"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure" - 2006 Senator Obama...leadership failure indeed!
So in your world an employer is to blame if they don't increase your salary to may for a federal program?
On that same note, that kind of thinking would make it really easy for me to fire someone so that I could afford to pay the rest of the employers more to cover their Unaffordable Care Act costs.

Pretty much most of the insurance carriers are converting their group insurance plans next year to be in alignment with the Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, etc. that are available on the Exchanges. You should not expect much discounting from the Exchange prices.
So those with insurance are going to see their premiums, copays, and deductibles skyrocket....and those without insurance largely won't bother to sign up or pay anyway. And many doctors and hospitals are opting out altogether.
This is going just great so far.
The part that stuns me about this, is close to 100 million people might get the shaft here... I didn't see that in any of those shiny Obamacare brochures.
And isn't it interesting that they wanted to cover the 30 million without coverage by force, and when it is all said and done they will claim success by touting some 94 million in the exchange market, and they will be the same people that they kicked off their policies in the first place? IOW, they are creating the crisis, to fix the very crisis they created, meanwhile not doing a damned thing to actually get the original 30 million uncovered.
