Walgreens Dumps 160,000 Workers Into ObamaCare “Train Wreck”
More “serious evidence” ObamaCare is hurting the economy. Another large corporate chain is dumping its employees from their current health insurance benefit program because of ObamaCare. Walgreens has just announced that 160,000 employees will soon be left to personally discover the disasters of ObamaCare…the same program that its Democratic creators in Congress want nothing to do with for their own families.
The Weekly Standard reports,
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.
Interestingly, a couple months ago Walgreens announced that it would help “promote” Obamacare. “The nation’s largest drugstore chain is partnering with Blue Cross Blue Shield to promote ObamaCare before the new insurance exchanges open on Oct. 1. Walgreens and the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA) launched a website Wednesday and promised to distribute brochures about ObamaCare at Walgreens stores around the country,” the Hill reported in July.
Just a few months ago, Senator Rockefeller (D-WV), one of the key masterminds behind ObamaCare, warned it was a “train wreck coming”. And the Liberal Democrats put Americans on that train. But, have no fear, as the train (representing 1/6th of our economy) implodes, the Salesman in the White House will reassure us from his teleprompter that we’re imagining the pain.
