    When employers decide it will cost them less to pay the fine than to insure their employees, how much will families be paying for insurance in the exchanges they have to buy their insurance from?

    What families?

    Who in their right mind would start a family with all those mandated expenses and penalties hanging over their heads?

    It will cost eveybody, everywhere, more and it will further cripple small businesses. One business with 65 employees is going to let 15 of them go, to bring it down to 50, so his insurance rates for his employees doesn't go up. :cuckoo: Other companies are saying they are dropping insurance plans....

    This decision today was the best thing that could have ever happened to this country as it ensures a Romney win in November. The independents are very unhappy.....

    My power has been out for 8 hours, since logging in this morning. ...:evil: So pissed!!!!!!

    Now according to the barry supporters it's going to be free and everyone will be covered and there will be bunnies dancing in the fields, and the streets will be paved with gold, etc., ad nauseum.

    :rolleyes:

    The politicians that signed that bill should be charged with fraud and punished to the full extent of the law. Iceland, kicked the corrupt politicians out of office, and have started prosecutions for them and their banker conspirators. It would send a great message to our "leaders"/representatives.

    If you're already getting insurance from your employer, why would they chose to stop it?

    If you're not getting insurance from your employer, buying insurance from the exchanges will be cheaper than buying it otherwise would.

    Yes, Willard lied about that in his speech today. He also suggested that one couldn't keep their insurance carrier. The Insurance companies love this bill ... they wrote it.

    Because your employer can save money by switching to the penalty and sending you over to the exchange.
