UPS drops health benefits for 15,000
spouses. An Obamacare bellwhether?

Christian Science Monitor, by Mark Trumbull

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 8/24/2013 5:33:26 PM

One of the basic pledges President Obama has made regarding his health-care reforms is that “if you like the plan you have, you can keep it.” It’s also a pledge that could come back to bite, politically. The latest sign of that is the news, made public this week, that shipping company UPS will no longer make health insurance benefits available to some 15,000 employee spouses. In announcing the change, the company referred to Obamacare as a reason it is having to battle to contain health-care costs. This news comes alongside other signs that employers – the largest source of health insurance

If you are still seeing rainbows, puppies and butterflies as 0bamaCare creeps closer to being implemented, better check that "choom" you must be smoking.

If most people´s health care insurance gets sabotaged by Obama Care caused changes the Democrats are going to get wiped out in the next election.

Usually - this is the time of year companies have their open enrollment / options / changes for health/dental/optical insurance.

I don´t doubt we´ll be hearing more of this in the weeks to come - and lots of fireworks!

And again next year right around election time when the next open enrollment period happens.

Original OP is pretty good.

Anybody who thinks the government can take over 1/6 of the economy AND add 40 million customers while DRIVING PRICES DOWN is just mentally retarded. But that is the definition of the Dem voters.

Funny, months ago I made comment about a wave of change in motion....if you think it stops here you are crazy. The next phase will be coming soon...you will only be offered single rate insurance.....those who need family coverage will have to dig deep in their pockets to pay the difference...l a gift from the liberal leaders.... Please remember that when you go to the polls next time!

What else did non brain dead employees expect? Most spouses are women and how else can employers avoid the budget killing free birth control and abortions mandate.
More companies will be laying off women employees to finish the purge.

This shouldn´t surprise anyone. For the last several years, my company has been charging extra to cover spouses who can get healthcare coverage through their employer. What we´re seeing now is the next logical step.

ObamaKKKare is the whole shegang ~ the removal of state regulation from health insurers and pre-paid medical programs, the individual mandate where your kid goes to federal prison on his 27th birthday for not buying insurance he can´t afford, the minimum coverage provisions that make Catholics pay for abortions and Jews pay for removing tattoos from the arms and legs of reformed neo-nazi biker gang members..... all of it ~ not just the business of using the EXCHANGE.

The federales, including Congress, have been covered by the requirement they use an Exchange for decades!

It´s called FEHB. You have little choice in what you get ~ OMB puts it all out for bid, and you might be in one state and that offering will be far different from what you´d get in another state.

Still, federal employees abroad still get coverage ~ such that it is.

What happend to Congress was they thought they´d been treated like any employee of a large company. instead somebody slipped a rider into the bill that said they had to get their insurance at a state exchange instead of the FEHB exchange.

Except that it will cost you and I, the taxpaying public, far more to do it that way than when they got the lowest possible cost insurance through FEHB exchange, i´m not sure how this idea came about that the Congress had exempted itself from anything.

One Republican proposal was that ALL Americans be allowed to buy their insurance through the FEHB exchange ~ and that would save the country hundreds of billions of dollars.

No idea what happened to that one ~ instead we ended up with this poisonous prehistoric millipede that wants to suck our guts out.

Nancy Pelosi can talk talk talk about the "war on women" all she wants, but through this Obamacare act, she and her Dem cronies have damaged women more than any other U.S. law in recent times (maybe ever). While trying to get adults classified as "children" up to age 26, she forgot to put in the law that spouses had to covered. One might argue that her sexist attitudes so obscured her thinking, that she just ASSUMED that spouses would be covered. Now the good-for-nothing college graduate son living in the basement playing video games has to be covered and you have to pay for abortions for the slutty daughter in college, but the woman of the house gets kicked off the health plan. Thanks, Nancy.

#11 ~ UAW and APWU contracts take care of that problem ~ but most don´t. I think the ol´man gets hissef´ a self only policy when the kids hit their 20s.

But, think of this one. Your typical family policy costs a bit more than double a self only policy on most corporate plans ~ even the gub´mnt plan. If you have two a-dults married together and they work at the same place, they can get two self only policies and cut the kids out all together while they pay less!

It really does look like the Democrats had somebody in there with a bad attitude toward marriage who went through the legislation and set it up so that it really did discriminate against marriage and family.

