Sorry, mistyped. The dates are 2011. I corrected the post. Thanks for pointing that out, I attempt to not make such mistakes.

You wish! We have the best health insurance. AND it's free, becuase the employer pays for it as one of it's many benefits to it's employees. But it, like many other companies, are being forced by Obama to drop their employees health care. But this is what you liberals want, isn't it.
As usual, you presume wrong. I wouldn't keep that up if I were you. It doesn't make you look so good....

Fair enough. However, the question has and will remain to be:

What's behind curtain number 2?

Obamacare: The gift that keeps on giving. I can't wait to see what's next!
Can anyone give me a year that the cost of healthcare went DOWN?
I've been working for a long time and have never seen that happen.

Now you will pay 100% of your premiums as well ass 100% of Johnny crack head's premiums. Meanwhile, Johnny spends his days sitting on the couch smoking crack and occasionally venturing down to the local social services office to see if there are any further entitlements that he's missing the boat on. Isn't that special?

2012 and several more good things, then 2013, 2014, ... you get the point. It's 2014, where you will likely see the individuals portion of the premiums going down. Until then, they will go up, just as they have to several decades.

It is undoubtedly true there are employers taking this opportunity to drop their benefits, but there is little, if anything in the law that is forcing them to do that. What is driving that, is the desire to lower the costs of doing business, and using the new law as an excuse to their employees, rather than telling their employees the truth, they just want to increase profits. In fact there are things that would encourage employers to provide coverage in the Law but they may not trump the profit incentive. Particularly when they have employees so willing to believe the excuse.

Costs were rising substantially for years, every year. What I see is the for profit money grubbing insurance lobby fooled the Obama admin. "Hey pres, just force those dumb sucker americans into our insurance plans and everything will be right with the world (and our profits). Wrong..........With or without Obamacare the rates were going to skyrocket anyway because they can.

There is no law, at least not yet. But this is not because they want to do this, they have no choice. Why would they pay for their employees for so long, if they could have been having them pay at least part of it? They could charge us now, but they are waiting until Obamcare is getting ready to kick in. That is the only reason why they are doing this. The great benefits are the # 1 reason why people work at most companies. Take that away, and they are really no better than anyother company. No one will reall want to work there anymore.
Obamacare hurts everyone. Everyone that actually works for a living, or has their own campany, that is...
