Poelking Lanes is a family-owned business with four bowling alleys throughout Ohio’s Miami Valley that has been around for 74 years.  Sadly, because of the president’s health care law, the Poelking family recently had to reluctantly inform their 150 employees that the family business has been forced to drop the health care coverage Poelking Lanes has long provided for its employees.  

Joe Poelking told Jack Atherton (@JackA2245) of WRGT in Dayton, Ohio, that eliminating their employees’ health care benefits was a difficult decision.  “Very tough.  It’s family,” Poelking said.

In addition, Mr. Poelking discussed the way the president’s health care law has affected the growth of their family business. “We are really not hiring full time employees.  We are hiring part-time employees,” Poelking said.  “With what’s going on with the mandate, we really can’t afford to be hiring full time employees.”

Congressman Boehner has vowed that the effort to provide fairness for all Americans must go on.  “Our drive to stop the train wreck that is the president's health care law will continue,” Boehner said recently.  “We will rely on aggressive oversight that highlights the law's massive flaws and smart, targeted strikes that split the legislative coalition the president has relied upon to force his health care law on the American people.”