Mentally ill types like Pelosi (who´s been suffering from serious brain deficiencies for years) imagined they had it in the bag with their focus on birth control accoutrements, twenty somethings and gay marriage ~ but they didn´t. Somebody a lot smarter than them, and probably more evil ~ if that´s possible ~ got there ahead of them.

There may be no bigger natural liar in the history of the American Presidency than Barack Hussein Obama. Some Americans knew it from the get-go, some have now figured it out over the last 5 years, ... and some will never recognize it, never admit it, or never care about it simply because the president is black and/or promises to confiscate the earnings of the successful, to perpetrate ObamaCare, and transfer those "legally STOLEN" earnings for their benefit and reparations, in exchange for their automatic democrat votes.

Imagine the absurdity of illegal aliens getting full coverage for free under Obamacare,including organ transplants and kidney/cancer treatments but the spouse of a working person gets the boot from coverage.Having to cover gay spouses has to rub some companies the wrong way.

When liberal utopian plans meet the real world,only calamity can happen.

There´s people on the right that are saying all this was part of their plan to go to single payer but I don´t think so. I think these morons actually thought this would work,40% of the population paying for heathcare for 100% of the population.No taxes on the rich to pay for this because most rich peole are liberals.

If you look at who is hardest hit by this,it´s the white middle class Obama claims to be working hard for.Reduced work hours are to keep the white middle class in check from getting ahead.

Issa: IRS coordinated with
Dems to attack tea party group.
Washington Times, by Stephen Dinan    Original Article

House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa on Wednesday accused his Democratic counterpart, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, of coordinating with the IRS to attack one of the tea party groups that was targeted by the tax agency for intrusive scrutiny and long delays. Mr. Issa and five other top Republicans said they have just last week been given emails showing Mr. Cummings sought information from the IRS about True the Vote, a conservative tax-exempt organization that drew the ire of liberals for pushing states to eliminate potentially bogus names from their voter rolls. Mr. Issa said the IRS employees appear to have

Imagine a world where drones never have to touch the ground after takeoff. That’s what MIT PhD. candidate Joseph Moore did, and now he’s on the cusp of creating a drone that can “perch” on power lines just like birds to recharge its batteries. Mr. Moore gave Business Insider a demonstration of the technology he’s perfecting by using a glider as proof of concept. In short, if a drone is equipped with the a magnetometer it should be possible to make the aircraft capable of identifying magnetic fields given off by power lines, hone in on the signal they emit, and then maneuver in such a way that would allow the drone to perch

The National Guard is following a direct order — but it’s not happy with it. All of the Guard’s AH-64 Apache helicopters are scheduled to go to the active Army, and there’s nothing its top brass can do about it. “None of us like what we’re having to do,” National Guard Chief Gen. Frank Grass told members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday, the military website Defense One reported. “My big concern right now is figuring out how I’m going to move, and how many states I’m going to have an impact on, and what’s the cost of facilities and to retrain pilots. I’ve got to tackle that because the decision’s been made.”

Nearly five months after Alec Baldwin was fired by MSNBC for using anti-gay slurs, the actor has again waded into troubled waters by sending a homophobic tweet to a former Mitt Romney aide. First reported by Buzzfeed, Mr. Baldwin got into it with former Romney aide Garrett Jackson after the actor sent out a tweet criticizing the Keystone XL pipeline documentary “Above All Else.” “The film Above All Else shows how oil, and keystone in particular, destroy our lives,” Mr. Baldwin said.

IRS workers in several offices have been openly supporting President Obama, including by donning pro-Obama paraphernalia and urging callers to reelect the president in 2012, according to allegations contained in a new government watchdog report. A report by the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, released Wednesday, cited accusations that workers at a Dallas IRS office may have violated federal law by wearing pro-Obama items like shirts, stickers and buttons. The Hatch Act forbids Executive Branch workers from engaging in partisan political activity. The report comes as two House committees move to take action against former IRS

Washington - Less than three months before the Boston Marathon bombings, a bitter, frustrated Tamerlan Tsarnaev visited a federal immigration office in the Boston area and signed forms seeking to legally change his first name. Eager to recast himself in the model of a well-known rebel figure killed by Russian forces in 2009, Tsarnaev chose as his new name "Muaz," according to a previously undisclosed Homeland Security Department petition form, which was obtained by The Times. It was not only a tribute to Emir Muaz, a celebrated fighter in Russia´s Dagestan republic, it was also the nickname rebels had given Tsarnaev

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.
