It appears Congress recently subpoenaed records from four big US employers: AT&T, Verizon, Caterpillar and Deere. In the process they discovered all four are seriously considering DROPPING their employee health care plans completely. It's simply cheaper for them to push the employees onto the goverment system and pay the $2,000 per employee fine for not providing health insurance. So what's the result? A federal defict trillions of dollars larger than expected and millions more people recieving what I believe will be a sub-par government sponsored health care.
What a mess.
