Very much and on that I want out there is this phenomenon I added these exchanges debut.
Companies -- fulltime workers -- do.
The making more than part time so they don't have to -- through the nose on health care.
The -- is particularly pronounces the fast food restaurant industry and doesn't CKE restaurant's CEO and -- -- -- -- He's very -- on providing healthcare for all his workers including part time workers -- -- -- you've written brilliantly on this subject.
Utah also a lot of them why they wouldn't take him up on that and a lot of them are young -- indestructible -- more of them said.
It really isn't worth the fun.
It's it's fine.
-- the problem with the problem with the law and what my employees realize and actually at a dinner last night with some of our district managers.
And I said to them how many you have insurance because they asked about Obama care -- your memories their hands.
I -- why did you buy it they'll kind of looked at each other finally one guy says well I thought I might get sick but so what if I told you -- out.
You would it be you don't have to sign up for the insurance you don't have to apply until after your sick.
He said well I wouldn't signed up for the insurance well this is what obamacare did when it took but it took out the pre existing condition.
It really told people the were healthy and -- -- inclined to sign up for insurance anyway because they're young and they can get cared for at the emergency room.
The public you really don't have to sign up for insurance if young healthy people don't sign up for insurance have always sick people sign up the cost of insurance skyrocket.
Do you think this is it changes penalties steeper than I don't know -- that -- -- same -- but that.
I there was a stiffer enforcement provision and that's -- all my guys are really better sign up because.
Just this notion that I'd paid a family -- I'm better off I wouldn't have that option.
Or if if the penalty were higher than the cost of insurance then people would buy insurance but -- the -- the first year it's ridiculously low it's 95 dollars.
Or 1% hearing cubs have you make 50000 dollars a year the maximum penalties 5000.
-- church is going to be two to 3000 and -- -- -- obvious enough they're obviously.
Other rare -- we'll look at it -- big kids too.
Look at it as I don't yeah I think he wrote -- that it -- back under the burden Zimmerman your coverage if I have to.
Why talk to a lot of our places we only have we we -- -- mini med plan to our crew level employees but only about 6% sign up which surprised me it's good coverage of Tony and -- -- So I thought why -- you sign up.
And they said -- -- we -- -- for free at the emergency room that's even cheaper so it it there is a knowledge that they can -- -- ever obamacare did not eliminate that.
You can still get it for free at the emergency room.
-- if you get sick you don't have to sign up until you're -- -- -- -- it's up.
It's a very very.
You're rational law the way they drafted.
I'm still a little bit what you also brought -- that I never thought -- little easier business active than you did and then discovered.
A lot of these young people -- -- be -- -- covered either -- their spouses or you know what parents.
Planned and yet are considered the ranks of the uninsured when in fact they are very much and sure they -- very much covered.
On some wonder -- in the beginning we just got the numbers are way off anyway and we offended -- entire health care system which really was the envy of the world.
For me much fewer people who we thought were uninsured -- who were not or we thought would jump to insurance coverage who are not.
-- they that you're absolutely right -- this this war has created so much uncertainty and as we've discussed before uncertainty in the business community is a killer this was not ready for prime time.
It was a big government partisan solution do something that should of get had a market driven bipartisan solution and now we're here in this -- this is not ready for prime time even the administration knows that and they need to make some changes but they can't I don't know I don't know how you change it in this environment.
Now -- -- -- -- -- do that it's sort of like this force of nature images and moving on and on what kind of Freddy -- deal.
-- Well that Democrats are afraid to propose amendments because they think Republicans want to change the whole -- -- Republicans want to change the whole law so.
Where were kind of at a stalemate with a law that just.
Isn't going to work -- and I'm not attacking the motives of the people that did it but it just also work.
Now I'm just gonna run 200 restaurants and -- drunk on the but anyway Andy always good seeing you thank you.
