    Roughly 65% of the private sector workforce. Why? You do realize that expenses in the form of insurance premiums and HSA contributions are tax deductible for a business right? Besides, the vast majority of companies, big and small, already offer health insurance.

    So Obama owns the media too.
    He must be wealthier than that poor Romney guy the Republicans had for a candidate

    Deductible does not mean free. 65% of workers are going to be affected.

    That myth was debunked back when Romney was screeching it on the campaign trail.

    These are numbers straight from the CBO.

    In February, the Congressional Budget Office said that 7 million will likely lose their employer coverage thanks to ObamaCare — nearly twice its previous estimate. That number could be as high as 20 million, the CBO says.

    The CBO estimate did NOT say that 7-20 million people would lose their employer coverage. The CBO estimate did say that 7 million people would choose to opt out of employer-offered coverage in favor of insurance from health insurance exchanges or other sources and, though unlikely, up to 20 million could make that same choice.

    Are they richer or poorer for it?
