Then I guess so are the dozen or so article written about people in my exact same position. Google employer provided insurance ObamaCare.<quoted text>
From what you have said here, your employer is probably very much like you and, based on what Rush Limbaugh told him, he decided that neither he nor his employees would be able to afford to pay for health insurance anymore, or even worse was afraid that continuing to pay would somehow allow President Obama to establish mind control over him and canceled it without understanding the facts. That is the same type of "thinking" that caused you not to complete the application process to buy your own insurance through the marketplace.
Your story about having good employer provided medical coverage that disappeared because of the ACA is simply not believable.
BTW my employer is not politically motivated. He listens to Howard Stern or sports.
