    I apologize if this has already been posted, i didn't find it.

    Just found this on Yahoo News...again, a lie from our great leaders again??

    A new survey of Fortune 100 companies finds that the health care overhaul, contrary to the claims of its authors, created some perverse incentives for employers to drop workers from company insurance plans.

    If the companies indeed take this step, the move would fly in the face of pledges by the law's backers, including President Obama, that U.S. workers would not lose their employer-provided health plans.

    Employers could save billions by dropping workers from health plans, report shows | Fox News

    Many people saw this coming. It was one of the drawbacks and the democrats said it would never happen.

    The decline of employer based health insurance started declining in the year 2000.
    In fact the decline was faster before Obamacare. So plz do keep blaming a bill passed in 2010 for things that happened in the year 2000
    More Americans Are Losing Health Insurance Every Day

    I think it's called the ol' "Bait and Switch" tactic.
    It's as conniving as a bunch of lawyers could get in the middle of the night.
    pathetic

    I think i figured this out right.....
    My company has about 450 employees. At $2000 each, it would be just over 8 Mil. Compared to the BILLIONS they could save, I can see how they might want this!
