The Affordable Care Act expands tax credits to help small businesses provide health insurance to their workers. Companies with fewer than 50 employees do not have to provide insurance, but even for these businesses, ObamaCare will make it easier and cheaper if they choose to do so.

Choke on your frightwingnut stupidity.
No shit, dope, that is what I said. Those small businesses with more than 50 employees are either cutting hours, creating part-time positions, or cutting the work force below 50. Duh. Your so-called information isn't gathered from breathing individuals like mine, it's gathered from media outlets. Try talking to real people that this ACA is effecting. Until then, your rhetoric is just that, rhetoric!

I see. Now that I used your 24/7 frightwingnut source Fox News, it's all of a sudden my rhetoric.

ACA requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide health insurance

Over 96% of companies with more than 50 employees already provide health insurance to their employees. And contrary to Republicans claiming otherwise, studies show the vast majority of those employers do not plan to drop or reduce that coverage because of ObamaCare.

Also, there is no evidence that ObamaCare has led to companies slashing full-time workers. In fact, since ObamaCare passed in March 2010, over 90% of the gain in employment has been full-time positions.

Still, we know that companies that can afford to provide health insurance to their workers and yet fail to do so off-set the costs of care onto the rest of us — whether the cost of emergency room treatment that gets passed on to other consumers, or Medicaid coverage that we pay for as taxpayers.

In Florida alone, more than 50,000 workers at companies like McDonald’s and Burger King are on the state’s Medicaid rolls. Especially with tax credits available to small businesses, there is no excuse for companies to pass the buck. And 75% of Americans support this element of ObamaCare

Once again, you use media sources to support your rhetoric. Some of the largest corps. have dropped coverage to the families of their employees, Fed Ex is one of them. Advance auto parts is considering it. You don't get it, do you? The ACA actually has placed more people into the un-insured roles. I hope your are ready for a new tax to be placed upon the working class to cover the short-falls in the ACA exchanges, because I guarantee you, there is going to be major shortfalls. I am still waiting on an answer from any one of you Odumbocare supporters- HOW ARE THE ILLEGALS' HEALTHCARE COSTS BEING COVERED??????

Once again you use yourself as a source. "I guarantee you, there is going to be major shortfalls". I'm happy I'm on the same thread as the topix expert on healthcare. What would the country do without the preeminant authority on Obamacare. Since you're the self proclaimed expert, why don't you give us all the best cheapest solution to rising healthcare costs?

Not me, pal. All of the small businesses I work with in a years time are my sources. Do you have any living, breathing, sources at all? You must not, because your rhetoric is regurgitated media fluff. As long as the medical industry makes up 1/6th of our economy, there will be no relief in rising healthcare costs, that is my point, ACA did not resolve that issue, it only forced more people into an already bloated, self-serving, corrupt system.

The Affodable Care Act is law. Time for reTHUGlicans to accept it just as they did the socialistic Bush "No Child Left Behind" law.

Otherwise, you just look like criminals and hypocrites, you know.:)
