I work as a server for one of the restaurant chains mentioned in a previous post, however my background with the company as a former manager means that it's compulsory for me to help out occasionally with in house HR issues. Especially when it comes to navigating our benefit system, which is limited and kind of tricky.
So, here's my question, and this is not intended to be a put down in any way of the plan. You all already know how I feel, so why go there again?
I want to know, if any of you know, what happens to the people who receive insurance from companies who have gotten waivers, because their insurance programs don't "make the grade" according to the HCR bill, since they are mandated to purchase a certain level of insurance, and their employers are obviously not providing that, and have gotten the okay not to?
These are not wealthy people and can not afford to purchase a second plan.

According to Robert Gibbs, "The waivers are about ensuring and protecting the coverage that people have until there are better options available to them in 2014."
Question: Who defines "better option"? Liberal Lemming Gibbs?
IF that is the case it is my opinion that "better" to him and his boss means Government Health Care (pushing them to medicaid)...
