Tis so sad that there are so many ignorant people in Oklahoma.

Will they ever get an education or will they leave their ability to think to jerks on Topix?

<quoted text>You should pull your head out of the red clay and do some research. The employers that you are referring to, have been lowering wages and benefits long before Obamacare was ever conceived. You don't have to take my word for it, just ask Doesntmatter.
Many started lowering hours and cutting back on employees because of the down fall of the economy. But now it has more to do with Obamacare. Do you realize just because health insurance is and has been offered to employees that it was not law that that they have it. But now it is law that everyone be covered by health insurance and all the law requires is the employer to cover their employees and not the whole family. Mainly this is what the main issue I was referring to. So if the spouse does not have a job and the spouse that does have one and their employer decides not to offer the family plans now where does that leave that family?

Nope... had you noticed you would have seen at top of that post it said Example of how calculater works.

I wouldn't have Obamacare even if it was free or they were paying me. I'm looking forward to its collapse and failure and it will.

Only thing I can imagine any funnier to watch live on TV would be Obama's Impeachment and Removal from Office.

I know of several families facing this problem right now. I know one employer that keeps busy and has tried hiring people but because the job requires physical labor they don't want to have to work that hard for a living. But the cost of Obamacare is having them revamp their healthcare policies to their employees because they are not a large change employer where other stores can make up others loss if need be the case.

Well I did as you said with my same example but information as you described and results are below, you're right. They are S.O.L.

Example:
1. Select a State OK
Enter your zip code 74033
2. Enter income as 2014 Dollars
3. Enter annual income (dollars) 45,000.00
4. Is employer coverage available? yes
5. Number of people in family
6. Number of adults (21 and older) enrolling in exchange coverage
Age 30 Uses Tobacco? NO
Age 30 Uses Tobacco? NO
7. Number of children (20 and younger) enrolling in exchange coverage
How many Children use Tobacco? NO

Results:
In general, employees who are offered insurance through work are not eligible for subsidized exchange coverage, so long as their insurance meets specified requirements. You would only be eligible for subsidized exchange coverage if your income is between 1 and 4 times the federal poverty level and you would have to pay more than 9.5% of your household income for your own coverage through the insurance offered by your employer.

I was putting the question to another poster that told me to do the research.
I read this post of yours and it was very interesting.

Since who I am posting to thinks I am from the dark ages I will say "back in the day" when we started our family the employer my husband worked for offered the family and "back in the day" most large employers did. Most offered it where the employer paid 80% of the premium and the employee paid the 20% of the premium and the deductibles and what ever else was required. Now If we had to gone a bought the health insurance for me and the 3 kids because employers would only insure their employees it would have put a grave hardship on our budget. So imagine what it will be doing to those now should their employers do what many are all ready doing. You find what ever excuse you want about why this is happening but the simple fact is Obamacare along with the economy is not working for the majority of the people.

You're so uninformed it's amazing.
Everyone is eligible for the Health Exchanges.
Coverage at work doesn't disqualify participation.

Try a little to know at least some of the facts.

No you are not. You're right on. The calculater page is like what one will use to decide what they want when it is time to enroll or get the answer that they can't afford it and I left another link where one can go and price something away from Obamacare cheaper.

www.optout.org and watch their videos. One of them explains in detail what they are about and just look around their website. There should be a toll free number on there somewhere you can even call. I've seen enough now I have no doubt Obamacare will collapse under its own weight. No one has to sign up right away unless they just want to. I advise not sign up just yet for those that have opposed it and lets see what happens but... to each his own.

Cannot Republicans read and understand?

Do they have to have fox news and prickly heat tell them how to live and how bad the government is to them?

Tea baggers have had their 15 minutes of fame and at last they will whimper out.

Don Lemon is the latest journalist to come clean about Obamacare. They know they’ll need to stop lying, or risk losing their credibility with the public.

Don Lemon raised the ire of many when he played into Fox News and Bill O’Reilly’s blanket attack on minorities. Some believed he may have been auditioning for a new Fox News gig and adopting their faux news methodology more closely. Don Lemon was no different than most other traditional media journalists. He like others have been rolled over by a well-organized and orchestrated Right Wing, Tea Party, Republican machine that have allowed the use of the national airwaves to misinform, lie to, and confuse their listeners.

This week Don Lemon began his process of atonement. He used his Tuesday’s Tom Joyner radio segment to come clean. What is interesting is that he referenced many fact checks he should have known and every legitimate journalist should have known when Republicans were spewing their venomous lies into the American psyche. Don Lemon, Chuck Todd, and most traditional journalists are responsible for being the conduits Republicans used to misinform.

Don Lemon now admits that Republicans are holding Americans hostage instead of telling them the truth. He said it is hard for them to tell the citizens the truth after not being above-board (lying) to them for years. He said the three biggest whoppers (lies) are that it is a job killer, that it will raise insurance premiums, and that it would affect ones medical care. He fact checked them all and said they are lies. Now one would hope he will do the same on air when at CNN.

I like Don Lemon but he could never be on Fox as he is gay. The bigots that are on that station are constitutionally incapable of being honest or fair and he seems to be both.
