Seven million will lose insurance under Obama health law

President Obama's health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

I know of someone whose health insurer simply decided to stop providing coverage altogether and informed their insureds that they will no longer be covered.

CBO said that this year's tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they'll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.


Wait, I thought people wanted businesses to be able to chose for themselves? Now this is a bad thing? Guess y'all want Obama to force businesses to offer coverage?

Someone please explain the following quote to me.

But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS than it earlier projects, because of a better method for calculating incomes that found more people will be exempt

glad to see hard working Americans with job provided insurance won't be affected by this.

People are going to get kicked off their employer based coverage but they are also too poor to expect to be able to buy their own.

This was warned when this was passed. But the dems lied about it and now it is happening just like Limbaugh and the rest of the republicans said it would.

The dems always wanted a single payer and that would be the government. That way they can control the people and control the population. Kill more senior citizens to make their great healthcare work.
Who knows by 2020 we may have a mandatory death at 70. This is not an exaggeration. I think we all heard a hint in one interview by an Obama associate before his first election about taking the pill.

I am not surprised. Now that the fricker got reelected, the real numbers can start coming out.

If I hear one Obama supporter complain about the healthcare bill, I will laugh at them uncontrollably, since that is all I can do anyway.

If you voted for Obama, you voted for Obamacare. You bought the cow, now drink the shitty milk with those of us who knew it was shite.

Sounds like they're saying we're actually poorer than they first thought.

But 69 million more guns have been legally sold in the US since Obama was elected.

"a better method of calculating income" is that similar to the "new math"

No, my cognitively deficient friend, the comment was not a deflection but an additional example that the intended consequences are not always achieved when there is a moron creating policy.

No big deal b/c if you are moderately successful you will be able to buy a plan from the exchange for only 1/6 of your pretax income!!!!

What a deal.

Hey guys, I found the person in the room pretending this is not a stacked deck that businesses are making decisions in.

In all seriousness....this is exactly what Obama wanted. He wanted more people to lose their insurance and put such a heavy burden on the insurance companies that the only REAL answer is government health care. Anybody that disagrees with that is not being honest with themselves.
