UPS to Stop Insuring Spouses - Blames Obamacare

Post  Gomezz Adddams on Wed Aug 21, 2013 7:19 pm

And the drumbeat continues.

"Rising medical costs, "combined with the costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, have made it increasingly difficult to continue providing the same level of health care benefits to our employees at an affordable cost," UPS said in a memo to employees.
....

UPS becomes one of the highest-profile employers yet to bar working spouses from the company plan. Many firms already require employees to pay a surcharge for working-spouse medical coverage, but some are taking the next step by declining to include them at all, consultants say."

This must be wrong. I heard Obama myself: "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it".
