    What is the word on what medical plans (and associated costs) Pfizer is offering employees and retirees for 2014?

    Depends on the state exchange. No way Pfizer going to offer Cadillac health plans at $20,000 a year when they can dump you on a state exchange for $2,500.

    If Frank thinks he can save that much money on every employee it will be HR's number one priority to work on using healthcare exchanges. My predictions:

    For active employees the same medical plans for 2014 but everyone gets moved into PRIVATE healthcare exchanges starting in 2015.

    For retirees, move them all into PUBLIC healthcare exchanges as soon as possible. The notion that 25-30 years of work at Pfizer entitles a person to get 25-30 years of a very comfortable retirement paid for by Pfizer is dead.

    It's the usual American story. We spent all our time and energy fighting changes in healthcare instead of working TOGETHER to create something really good - now we'll all get screwed by big corporations who will exploit the situation to maximize their profits at our expense. And you'll all blame Obama. Duh!!!!! It's a classic case of natural selection.........

    It is Obama's fault. Dumbass knows nothing about the medical system but thought he was smart enough to change it and instead it's ruined.

    But you're right that it will wait until 2015 because Obama gave waivers to his big corporate cronies until after the 2014 congressional elections. Once the election is over, given an electoral victory for the Dems, the waivers will end, corporations will drop health coverage and pay back their dem buddies with huge donations as a thank you.

    It's not natural selection, it's unholy corruption.

    don't want your tax payer dollars going to support the poor?

    Then quit claiming you want a Christian nation, because you don't.

    Maybe a person wants to help the poor.....but they do not want our non-Christian government being the decision maker and handler of their money. After all, the Gov has mishandled billions and billions of our tax dollars throughout the years

    great, on to question 2: "based on biblical teaching, do you accept the following as fact: talking snakes? "yes, Genesis 3:1"
    talking donkeys? "yes, Numbers 22:28!"

    Gods that impregnate humans?
    "of course"
    unicorns?
    "yes, Numbers 22:22"
    dragons?
    "absolutely - Deuteronomy, Job, Psalms, Isaiah, Jeremiah and Malachi all speak of dragons"

    What about suicidal, demon possessed, cliff jumping pigs?
    "so it is written in Mark 5:13"

    and finally, did you do as I commanded and sell each and every one of your possessions and give all your money to the poor?

    "well, wait, do what?"

    yeah - Luke 14:26 and Luke 18:18-22! I said it twice for Pete's sake! You have to sell everything you own to be able to inherit eternal life

    "seriously, I thought that was metaphorical"

    As a recent retiree (2 years ago) I am expecting to see a change in the Retiree Healthcare Program within no more than one year. By change I mean a stipend from the company to purchase our own insurance wherever we can get it.

    Company can lock down it's costs, reduce administrative and personnel costs and transfer responsibility to the retiree.

    At some point this has to happen for active employees as well.

    I am expecting "the letter" any day now telling retirees Good Luck and Good Riddance. Things msy noy be too much worse for retirees than the Medicare Carve Out plan in effect for the last couple of years is now. It is a very high deductible and literally pays nothing. Pfizer knew Obamacare was on the horizon and started planning and changing coverages a few years ago. Pfizer supports Obama - what more can be said.

    The democrats have screwed our citizens. They told the uninformed that Obamacare would lower costs and increase coverages. Ha. It's the reverse of that. Now, people are finding out the truth that "yeah, monthly rates may be a little less in some instances," but people are now learning that the deductibles have doubled, tripled and quadrupled and they have higher monthly premiums.

    Thanks to B.O., Reid, Pelosi for "taking care of us," and passing a bill that wasn't even read to know the pitfalls and glitches. Idiots should be voted from office.

    Who said it was Christian nation? And why would a Christian nation elect a Muslim to be president?

    It is Obama who is destroying the healthcare system. He is the dumbest, least competent president this nation has seen except for Jimmy Carter. But he lies more boldly and blatantly than Bill and Hillary ever could lie and get away with it.

    When is enough enough? Where's the American people's "red line" I'm sick of paying all these taxes for shit I don't support or don't want. I don't want to live in a socialistic society, and sadly, that's what America is becoming. We are more divided then ever, and that never leads to anything good.

    Thank Jeff Kindler, Sally Sussman,,,,you know the drill. Pfizer got a back door deal. Ian Read installed last week on Obama's Jobs and Export Council. Back scratching is how this works.

    It is pretty clear now how this will all go down. Employers got a year delay in their mandate. This gives them one year to allow the exchanges to be fully in place for 2015 when all employers with >50 employees will have to provide insurance. Now what do you think most to all of the employers will do for 2015?? They will enroll their employees in the exchanges that have much higher out of pocket expenses for the employee. Only now are people realizing that the exchanges are offering much higher out-of-pocket expenses. Companies love shifting costs away from them. Insurance companies love saving money by making the insured use less health care and have to pay much more themselves. It is the employee who gets screwed with Obamacare.

    Actually you and your fellow retirees have been screwing the citizens. You've only paid for one-third of the medicare dollars you'll all sucking up. The working stiffs in this country have been paying for your expensive healthcare while you're trying your best to stop other people from getting affordable healthcare. You're a grey hypocrite. If I had my way I'd reduce your medicare coverage from 80% to 30% of your expenses (hey, that's what you've paid for). Then you'd be joining the real world we all have to live in.

    Obamacare was written with the expectation that the healthcare coverage big companies offered their employees wouldn't change. If corporate leadership see this as an opportunity to make even bigger profits by dumping employees onto either private or public healthcare exchanges the shame of that is on them. You'd have to be dumb as a rock to blame Obama when corporate leadership screws you. Oh wait - they've been screwing you for the past 10 years and you still haven't figured it out.........

    You have to be dumb as a rock not to understand that it is Obamacare that will ALLOW companies to dump their employees into a higher cost health exchange. They call them morons for a reason. Same folks that devised Obamacare and wrote the law to allow this to happen, among lowering the quality of everyone's healthcare in the process. When people really see how much more they will be paying in premiums for less healthcare benefits, they will revolt against the Libtards. Like Krauthamer said, when the other side is trying to commit ______, let them. All the Republicans need to do is stay out of the way.
