You can bet there will be businesses that go to their employees and say we can't afford to pay for your insurance as the cost is too costly to sustain. But we know you need health insurance and can give you a raise but we're sorry it's minimal as we have to pay the fine.
Same applies to companies when they hit the 50 employee threshold. Businesses react to added cost of doing business head on and they will do everything to minimize these cost. If that means all new hires are all part time to keep under the 50 employee threshold that is what they will do.
This whole Obamacare issue is a disaster in so many ways. The Dems had full control of all three branches of government and jammed this diabolical down the throat of the American people and had to buy off some of their own Dem members to get it passed, without one Pub vote. This is what you get when you don't have a true bipartisan bill of this nature.
