Maudine,Patriot pointed out only one of the many lies told to sell
Obamacare. You have no problem that BO and all the supporters lied? the end
justifies the means? That's an old soviet axiom.djc,apparently you did not work for UPS. Yes, the change UPS is making is
DIRECTLY related to Obamacare. They would not have made this change without
Obamacare.Hutterite,I would suspect from your prior comments
that you voted for the party that gave us this train wreck. Why do you keep
trying to sell something your own heros refused to give you?
djc. Did you not read the article? UPS is cancelling insurance coverage for
employee's spouses, not telling them to get it from their spouses
employers. How can you in good conscious defend this Obamacare train wreck?
@ patriot: Yeah - because the healthcare law specifically dictates to employers
that they have to keep your spouse on their insurance.Like dcj said,
for years employers have had rules about who they would insure and under what
conditions. And nothing in the ACA takes away the right your employer has
always had to change the plans they offer.
Well if there are in fact more layoffs, and the total collapse of the economy as
we know it, then the CEO of UPS won't be getting his $13 million
compensation package any more. So I guess unemployment might go up by the
number of servants he hires .Every company I have worked for over
the past 17 years had this same rule. If your spouse had insurance available
through his or her work, he or she was required to get it there and not be on
your policy. I guess it was the presidents fault 17 years ago, too.Sometimes it is far far too convenient to blame the fall guy.
If only we had the single payer system we should have, you wouldn't have to
worry about employers, or insurance.
This Obamacare nightmare has not even begun but we can certainly see a small
hint of what will happen: Total collapse of the economy as we have known it over
the past 50 years. How many employees have had hours cut for the employer to
avoid the forced benefit requirements of the new law? Less household income =
less spending = less production = more layoffs = increased demand for government
benefits = higher taxes = less household income = = = =.
