They do have to watch what they make because it will impact their pensions if they make too much.
And when they get close to that cap they just stop working for the rest of the school year.

Is everyone who gets a subsidy going to do the same ?
I doubt they even know they need to watch what they make next year.
And Obamacare education doesn't address this at all.

Yea, I wonder how many of those site visitors are of the 5-6 million who lost their insurance because of Obamacare.

I suspect the vast majority would be buying. People aren't really as self destructive as the RWers want you to believe.

I said a few years back before these reforms, that if doesn't ease the economic burden on the middle class, it won't fly.

I seriously doubt that any or very little of the "paying folks" have signed up. I'm willing to bet the 1/2% of the total population of folks that did sign up are Medicaid or high risk special needs.

Note the 1/2% is the total of the entire population. It's important to keep this cluster in perspective.

Amazing that Obama and democrats thought that we would all rejoice about Obamacare when we will be forced to pay higher premiums. Did they really think people would just shut up and take it quietly?

Hey, my 18 y/o son and his friends wouldn't be caught dead wearing a onesie and holding a cup of hot chocolate with both hands like the pusscake in the ObamaCare ad.

Face it, few men 25 miles from either US coast would hang out with a guy like that.
