The fee is supposed to be phased out over time. From the same article you linked to:

The fee will total $12 billion in 2014, $8 billion in 2015 and $5 billion in 2016. That means the per-head assessment would be smaller each year, around $40 in 2015 instead of $63.

I don't care if this ends up being passed down to me. It's about $2.50 a paycheck. I'd rather pay that than have my deductible increase by another $500, which was previously happening every year after we went to the high-deductible health plan (but didn't this year, thank goodness...).

We probably would not have had all of this drama if we'd just gone to universal health care like pretty much everyone has in Europe.
