  •  Too many loopholes in Obamacare (1+ / 0-)

    But their concerns about the potential for working hours to be eroded to less than 30 per week, and the potential for employers to ditch their health plans have increased.
    Potential. It has already happened. Obamacare unwittingly caused many people to lose their insurance through their employers.

    One could argue that these companies were going to drop health insurance anyway, amid rising health care costs. Yet the loopholes gave them a reason to do it now, when the economy was still recovering.

    I just hope that more companies unionize. That will be the only way to get health insurance in this economy. Yet that won't work for the fast food restaurants and places like Trader Joes and Walmart. That is where boycotts come in, yet it is very difficult for a boycott to work in this sluggish economy.

    •  Yet I'm keeping my fingers crossed on the ACA. (0+ / 0-)

      If done right, it may lower the costs of heathcare. If companies want to play "Atlas Shrugged" with this, than they will bring us down with their companies.
