May i ask why a township trustee is even given tax payer provided health insurance? I can see that in a large urban area where as it likely a full time job but cmon..in Belmont county? There are only two cities and one is barely past village status. No wonder the governments are going broke. Most employers that i know of do not offer any health care package close to that for part time employees. They don't even offer the 2400 dollars.

impact, are you saying the article somehow implies the cost of health insurance went DOWN?

When your employer drops your health insurance coverage, which costs the employer $12,760 a year, and instead gives you $2400 a year to buy your own health insurance, that DOESN’T mean the cost went down.

Don’t you wonder why the employer dropped the coverage? Duh...

But fortunately for those employees, they can use that $2400 to buy the Obamacare-fine-tax on their tax return, and then just show up at the doctor of their choice and proudly state “I have Obamacare,” and they’ll get top priority treatment, right? Give that a try and let us know how it goes, Obamacare fans.

But Mike, Trollsucker, the AHCA was supposed to drive up the cost of health insurance. This must be a mistake.

I thought Obamacare was going to take care of all this. Apparently when we passed the bill to find out what’s in it, this wasn’t in it.

At least the $2400 will cover their Obamacare fine/tax. mmm mmm mmm, take a number

"Trustees in Belmont County's Wheeling Township found a way last year to ensure employees have health insurance at a net savings of around $20,000 a year."

Employees found comparable health insurance for $2,400? I dont think so.
