Obamas signature legislation. Brought to you entirely by democrats with ZERO votes from republicans. No one to blame, liberals. This is all YOU. Well done, deep thinkers!

OUCH! This is going to get real ugly, real soon--------------------------------------------------------------The coverage shift is “consistent with the way many large employers are responding to the costs associated with the health care reform legislation,” according to the memo. White-collar employees’ children will retain coverage, according to the memo.

This should be entertaining. Chime in, Obama apologists. Cant wait for the blame to begin. - Heck, 3M did this very thing years ago. If the non 3M spouse had coverage available through their employer, they had to take it or else the 3Mer would pay double contribution. Now 3M retirees can't even get group rates thru 3M. They dropped the retirees like hot potatoes. And this is a company who touted "our employees are our greatest resources/assets." Yeah, sure.

Wow, amazing really since it was not even in existence." == I think the point of the first post was that other companies have done this long before Obamacare and UPS is just using it as an excuse to pull the same rotten stunt. Smaller employers have been pushing the cost of spouse and dependent premiums onto employeess for years (long before Obamacare), now more of the larger companies will do the same thing and pretend the reason is the ACA.
