  •  I think you're right. The insurance plans (10+ / 0-)

    from the exchanges have to start coverage in 2014, and they have to be up and running so that people can pick the plans starting around October or so of this year.  I don't know how the accountant could be saying that Obamacare is costing this business money, unless he is lying (or the business owner is lying about what the accountant said).

    If the accountant believes Obamacare is costing his client money, then I would believe he's not a good accountant because he has his facts and figures wrong.  If the business owner is putting the blame on the accountant and the accountant didn't say that, then I would expect the accountant to drop that business as a client so he wouldn't lose other clients because it makes him appear to be an incompetent accountant.

    Or maybe one or both really are calculating that presenting themselves as ignorant bigots will be better for themselves than just staying quiet about this and following the law.  Any publicity is good publicity, and that rot.

    I feel sorry that those two fired workers have been held out as a reason for the political position but I hope they land on their feet with a company that actually is happy if their workers are healthy and not a sickness hazard.

    I am not an accountant or a specialist in Obamacare - maybe there's some corner case that is costing these guys more money than they'd have to spend without it.    Still, I'm glad I don't have to do business with these guys.
