    Denny's offers three plans according to your info:

    • A real Aetna Choice plan that looks like real health insurance PPO

    • A catastrophic plan

    • A so-called "mini-plan" with $25,000 coverage max (like McDonald's and Walmart use to claim higher percentages of insured)

    Metz claims that ACA will cost him an additional $5000 per year per employee, or $175,000 per store per year, so clearly 35 of the employees in a given store do not have health insurance.

    Right. So when you wake up one morning and have to go to the ER with some dreadful malfunction, the hospital will end up taking all of your stuff and then the taxpayers will pick up the difference.

    Would you have preferred that the ER turn you away? If you seriously think that you mind your own business and that universal healthcare infringes on your liberty, then support the right of the hospital to demand payment or insurance before allowing the amberlamps to drop you off.

    Do you really want a hospital to turn your family member away? Would not not kick and scream about all the taxes you have paid and never drawn a nickel of welfare?

    Seriously, the time has come. The way we have been doing this is wrong. It's always been wrong.

    Nova, Obamacare states a minimum coverage plan level, and if you don't meet it, you are fined. The "mini-plan" like McDonald's does not meet that level, that is why the HHS gave them a waver last year. They too will be paying the 5,000 year fine. So clearly 35 out of the 35 employees can have some level of coverage as is, but not to the level obamacare dictates.

    learn some thing please.

    There is nothing to learn there. The "mini-plan" is not comprehensive health insurance and doesn't facilitate preventative care. It pays for a broken wrist, maybe.

    The goal here is not "some coverage". If that were the case, then Denny's could simply have an in house policy of paying up to $1000 for each employee and call themselves 100% insured. It's not acceptable.

    You better come up with statistics and links from unbiased sources to back this up or you should be banned for spreading lies.

    Nova, many more are now then before, and its getting worse because of this law.

    Fact is Medicare is going broke, Obamacare takes 700 billion out of it to fund Obamacare, while at the same time puts 30+ million more people into that program.

    If you decrease the funds, increase the people, that will force you to decrease the payments made for their treatments. Hospitals will in turn have no choice but refuse treatment due to lack of payment. Their cost will not be covered.

    Now your saying there is nothing to learn here, that some thing is not better then the now nothing they all will be forced to have. That they now are better off with nothing at all?

    Plus learn math.
