What do you think about this....?

Several stories out there on the web indicating AT&T could look at saving billions by dropping health care and paying the penalty instead.......from Director Blue, Doug Ross...and Pirates Cove

DB:

AT&T estimates that it can save upwards of $4 billion annually by dropping health care coverage and paying the penalty tax instead

You know how President Obama relentlessly marketed his health care takeover with the slogan 'If you like your current health care plan, you'll be able to keep itTM'?
Here's a news flash that you won't see in the legacy media: he lied.
Someone inside AT&T leaked an internal Powerpoint presentation that measured the financial impact of DemCare

AT&T estimates that it can save upwards of $4 billion annually by dropping health care coverage and paying the penalty tax instead.

They'd be foolish to keep their health care benefits and, in fact, shareholders should demand the company capture that income and return it in the form of increased dividends and R&D.

Like the Soviet central planners of a bygone era, today's Democrats are marching us into an abyss of unintended consequences for our entire health care system. They're pushing us, shoving us, against our will, over a cliff of fiscal irresponsibility. They're killing a legacy of prosperity that we could otherwise bequeath to subsequent generations.

The modern, hard left Democrat Party leadership is intentionally trying to destroy the Republic: open borders, votes for felons, statehood for Puerto Rico -- using any and all means to gain the votes necessary to stay in power, no matter how catastrophic the effects are on the country.

As someone told me a while back: it's November or never.

Pirates Cove........

The great mystery surrounding the historic health care bill is how the corporations that provide coverage for most Americans - coverage they know and prize - will react to the new law's radically different regime of subsidies, penalties, and taxes. Now, we're getting a remarkable inside look at the options AT&T, Deere, and other big companies are weighing to deal with the new legislation.

Internal documents recently reviewed by Fortune, originally requested by Congress, show what the bill's critics predicted, and what its champions dreaded: many large companies are examining a course that was heretofore unthinkable, dumping the health care coverage they provide to their workers in exchange for paying penalty fees to the government.  READ MORE AT PIRATES COVE
