Boeing, Boeing, Gone?

Aircraft manufacturer Boeing announced Obamacare has caused them to cut benefits and increase premium contributions. While Obamacrap is not the only reason, it was given at least partial credit. According to the folks at ABC News:

Boeing said deductibles and copayments are going up significantly for some 90,000 nonunion workers.

The company cited three major reasons for the cost shift, including untamed health care inflation, the effects of the new law, and lifestyle issues including being overweight and lack of exercise.

Spokeswoman Karen Forte said Boeing is concerned that its relatively generous plan will get hit with a new tax under the law in 2018, but that the company would have made the changes anyway.

So much for "if you like the plan you have you can keep it."

Not happening.
