesday to discuss the effects of the Affordable Health Care Act.
The law requires employers to provide health benefits to anyone working more than 30 hours per week.
School administrators say that as a result, they may have to cut the hours of about 150 part time teachers, and at the same time find more part timers to maintain the current level of service.
"We're finding out that in some cases we're getting bipartisan support across the political isle to recognize that there are some aspects of this healthcare law that sounded good when you said it verbally, but when you put it down on paper and try to implement it as a rule, it's not working out," Johnson said.
Congressman Johnson also criticizes the Health Care Act's tax on medical devices. He says it would make it tough for American manufacturers to recover the cost.
