The fact is we already have a health care consortium if you want to buy a $30 a year Sams or Costco club membership.
With over 1.4 million employees Walmart through Sams has opened up their heath care to the country.
If you own a small business you probably already know this but if you are employed and don't know what things cost or where you can buy them you have no clue about the availability of health care.
Even with this huge number of people participating.. almost the same number as we have citizens in delaware the cost for health care is beyond most people who live in delaware.
THAT IS IF YOU WANT A NO LIMITS PLAN LIKE OBAMACARE REQUIRES....
Honestly there is no plan that complies with ObamaCare but the most expensive plan you can buy will cost you in the area of 15,000 for a single person in good health....
For most of delaware that is cutting close to half your income unless you are a manager or business owner.
and if you work at Walmart full time and get paid minimum wage your yearly income is under the amount it will cost you for health care if you wanted to buy it on your own.
Honestly the cost will not go down.
You can expect that the highest priced plan you can buy before the mandate kicks in will be less today then the compliant plan is in 2014.
I suggest you all do some reasearch on what plans cost today....
because when your employer drops you ... you will need to pay out of pocket for yourself and your family
And if you live in Delaware.. do not expect to get Medicaid as a stop gap.
The Court said there is no requirement for expansion of Medicaid and only people that make under $11,000 a year will qualify.
YEA HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR SOCIALISM
And if you did not notice.....
Home depot fired tens of thousands of mid level managers
and Walmart just got rid of all their door greeters...
YEA GOOD LUCK TO US ALL because our economy is about to implode.
I hope you arent a service worker that works at a Gas Station, Hotel, Bar, Restaurant or retail store... they are our largest employment sector nationally over 80 million people
