Dean: Employers will drop coverage under Obamacare



quote:

Former Democratic National Committee Chairman, and doctor, Howard Dean backed a McKinsey & Co. survey today that found that almost a third of private-sector employers will drop their employee health insurance coverage when Obamacare's government-managed insurance exchanges come online.


quote:

The reason Democrats fought so hard to dismiss the McKinsey survey when it was released is because its conclusion undermines two major claims Obama made during health care debate: "If you like your health plan, you can keep it" and "It will not add one penny to the deficit."

re: Dean: Employers will drop coverage under Obamacare


This might be the biggest, "WELL DUHHHHHHHHHH" statement of the last 50 years.

Many of us were saying this years ago. This is a complete no-brainer. Why? IT WAS DESIGNED THAT WAY. The whole "if you like your current coverage you can keep it" was nothing but a bold-faced f'ing lie. And, every lib on here knows it.

Now watch it...because now the Libs will say...HEY don't blame the policy...blame your employer the big evil companies for dropping you.

It was always designed for the companies to drop you like a hot potatoe...but it was also set up to point the blame at the companies so the Obama administration can deflect the blame.

The article says that if the survey is correct, that would bump the CBO projected cost by 1 trillion. Over how many years though? The CBO projected costs over a ten year and 20 year period.

How can they drop coverage if it's mandated by law?

I think what is being said is that they're going to drop the current coverage and move to the mandated coverage

i.e. if you are happy with your coverage, too bad, you're going to be rolled over into this new system

Because it would be cheaper to pay the fine
than it would be to pay for coverage for their employee

re: Dean: Employers will drop coverage under Obamacare


Oh, I see. it's because employers would rather pay a fine of $2000 than to provide the required amount of insurance.

the only disturbing part is that employees will have to foot the bill.

eta: as ling as the idiots with jobs that spend all their money on rims and iPhones will now pay for their own healthcare, I'll be fine with it. we pay out the arse right now to pay for irresponsible "underinsured" people.

Just as you were warned when The One was pushing the bill through without it being read. So don't act surprised.

Oh, look, we have one of the mindless, Kool-Aid drinking, DailyKook regurgitating morons right here!!!


The system was set up this way. Odummy KNEW this would happen. And, yet, as a selling point he said that if you like your coverage you'll get to keep it -- knowing that the statement was a bold-face f'ing lie. And, also knowing that the sheep who consider Odummy their Messiah would preach the message of the mean, evil corporations.

Congrats for being so f'ing predictable!!!

No doubt.

A lot of employers just help pay for cheap high-deductable, low coverage policies. now they will be required to provide full blown coverage, many will just take the fine and let their employees deal with it themselves.

Howard Dean must be an evil teabagger who wants sick people to die in the streets.
