It's quite depressing to watch the disaster that is ObamaCare unfold before our very eyes.
Yesterday we learned that Universal Studios will be added to the list of employers who are dropping healthcare coverage for part-time workers thanks to ObamaCare. Last fall Darden Restaurants announced its intentions cut full-time worker hours in order to bring employee hours under the ObamaCare threshold. These types of changes aren't just exclusive to private companies. Government employees in Virginia will see their hours reduced in order to avoid ObamaCare penalties associated with providing coverage for full-time employees.
Those are just some of the examples of how businesses and employees may be affected. Let's not forget that the Congressional Budget Office estimated that in less than 10 years, ObamaCare may lead to 7 million Americans losing their employer-provided insurance coverage. So much for Obama's promise that if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it. Where will these people likely to turn to in order to gain coverage? The government. They will turn to the ObamaCare health insurance plans, which the IRS estimates will cost a family of four $20,000 per year. Oh, and did I mention that this is the cheapest plan they will be able to find?
This doesn't even touch on the quality of care that is expected to diminish thanks to new pressures added from ObamaCare, particularly in changes in how providers are paid. Anyone who looks to the quality of care provided by national health agencies like in Great Britain as a beacon of hope is just plain dumb.
