The ObamaTax doesn't affect you

Well, unless you call theft "affecting me."

As Bob pointed out yesterday, large companies aren't stupid - they simply find ways to manage the stupidity raining down on them from Capital City. Sometimes, though, it's not just raining, but pouring.

Case in point? Delta Airlines:

"The [ObamaTax] requires large employers to pay an annual fee of $63 per covered participant in 2014. For Delta’s roughly 160,000 enrolled active and retired employees and their family members, this represents more than $10 million added to the cost of providing health care next year."

Remember also that employers don't pay this fee: customers do. So next time you fly. remember to tip your friendly TSA groper agent and stop grumbling about the extra few bucks you're transferring to folks who - unlike you - actually get those subsidized health insurance rates thanks to the $63 slush-fund Pre-Existing Condition Fee.
