Until I was laid off last month, my employer paid 3/4 the cost of my medical insurance. Cobra has me paying 100% of the cost ($1500/mo), which is not affordable without an income. A 10% layoff was in response to the new taxes and regulations that go into effect Jan. 1. Many more will be affected by the future layoffs occur as the result of Obamacare. The ignorant majority still be believes government freebies are actually free. They are cost imposed on the shrinking working class. Whether the working will eventually reject slavery or dies off remains to be seen. Either way the freebies will disappear.
