Report: 44 percent of employers considering health cuts

Things could be getting worse for American workers when it comes to healthcare, a report said.

According to the Washington Examiner, 44 percent of companies are considering cutting health benefits to save money as the Affordable Care Act is implemented.

In addition to the cuts, the implementation of Obamacare is also prompted 40 percent of employers to debate the hiring of part-time workers or stop hiring all together.

What's more, they said in the study, "One in five firms indicates they are likely to hire fewer employees, and another one in 10 may lay off current employees in response to the law."

Without Obamacare, most companies said they would bring in additional full-time employees.
