"Pass the Bill To Find Out...." ...How Truly Awful It Is

And the more we find out about ObamaCare, the more it deserves REPEAL.

(John Boehner, are you listening, or just getting tanned on a beach someplace???)

...As they study the law, employers are discovering another provision that got much less attention. If a company offers coverage but requires any full-time employees to pay premiums that amount to more than 9.5 percent of their household income, the coverage is deemed unaffordable, and the employer may have to pay a penalty.

...The Mercer survey found that one-third of employers had some workers for whom coverage might be “unaffordable,” meaning that the workers’ share of premiums — in the absence of federal assistance — would consume more than 9.5 percent of their household income. --NYTimes

As usual, Congress put zero thought into this; if one or the other spouse becomes un-employed, the "household income" drops and the OTHER spouse's employer gets socked.

Smooth moves, bozos.
