BTW, we told you liberals this would happen......we told you that once Obamacare was passed businesses would start dropping their healthcare coverage for their employees....most have started to drop spouses, and others are cutting back on hours so they don't have to provide it for them....paying the penalty tax or fee is cheaper, because that's what the socialists in government wanted all along....a single payer system.
It isn't "free" and never was advertised as that.
Most businesses can afford to keep healthcare for their employees and not cut their hours. The ones that are primarily doing it are the greedy, selfish bastards who are using it as a ploy to debate the policy. They'd rather do whatever it takes to keep more money in their pockets than actually help provide for the people who make their businesses go round.
