There is no company loosing money on the new health care bill, the only way that they could be loosing money on insurance premiums would be the insurance that is provided to the upper 1% of these companies, ooh now I get it, sorry I'm a bit slow, on second thought I'm not slow, I'm smart and I know what I know, like I said back door deals to have the upper 1% or what ever of there management staff have paid insurance. In my company we don't work that way, we all pay the same, we all drink from the same well, and I don't have to say I'm taking a write off. I hope more comes to light with regards to this and other statements made by the so called big guys in business.
Companies will be required to pay 76% of the premium. Right now my company only pays 54%. Given the choice, will they eat 22% or drop coverage?
And then they have to pay for an "approved" government plan. My plan is 90/10 right now. Will that be approved? No idea. But if not, do you think they will opt for a more expensive plan, or fill up the building they bought in Mexico two years ago that is already doing some of the work we used to do?
I don't mind that they removed subsidies from big business, but whacking them with extra costs on top of losing the subsidies is just a recipe for pulling stakes.
