  Original Published: 8/22/2013 Obamacare isn't set tp take effect until January 1st of next year. But U-P-S is already blaming President Obama's new healthcare plan for its decision to cut 15,000 workers' spouses from its insurance rolls. In a memo to employees, U-P-S said it will discontinue coverage of husbands and wives eligible for insurance with their own employers. U-P-S told the nonprofit news agency, Kaiser Health News, it expects its health care costs to increase more than 11-percent next year. The company blamed several aspects of Obamacare, including its requirement that dependent children be covered up until age 26. In the memo, U-P-S said it's willing to take care of its own, but it will not bear a burden other companies can take on.
