Seven million will lose insurance under Obama health law
Washington Times ^ | 2/5/13 | Steven Dinan

Posted on 02/05/2013 12:16:07 PM PST by illiac

President Obama's health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

CBO said that this year's tax cuts have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they'll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.

But the non-partisan agency also expects fewer people to have to pay individual penalties to the IRS than it earlier projects, because of a better method for calculating incomes that found more people will be exempt.

Overall, the new health provisions are expected to cost the government $1.165 trillion over the next decade — the same as last year's projection.

Remember all those articles about peoples’ hours being cut to avoid 0bamaCare?

I’ll bet more than 7 million will be affected. I’d guess well over 10 million.

But that’s the point of 0bamaCare: Implement something so unworkable that Single Payer (The Government Owns Your Body) becomes the next step.

The results don’t matter as long as the intentions were good. In any event, we can fix this by raising taxes on the rich.

They have destroyed a near perfect health care system and in the process will cause people to die.

And your average sheeperal, to this day, will claim that 0bamacare made medical care free on demand.

Single payer never becomes the next step ~ this is a taxing scheme and has nothing whatsoever to do with medical care.

I HATE him I honestly do.

I Hate The Whore from Nebraska who now works as a lobbyist for this sh!t.

I Hate Roger Taney Roberts for getting in bed with Ubama when we could have gotten rid of every single part of it.

I Hate most of all the people who voted for this POS, because their votes effect ME and MY Family, the people who didn't want any of this are are being forced to fork over Thousands of Dollars I don't have.

I HATE all of you.

This figure doesn’t even start to count those who will be pushed out from their insurance as the rates skyrocket and companies start folding up.

Pluys all of those whose insurance is subsidised by the Government employment, when they stop subsidising and force all of those people onto Obamacare.

Yes it’s coming Government employees.

Exactly...they are trying to replace the money they stole from our senior citizens through the social security ponzi scheme.

This is why both parties want to allow 20 million more illegals in so they can tax them as well.

Remember it started at 1% then went to 7%, then became taxable, then your generation paid for the generation before you.

Now they are hosed and they don’t have the money...it was stolen through appropriations.

Governments do not produce ... they can only tax....so now we all have to pay the money back into the system that they stole over the years so we get things like mandatory insurance and massive amnesty programs

not only will the costs go up.....but the quality of care will go down...many good Doctors will quit...I bet we have Cuban doctors in 10 years....you will see the deevolution of our medical system..hospitals in disrepair...under staffed..dirty...and guess what...Obamacare has nothing in it about trial lawyers...so they will sue to high heaven..and shut many hospitals down...Medical tourism will become the big new vacation...

A pretty good deal...if you're the government. Free money!

I’m with you!

But hang around to see the looks on the faces when the healthcare workers who voted for _______ will be working for the government at extremely reduces wages. And they’ll see their parents and grandparents being sent home to die.

Over 300 people in the company I work for (including myself) lost our health care plans last week because of this new free system.

No, sorry, close but no cigar.

More like, "I got my healthcare from Obama! I got my free **** from Obama, he Santa Claus! Free ice cream!"

There's your low-information angle on it.

Prediction: Obamacare will not be repealed.

Howell Raines made that call in 2008, the fix was in even before the election. That's why John Boehner refused to listen to the Tea Party people or give Michele Bachmann a leadership post even though she and Sarah Palin had handed him the Speaker's gavel in 2011 .....

The Business Roundtable and the Chamber want employment-based health insurance to go away, period, and Boehner is obeying them. Obama's the fall guy, but they'll all benefit.

That's what Raines said in October, 2008, and it's all coming true. As for Boehner .... he won't have any health insurance problems. He's all right, Jack, he and all the rest of those creatures up in DC.

Many of the “new jobs created” are due to companies gradually laying off full time employees and replacing them with part-timers.
