    You are wrong on this…my GF paid $23 last year for health care, first time in years! THIS YEAR..$682 BUCKS…she only makes 800 a month, so how does she pay her bills and afford health care….it was a scam to get votes only….what it did was give businesses an OUT so they wouldn’t have to pay health care to their employees, and drop most full time employees to part time..forcing them onto Obamacare…lets get something that is truly affordable.
