by why do you think the Fishwrap won’t tell you?
Now just why do you suppose Vail Resorts did this?
If you or someone you know – had a seasonal job with Vail Resorts – next year promises to be different than last year – when it comes to any medical coverage benefit you had from VR.
It’s gone. (Click Here) to read the entire letter to employees.
It’s obvious isn’t it? The medical/benefits costs due to the upcoming requirements of Obamacare are making it much more expensive for Corporations to provide their employees with ongoing medical benefits.
But gee…don’t worry folks the so call State “Insurance Exchanges” mentioned in VR’s letter are not completely available as of this writing (14JUL2013)
Obamacare – the Myth exposed
A reasonable question – if Obamacare is REDUCING Medical costs for Corporations (read: employee benefits) – then why is Vail Resorts (and no doubt other Corporations) dropping Medical coverage for their employees?
Obama’s campaign promise?
Indeed, how does a reasonable person keep an Insurance Plan that is being taken away?
The answer is obvious isn’t it?
Here’s what isn’t so obvious…”Gee…I don’t work for VR, so how could this possibly effect me?”
Here’s just one example of how.
Do you (have you ever?) received any medical services from the Vail Hospital (VVMC)?
Consider – will (the majority?) of part-time/seasonal VR employees end up going without medical coverage at least for part of next year – because the so call “insurance exchanges” are not 100% operational? Will folks be able to afford the increasing costs of private health insurance?
So what happens if any of the (~5000) employees have a ski related injury next year?
The hospital won’t turn folks away. The hospitals costs go up – and the hospital then passes on their additional costs to the folks who do pay for their own health insurance.
Something like this…remember that $200.00 single aspirin pill you paid for during your brief stay at the hospital last year? Well this year it’s likely to be $300.00/per pill. (yes, the ECT knows we’re exaggerating) – to make the point how our local hospital (and no doubt other hospital’s) will recover their additional costs – due to the onset of Obamacare.
Did the ECT mention that your super majority liberal democrat (Obama’s first term 111th Congress – Click Here) has exempted themselves from the Obamacare law/mandate they voted and passed?
This is just the beginning of how Obamacare is and will continue to destroy the greatest Medical care system in the world.
Yes, the ECT knows our former system wasn’t perfect – however it’s much better than what is headed at you and your family today and tomorrow.
