The new unintended consequence of Obamacare AKA Affordable Care act is that major companies are telling their retirees that instead of providing health insurance for them they will be given a voucher to buy heatlth insurance in a private exchange. The conpanies are saying the rising costs of retiree healthcare are getting out of hand. So they are going from a defined benefit in healthcare insurance to a defined contribution. Sounds like the change from pension plans to 401K's. Companies that make this change do not pay any fines or otherwise suffer any legal consequence.
