Most Americans receive their insurance coverage through their employer. Most private health care insurance companies survive from their employer health care plans. And so we come to the crutch of the matter. "...71 of the 100 companies in the Fortune 100 list of large corporations and finds that all of them would save considerable amounts of money by dropping their health care coverage instead of complying with the Obamacare insurance mandate." This is the trigger in Obamacare that ensures the demise of our private health care system and will usher in a governmental one-payer system. When employers drop their private insurance on employees, the government will have to insure those people and private insurance companies will cease to exist

Since most Americans receive their insurance through their employers, they have no idea of what it actually costs. Self employed know exactly what it costs but the rest of the country will soon find out and they will be shocked. I will tell anyone that voted for Obama to shut up when the wailing begins.

binc is right, the parts of Obamacare that have gone into effect specifically the required coverage portions have driven the cost of health insurance up by about 30% since it was passed. So in short, binc, is on the up and up when he says most people don't understand how much their employer pays for health insurance vs the contribution they make.

If you don't have health insurance it's probably for two main reasons. The first being that you can't afford it or two, you're a healthy young person who doesn't feel like they need it at this point in life. Others may not have health insurance due to lack of employer coverage. Regardless, under new ObamaCare rules lacking health insurance results in a large ObamaCare fine/tax, something that forces people to pay for something they can't afford and young people to pay for something they don't need. Not to mention, when people are paying a fine and not receiving healthcare insurance...
