4. $750/yr/uncovered employee who qualifies for a subsidy.
Not one fine. Doesn't seem to distinguish between employee who needs almost full subsidy and one who needs very small partial subsidy.

Why should we be loading more onto businesses in this rotten economy anyway? To make sure they move every last job overseas?

What happened to the idea of handling health care coverage like most of the Europeans do, by cutting out the costs of private insurers and restoring higher tax rates for the top bracket?
