In addition to layoffs, employers are starting to cut hours because employees that work less than 30 hours don't have to be given company funded healthcare. Which means more people will have to file for assistance. They will probably have to pay the fine for not having insurance.
Our area has already seen a large petrochemical plant discontinue health insurance because the fine from the Feds is actually cheaper. They just walked in one day and announced that everyone had on month of coverage and that the company would give everyone $600/year. To help pay for employees coverage. How can anyone get a policy for that amount?
Donít tell the Lord how big the problem is, tell the problem how big the Lord is.
