House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans Press Release :: Documents Show Companies See Incentive in Dropping Health Coverage
House Energy and Commerce Committee Republicans Press Release :: Documents Show Companies See Incentive in Dropping Health Coverage: "“Turns out ObamaCare means if you like your health plan you can lose it. The president didn’t have to actually strong-arm companies into dumping their employee health insurance because his bill carried financial incentives to virtually guarantee that result,” Barton said. “But something’s very wrong when, like AT&T found out, paying $600 million in penalties will allow you to stop paying $2.4 billion for insurance, leaving both workers and taxpayers stuck. I suppose we can’t know for some years how many thousands, hundreds of thousands or even millions of workers will lose their company insurance because of health care reform, but I know that it will be a breach of faith for most of them and a tragedy for some.”"
