Finding out what’s in it: Obamacare threatens to destroy volunteer fire departments.

It seems the law requires that volunteers be considered employees who must be covered by their organization. The money quote that sums up the entire law: “Welcome to federal regulations.”

    After I stopping hitting my head, I remembered there’s been a lot of charities and volunteer group screaming that various tax law etc changes slam them hard. They admin in one case said that these individual organizations were doing things that should be entrusted to the gov. So really, running volunteer fire departments would to them be a plus – since it would turn those functions over to professional firefighters.

    …ok It really means those areas will lose all fire services – but the Admin doesn’t get those obvious details.
