Well the fact that you didn't address the issue of whether or not your husband is being compensated for his health insurance leaves me to believe he is.
From what I am hearing and reading, the exchanges ARE offering lower costs for many people. At this point, it is hard to tell whether premiums are higher or lower. Liberal leaning news sources print positive stories and conservative leaning news sources print negative stories.
The IRS IS NOT involved in healthcare. It is doing exactly what they have always done....handled tax credits and tax collection. Period. They are not involved in administering the new law. They will not be auditing individuals to certify that they have obtained health insurance. Those rumors are nothing more than another Republican conspiracy theory that can be traced right back to the Republicans on the House Ways and Means Committee. It's nonsense.
"IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman testified before a hearing of the House Ways and Means Committee March 25 that the IRS won’t be auditing individuals to certify that they have obtained health insurance. He said insurance companies will issue forms certifying that individuals have coverage that meets the federal mandate, similar to a form that lenders use to verify the amount of interest someone has paid on their home mortgage. "We expect to get a simple form, that we won’t look behind, that says this person has acceptable health coverage," Shulman said. "So there’s not going to be any discussions about health coverage with an IRS employee."

Oh, we see, know-it-all...

The IRS is "Not" involved in health care.

Nothing was said about compensation. Just that all employees will lose their coverage in 2015.

All insurance companies are required under ObamaCare to report to the IRS the name, address, identification number and type of policy purchased by every customer along with a determination whether the insurance was “government-approved” for purposes of complying with Obamacare’s individual mandate.

The IRS will receive massive new amounts of personal health information from virtually all Americans. The agency’s ability to manage the health records it already receives has come under scrutiny.

An unnamed healthcare provider in California is suing the IRS and 15 unnamed agents alleging that they improperly seized some 60 million medical records of 10 million Americans including medical records of all California state judges on March 11, 2011.

Of course, these allegations raise concerns about the IRS’s competence to manage the confidential health details of millions of American citizens.

Also, the ACA has at least 500 provisions and more than 40 amend or add provisions to the tax code. This will require hundreds of additional IRS agents and thousands of taxpayers' dollars.

You see the problem...

Are you "all for" everyone paying their "fair share?" How about everyone pulls the entitlement wagon? Why should nearly half of the population not pay income tax?
Only in America could the rich pay 86% of all income taxes, then be accused by parasitic slouches that they're not paying their "fair share."
First of all, it isn't the "rich" who are paying 86% of all income taxes. Using 2009 figures as reported by the national Taxpayers Union, the top 1% pays 36.73% of total income taxes which is comparable to the percentage of overall income they represent. The top 25%(those with incomes above $66,193) pay 87.30%. That is not "the rich!.

It really sad fact is that nearly half of the population does not make enough money to pay income tax while the Romney's of the world only pay a 14% income tax rate.

You're damn right the parasitic top 1% are not paying their fair share.

I can't recall the companies that were increasing salaries. I believe I posted the information before but will look for it again. However, it only makes common sense the salary increases come from the funds the company was using to pay for the employee's insurance.
Now, Darden Restaurants, Sears, IBM, Time Warner and other corporations are putting retirees into private exchanges but they are providing a voucher to buy coverage. Walgreens is doing the exact same thing with ALL of it's employees.
IMO, Lois's posting that her husband would have "No more employer-based insurance after January 2015" isn't necessarily a bad thing at all. It's only a bad thing if his company isn't going to compensate him in some way. A half truth is still a lie.
Some companies will drop employee coverage because ObamaKKKare makes the insurance too expensive...and any "savings" will go toward paying the tax to the government...

...most companies have never provided any additional compensation to employees who did not require the coverage...

...the majority of retirees never have received any medical benefits from their former employers...

you live in a dream world that does not reflect current reality...

Ray is so f*cking stupid he doesn't get that the wealthy pay so much of the income tax because they earn most of the money & own most of the wealth.
As the rich get richer & claim higher & higher percentages of this country's wealth, Ray is too stupid to get that it is at his expense.
Ray & the right are so duped, they lie & support the idea that there has been a redistribution of wealth towards the wealthy for decades. Ray even likes this.
Ray thinks the wealthy actually earned this & dod not accomplish this through influencing (buying) politicians to alter the tax codes toward their favor.
Ray is a typical dumbass uninformed right whiner.
"real dumb"
You are a typical liberal loon. You hate those are successful. Tell me what expense have you been hit with because some are successful? You should be in hog heaven, they pay Federal Income taxes so moochers like you can keep your hand out. Who adjusted the tax code so nearly 1/2 of American's who have a job do not pay Federal Income taxes?
