Under ObamaCare, [a survey of America's largest firms shows] these large employers can save serious money by dropping coverage. Among the 71 firms responding, the estimated savings come to $28.6 billion in 2014 alone and $422.4 billion through 2023. This is despite the law’s penalty of $2,000 per full-time employee paid by companies that decide not to pay for coverage. The net savings per dropped employee would be $4,821, on an after-tax basis, in 2014.
