    So he has a worse plan and they are paying more for healthcare.

    As for who lies more...., yeah keep thinking that career politicians don't lie
    BS

      I'm not aware of any provision in the PPACA that requires individuals to be dropped from their spouse's plan if their employer offers one. Sounds like a load of bull.

        Of course there isn't but the plans have to adjust to what Obamacare says they will need to cover so the prices are going up for companies. They need to either swallow some more of the cost or throw it all onto the employees which will be an extremely unpopular move.

          actually not, but go ahead and try to prove your point.

            Hmmm...the fact that I'm in frequent contact with TPL insurance firms for my job that tell me almost that exact thing makes me pretty confident that I am correct. Also that whole working with CMS to get ACA compliant for the state MMIS I'm consulting on too. I suppose you could say I'm pretty familiar with the topic.

            Insurance firms did not find out about all the fine print regulations of the ACA until days before its launch so they made premeditated moves to become compliant with the widely speculated rules. This involved cutting a lot of the plans that people were comfortable with. That's why delaying some of the portions of the law are pointless for your large insurance firms (not speaking about local state exchanges because they may behave differently and I'm not as familiar with all of them) because they aren't going to roll back just to implement again the same cuts next year.

            So then back to what Errand said, it is becoming more and more frequent for companies to drop spousal coverage if the spouse can purchase their own insurance via their place of business because that can mask the amount the company is passing onto the employee in increased rates. It's not unethical, and not even a part of ACA so I disagree with him there, but it just sucks for those affected and I can only assume those companies are willing to take the talent hit.

              But the Obama supporters need to desperately cling to that idea that everyone will benefit in the end and be holding hands and signing songs to Obama's greatness, so you can't be believed. It just can't be true because Obama would never lie about anything. Reality interferes too often with utopia for them.

                Let's be real here: The only reason right-wingnuts like you aren't lining up to blow Obama is because (a) he's black, and (b) he's a Democrat.

                The ACA was conceived by your buddies at Heritage, and it was beta tested as "Romneycare" before it was re-branded as "Obamacare."

                Apparently, pesky little facts like these simply don't matter to Fox News-watching mouth breathers like you.

                  The fact is that Romneycare can work in wealthy states that have a high degree of coverage to begin with. But all I can speak about is what I'm seeing and dealing with in the business as it currently stands and it is chaos. The scariest part of all this is the expansion of Medicaid option, which ironically was in Romneycare. Doctor's can very easily drop Medicaid since it takes a long time to get paid for services. Those patients are then going to be forced to either travel absurdly long distances or go to the ER for basic care since they won't be able to afford even the basic packages for Obamacare.

                    BS. insurance companies practically wrote the damn law. which every insurance company has been aware of over the last 20 years when obamacare was first conceived by the heritage foundation. insurance co. are well aware of what's in obamacare, from 20 yrs ago when it was conceived,to romneycare to what they call it now.everybody and there mother knows what's in obamacare when it comes to ins. companies.

                        BS to you. They had plenty of input but they had no idea what the specifics were. Why do you think actuaries were scrambling like mad to come up with rates that would be compliant? Everything prior to Go Live was a projection because they could not create the rates based of speculation. This is also the reason why you saw the delay of people being notified that they were going to lose their current plans.
