    Thanks Obama, my company is dropping my medical coverage in 2014. Pay more for less, the result of the liberal failure tour.

    60% of firms to kill health insurance, charge more under Obamacare

    A majority of small business owners and manufacturers are mulling drastic changes to comply with Obamacare, with 21 percent set to drop health insurance to workers altogether and 38 percent planning to make employees pay much more.

    In a poll done for the National Association of Manufacturers and National Federation of Independent Businesses, 59 percent said that they will have to consider changes once the full law kicks in because increased costs will jeopardize their operations. According to the poll, 67 percent expect Obamacare to raise healthcare costs.

    And he promised that if he spent our grandchildren into massive debt the unempolyment rate would be below 8 percent. Took him 3 1/2 years and trillions in debt but damn he did it!!!!! The longest and weakest recovery in history....HE DID IT!!!!! Man when a party has to brag about a 7.8 percent unemployment rate you know they are in trouble.

    Yet more bitching and complaining from the right. Yes, Obamacare is a very bad law. Continually whining about it accomplishes nothing. Oh yeah, except your futile hope that after all this bitching and complaining people might suddenly decide to vote for Romney. Here's a pro tip for you: Obamacare has been around too long now for it to change or alter anyone's vote. If people like it, they already are set on that and aren't going to change that. If people don't like it, they already knew that a long time ago.

    I would expect them to come in and declare that those business owners are not patriotic.

    These are NEW developments as the private sector reacts and recoils to the unintended consequences.

    NEW developments, such as, oh the employer of a person who once supported Obamacare suddenly DROPPING his insurance altogether can tend to change person's mind on the subject.

    Obamacare is NOT a settled issue.

    That's like saying lung cancer is a new development and unintended consequence of smoking two packs a day.
