    Many people now receiving employer paid health insurance will probably lose it, thanks to the postponement.  Even employers who offer good insurance will be looking for any way to boost the bottom line by dumping their health plans, making employees buy it on their own.

    It's a huge cash windfall for companies.

      There is no reason whatsoever to have employers as middlemen for insurance.  Do you have any actual support for an argument that the best outcome is being achieved via a terrible method?
