    Obaminationcare was supposed to insure most Americans, yet nearly 10% say they will drop coverage and 10% say they don't know how they will continue to cover workers! And this is only for the companies with 50-100 workers. The <50 will have ever LESS incentive to provide insurance (huge costs for coverage), not too mention they will have ENORMOUS incentive to never go over 50 employees.

    But don't worry folks the individual mandate will get all the healthy people to buy the extremely costly individual health insurance, otherwise they get wacked with a wooping $95 fine in 2014 and $695 fine in 2016! In the end gobs of sick people will be acquiring insurance when they couldn't have before (which is a good thing), but at enormous costs and the healthy people savior TAX won't pick up the bill. In fact they will cause more losses since they will just get insurance when they need it and drop it when they don't!

    Folks Obaminationcare is about ONE THING: BANKRUPTING THE HEALTH INSURANCE INDUSTRY. If Obama wins reelection, he will see one healthcare provider after another going under and he will move towards a Single Payor Option as the savior!

    umm... not to get people angry...
    I have thought about this for a long time, I watch Fox news and I consider myself in the center,
    but what I can't stop asking myself, is, what if you are someone that needs health care, and you are desperate, what happened if the world said "we can't afford you".....

    I don't think Obamanationcare is going to be implemented correctly, but I think that every US citizen should be able to access care.

    Now if someone chooses to be lazy and have everything taken care for them, I don't agree with that.

    So, how many people are angry with me?

    It's going to be more than that. A lot of companies don't want to provide insurance now. The only reason they do is so they won't lose workers to other companies.

    When people find out how small the fine is it could spread and a lot of people could drop coverage... And only buy it in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

    That would make insurance so expensive that even more people would drop it.

    Not everything about this is bad though, dropping coverages would increase off the pocket visits and thus some sectors could become more efficient.

    We will see if dropping insurance becomes popular.


    One thing is sure... 51 employee business is going to be rarer than diamond.

    It's a good excuse as any for dropping coverage for your employees.

    If that ambulance ride doesn't happen to be between October 15 and December 7, you're going to have some trouble buying insurance--in an exchange, anyway.

    All the more reason we need a government option for those who have been dropped by their employers
