Chalk Another One Up For Obamacare

Boeing mailed a letter to its employees detailing increases in their health care costs as a result of Obamacare. The company provides very nice plans and under Obamacare they would be considered “Cadillac” plans and subject to the 40% tax the law places on such plans. The increase is expected to affect 90,000 NONUNION employees. Remember, the unions carved out a nice deal in one of the smoke filled back rooms.

This is the second of three reasons the company is changing the way it pays for health care. The others would have been there regardless but the 40% tax weighs heavily on any business. If you want less of something, tax it. We see that here.

Boeing is another in an ever growing list of companies that are either cutting or changing their health care plans as a result of Obamacare. As I see it, the employees will have one of three options.

They can join the union and enjoy the special carve-out (a desired effect of the con game).

They can pay the increase and be thankful they were able to keep what they have.

Or they can vote the miserable pukes who gave us this mess out of office.

90,000 votes can make a big difference in many districts.

Obamacare, not what it was hyped up to be.

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    I’m just waiting for my letter. I work for a small company, so it won’t be national news. But I’m expecting to get a 300% increase or so in my premium. When I do, at least I currently have the option of refusing coverage (because I won’t be able to afford it and pay my rent — currently I pay almost $600 a month).

    I will be very interested in what happens next. I wonder if government will go with the original plan, and throw me in jail for refusing coverage; or if they’ll change the plan and force my employer to force me to buy it.

    I’d like to see them throw me in jail- that would make the news, I am afraid- but it would make my end rather interesting, and I confess, I rather like stirring the pot, so bring it on, you Kenyan poseur, I DARE YOU.
    Here and now I vow I will NEVER pay for insurance from the gubbmint.
