CBS reports this morning that Walgreens is altering its health care plan for 160,000 workers due to Obamacare: The plan, as CBS explains, is to protect the company from rising health care costs. Now who will cover the costs? The employees. In short, the move is to protect Walgreens from Obamaacre. “Rising health-care costs and a climate of change brought about by the new federal health law are prompting American corporations to revisit the pact they've long had with employees over medical benefits. … Aside from rising health-care costs, the company cited compliance-related expenses associated with the new law as a reason for the switch,” as the Wall Street Journal reports.
