ObamaTax "Gotcha!"

By now, you've probably seen the news that, much like your phone bill includes a charge to pay for others' "free" service, come 2014 your new health insurance bill will include one to pay for folks with pre-existing conditions:

"The [$63 per covered person]  charge, buried in a recent regulation, works out to tens of millions of dollars for the largest companies"

Of course, you'll never see that, because employers usually pick up all those costs.

Just kidding!

Here's my favorite quote:

"Most of that is likely to be passed on to workers."

No: all of it will be passed on to employees - employers never pay any health insurance premiums. Never have, never will.
