GOP Study Shows Companies Would Save Money By Dropping Health Care Offerings, Paying Tiny Fine

None of this will come as a surprise to anybody who's been paying attention. The employer fine is light and ObamaCare exchange subsidies heavy... how else would it play-out, then...

The companies can even raise salaries with some of the savings and everybody wins.... except the taxpayers of course, who will be covering the whole debacle with money we never had in the first-place:
Trying to build their case that President Obama’s health care law will destroy traditional employer-sponsored insurance, House Republicans released a study Tuesday showing that the largest companies could save billions by kicking workers off their current health plans and pushing them into government-subsidized exchanges.

In a dig at Mr. Obama, who promised that the law would allow people to keep their current coverage, the report found that companies could save $4,821 per worker if they chose to end coverage and instead pay a fine — leaving their employees with no recourse but to buy insurance on their own through the exchanges.

'It is clear to me that because of this law, Americans will not be able to keep the health care plan they have and like' said Rep. Dave Camp of Michigan, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. He charged that the Affordable Care Act will make insurance so expensive that employers won’t be able to afford to offer it anymore. -Washington Times 

The glaring reality is that Obamacare provides multiple incentives for companies to drop their offerings and push their employees onto federal exchanges. And it's all by design...

Even non-losers with real jobs will migrate towards federal program, destroying insurance companies and completing an unwanted nationalization of the American health-care system though squirelly, back-door methods so typical of the Bolshevik Boy Wonder and his disingenuous enablers.

Just another reminder of how the Left are out to shove THEIR agenda down your throat by-hook-or-by-crook... while lying to your face every step of the way 'Forward' on towards their Cuba-esque socialist paradise.
