It's Not Just MickeyD's Insurance Getting Yanked

The health policy offered by McDonald's is called a "mini" plan because it provides limited benefits. But it's very cheap at $14.00/week, so with no alternative offering, people use it.

But ObamaCare makes the plan un-doable with its "85%" mandate. About 30,000 McDonald's employees may be forced off the plan.

But McDonald's is not the ONLY entity which provides this plan.

...Many other major companies that offer mini-med plans will also be affected, including Home Depot Inc., Disney Worldwide Services, CVS Caremark Corp., Staples Inc. and Blockbuster Inc.

A number of States have petitioned HHS to make an exception to the 85% rule.

But not Wisconsin.

Question for Barrett: Will YOU ask HHS for an exemption?

Another reason for the corporate bigwigs to pull the rug under the common person. Why not protest that action? Just another excuse for big business to make profits at the expense of workers.
