Obama admin: Employers aren’t getting rid of workers because of O-care, and they’ll have to sign papers to prove it

This is getting beyond disturbing:

Some lawmakers, though, have claimed that the mere threat of the employer mandate is causing companies to shed full-time workers in the hope of keeping their staff size below 50 and avoiding the requirement.

Administration officials dispute that this is happening on any large scale. Further, Treasury officials said Monday that businesses will be told to “certify” that they are not shedding full-time workers simply to avoid the mandate. Officials said employers will be told to sign a “self-attestation” on their tax forms affirming this, under penalty of perjury.

If any employer’s “self-attestation” says the company was forced to cut workers or hours due to Obamacare, will Treasury accuse them committing perjury for claiming something happened that the Obama administration says wasn’t necessary?

To fill out the “self-attestation,” just look for the tax form labeled “1041-Nice business you have, shame if something were to happen to it.”
