I have 100 employees about 60-70 full-time which I consider to be a small business so yes obamacare is not good for me nor my business.  My business survives on Medicaid funds and my state has a shortage of Medicaid funds so again this obamacare will cost states to allocate more medicaid funds toward it which means less to help my business.  Again, I am getting kicked from both sides!

Is it not true that if my employees qualify for the government insurance and my plan isnt meeting the standard that I pay a tax???

While I highly doubt they will drop their coverage (we have had sustained growth for several years and the Co-op's Board of Directors sees itself as very socially responsible and has been offering coverage for years), if they did I would enroll with Commonwealth Care (more widely known as Romneycare); it's lowest plan for someone my demo is $18 monthly premiums (with relatively high co-pays).

Like I said it's not perfect, there should be a higher cap, and there should be a Public Option so the onus isn't saddled on business owners.

go ahead and take jabs at the South but helluva lot more people from North move down here than vice versa...lower taxes, better weather, more affordable housing......we have our rednecks but so does every other part of the country

I didn't mean to be a dick about the South, I just felt like I was responding to what other guys said first. I'm from the sticks, its 3+ hours to any city with a pro team, farms everywhere, rednecks everywhere.

I HATE political threads. LOL. I told myself I would stay away until the election but Roberts fucked that all up!

If the guys in here with their own business say it s bad(Obamacare) I believe them before any DEM or REPUB......saw some Doctors on TV last night and they talked about its bad deal too...........of course business owners and Doctors were not  part of the process.

Politicians know whats best for all us,  right?   (sarcasm)

Like I said earlier, DM, people who actually WORK in the healthcare industry KNOW this is a disaster of epic proportions. They have been preparing for this for 3 years now. It's a REAL MESS.
