The predictions about the impact of Obamacare are disturbing in the extreme. As many as 80 million people whose health plans are provided by their employers could find their coverage canceled because they don’t comply with the law's stringent “one size fits all” requirements.
These projected losses would be in addition to the millions who have already found their coverage cancelled.
We’ve been hearing these forecasts and horror stories for weeks, but the Administration seems focused only on the faulty web page that is still not operating properly, but supposedly will next week. The web page isn’t the issue. The issue is the false belief that centralized government can do things better than the private sector with government playing only a supportive role.
Liberal democratic politicians who voted for this mess are worried it might cost them in next year’s election. It should.
