    I work for a company that is owned by a corporation that has yearly revenues of between 2 and 3 billion a year.

    Today, we were called into the Town Hall in groups to go over changes in our Health Care. HR pointed out that Obamacare was kicking in and the cost to the ENTIRE corporation was $250,000.

    Someone said, "That's it? That isn't the cost to just this company here in Chicago?" HR said no, that the cost was spread out over the entire organization.

    Afterwards, they asked the group of about 35 that anyone who didn't have a dependent under 26 they wanted to add to their insurance could leave. That was a little less than half.

    See, the reason people were excited about putting their kids on their insurance is because those "kids" are going to college and now they have health care until they graduate. That's a huge help to people struggling to pay for their kid's college.

    And I can tell you this, I thought the cost was going to be a lot more after everything Republicans have said. I totally believed them, I'm ashamed to say. They got me. They had me worried with their lies. And after Bush, I thought I was immune. Shows how we have to be on guard against absolutely everything they say. They really did. They got me.

    My son was kicked off my insurance at age 22. He had to go open market and pay $1700 a year for a policy that covered very little. With Obamacare, he again has full coverage at no additional premium

    They cant afford to participate, so they suck up to the regime in order to opt out.
