    Or Walmart could just lay off workers like thousands of other companies across the states. Isn't this what the liberals want? Now the Dems can raise taxes on the wealthy and make them pay for everyone's health care.

    And you're saying you didn't see this coming? Sit back and watch how many employers drop health insurance thanks to Obamacare. It should come as no surprise.

    Let the free market speak. Shop at places that dont do that.

    But...the end result? If fewer people can go to the doctor, the medical system will start losing money. Supply v. Demand. Eventually, they'll lower their damn prices.

    First off, congrats on earning another 25 cents for posting a HuffyPuffy link. :thup:

    Secondly, why would anyone be upset by WalMart (or any other company) following a provision of the ACA as it was written. Don't you want everyone to follow the law? :dunno:

    Barely anyone shops with their conscience anymore. In the past people wouldn't shop at places like Wal-Mart, but today everyone has a "get mine" attitude. Wal-Mart can and will do whatever it wants within the confines of the law, because everyone and their grandma will keep shopping there anyways.

    The free market has spoken. Wal-Mart can do whatever they want to their employees, so long as they keep prices low.

    WE TRIED to tell the Obamatrons ... Obama wants to put health insurance companies OUT of business!!

    "The result ObamaCare which today McKinsey & Company commissioned a survey of 1,329 U.S. private sector employers to measure their attitudes about healthcare reform concluded that 30% of all companies would stop providing health coverage once Obamacare kicked in in 2014.
    http://www.mckinsey.com/features/us_employer_healthcare_survey

    And any of you idiots who think the "insurance exchanges" will replace this??? You know NOTHING about how health insurance works!

    It was NEVER the insurance companies fault... they just passed the costs on by raising premiums!
    Then Obama care does away with "pre-existing conditions" and NOW insurance actuaries are telling us they have to take that in account and therefore the actuaries that calculate the premiums are saying the following for private insurance not employer!

    A nationwide study conducted by Milliman Inc. for the Society of Actuaries found that nationwide the premiums in the individual market would increase from 8 to 37 percent in 2014
    with a cumulative increase of as much as 122 percent between 2013 and 2017!!!

    Take the time like I did download from the Society of Actuaries SOA - Society of Actuaries - Design and Implementation Considerations of ACA Risk Mitigation Programs
