Cenk Uygur talks with Current correspondent Jacki Schechner about two fast-food franchise owners that are cutting workers’ hours to part time so that they won’t have to offer them health insurance. Though the Affordable Care Act’s provisions don’t kick in until 2014, many are trying to blame Obamacare now for the cutbacks.

“It’s total baloney,” Schechner says. “There’s a larger influence here that doesn’t have anything to do with the Affordable Care Act — but it’s been demonized, and so it’s a good scapegoat.”
