The health-care laws treatment of larger employers is almost laughably complicated. If youve got fewer than 50 employees, nothing is asked of you, and if youre willing to provide insurance for your employees, you get a giant tax credit, at least for awhile.
But if youre a business with more than 50 full-time employees, matters become considerably more complex.
If youve got more than 50 full-time employees and you already offer them health insurance, you can stop reading now. Youre in the clear.
If youve got more than 50 full-time employees and you dont offer them coverage and you dont pay them enough to buy coverage on their own without using subsidies, then you have to pay $2,000 for each employee, except for your first 30 employees.
If youve got more than 50 full-time employees and you offer some of them coverage but others have to apply for federal subsidies and buy coverage themselves, then you pay the lesser of $3,000 for each employee receiving insurance subsidies or $2,000 for each full-time employee, once again excluding the first 30 employees.
Weird, right? But the complexities of this policy obscure a huge win for employers...

delusional leftie... is their any other kind?
How many business has Ezra Klein founded or run?
Odd, is it not, that scribbling in a newspaper seems to make one all-knowing and able to explain to a pizza company how it should run its business.
This turd Ezra Klein....send his sorry arse over to Israel and let him deal the Hamas for a few days or Hezbollah for another few...
Maybe over to Russia where they have real anti-semites not just the posers we have here. Maybe to North Korea to deal with real communists....lets see how well he does out there.
This punk is like 26 or something. I have golf shoes older than he is.....and they are smarter than he is too.
Ezra Klein’s business credential is .... ?????
Why anybody would listen to him is beyond me.
Gosh, this must be the figgerin’ that made all those unions apply for waivers.
And the Post of all places. The paper must have become too conservative. lol Their record is illustrious, but reporters are leaving, and so are readers in droves. Ignorant, arrogant people close their minds thinking their way is the best/only way while sliding down the wastepipe. European attitudes were exactly the same before 2007.
Yep, total idiot. This whopping assumption is that private carriers will still exist or won't massively raise costs.
“If youve got more than 50 full-time employees and you already offer them health insurance, you can stop reading now. Youre in the clear.”
In the clear except you will be required to pay higher premiums because of the coverage dictates of Obamacare. Many will find it cheaper to simply pay the fines and let their employees get their “insurance” from the government (which was the idea all along, of course).
They need him in the front office over at the Post, and in a hurry, because , according to this article from the New York Times http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/2961032/posts, the Washington Post is going bust even faster than the New York Times.
Translation: Things are going to get more expensive across the board, but don’t worry! We’re making Big Business pay the government for their nasty practices of cutting costs so that you don’t have to pay as much for your food. Isn’t that worth having to stretch the same amount of money you make now even further?
I look forward in hope for a day when Cokie Roberts has to start working part time at a Big Lots to make ends meet — and finds that one of her old pals from the WaPo is already on staff.
